Sale of partnership interest

  • 1.  Sale of partnership interest

    My client has 20% of a partnership that owns a commercial building. The client would like to sell his interest in the partnership.  Is it better to have the partnership buy back his interest or the other partners buy it? (I understand that the property could be dropped out to Tenants in Common and then within proper time parameters do a 1031 - but that is not needed). 
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions/guidance on this.

    Either way is fine as you can still do a Section 754. I just recently did it for a client where the partnership bought out the partner.
