<<The heirs are corre correct that the farm was a part of the gross estate of the mother-in-law and therefore eligible for full step-up in basis.>>Thank you for your response. You're the only one who has given any kind of advice. Could I ask you if you know of any written rulings that might support this position? All the various tax professionals that the different children use are saying the same thing - that we must use the donor's adjusted basis. They say if we want to do it any other way, we need to show them proof. !!! Nobody wants to get in hot water with the IRS but on the other hand, its very hard for the lower-income family members to part with a large amount of the sale price. Thanks again for your response
