Thanks for reply. I have similar thoughts but if my recall correct past limited partnerships reported with the K1 the return of capital. I repeat I am not sure of regulations but when a LP is liquidated the money received for the units (liquidation funds) does not necessarily represent a purchase price as it may include some other charges for depreciation, etc. This LP called a tax shelter did not do any sheltering for me and now I may even incur a small capital gain. This LP gave no instructions how to handle the amount of money given to purchase the units held & thus liquidate the partnership.

To be absolutely safe reporting the amount given on schedule D would be proper even though it will incur a tax payment. Oh well a capital gain better than a loss.

Thanks again for your observation.
