Judy is a cash basis attorney. In 2010, she performed services in connection with the formation of a corporation and received stock with a value of $3,000 for her services. By the end of the year, the value of the stock had decreased to $1,000. She continued to hold the stock. Judy must recognize $3,000 of gross income from the stock for 2010. 6.

In 2010, Terry received $5,000 from a local cable television company in exchange for Terry allowing the company to run an underground cable across Terry’s property. Terry is not required to recognize income from receiving the $5,000 because it was a return of his capital invested in the land. 15. An accrual basis taxpayer can defer all advance payments for services until the services are performed if the method of accounting for the services is the same for tax and financial reporting purposes. 18. The constructive receipt doctrine requires that income must be recognized when it is made available to the cash basis taxpayer, although it has not been actually received.
