Money or property withdrawn by a partner in anticipation of the current year's earnings is treated as a distribution received on the last day of the partnership's tax year. A partner's adjusted basis in his or her partnership interest is decreased (but not below zero) by the money and adjusted basis of property distributed to the partner.

The tax law also provides, however, that for purposes of applying that general rule the term “money” includes marketable securities, and any such marketable securities are taken into account at their fair market value as of the date of the distribution.

When a partnership distributes the following items, the distribution may be treated as a sale or exchange of property rather than a distribution. Inventory items of the partnership are considered to have appreciated substantially in value if, at the time of the distribution, their total fair market value is more than 120% of the partnership's adjusted basis for the property.
