Could you please help me write this two page memo on a tax law? The instructions are attached.


Thank you!

The facts for your first Tax Research Assignment are as follows: You are a junior tax accountant and you were just hired by your first tax accounting firm. For your first official project a senior accountant in your firm, Sharon Brown, asks you to research a question asked by a client of hers. Her client has multiple sclerosis and can no longer go up and down stairs easily. He and his wife want to install an elevator in their home so that he can access the upstairs. Sharon wants you to research whether her client may deduct as a medical expense the cost of installing an elevator in his house, where the taxpayer has multiple sclerosis. Instructions : Please research the tax law and write Sharon a brief memo of no more than two pages , in which you communicate the results of your research. Use the format for communicating research findings discussed in chapter 15 of your textbook, and use as an example the sample memo found on p. A-6 of Appendix A. Identify relevant statutory, administrative, and judicial authorities and discuss how these authorities affect your conclusion concerning the deductibility of the elevator. * Remember: while IRS publications are useful as secondary sources, they are not primary sources that can be cited and relied upon in a tax research memorandum . Your research assignment will be graded using the following criteria : 1. Recognition of the important facts and issues 2. Correct conclusion 3. Clarity of writing 4. Proper use of relevant sources to support your conclusion and analysis. 5. Proper citation of relevant sources 6. Proper format, spelling & grammar *Please submit your memo as a Word or PDF document into your Tax Research Assignment 1 folder. Please put your last name somewhere in the file name . This assignment is due to me by Sunday, March 29 at 11:59 pm EST .
