This is quick alert for our readers.  Yesterday, the IRS posted Form 8939, Allocation of Basis Increase for Property Acquired from a Decedent, and today, the IRS posted the instructions to the Form 8939.  The Form 8939 has been substantially revised since the last release, and this is the first set of instructions issued by the IRS.
