The amount of cost Cory should use to determine the gain on the condemnation is \$581,000

Explanation:

Carrying amount \$575,000

appraisal fees to support a \$750,000 value \$2,500

attorney fees for the closing with the state \$3,500

Attorney fees to review contract to acquire replacement property \$3,000

Title insurance on replacement property \$4,000

The amount of cost Cory should use to determine the gain on the condemnation compared to \$750,000 received from state = Carrying amount + appraisal fees to support a \$750,000 value + attorney fees for the closing with the state

= \$575,000 + \$2,500 + \$3,500 = \$581,000

The Attorney fees to review contract to acquire replacement property and Title insurance on replacement property reduces the net proceeds from the state thereby decreasing the gain. The \$3,000 and \$4,000 amounts pertaining to the replacement property are not associated with the existing property and do not affect the gain on its condemnation.
