2.6 In its most recent financial statements, Newhouse Inc. reported $50 million of net income and $810 million of retained earnings. The previous retained earnings were $780 million. How much in dividends was paid to shareholders during the year?
New Balance retained earning = Previous Balance retained earning + net income – Dividend paid
Dividend paid = Previous Balance retained earning + net income - New Balance retained earning
Dividend = $780 million + $50 million - $810 million
= $830 million - $810 million
= $20 million

2.7 The Talley Corporation had a taxable income of $365,000 from operations after all operating costs but before (1) interest charges of $50,000, (2) dividends received of $15,000, (3) dividends paid of $25,000, and (4) income taxes.
a) What are the firm’s income tax liability and its after-tax income?
b) What are the company’s marginal and average tax rates on taxable income?

For a corporation, 70% of dividends received are excluded from taxes; so taxable dividends are calculated with the remained 30% (page 72 of the book).

Company’s Tax Liability:
Taxable operating income $ 365,000
Taxable interest ($ 50,000)
Taxable dividend received$ 4,500
15000*(1 – 0.70)
Total taxable income$ 319,500

The marginal rate for this company is 39% (this information is in the corporate tax rate table in page 71)
The non-taxable dividends are: $15,000 * 0.7 = $ 10,500
The tax is:
Tax Liability =$ 22,250 + (319,500 – 100,000)*0.39 = $ 107,855
After Tax-income:
Taxable income $ 319,500
Taxable ($ 107855)
Non-taxable dividend
Received 15000*(0.70) $ 10,500
Net income $ 222,145

Average tax rate = Taxable interest income / Taxable operating income
= 107855 / 319500 = 0.337574 *100%
= 33.7574 = 33.76 %
Average tax rate…...

Her adjusted gross income is $70,000, and she has itemized deductions of $9,000 Adjusted Gross Income = 70,000 Greater of Itemized Deductions or Standard Rate = - 9,000 (standard 5,950) Personal Exemptions= - 11,400 (two dependents and self) Taxable Income = =49,600 3-36. Compute Stanley's taxable income for 2012, assuming he has $1,000 in wages from working in a grocery store and $2,000 in interest income from some bonds he owns. Stanley, age 16, is claimed as a dependent on his parents' return. Stanley is a dependent on his parent’s return so there will be no personal exemption as one is claimed on his parent’s return (exemption of 3,800). Gross income includes all items of income from whatever source unless specifically excluded. Therefore, Stanley’s taxable income is 3,000. Gross income = 2,000+1,000=3,000 Less deductions = 0 Adjusted gross income 3,000 Itemized or standard deduction = 0 Personal exemption = 0 Taxable income...

...Assignment One, week One COM/156 July 24, 2011 Lisa Acerbo Assignment One, week One When writing a research paper, there can be some challenges to overcome. My first thought is what challenge do I have and need to overcome in order to write a great paper. The first challenge is keeping the readers interest and attention. It is very important to keep your readers interested in your writings and it can be hard trying to read something that you are unable to keep your attention on. Keeping the information of my writings to the research and subject will help this challenge. Another challenge can be determining an appropriate style and tone for my paper. Being consistent with my ideas in my style and tone, will keep the paper flowing with information and the reader will be able to understand the point I am trying to make. The third challenge is being persuasive enough in my writings and research papers. Also, being able to put my thinking and research into words and get my point across, but also integrate enough material from my sources to keep the paper persuasive and catch the reader’s attention will provide the needed steps to a great research paper. When writing my research papers, the strategies I want to utilize for my challenges are: finding an interesting subject to do my research on, and utilize as much information I can to write an interesting paper. By using as many resources I can, will insure that I have plenty of information to include in...

...Running head: LEADERSHIP APPROACH Leadership Approach University of Phoenix Leadership Approach Countless managers work tirelessly each day to help create thriving and dynamic organizations. Some of these managers possess unparalleled leadership qualities while others lack the knowledge and appropriate people skills to motivate and empower employees. Managers and Leaders have varying definitions. A manager can be effective without leadership qualities and a leader can be effective without management skills. However, in chapter one of Organizational Leadership, Yukl (2010) states, “defining managing and leading as distinct roles, processes, or relationships may obscure more than it reveals if it encourages simplistic theories about effective leadership (p. 8). The following paper provides an overview to the leadership approach of behavior as well as provides a description of the strengths and weaknesses of this approach. Behavior Approach The Behavior Approach began in the early 1950s after researchers declared the Trait Approach as being an ineffective means for identifying positive leadership qualities (Yukl, 2010). Researchers believed the key to successful leadership included the positive behaviors management displayed while on the job. Additionally, management stated behavior research falls into two general subcategories: (1) how managers spend their time and the typical patterns of activities, responsibilities and the functions for managerial jobs and...

The involvement of group managers in sharing the responsibilities during various stages of a project is important. Group managers duties are planning, executing, and finalizing projects.

It appears that there was no segregation of duties Ebbers had all the power; there was no one to challenge his decisions. He had Sullivan the company’s CFO and four of Sullivan’s staff members under his thumb. There should have been a board of directors to monitor the actions of Ebbers. The company had developed a culture where executive decisions were not challenged nor questioned. There was no adequate balance of power between the board and management. 4. The CFO, Sullivan received retention bonuses of ten million and by 2001 they had each been allocated millions of stock options. 5. Because in the case of WorldCom there was no code of ethics at the time of the scandal and as noted in a report to the US Bankruptcy court, one person Ebber seem to have dominated everything, including the decisions of the board. 6.

Auditing and Assurances Eighth Edition Week One Homework

...Auditing and Assurances Eighth Edition Week One Homework 1-26: a. Auditing evidence could be defined as the more relevant and accompanying data and information which helps the auditor in their evaluation of financial documents. b. The management of an accounting firm will ultimately make the assertions about the many parts of the financial statements that they are handling or are in question. Such assertions are a tool to assist them in making sure that they have not overlooked any components that might be detrimental to the overall integrity of their reports. For example, if a given financial institution lists accounts that might be receivable for a specific amount, the management is “asserting” that such receivables are truly in the institution’s possession and are appropriately valued or appraised and are not just “approximations.” c. When searching for and evaluating evidence auditors must be concerned about the reliability and relevance of the evidence that they are utilizing in their reports. Otherwise, invalid derivations and conclusions will be reached in regards to the management’s assertions. Furthermore, the reliability of the evidence that they use will attest as to the ability of such evidence to show the real state of their assertions. 1-27: a. There are many phases to an audit that is to be evaluated and executed properly. First of all, auditors must determine if they are going to accept a new client or continue with a client that is already using...

...Week One - Homework Practice Exercises 1 1. The night shift was not necessarily safer. It might just be that there are fewer workers on the night shift. You would need to know the number of workers and the hours they are working to figure out the rate at which accidents happen. This is a problem of a missing denominator. 2. (a) There are many more Camrys on the road than Escalades (b) Because the theft rate is higher, the Escalade is more likely to get stolen. 3. They should look at the complaint rate per hundred prescriptions -- not the total number of complaints. The reason most of the complaints are for CVS pharmacy could easily be because most of the prescriptions are written from CVS pharmacies. It could turn out that CVS pharmacies are doing better than other pharmacies. Practice Exercises 2 4. (a) observational (b) Prisoners who volunteer to take these courses are more likely to be interested in being rehabilitated than the ones who don’t volunteer. The confounding factor created here is the level of prisoner motivation to be rehabilitated: it influences whether or not they take the courses and also whether or not they commit crimes to return to prison. The education program may work well, but you can’t tell from this study because of this confounding factor.

Ethics and Aristotle Week One Homework

... needed to better them and be able to care for their child again. The judge has taken into consideration the care for the child. Not only are the parents now suitable to care for their child but taking into consideration the child’s future this does seem to be the best decision for her. In this case both theories are similar, in that the rules based theory is based on the care based theory. The rules are based on the care for the child in question, although the child does not want to be moved against her will this decision is made based on the care for the child in the long run. Without knowing her family she would not be exposed to her culture or even something as important as her family medical history. I personally believe that both schools are completely relevant and worthy of use in “real life” situations. Ethics should be based on rules, right or wrong. Without knowing what is right and what is wrong how would one have ethics? They would simply make decisions with no second thoughts as to who will or would not be hurt or affected. Once right and wrong are taught then personal ethics take into play. Ethics should also be based on caring; one should care about another’s feelings. This also take into the rules, you make decisions on what is right or wrong for each person. Care based theories I feel are a different way of looking at right or wrong. A great example would be stealing from someone. You can do this with no care whether it is right or wrong but consider the......
