Tax Consequences

timer Asked: May 5th, 2013

Question Description

Justin and Rachel want to open a restaurant.  They contribute $3,000 each for a survey to locate an appropriate area for their restaurant and $2,000 each for a real estate agent to locate a suitable building for them to buy.  Shortly after this, Rachel and Justin have a disagreement and Rachel walks away from the plan.  Although she asks Justin to reimburse her, he refuses.  Justin then continues the project on his own.  He spends $6,000 for legal and accounting fees to set the business up and $9,000 for staff training.  What are the tax consequences to Justin for these expenditures when the restaurant opens in July?  For Rachel?
