Husband and wife want to contribute rental property to partnerhsip LLC, both will own 50/50.

Adjusted tax basis of rental property is $50,000, debt on property is $60,000.

1) Is there a $10k gain on this transfer?

2) Is the gain a capital gain?

3) Is a 754 election possible here or even make sense?

Pretty basic questions...I have very few partnership returns...Thanks!

No gain or loss here. See Sec. 721. The assumption by the LLC of the $60,000 in debt will be treated as a $60,000 cash distribution. However, the $60,000 increase in the members' share of LLC debt will be treated as a $60,000 cash contribution. See Sec. 752.

There would be a gain if the LLC had made a corporation election.

A 754 election would not be allowed, nor would it be beneficial.
