first to properties with unrealized appreciation in proportion to their respective amounts of unrealized appreciation before such increase (but only to the extent of each property’s unrealized appreciation), and first to properties with unrealized depreciation in proportion to their respective amounts of unrealized depreciation before such decrease (but only to the extent of each property’s unrealized depreciation), and For purposes of subsections (a), (b), and (c), a partner who acquired all or a part of his interest by a transfer with respect to which the election provided in section 754 is not in effect, and to whom a distribution of property (other than money) is made with respect to the transferred interest within 2 years after such transfer, may elect, under regulations prescribed by the Secretary, to treat as the adjusted partnership basis of such property the adjusted basis such property would have if the adjustment provided in section 743(b) were in effect with respect to the partnership property. The Secretary may by regulations require the application of this subsection in the case of a distribution to a transferee partner, whether or not made within 2 years after the transfer, if at the time of the transfer the fair market value of the partnership property (other than money) exceeded 110 percent of its adjusted basis to the partnership. At the corporate level, a nonliquidating corporate distribution can also have varying tax consequences.The distribution may have no tax effect, or it may trigger corporate-level capital gain and/or ordinary income. 720-2nd, Partnership Transactions—Section 751 Property, analyzes the federal income tax consequences of (1) a sale or exchange of a partnership interest where the partnership owns a §751(a) property (i.e., unrealized receivables and inventory items) and (2) a distribution from a partnership owning §751(b) property (i.e., unrealized receivables and inventory items which have appreciated substantially in value) where such distribution has the effect of changing the proportionate interests of the partners in the §751(b) property.

first to any unrealized receivables (as defined in section 751(c)) and inventory items (as defined in section 751(d)) in an amount equal to the adjusted basis of each such property to the partnership, and if the basis to be allocated is less than the sum of the adjusted bases of such properties to the partnership, then, to the extent any decrease is required in order to have the adjusted bases of such properties equal the basis to be allocated, in the manner provided in paragraph (3), and then, to the extent any increase or decrease in basis is required in order to have the adjusted bases of such other distributed properties equal such remaining basis, in the manner provided in paragraph (2) or (3), whichever is appropriate.

Rights to Payment for Goods Delivered or to Be Delivered 1. The amount so recharacterized roughly corresponds to the amount of ordinary income the partnership would have if it sold the §751(a) property, thus preventing a partner from converting into a capital gain the ordinary income that would pass through if the partnership sold the property.
