Taxes For Inherited Property


For inherited property or gifted property, the holding period of the grantor usually travels with the property. Therefore it can be sold in a short time for capital gain. Inherited property gets a stepped up basis to market value. Gifted property can take the holding period of the donor and do a 1031 exchange, but you get the old basis. You can choose to take a stepped-up basis but get a new holding period.
