On February 1, 2013, Hall learned that he was bequeathed 500 shares of common stock under his father’s will. Hall’s father had paid $2,500 for the stock in 2008. Fair market value of the stock on February 1, 2013, the date of his father’s death, was $4,000 and had increased to $5,500 six months later. The executor of the estate elected the alternate valuation date for estate tax purposes. Hall sold the stock for $4,500 on June 1, 2013, the date that the executor distributed the stock to him. How much income should Hall include in his 2013 individual income tax return for the inheritance of the 500 shares of stock that he received from his father’s estate?
