Maude’s estate should value the land at the date of death of \$3,000,000 and elect the alternate valuation for the dividends of \$800,000 so the total estate value would be \$3,800,000.
Maude’s estate should value the dividends at the date of death of \$1,200,000 and elect the alternate valuation for the land of \$4,000,000 so that total estate value would be \$5,200,000.
