I have an estate in which the deceased owned an interest in an S-Corporation. The only asset in the S-Corp is rental real estate. I assume the only step up in basis will be at the shareholder level. The S-corp will not get any additional depreciation from the step up. On the eventual sale of the real estate, the inherited shareholder will have a capital loss from the stepped up basis to offset the capital gain from the sale.Any comments on my inital thoughts would be helpful.

Your analysis is correct.

You do have to be carefull, though. You only get the capital loss offset on liquidation. Can be a problem with multiple properties.
