1.Sean is in the business of buying and selling stocks and bonds. He has a bond of Green Corporation for which he paid $200,000. The bond is currently worth only $50,000. Discuss whether Sean can take a $150,000 loss for a business bad debt or for a worthless security.
2.On May 9, 2018, Calvin acquired 250 shares of stock in Hobbes Corporation, a new startup company, for $68,750. Calvin acquired the stock directly from Hobbes, and it is classified as § 1244 stock (at the time Calvin acquired his stock, the corporation had $900,000 of paid-in capital). On January 15, 2020, Calvin sold all of his Hobbes stock for $7,000. Assuming that Calvin is single, determine his tax consequences as a result of this sale.
3.Belinda was involved in a boating accident in 2020. Her speedboat, which was used only for personal use and had a fair market value of $28,000 and an adjusted basis of $14,000, was completely destroyed. She received $10,000 from her insurance company. Her AGI for 2020 is $37,000. What is Belinda’s casualty loss deduction (after any limitations)?
4.Heather owns a two-story building. The building is used 40% for business use and 60% for personal use. During 2020, a fire caused major damage to the building and its contents. Heather purchased the building for $800,000 and has taken depreciation of $100,000 on the business portion. At the time of the fire, the building had a fair market value of $900,000. Immediately after the fire, the fair market value was $200,000. The insurance recovery on the building was $600,000. The contents of the building were insured for any loss at fair market value. The business assets had an adjusted basis of $220,000 and a fair market value of $175,000. These assets were totally destroyed. The personal use assets had an adjusted basis of $50,000 and a fair market value of $65,000. These assets were also totally destroyed. If Heather’s AGI is $100,000 before considering the effects of the fire, determine her itemized deduction as a result of the fire. Also determine Heather’s AGI.
5.During 2020, Leisel, a single taxpayer, operates a sole proprietorship in which she materially participates. Her proprietorship generates gross income of $142,000 and deductions of $420,000, resulting in a loss of $278,000. The large deductions are due to the acquisition of equipment and the use of immediate expense and additional first-year depreciation to deduct all of the acquisitions. Can Leisel use all of this loss to offset other income she has? Explain.
Please complete the assigned problems using MS-Excel.

My company selected is dollar general SCENARIO: You are a new hire for a major

My company selected is dollar general
SCENARIO: You are a new hire for a major corporation completing your eight-week rotation relating to accounting, financial reporting, budgeting, cost control, and profit maximization. As part of your rotation you are learning how accounting information is used by managers throughout the organization to make managerial decisions. This report will address the below topics, providing senior management a report introducing, explaining, and providing analysis of the financial reports. Assume senior management does not understand basic accounting concepts and unable to read and interpret the reports without your assistance. Incorporate and explain accounting concepts learned within the course material (readings and discussions) and provide financial analysis as completed within the SEC10K discussion posts.
REQUIREMENT: Prepare a report for your chosen corporation’s senior managers to interpret and explain the SEC10K financial reports. The report should be one to two full in pages in length: single spaced, 12 pt. font, one-inch margins, and in your own words. Make note of the grading rubric which requires you to address project questions, display critical thinking, analysis, research, application of course concepts, write in your own words, and demonstrate a high degree of effective communication (i.e., formal business writing with proper grammar and punctuation).
The following are concepts you should incorporate for discussion within your report:
Review the financial statements as whole, including the Notes to the Financial Statements to learn more about your company. Discuss types of information contained with and the reason for the incorporation of financial statement footnotes.
Review the Statement of Comprehensive Income. What items are displayed in Other Comprehensive Income? What is the importance of providing this financial report?
Does your company own treasury stock (sometimes called “repurchase of stock”) in the owners’ equity section (Statement of Retained Earnings)? Is this value increasing or decreasing? Consider the journal entry approach to the purchase of treasury stock. Treasury stock is displayed on the retained earnings statement/balance sheet as a negative value in owners’ equity. Explain treasury stock, and why treasury stock decreases stockholders equity. Why would a company purchase Treasury Stock? (Hint: Review the www.principlesofaccounting.com website for Treasury Stock concepts. You can list the reasons in an enumerated list.)
