ACCT 616 TAX RETURN PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS Christy Albright and Dan Ralls formed the Charter Company on 11/30/ 2012, and chose a tax
year ending on 1 1/ 30. Charter was formed to operate a restaurant (111 the Charter Building at
7848 Pesca Dr., San Francisco, CA 94123) and rent out some space in the restaurant building.
Charter elected to be taxed as a partnership, and the income statement for the year ending
11/30/2017 is as follows: Sales $400,000
COGS —150,000
Tax-exempt interest 6,0 0
Interest income 4,0 0
Dividend income from domestic corporations 5,0 0
Nonqualified dividend income from foreign corporations 3,0 0
Gain on sale of equipment 10,0 0
Depreciation —30,0 0
Repairs and maintenance -7,0 0
Rent expense -12,0 0
Salaries to nonpartners —60,0 0
Salaries to partners -30,0 0
Income from real estate rentals 100,000
Expenses from real estate rentals (includes $10,000 of book depreciation) -80,0 0
Gain on sale of stock (held < 1 yr.) 20,0 0
Health Department fines —2,0 0
Investment interest expense -1,0 0
Subtotal $176,000 Charter chooses the accrual method of accounting. The equipment sold was an imported oven
that had been fully depreciated. It originally cost $4,000 on 5/3/2010 and was sold for $10,000
on 6/9/2017. The tax depreciation amount for the year was $20,000, not including $14,000 of Section 179
expense that Charter chose to take on some equipment they purchased, and not including the
$10,000 per year depreciation of the rental real estate, which is included in the $80,000 of costs
above. (Note: according to the Form 4562 instructions, the depreciation from the rental activity would not need to be disclosed on Form 4562) All of the $30,000 of guaranteed payments goes to Christy. Assume that 40% of the investment
interest expense is nondeductible because it relates to the tax-exempt interest. The stock sold
was 1000 shares of Alter Corporation, purchased on 1/20/2017 for $25,000 and sold on
4/10/2017 for $45,000. Page 1 of 3

All of the $54,000 of equipment purchased this year was restaurant equipment, and was 7-year
property eligible for the Section 179 deduction. Aside from the equipment expensed under
Section 179, all of the new equipment was depreciated under MACRS. There is no AMT
adjustment for depreciation except for the adjustment due to the current year purchases ( the net
adjustment for prior year purchases was zero). All of the mortgage debt is qualified nonrecourse
debt, and none of it is payable in the next year.
