3 b. Smaller of: $195,000 in 2010 (indexed each year) or 100% times highest three years average salaries, or $212,000. Thus, $195,000 is Jacob’s maximum allowable benefit. 91. Determine the maximum annual benefits payable to a participant from a defined benefit plan in the following independent situations: a. Joey, age 69, has been a participant for 16 years, and his highest average compensation for 3 years is $107,000. b. Stacey, age 66, has been a participant for 9 years (11 years of service), and her highest average compensation for 3 years is $131,000. a. $107,000 in 2010. The maximum allowable benefits payable to Joey from a defined benefit plan is the smaller of $195,000 in 2010 (indexed each year) or 100% of his average compensation for his highest three years of employment. b. $131,000 in 2010. The defined benefit plan must reduce Stacey’s maximum benefit payable [e.g., $195,000 in 2010 (indexed each year)] by one-tenth for each year of participation under 10 years (e.g., $195,000 ´ 9/10 = $175,500). Thus, the $131,000 average compensation amount is below the ceiling. 92. Mahendra, age 37, is an employee of a retail outlet. He defers $19,000 in a § 401(k) plan in 2010. Compute any tax ramifications. The $2,500 excess over the $16,500 limit, along with any appropriate earnings, must be returned to Mahendra by April 15, 2011. This $2,500 excess amount plus related income is taxable to him in 2010 and will be taxed again upon distribution (if made after April 15, 2011). There is a 10% tax on his employer on any excess contributions not returned within 2 1/2 months after the close of the plan year. 93. Yao, a self-employed lawyer, has a profit sharing plan with a contribution rate of 15% of compensation. Yao’s earned income after the deduction of one-half of self-employment tax, but before the Keogh contribution, is $260,000. Calculate Yao’s maximum contribution in 2010. The 25% limitation on the employee’s contribution is computed on the first $245,000 in 2010 of earned income. Thus, Yao's maximum contribution in 2010 is $36,750 ($245,000 – .15X = X; X = $213,043). Therefore, $245,000 – $213,043 = $31,957. 13

94. On July 1, 2006, Blue Corporation sold 100 of its common shares (worth $15 per share) to its employee Bobby for $5 per share.

The shares had a value of $26 per share on July 1, 2010. He sold the shares for $30 per share on September 15, 2010. No special election under § 83(b) was made. Identify the correct answer. a. Bobby will be taxed on what amount, if any, on July 1, 2006? (1) Ordinary income of $1,500. (2) Short-term capital gain of $1,500. (3) Long-term capital gain of $1,000. (4) Tax-exempt income of $1,500. (5) None of the above. b. Bobby will be taxed on what amount, if any, on July 1, 2010? (1) Ordinary income of $2,500. (2) Long-term capital gain of $2,500. (3) Ordinary income of $2,100. (4) Long-term capital gain of $2,100. (5) None of the above. c. Bobby will be taxed on what amount, if any, on September 15, 2010?

    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.
