**Accountants Clarification...**

Very sorry, but I'm not really getting my head around this one.If this is the case, then say you buy units for $200k. In 10 years the property goes to $400k. Trust sells, taxable CG $200k. The income units represent 50% of the trust assets, so the unitholder gets 100k in CG (puts $50k on his tax return). The other $100k can be distributed to other beneficiaries.

__Using this example quoted above from__

*Alex*, as it is easier for me to understand this way - do**Dale or any other****accountants****or lawyers or anyone else**on this forum believe that:**The unitholder gets distributed 100K CG (so 50k in his tax return, after the 50% CG discount), and the other 100k CG gets distributed amongst other beneficiaries.**

**OR****The unitholder gets distributed the whole 200k CG (so 100k in his tax return, after the 50% CG discount).**

**The whole 200k CG can be distributed amongst beneficiaries (does not have to be distributed to the unitholder, and each beneficiary gets a 50% CG discount on the CG distributed to them).**

Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for the clarification.

My understanding has been that option number (1) is how it works??? - and am not sure what issue

*'Ronin'*from the other HDT thread had here, if there are at least some CG that are distributed to the unitholder, even though it may proportionately decrease over time...???
