Unformatted text preview: Dart has accumulated taxable income for 1994. Which step(s) can Dart
take to eliminate or reduce any 1994 accumulated earnings tax?
I. Demonstrate that the "reasonable needs" of its business require the retention of all or part of the 1994
accumulated taxable income.
II. Pay dividends by March 15, 1995.
d. I only.
Both I and II.
Neither I nor II. CPA-02060
Choice "c" is correct. Dart can take both actions to eliminate or reduce any 1994 accumulated earnings
tax. A corporation that can demonstrate that its reasonable business needs require it to accumulate
earnings can escape the accumulated earnings tax on the portion reasonably accumulated. Dividends
paid by the 15th day of the third month after the close of the corporation's tax year reduce the
accumulated earnings subject to the accumulated earnings tax.
Choices "a", "b", and "d" are incorrect. Each of these answers treats either I or II (or both) incorrectly. CPA-02061 Type1 M/C A-D Corr Ans: D PM#32 R 3-01 22. CPA-02061 PII Nov 92 #17 Page 28...
