  1. Compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages inherent in electing to become a partnership and a corporation. Indicate key aspects in which the resulting choice is likely to impact tax obligations.
  2. Imagine that you are a Partner at Walk Upright Company. Justify to your team why you elected to become a partnership in an effort to minimize tax liability. Prepare a response to the objection that this election was the best choice.
  3. Imagine that you are the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) at No More Ice, Inc. Justify to your management team why you elected to become a corporation.
  4. Determine whether becoming a corporation was a wise choice as a potential strategy to minimize tax liability as a result. Provide support for your rationale.
  5. Analyze the steps that the leadership in a partnership or a corporation must take in order to change the entity’s existing election. Provide examples of circumstance under which changing the existing election would be appropriate. Indicate how this election change, once complete, may either generate a tax liability or be a benefit. Provide support for your rationale.
