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 multiplied by .20 which equals 600. Using the Credit Limit worksheet, the credit is lowered to $265 instead of the $600 since it is the lower amount of the two. Assignment 3
The Petersan’s are eligible for the Child Tax Credit. Using part one of the Worksheet for the Child Tax Credit, the Petersan’s are just under the $110,000 that is the maximum for individuals who are filing married filing…...

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......
