2 Final Project: Memorandum with Appendix Memo To: Bob Jones From: Katie Merritt Date: February 15, 2019 Re: Tax Computations and Advice Based on the information I have received I would calculate the Total Gross Income to be: Capital Gain from Sale of Land: \$8,550,000.00 Estimated Sales from new Business: \$300,000.00 Interest Income (based on ly): \$20,000.00 Dividends (based on ly): \$6,000.00 Total Gross Income: \$8,876,000.00 I am going to give you the calculation of the property disposition capital gains. Please take a look at the numbers and then I will go into my discussion. Disposable Property Capital Gains: (FMV) Sale of the Land \$9,000,000.00 (-) minus Selling Expenses \$500,000.00 = Taxable Sale of the Land \$8,500,000.00 (-) minus Cost Basis \$450,000.00
3 Final Project: Memorandum with Appendix = Total Capital Gain \$8,050,000.00 Business Entity : A partnership and a S corporation for the most part are not treated as a separate tax element. Instead, they are conduits through which income, deductions, losses, and credits pass to the owners' tax returns. In any case, the corporation can elect S election and be treated as a pass through element (Anderson, Pope, and Rupert, 2016.) §1361of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) the corporation must meet qualification requirements to convert to a S corporation (IRC, §1361, 2016.)

S corporation has two primary reasons for electing S corporation, to stay away from twofold taxation on distributions, and the second is to enable corporate losses to move through to the shareholders. Be that as it may, one must also include constrained obligation to the shareholders, as well as free transferability or sale of interest; stocks in the corporation (Small Business Encyclopedia, 2016.) S corporations are responsible for tax on certain inherent gains and passive income. The tax law imposes no restrictions to the number or types of entities that can claim interests in a partnership or stock in a C corporation. Notwithstanding, S corporation shareholders just can be individuals who are U.S. citizens or residents, certain trusts, estates, and qualifying tax absolved organizations, and the quantity of shareholders is constrained to 100. This standard is much less restrictive than in the past because members of a family are presently counted as a single shareholder for purposes of the 100 shareholder limit (Anderson, Pope, and Rupert, 2016.) I trust it is to your greatest advantage to use S Corporation as your business substance. Be that as it may, I must share with you that a shareholder's stock and obligation basis in the S corporation is vital. As a shareholder, your stock as well as obligation basis will fluctuate contingent upon the S corporation's operations. Hence, for both you and your little girl, the
