Facts:

Keith Hamilton is employed as an airline pilot for Flyby Airlines in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jennifer is employed as a teacher’s assistant at Small World Elementary School, in Henderson, Nevada. Keith and Jennifer live in a home they purchased this year. Keith and Jennifer have three children who lived with them all year, Joshua (17), Danielle (14), and Sara (10). Keith and Jennifer provided the following personal information:

Keith and Jennifer do not want to contribute to the presidential election campaign.

Keith and Jennifer do not claim itemized deductions.

Keith and Jennifer live at 3678 Blue Sky Drive, Henderson, Nevada 89052.

Keith’s birthday is 10/12/1970 and his Social Security number is 535-22-4466.

Jennifer’s birthday is 7/16/1973 and her Social Security number is 535-44-2255.

During 2015, Keith and Jennifer received $550 in interest from Las Vegas municipal bonds, $1,070 interest from U.S. Treasury bonds, and $65 from their savings account at SCD Credit Union. Keith and Jennifer are joint owners of the Las Vegas city bonds and the U.S. Treasury bonds. They have a joint savings account at SCD Credit Union. Page C-2

On January 21, 2015, Jennifer was involved in a car accident. Because the other driver was at fault, the other driver’s insurance company paid Jennifer $1,350 for medical expenses relating to her injuries from the accident and $300 for emotional distress from the accident. She received payment on March 15, 2015.

Keith’s father died on November 15, 2014. Keith received a $100,000 death benefit from his father’s life insurance policy on February 8, 2015.

On February 15, 2015, Keith hurt his arm on a family skiing trip in Utah and was unable to fly for two weeks. He received $4,000 for disability pay from his disability insurance policy. He received the check on March 2, 2015. Flyby Airlines paid $600 in premiums on this policy during 2015. The disability insurance policy premiums are paid for by Flyby Airlines as a fully taxable fringe benefit to Keith (the premiums paid on his behalf are included in Keith’s compensation amount on his W-2).

Jennifer’s grandmother died on March 10, 2015, leaving Jennifer with an inheritance of $30,000. (She received the inheritance on May 12, 2015.)

The value of the ticket for each passenger was $600.

On April 1, 2015, Jennifer slipped in the Small World Elementary lunchroom and injured her back. Jennifer received $1,200 in worker’s compensation benefits because her work-related injury caused her to miss two weeks of work. She also received a $2,645 reimbursement for medical expenses from the health insurance company. Small World Elementary pays the premiums for Jennifer’s health insurance policy as a nontaxable fringe benefit.

On May 17, 2015, Keith and Jennifer received a federal income tax refund of $975 from their 2014 federal income tax return.

On June 5, 2015, Keith and Jennifer sold their home in Henderson, Nevada, for $510,000 (net of commissions). Keith and Jennifer purchased the home 11 years ago for $470,000. On July 12, 2015, they bought a new home for $675,000.

On July 25, 2015, Keith’s aunt Beatrice gave Keith $18,000 because she wanted to let everyone know that Keith is her favorite nephew.

On September 29, 2015, Jennifer won an iPad valued at $500 in a raffle at the annual fair held at Joshua’s high school.

Keith and Jennifer have qualifying insurance for purposes of the the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

Medical Worksheet

Week 3 Determine Adjusted Book Income:

You are provided with the unadjusted trial balance (Microsoft® Excel) and your manager’s meeting notes and questions (Microsoft® Word) for your new tax client – Phoenix Medical.

Following the notes, modify the unadjusted trial balance to generate a trial balance workpaper (in Microsoft® Excel) that includes:

Adjusting Journal Entries

Adjusted Book Income

Tax Journal Entries

Taxable Income

Answers to your manager’s questions (Microsoft® Word or Excel).

The client depends on you, the CPA, to provide journal entries for activity in fixed assets. While discussing fixed assets, the client divulges that he got a great deal to upgrade his laser dermatology equipment.  Ultimately, you find out that $569,888 of new equipment was purchased and placed in service on 6/18/2014.

Furthermore, and much after the fact, you discover that old medical equipment was sold to an unrelated party for $75,000 cash. The original cost of the equipment was $300,000 and it was fully depreciated (no Sec. 179). The cash was deposited in one of the shareholders personal accounts.

Provide a journal entry to calculate the gain on sale and adjust the fixed asset and accumulated depreciation accounts.

What is the nature of this gain?

Could the Dr. have structured this sale in a different way to avoid taxable income? How?

The client depends on his accountant to provide a journal entry for the annual depreciation expense. They have adopted a policy of treating book depreciation equal to tax depreciation.  Depreciation expense for the year will include:

Depreciation on assets placed in service prior to 2014 is: $86,769

Maximize Sec. 179 expense on assets placed in service in 2014.

Take Sec. 168(k) – 50% Bonus – on new equipment if applicable.

Week 3 Determine Taxable Income:

Determine taxable income. Show all adjustments in the Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet.  Footnote references are provided to assist you.

The Dr. has filed his prior tax returns on the cash basis.

What questions will you ask to be sure he can continue to file on the cash basis?

You find that in 2014, the Dr. qualifies, and choose to file on the cash basis. His books are kept on the accrual basis. Determine the adjustments needed.

No federal taxes were paid in 2013, and no estimated taxes were paid in 2014.

Within the state tax expense, you find $4,389 is late payment penalties.

While analyzing the financial information, you find that hidden in “Accounts Payable” is $28,953 of accrued salaries. You also find that the salaries were paid in the first week of February.

Does this have an impact on taxable income?

Determine the accrual to cash adjustments for accounts receivable and accounts payable.

A charitable contribution carryforward of $40,000 is available.

Included in insurance expense is $12,523 of  officers’ life insurance. You determine the company is the beneficiary, and  each officer is a greater than 20% shareholder.
