5. After-Discovered or Omitted Property


Has 706 Period of Limitations/Assessement Expired?

File Supplemental

  • 706
  • 8971
  • Schedule A

Basis of After-Discovered Property in Hands of Beneficiary = 0


Note: If the after-discovered property would be eligible for a marital or charitable deduction (if reported on an original or supplemental 706), it is arguable that this property is outside of the "zero-basis" rule. In that case, the basis of that property would equal its DOD or alternate value even if no 706 or supplemental 706 is filed.
