               During the past couple of years, ROCK has taken advantage of bonus depreciation and section 179 deductions and fully remodeled the premises and upgraded its leasehold improvements. This year, ROCK wrapped up its remodel with the purchase of $20,000 of office furniture for which it will claim a section 179 deduction. (For simplicity, assume that ROCK uses the same cost recovery methods for both tax and financial purposes.) There is no depreciation adjustment for alternative minimum tax purposes.

 

               ROCK invests much of its excess cash in non-dividend-paying growth stocks, and tax-exempt securities. During the year, the LLC sold two securities. On June 15, 2013, ROCK purchased 1,000 shares of Tech, Inc. stock for $100,000; it sold those shares on December 15, 2013, for $80,000. On March 15, 2012, ROCK purchased 2,000 shares of BioLabs, Inc. stock for $136,000; it sold those shares for $160,000 on December 15, 2013.

 

               Net income per books is $840,000. The firm’s activities do not constitute “qualified production activities” for purposes of the section 199 deduction. On January 1, 2013, the members’ capital accounts equaled $200,000 each. No additional capital contributions were made in 2013. In addition to their guaranteed payments, each member withdrew $250,000 cash during the year. The LLC’s balance sheet as of December 31, 2013, is as follows:

 

 

 

                                                                                                        Beginning         Ending

 

Cash                                                                                               $  444,000                  ??

               Assume that all debt is shared equally by the members. Each member has personally guaranteed the debt of the LLC.

 

               None of the members, all of whom are U.S. citizens, sold any portion of their interests in ROCK during the year. All of the entity’s financial operations are concentrated in California. The LLC had no foreign bank accounts or operations and no interest in any U.S. or foreign trusts, corporations, or partnerships. The LLC is not publicly traded and is not a statutory tax shelter. The LLC is not subject to consolidated audit procedures. Ryan Ross is the tax matters partner.

 

               The business code for “Agents and Managers for Artists, Athletes, Entertainers, and Other Public Figures” is 711410. ROCK is not a partner in any other partnership. The LLC’s form 1065 was prepared by Ryan Ross and sent to the Ogden, UT IRS Service Center. All members are active in LLC operations.

If you are using tax return preparation software, also prepare Form 4562 and Schedule D.
