Your sister recognizes gain only to the extent of the money she received, $15,000. Her basis in the real property she received was $70,000 (the $70,000 adjusted basis of the real property she exchanged minus the $15,000 received, plus the $15,000 gain recognized).

The depreciation deducted on element X was $4,000 less than it would have been under the straight-line method. Additional depreciation on the property as a whole is $20,000 ($24,000 − $4,000). $20,000 is lower than the $25,000 gain on the sale, so $20,000 is used in Step 2. If a lessee makes a leasehold improvement, the lease period for figuring what would have been the straight-line depreciation adjustments includes all renewal periods.
