Problem

The owner of two office buildings with a combined value of $14.9 million wanted to sell but faced a major problem. After costs of sale and paying the $12 million mortgage debt owed, he would not have enough to pay at close of escrow all the total taxes due, totaling $4.7 million. Consequently, he would be forced to pull out of pocket more than $2.2 million to pay off the balance owed to the IRS and state.  Included in this problem was the Debt Over Basis tax issue that alone triggered $1.6 million of the total amount of taxes owed.
