Harry Pickart
P. O. Box 100
Sun River, OR 97600
Dear Harry,
After reviewing the information you provided to me, I advise you that the aircraft parts should be depreciated based on 5-year cost recovery rules. Revenue Procedure 87-56, 1987-2 C.B. 674, which is reproduced as "Table B" in IRS Publication 946, classifies your property as an Asset Class 00.21, and as such, they will be subject to the 5-year MACRS schedule of depreciation.
If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,


Part 2

RE: Harry Pickart (Tax Year 2011)
Facts:
Harry Pickart has qualified property, IRC § 167(a), consisting of used aircraft parts which he rents to movie studios. He estimates that the useful life of the parts is less than four years because of the wear and tear while they are being used by the movie studios. Therefore, he believes the cost recovery period is three years.
Issue:
Determination of the asset class and cost recovery rules for airplane parts to establish the correct MACRS depreciation schedule.
Conclusion:
The aircraft parts should be classed as five-year recovery property, per Table B, IRS Publication 946, 00.21, as defined by Rev. Proc. 87-56, 1987-2 C.B. 674.
Analysis:
From Rev. Proc. 87-56, classifying an asset according to the business activity in which the asset is primarily used, the Tax Court held that the useful life of a particular asset is not controlling in determining the applicable recovery period under 168, as in the case of Mark Thomson, 78 TCM 768, T.C. Memo.…...

...Programming Languages Throughout the decades 1970’s C – It was developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973 at AT&T Bell labs. The development of this language is closely tied to the development of Unix, which was originally implemented by Ritchie and Ken Thompson in assembly language on PDP-7. They decided to port the operating system to a PDP-11. They considered rewriting the operating system using B language. However, B’s inability to take advantage of some of the PDP-11’s features led to the development of C. Pascal – Published in 1970 and designed by Niklaus Wirth, it was intended as a tool to teach structured programming. Smalltalk – Smalltalk was the product of research led by Alan Kay and implemented by Dan Ingalls. Ingalls created the first version in a few mornings when he was bet that a programming language based on message passing inspired by Simula could be implemented in a page of code. Prolog – A general purpose logic programming language designed by Alain Colmerauer and published in 1972.

...1. The Condemnation of Galileo Finocchiaro, Maurice. "A Galilean Approach to the Galileo Affair, 1609-2009." Science & Education 20, no. 1 (January 2011): 51-66. Education Research Complete, EBSCOhost (accessed March 22, 2014). This article describes the life and times of Galileo told from the Galilean approach. Finocchiaro travels through the discoveries of Galileo and how others perceived his explorations. After his creation of the telescope and the discovery of the rough side of the moon, the Copernican Revolution began. This is when the argument of the world spinning on an axis and not standing still came into play. “Galileo answered the observational astronomical objections by showing that the empirical consequences implied by Copernicanism were indeed visible with the telescope, although still invisible with the naked eye” (1). The author suggests that when Galileo started to speak publicly about his findings through letters and the Roman Catholic Church became angry. The author writes that in a matter of months, there were two investigations launched on Galileo which lasted for a year (2) After Galileo’s third run in with the law from the Book he wrote called Dialogue, he was found guilty and sentenced to house arrest for the rest of his life. The author writes that “A key idea for making sense of the subsequent controversy is to focus on the subsequent criticisms of Galileo and to see how he has been, or can be, defended from them” (3). 2. The radical...

The cars and other prizes that Oprah gives away, such as the Pontiac G6 are considered taxable just like any other prize. In this case the tax is marked as fair market value of the prize and is an addition to your income. Depending on your tax bracket, the fan that received the car could end up shelling out $7,000 for that car. §74(a) The furniture that was given away because the Bears shut out the Packers was free furniture in the form of a discount or rebate. Each household was given a $10,000 rebate if the Bears shut out the Packers, as they did. Since the furniture was given as a rebate taxable it is not considered in gross income and is not taxable. §Reg. 1.461-4(g)(3) 3. T.C.

... benefit to be conferred, the price of $25 per share would have had to be less than the FMV of the shares of the corporation. Having a separate class does not affect the determination of a taxable benefit. 4) The fact that the PUC of Sophie-Anne’s shares is less than the amount that she contributes does not constitute a reduction of paid-up capital to which subsection 84(4) applies. c. 4) See subsections 84(1) and 15(1) and paragraph 39(1)(a). Subsection 84(1) applies, and thus there is a deemed dividend of $25,000 ($75,000 - $50,000). There is no taxable benefit under subsection 15(1), since the entire amount of the benefit, namely $25,000, is taxed as a deemed dividend. The capital gain of $55,000 ($75,000 - $20,000) is reduced by the amount already taxed as a dividend, and therefore the taxable capital gain is $15,000 [($55,000 - $25,000) × 50%]. 2013-2014 Page 1 of 5 d. 3) See subsections 69(4) and 15(1) and paragraph 214(3)(a). The corporation disposes of the painting at FMV under subsection 69(4); therefore, there is a taxable capital gain of $4,000 ($23,000 - $15,000 × 50%). The shareholder receives a taxable benefit under subsection 15(1) equal to the difference between the FMV of the property and the amount paid, or $13,000 ($23,000 - $10,000). Since the shareholder is a non-resident, this benefit is deemed to be a dividend under paragraph 214(3)(a) for purposes of Part XIII tax. e. 3) See subsection 85(1). Incorrect answers: 1) The......
