Homework Answers - Chapter 5 29. a. Josh must include the $10,000 in gross income. Because the payment is from his employer, it cannot be treated as a gift. b. Joe is not required to include the worker’s compensation of $12,000 in gross income because these benefits are specifically excluded from gross income. The amount collected of $1,500 on the replacement insurance policy is excluded from gross income because he paid the premiums on the policy. c. The life insurance proceeds of $1 million are excluded from gross income because the recipient (Pearl Corporation) was the beneficiary who collected the insurance proceeds upon death of the insured. d. The life insurance proceeds of $50,000 received by Juan are excluded from gross income, even though the premiums were never included in Leona’s gross income. e. Juan must include his wife’s accrued vacation pay of $5,000 in his gross income because it would have been taxable to Juan’s wife if she had collected it (“income in respect of a decedent”). 33. a.

The $20,000 of interest earned on the life insurance proceeds left with the insurance company is included in Fay’s gross income. c. Fay did not recognize a gain on the bargain purchase.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
