11. ____ A partner contributes $150,000 worth of inventory with a basis of $130,000 to a partnership in exchange for a 15% interest. The contribution is tax free because there is no control requirement for a nontaxable contribution to a partnership.

Barbara receives a guaranteed payment of $60,000 and receives a profit share of ordinary business income of $20,000.

16. _____ Tracey has a $10,000 basis in her partnership interest. At the end of the year, she is allocated $5,000 of partnership profits and is given a cash distribution of $13,000. Tracey will have a capital gain of $3,000 on the distribution because it exceeds her $10,000 basis and will also recognize $5,000 of ordinary income.
