In February 2011, the case is settled, and Joe refunds $2,500 to the customer. When Joe prepares his 2010 tax return in April 2011, he will include only $1,500 of net revenues from that customer. Your Answer: False The claim of right doctrine requires the recipient of disputed funds to recognize the income. Joe will include the full $4,000 in his 2010 taxable income because he had full control over the funds. He will be allowed to take a deduction on his 2011 tax return for the $2,500 repaid the customer.
After thinking about the information you submitted to me about your taxes, there were several issues which I observed. Firstly, I would like to talk about John Smith's issues: 1(a) I think the $300,000 received by John Smith as fees from jury award is taxable for federal tax income purposes. Because as the IRC Sec 104(a)(2) law: any winnings in a personal injury lawsuit that cover the treatment of physical injuries are not taxable except for attorney fees which are taxable. Taxability also depends upon the place of residence of the taxpayer. (1) In Codman Vs. Commissioner, held that attorney fees paid to the attorney not to be included in the gross income of the claimant in favour of whom the personal injury lawsuit is settled.
c. What is your determination regarding reducing the taxable amount of income for both (a) and (b) above? The issue is determining how to reduce the taxable income for both the $300,000 and the $25,000 reimbursed expenses that are included in gross income for the current year. Since John did not know if he were going to win the case that he worked on for two years and therefore receive the income, he was unable to use the accrual method and had to use the cash method. In order to reduce his income for the current year, he can file an amendment to his previous tax year to change to use the accrual method. With this method, he can split his income and expenses between two years, effectively reducing his taxable liability for the current year.

When the state rate is 5 percent, Dana would achieve the following returns from the Treasury bond or the corporate bond: The Treasury bond yields $1,125 or $30,000 x [.05 x (1-.25)] after tax. The corporate bond yields $1,282.50 or $30,000 x [.06 x (1 - .25 - .05(1-.25))] after tax.
