...Return 1 Harold and Sarah’s Federal Return Carla Sroufe ACC401 Christine Errico October 15, 2012 Return 2 Harold and Sarah’s Federal Return To complete Harold and Sarah’s Federal tax return, Form 1040 was the form that was chosen when using Tax Act CD. Form 1040 or 1040A are the forms that are required when itemizing deductions. The Petersan’s have many deductions that may help them reduce the tax they owe. I used Schedule A to report the sale of the house, medical expenses, and the mortgage interest. The medical expenses are the medical insurance that both Sarah and Harold had contributed through payroll payments. They both contributed $1,347 which equals $2,694. The real estate taxes are the taxes paid on the property for the year which was $1,500. The mortgage interest was also reported on Schedule A in the amount of $14,400. The total for Schedule A on line 40 is $18,014. The adjusted AGI for Harold and Sarah is $90,916. After subtracting the itemized deductions, the amount is $72,902. I used Form 2441 to configure the Child and Dependent Care expenses. This form helped to configure how much the Petersan’s can report for child care expenses. The maximum amount that can be considered out of the $10,320 is $3,000 for a qualified dependent. With consideration of the AGI, the decimal amount .20 was used to determine the amount that is allowable for the child care expenses. The total amount that the Petersan’s can report is $3,000......

Tax Saving Moves for the Rest of 2013

...A new Tax Planning & Practice Guide—Tax Saving Moves for the Rest of 2013—is now available on Checkpoint. (Tax Planning & Practice Guide ¶  101  10/15/2013) It is designed to facilitate year-end tax planning in a challenging environment that includes higher top income tax rates for ordinary income, capital gains and dividends; uncertainty surrounding the extension of dozens of expiring individual and business tax provisions at year's end; and the imposition of two new taxes on higher-income individuals—a 0.9% payroll tax on wages and self-employment income and a complicated 3.8% surtax on net investment income. It describes the moves to make by year-end to achieve maximum overall tax savings for 2013 and later tax years and explains how to set basic planning goals and adjust income and expenses accordingly. Opportunities and challenges.  Taxpayers and their advisers engaged in year-end tax planning for 2013 once again are challenged by a complex legislative environment. While the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (2012 TRA, P.L. 112-240), enacted in the first days of 2013, brought a measure of certainty to the tax landscape, it came at the cost of higher top income tax rates for ordinary income, capital gains and dividends, along with limits on the availability of the personal exemption and itemized deductions. The 2012 TRA preserved many of the favorable tax breaks that were scheduled to expire with the sunset of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation......

Aca1 Task 2 Individual Federal Tax Return

...ACA1 Task 2 Write an essay in which you recommend the most advantageous tax filing status for Spouse A and Spouse B on their federal tax return. The filing statuses available to the taxpayer couple are married filing jointly, and married filing separately. The best filing status for Spouse A and B is married; filing jointly. Both spouse A and B have separate income for the year and so could file separate returns but they would also have to file at a higher tax rate schedule because their income is not combined. They would be required to claim any exemptions, deductions, and credits available separately. The couple is also precluded from filing a dependent twice so if A were to file for one of their 3 dependents then B could not claim the same dependent. The couple will qualify for 5 exemptions if filing together: 1 for spouse A, 1 for spouse B, 2 for the minor children, and 1 for the student adult child. Spouse B’s mother (whom lives with the couple) receives social security benefits in the amount of $750 per month she contributes all but $90 a month to the household. Since this amounts to $7920 and the couple contributed $7000 to the mother, they provided less than half of her support and so cannot claim her as an exemption. (Hoffman, et al, 2011). When addressing taxable and non-taxable income, it is mandatory that all income be reported on the return but only the portions subject to tax will be tax assessed. Spouse A has a K-1 from the partnership which shows $142,000......

Tax on Budget 2013

...fairness of tax treatment for the basic taxpayers who would benefit £170 while the higher rate tax payers by £42.50, giving an estimate of 23.6 million taxpayers gaining from the reductions which would be discussed below. 2.0 Three Key Issues Addressed The Pre-Budget Review of 2012 presented by Chancellor of the Exchequer to the Parliament has proposed some changes in three key issues: Personal Allowance Increase The largest giveaway is the substantial increase in the personal income tax allowance for those aged under 65.The allowance, which was increased from £8105 to £9,205 for the 2013-2014 period bringing the government closer to their long-term commitment of increasing personal allowances to £10,000 (HMRC 2013). However the reduction to the higher rate threshold is the point at which the higher marginal income tax rate starts to be paid which acts to limit the gain to higher rate tax payers, the change would cosy £4 billion in 2013-14. Considering the increase in April 2011 and April 2012, this means that about 1.5 million fewer individuals will pay income tax in 2013-14 rather than the government using the uprating defaults that it inherited (). The increase in personal allowances will reduce income tax for low and middle-income earners, the government hope this will act as an incentive for people to enter employment thus increasing household disposable incomes. The Increase is estimated to remove 840,000 individuals out of income tax entirely (HMRC 2013).......

The Fair Tax Act of 2013

...The Fair Tax Act of 2013 is an alternative tax plan introduced Senator Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga) to the Senate Finance Committee on January 23, 2013. Subsequently Senate bill S. 122 and House bill H.R.25 were written. The Congressional findings of the 113th Congress in regards to the Federal income tax, which prompted the introduction of this alternative tax plan, found that the present systems of federal taxation retards economic growth thus reducing the living standards of the United States citizens, impedes the International Competitiveness of Industry in the United States, lowers productivity, as well as a host of other negative findings attributed to our current Federal taxation scheme. Those that supported the introduction of this legislation have the belief that a consumption tax, which is the hallmark of the Fair Tax plan, would have a positive effect on savings and investment thus easing tax compliance resulting in an increase in economic growth and international competitiveness of American industries. Glen R. Hubbard wrote: “A shift from the current tax system to a broad-based consumption tax is best thought of as a two-step process”. His findings first conclude that most elements of consumption tax reform are consistent with moving to a pure income tax with uniform capital taxation. Once there, to get to a consumption tax the key element of reform would be the replacement of depreciation allowances for physical investment with expensing of capital assets. Both of......
