Assignment Geier Textbook - Chapter 1 Page 43 Sheila and Shane are married and have two children: Erik, age 17, who is a junior in high school, and Becky, age 10. Sheila does not work outside the home, and Shane is an electrical engineer who earns $130,000 working as an employee of Tectronics, Inc., in 2015. Together, they also receive $10,000 in interest on corporate bonds and $5,000 in interest on Ohio state bonds. In Chapter 2, you will learn that the interest on the Ohio state bonds is excludable from Gross Income under the authority of § 103. They contribute $5,000 to the Cleveland Orchestra, which is a deductible contribution under § 170. They pay $7,000 in real property taxes on their personal residence to their local Ohio county jurisdiction, and they pay $8,000 in Ohio state income taxes for 2015, both payments of which are deductible under § 164(a). They also pay $6,000 in interest on their home mortgage, which satisfies the definition of “qualified residence interest” within the meaning of § 163(h)(3) and is thus deductible (as explored more fully in Chapter 18). Finally, Shane pays professional dues and travels to several professional association meetings in the field of electrical engineering out of his own pocket in order to keep up to date on the latest information in his field, even though Tectronics, Inc., does not reimburse these costs to Shane. The total amount https://www.cali.org/books/us-federal-income-taxation-individuals-2015 Questions 2 - Use the information from this question (Sheila and Shane) to complete page 2 (only) of Form 1040.
