Year Book and Regular Tax Depreciation AMT Depreciation

2014 391,840 306,080
On March 1, 2014, the company acquired and placed in service additional equipment costing $500,000. The company made the Sec. 179 expensing election for the entire cost of this new equipment. No depreciation or expensing is reported on Schedule A.
The company paid Dr. Bailey a $180,000 guaranteed payment for her management services.
The company made a $56,000 cash contribution to Fort Sanders Hospital System on December 1 of the current year.
During the current year, the company made a $720,000 cash distribution to Dr. Bailey and a $1.68 million cash distribution to Dr. Firth.
The municipal bonds, acquired in 2013, are general revenue bonds, not private-activity bonds. Assume that no expenses of the company are allocable to the tax-exempt interest generated from the municipal bonds.
Assume qualified production activities income (QPAI) equals $2.24 million. Employer’s W-2 wages allocable to U.S. production activities equal $980,000. The company, being an eligible small pass-through partnership, uses the small business simplification overall method for reporting these activities (see discussion for Line 13d of Schedule K and Line 13 of Schedule K-1 in the Form 1065 instructions).
Use book numbers for Schedule L, Schedule M-2, and Line 1 of Schedule M-1. Also use book numbers for Item L of Schedule K-1, and check the box for Sec. 704(b) book.
The partners share liabilities, which are recourse, in the same proportion as their ownership percentages.
Required: Prepare the 2014 partnership tax return (Form 1065), including the following additional schedules and forms: Schedule D, Form 4562, and Schedule K-1.Refer to the facts in Tax Form/Return Preparation Problem C:9-58. Now assume the company is an S corporation rather than a partnership. Additional facts are as follows:
- Drs. Bailey and Firth formed the corporation on January 1, 2013, and the corporation immediately elected S corporation status effective at the beginning of 2013.
- Upon formation of the corporation, Dr. Bailey received common stock worth $1.2 million, and Dr. Firth received common stock worth $2.8 million.
- The balance sheet information is the same as in Table C:9-3 except the equity section is as follows:
|January 1, 2014||December 31, 2014|
- The $180,000 paid to Dr. Bailey is salary constituting W-2 wages (instead of a guaranteed payment). Ignore employment taxes (Social Security, etc.) on Dr. Bailey’s salary.
- Qualified production activities income (QPAI) still equals $2.24 million, but employer’s W-2 wages allocable to U.S. production activities equal $1.16 million (because of Dr. Bailey’s salary). The company, being an eligible small pass-through S corporation, uses the small business simplification overall method for reporting these activities (see discussion for Line 12d of Schedule K and Line 12 of Schedule K-1 in the Form 1120S instructions).
- Use book numbers for Schedule L and Schedule M-1 in Form 1120S.
