I'm curious how much you normally charge for a 754 election?

Real estate partnerships. Commercial property worth $1-2 million, give or take. One partner sold interest to 2-3 partners.

Of course, I find out about it right now, during prep...

I have experience with 743(b) and 734(b), just my first time doing one on my own.

Since everyone is shy, I'll throw out a figure, and you tell me if it's insanely too high, or way too cheap.

An additional $800 per return?

I don't have experience with this but $800 seems reasonable.

What the 800 relative to the total invoice for last year, or expected for this year.
If you sell it well enough you can probably get 40-50% for the one off complication, but as you know, you need them to understand the value, before they agree to buy it.

I try to target anything with $1mil in gross receipts, or $1mil in assets to be a $3000 tax prep.
Works well for multi member restaurants, and the like.
A little harder on real estate holdings that really have minimal reporting for rental income and expenses.

If anyone remembers my post in the PFZ...this is the client that is around 50% of fair market rates.

$800 is less than 50% of the discounted rate. It would be between 20-33% of the fair market rate.

If the returns were fair market, I might charge over $1,000, but I'm okay with $800 here...

I wouldn't charge any extra for the 754 election. :)

For calculating the 743(b) ADJ?
Probably an extra 500-800. Depends on the complexity and availability of information. I have one that routinely ends up near $1,500/sale (with multiple sales each year), but it's ridiculously complex.
