PROBLEMS 24.(LO 1, 4) Jon and Pam each have dividend income of $80,000 {[$100,000 (accumulated E & P) +$60,000 (current E & P)] ÷ 2}. The dividend income will be subject to the reduced tax rate ondividends available to all individuals. The remaining $40,000 of the $200,000 distributionreduces the basis ($20,000 each) in the shareholders’ stock with any excess treated as a capitalgain. Pam has a reduction in stock basis from $11,000 to zero and a capital gain of $9,000. Jonhas a reduction in stock basis from $26,000 to $6,000 (and no capital gain). 25.(LO 1, 2) 26.(LO 1, 2, 3) Sam reports a $550,000 taxable dividend and a $150,000 capital gain. The $600,000gain on the sale of the land increases E & P by that amount. Although Silver Corporation’s totalE & P balance prior to the $900,000 distribution is $250,000 [$600,000 (gain on sale) – $300,000(accumulated deficit) – $50,000 (current year deficit)], current E & P must be examined first.Current E & P before the distribution is $550,000 [$600,000 (gain on sale) – $50,000 (currentyear deficit)]. This current E & P balance triggers dividend treatment for $550,000 of thedistribution. Of the remaining $350,000 distributed, $200,000 is a tax-free recovery of capital and$150,000 is taxed as capital gain (assuming Sam holds the Silver Corporation stock as aninvestment). As a result of the distribution, Sam’s stock basis is reduced to zero. The $300,000deficit in accumulated E & P carries over to the beginning of the next tax year.27.(LO 2) Sparrow Corporation’s current E & P is computed as follows:Taxable income$330,000Federal income tax liability paid(112,000)Tax-exempt interest income5,000Disallowed portion of meals and entertainment expenses (1,500)Life insurance premiums paid, net of increase incash surrender value ($3,500 – $700)(2,800)Proceeds from life insurance policy, net of cashsurrender value ($130,000 – $20,000)110,000Excess capital losses ($ 13,000)Excess of MACRS depreciation over E & P (ADS)depreciation ($26,000 – $16,000)10,000Allowable portion of 2015 § 179 expenses (20% $25,000)(5,000)Dividends received deduction (70% $25,000) 17,500LIFO recapture adjustment10,000Installment sale gain(3,000)* continued
