79. Belinda is trying to decide whether she should accept employment as a salesperson or work as a self-employed sales representative. The salesperson job pays $70,000 and includes $3,600 of insurance benefits under a qualified health plan. In contrast, the sales representative position pays $90,000 but Belinda would also need to pay self employment tax of $12,700 and purchase health insurance for $4,000. To help Belinda decide, compute her AGI for both positions. $70,000 and $79,650 = ($90,000 - ($12,700 x 1/2) - $4,000). Feedback: The AGI for the salesperson is $70,000 (the insurance benefits are excluded from gross income). The AGI for the sales representative is the compensation less the deduction for half of the self employment tax and the deduction for self employed heal insurance.
