12. What are three characteristics of a sole proprietorship? Are these characteristics the same as or different from those of a partnership?

Three characteristics of a sole proprietorship are 1.) the person cannot be an employee of the business, 2.) that person is solely liable for all debts of the business, and 3.) the results of operations are reported on a Schedule C which is included in the owners personal tax return. Majority of these characteristics are different than those of a partnership; however, they both share common characteristics which are the owner is responsible for the company’s debt and partners/owners cannot be employees. In a partnership, there can be more than one owner general partner and each is liable for partnership debts. Limited partners are only liable for their investment in the partnership partners if the partnerships elect to be treated as limited liability companies to enjoy limited liability.

19. Taxable Income
The Warner Corporation has gross income of $560,000. It has business expenses of $325,000, a capital loss of $20,000 and $2,500 of interest income on temporary investments. What is the corporation’s taxable income?

Solution: Taxable income = $237,500 $560,000 Gross income plus 2,500 Interest income minus 325,000 Expenses equals $237,500 Taxable income The $20,000 capital loss is not deductible

30. Hunter Corporation has $250,000 in gross income, $125,000 in deductible business expenses, and a $12,000 business tax credit. Determine the corporation’s net tax liability.

Solution: The net tax liability is $20,000. $250,000 gross income - $125,000 expenses = $125,000 taxable income.

The income tax liability is:
$50,000 x 15% = $7,500
$25,000 x 25% = 6,250
$25,000 x 34% = 8,500
$25,000 x 39%…...

Ku Klux Klan

...The Ku Klux Klan, which is often referred to and abbreviated as “KKK,” originated in the South during the 1860’s. It later died out in 1870, and was re-established in in the early 1900’s. “A new version of the Ku Klux Klan arose during the early 1920s. Throughout this time period, immigration, fear of radicalism, and a revolution in morals and manners fanned anxiety in large parts of the country. Roman Catholics, Jews, African Americans, and foreigners were only the most obvious targets of the Klan's fear mongering. Bootleggers and divorcees were also targets (Digital History).” At first the main objective of white supremacy organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, the White Brotherhood, the Men of Justice, the Constitutional Union Guards and the Knights of the White Camelia was to stop black people from voting. After white governments had been established in the South the Ku Klux Klan continued to undermine the power of blacks. Successful black businessmen were attacked and any attempt to form black protection groups such as trade unions was quickly dealt with. In 1920, two Atlanta publicists, Edward Clarke, a former Atlanta journalist, and Bessie Tyler, a former madam, took over an organization that had formed to promote World War I fund drives. At that time, the organization had 3,000 members. In three years they built it into the Southern Publicity Association, a national organization with three million members. With the growth of the organization, they were able to......

The Rise of the Ku Klux Klan

...The Rise of the Ku Klux Klan Jeannine Evans HIST101 American History to 1877 Instructor: Kathleen Davis June 15, 2013 When the civil war ended, the Republican Party developed the Reconstruction program, which threatened to turn the south upside down. The Reconstruction was developed with the intention of giving blacks the chance for a new and better life. Upon being freed some blacks stayed with their old masters, yet many left in search of opportunities in education and land ownership. There were many things that stood in their way of these tasks. There were the “black codes” which required black to carry identification and even have a curfew. Labor contracts even bounded the “freed” slaves to their respective plantations. There was even the Jim Crow Laws which directly undermined the status of black by placing them under unfair restrictions. In 1866, six veterans of the confederate army formed a secret society named the Ku Klux Klan, from the Greek word Kuklos, meaning circle. When the Ku Klux Klan was in its infancy, they were organized like a social group. They would help citizens, one of whom was reported in the Franklin View, a Nashville paper as follows: “The Franklin Review of yesterday related that the Ku Klux a few nights since visited the home of a poor widow whose two sons had fallen in the Confederate service, leaving on her doorstep a package containing one hundred dollars and a quantity of domestics, calicoes and other dry goods. A widow lady of......

Acs Final

...JMB ACS Final Mr.Weidman 13 January 2012 Most people only read through a story to find the blunt meaning behind the author’s words. Many people find themselves reading through story once to collect basic information. It takes anyone to read a story about a fish or a story about a man killing a giant, but before you read only the thick print you have to look at the thin. To find the true meaning of a story one must read between the lines and think deep into what the author could be trying to reveal through his or her words. Both “The Trout” and “I Samuel 16-17” are two stories that have a message waiting to be revealed by the reader. While “The Trout” and “I Samuel 16-17” show the many life lessons both stories show the similarities and differences within the three elements such as language, symbol and theme. In all stories the use of language is often used to keep the reader open minded and interested. Language consists of three main elements such as tone, irony and imagery. In both stories, “The Trout” and “I Samuel 16-17” all three of these elements are used to show or help describe each individual part of the story. But although these stories take place in different times the reader can see that the tone, imagery and irony described by the author are the same, yet also very different. In “The Trout”, O’Faolain describes the dark walk as a wild, lofty midnight tunnel of smooth sinewy branches that are never dry enough to crackle (O’Faolain 92). In “I Samuel 16-17”,...

Hate Crimes- the Ku Klux Klan

...Hate Crimes of the Ku Klux Klan Jade Schmidt Com/156 February 9, 2014 Stanley Weiss Hate Crimes of the Ku Klux Klan This is a history of hate in America- not the natural discord that characterizes a democracy, but the wild, irrational, killing hate that led men and women throughout our history. Extreme violence against others simply because of their race, nationality, religion or lifestyle (The Southern Poverty, 2011). The Ku Klux Klan is a white supremacist group, founded in 1866 created after the south lost the Civil War. The Ku Klux Klan was started by Confederate soldiers who did not believe that the newly freed blacks should have the same rights as whites. As a first membership rule of the Ku Klux Klan was, the potential member of the Ku Klux Klan could only be a native born, white protestant U.S. male. The Ku Klux Klan is classified as a hate group, causing murders, arson, rapes, and shootings against blacks and any other minority that they do not view as racially pure. The Ku Klux Klan was once one of the most feared groups in the South and is still a very well-known group across the world. Founding and Early History of the Ku Klux Klan In December 1865 a group of men came together to organize a social club. All were veterans of the war and had attended college where most were members of a frat group while attending college. There were several groups, such as Men of Justice, the Pale Faces, the White Brotherhood, and the Order of the White Rose, that came......

...Physics 114 AC Circuits. Oscilloscope Alvaro Alvarez Partner: Shaine Powers Group 1 Ta: Salman 4/1/14 Abstract: In the experiment AC Circuits. Oscilloscope, the main objective was to use a signal generator (SG) to create a sine wae and using an oscilloscope we had to bserve the various components of a sine waves and there relationships; the component RMS, amplitude, period and frequency. Another objective was to use the RLC circuit to determine the resonant frequency. In order to complete these ojectives the circuit was first set up as in figure 1 and RMS, period, frequency and amplitude were calculated and measured. The experimental amplitude was 0.875Vac, the frequency was 1001Hz, and the period was one second. The difference beween the theoretical frequcy from the signal generator was compared to the experimental frequency giving a 0.1% error. For the second part of the lab the RLC circuit was set up (figure 2) and from there the resonant frequency was found for this was done three times (table 1). After this the voltage drop was measured in the range of 800-300Hz; the different frequencies withc corresponding average power that dissipated in the resistor was inputted into GA (table 2,). From there the power vs frequency graph was plotted. and finally the theoretical angular frequency 1.0846 x 104rad/sec was compared to the experimentally found frequency of 1.0820 x 104rad/sec, giving a 0.24% error. Objective: In experiment number nine “AC Circuits.......

Ku Klux Klan and the Franciscan Values

...Head: KU KLUX KLAN Ku Klux Klan and the Franciscan Values Cardinal Stritch University ASB-219 Bradley Houston February 21, 2012 How does one determine if the organization known as the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) either defies or embodies the Franciscan values Cardinal Stritch has in place for its students? In order to answer this question we must break down the KKK’s history and compare it to the values of the Franciscan tradition. The Ku Klux Klan is a movement that has been very controversial since the Civil War. The Klan as they call themselves was created as a result of the occupation of Federal troops in the South. The KKK’s purpose at the time was to provide the people of the south with the leadership to bring back the values of Western Civilization that was taken from them. In the 1920’s the Klan had its most popular era. At this time the KKK was the most active politically then it has ever been in history. The people who believed in movement came together against the advancement of African Americans, Jews, and other minorities. The KKK members were very violent and used harsh actions to get their point across, but their actions were supported by their strong belief in their religion and the culture in which they were brought up in. The Klan did as it believed, they did what they thought was right and for their time period and acted in the way their culture brought them up to act. The name Ku Klux......

Ku Klux Klan

...KKK “Ku Klux Klan” [pic] Ex-Confederate soldiers established the Ku Klux Klan in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866. The Klan extended into almost every southern state by 1870. They developed the first two words of their name from the Greek word kyklos, meaning circle and took the third as a variant of the word clan. The Klan soon turned to intimidating newly freed African Americans. Riding at night the Klan terrorized and sometimes murdered those it opposed. Members adopted a hooded white costume and the white costume intended to represent the ghosts of the Confederate. The costume was used to avoid identification and to frighten victims during nighttime raids. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders. Though Congress passed legislation designed to curb Klan terrorism, the organization saw its primary goal. It was the reestablishment of white supremacy through Democratic victories in state legislatures across the South in the 1870s. After a period of decline, white Protestant nativist groups revived the Klan in the early 20th century. Burning crosses, staging rallies, parades and marches expressing their hatred for immigrants, Catholics, Jews, blacks and organized labor. The civil rights movement of the 1960s also saw a surge of Ku Klux Klan activity, including bombings of black schools and churches and violence against black and white activists in the South. Shortly after the KKK's formation a man...

Mr. Ku, a Single Veteran

...Mr. Ku is an 81-year-old veteran who lives alone. Like many of his fellows, he was single for many years until he got a wife from Mainland China 10 years ago, but she flew back there three years ago and didn’t come back since then. His income majorly depends on government monthly stipend but that’s not enough so he also makes some money by doing some recycling business. However this winter was particularly harsh for him because he had an intractable cough. Sometimes the night cough even caused him to cough out blood. Initially he thought it was just like his chronic cough because he had been smoking for many years, so he just drank cough syrup and some herbal medicine given by old friends. But he started to become febrile for two days, and dyspnea developed the following night that made he collapse out side of his apartment. His neighbors found that and called 911 for an ambulance. He was sent to an ER where they found he with severe lobar pneumonia, and the condition worsened very fast with CO2 retention that the doctors considered intubating him. Even though already semi-comatose, Mr. Ku resisted for a while cause he didn’t want to breathe or rely on a machine. The medical staff couldn’t find any next-of-kin to sign DNAR, and the patient himself couldn’t sign either cause he didn’t know how to write his name. Eventually they decided to use a non-invasive positive pressure mask first and admitted him in an ICU. Luckily after five days of treatment with that mask and......

Ac Milan

...AC MILAN Fall 2014 Part 1: The Company Back on December 16, 1899 Milan Foot-Ball and Cricket Club was officially formed, but the first time Milan's name appeared publicly was on Monday, December 18 in an article by the Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper. Founded by English lace-maker expatriate Herbert Kilpin and businessman Alfred Edwards, the AC Milan become quickly one the most prestigious football teams in Italy and Europe. Thus, the fact it was founded by English men made the club named Milan, the city name pronounced in English, instead of pronouncing it Milano, as for the all-time rival FC Internazionale Milano. The Associazione Calcio Milan has spent almost its entire history in the top flight of the Italian Football Championship, the Serie A. To date, AC Milan is the second most titled club in the world with 7 champions’ league titles, among other international trophies, right behind the Real Madrid and its 10 champions’ league titles (taking into consideration that Real Madrid won half of its champions’ league titles in the 60’s.) However, under the last 28 years of Italian Billionaire and Italy’s former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s chiarmanship, the Associazione Calcio Milan have won more titles than any other team worldwide. Thus, Silvio Berlusconi is considered as the most successful football club president of all times, even if there is a debate about it since Real Madrid fans consider Santiago Bernabeu as the owner of this title because of his......

Pepcid Ac

...Q. How should Pepcid be positioned- treatment or prevention- and what are the implications? Pepcid Ac would work best when positoned as a treatment drug.We can look at it from different levels: Market demand/ Market research- - 2 tests with BASES methodology indicate that treatment has greater appeal over prevention with respect to the target groups- dual users as well as traditional antacid users. (Table D). While the focus groups and concept tests favored prevention and treatment (both together). However, JJ’s extensive experience with this BASES technique makes the findings more reliable. JJIM”s core competency- Merck’s strength is is R&D’s expertise. The treatment positioning focuses on the product’s benefits.It outperforms the existing antacids in the OTC market.However the medication’ s ability to prevent is questionable. The treatment strategy will also rely on JJ’s core competency is its consumer marketing and sales. In the recent past (1990 t0 1993) JJ successfullyswitched from prescription to OTC medications , twice. For instance,JJ drove Immonium sales from 31.5 million in 1987 $ to 125 million in 5 years. (table b) FDA as a collaborator- FDA’s rjected JJM’s to sell Pepcic AC on the grounds that the clinical trails failed to show its perforamnce as prevention medication.If JJM drops this claim it has a higher chance to be approved to be the first – to – market.
