Capital loss on series of liquidating distributions Hookupsonline
As a passive partner (I believe that) I could not deduct those loses, so have been dutifully carrying them forward every year on form 8582.
In 2016 all of the assets of the LLC were bought (for cash) by another company.
Internal Revenue Service Form 1099-DIV, Dividends and Distributions, is a recordkeeping document that shows stock distributions received during the year.
Or, if that's wrong, in what way is this different from a capital-gain and taxation point of view?
gain shall not be recognized to such partner, except to the extent that any money distributed exceeds the adjusted basis of such partner’s interest in the partnership immediately before the distribution, and loss shall not be recognized to such partner, except that upon a distribution in liquidation of a partner’s interest in a partnership where no property other than that described in subparagraph (A) or (B) is distributed to such partner, loss shall be recognized to the extent of the excess of the adjusted basis of such partner’s interest in the partnership over the sum of— except to the extent provided in regulations prescribed by the Secretary, any interest in a precious metal which, as of the date of the distribution, is actively traded (within the meaning of section 1092(d)(1)) unless such metal was produced, used, or held in the active conduct of a trade or business by the partnership, except as otherwise provided in regulations prescribed by the Secretary, interests in any entity if substantially all of the assets of such entity consist (directly or indirectly) of marketable securities, money, or both, and to the extent provided in regulations prescribed by the Secretary, any interest in an entity not described in clause (v) but only to the extent of the value of such interest which is attributable to marketable securities, money, or both.

The company would send me a 1099 tax form filled "only" with Col-8 for Cash distribution / Liquidation. These distributions are, at least in part, one form of a return of capital. You will receive Form 1099-DIV from the corporation showing you the amount of the liquidating distribution in box 8 or 9, in your case they were cash in box 8.
Any liquidating distribution you receive is not taxable to you until you have recovered the basis of your stock.
