Comprehensive Problem for Chapters 7 and 8. Sam Johnson started a
small machine shop, Machines, Inc., in his garage and incorporated it
in March of 2013 as a calendar-year corporation. At that time, he
began using his personal computer and tools solely for the business as
part of his contribution to the corporation. The computer cost $2,700
but had a fair market value of only $900 at conversion and the tools,
which had cost $1,500, were valued at $1,100. During 2013,
Machines, Inc. purchased two machines: Machine A, purchased on
May 2, cost $24,000; Machine B, purchased on June 5, cost $40,000.
The corporation expensed Machine A under Section 179. The
computer, tools, and Machine B were depreciated using accelerated
MACRS only. The corporation did not take any depreciation on the
garage nor did Sam charge the business rent because the business
moved to a building the business purchased for $125,000 on January
5, 2014. On January 20, 2014, Machines purchased $4,000 of office
furniture and on July 7, it purchased Machine C for $48,000. It
depreciated these assets under MACRS (including allowable bonus
depreciation), but did not use Section 179 expensing. Machines
acquired no new assets in 2015.
On February 4, 2016, Machines bought a new computer system for
$5,100. It sold the old computer the same day for $300. On March 15,
it sold Machine A for $6,000 and purchased a more versatile machine
for $58,000. On August 15, Machines sold bonds it had purchased
with $9,800 of the cash Sam had originally contributed to the
corporation for $10,400 to pay creditors. The business takes only the
maximum allowable MACRS depreciation deduction on assets
purchased in 2016 with no Section 179 expensing or bonus
depreciation.
Determine Machines, Inc.'s depreciation expense deductions for 2013
through 2016.Determine the realized and recognized gains or losses
on the property transactions in 2016.
