Solutions for Midterm Exam 1 (with selected explanations) Note: The first number given is the number of the question on Version A, the second Version B. For example, “1/23” means the first question on Version A and the 23 rd question on Version B. 1/23 C 2/24 B 3/25 C 4/1 A 5/2 D 6/3 C “D” was also attractive to many students, requiring that each of the three situations create an independence problem under the rules and guidelines discussed in class (Ch. 3 slides). “A” likely isn’t problematic, as this executive doesn’t have significant financial reporting responsibilities. “B” is also OK, as the advice is consistent with prior IRS rulings and should meet the “more likely than not to be upheld” standard. “C” is an impermissible contingent fee. 7/4 C “A” was selected by a number of students.

The referenced Exhibit 2.3 makes clear that it oversees financial reporting in addition to the internal and external audit functions. 16/13 B 17/14 C 18/15 D 19/16 E D was also frequently selected. However, you are a covered member by virtue of being a partner in the same office as the lead partner (Ch. 3 discussion). That, in and of itself, doesnt create an independence problem. 20/17 C 21/18 B 22/19 D 23/20 B 24/21 A 25/22 C...
