During the past couple of years ROCK has taken advantage of bonus depreciation and 179 deductions and fully remodeled the premises and upgraded its leasehold improvements. This year ROCK wrapped up its remodel with the purchase of $20000 of office furniture for which it will claim a 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 2015 ROCK purchased 1000 shares of Tech Inc. stock for $100000; it sold those shares on December 15 2015 for $80000. On March 15 2014 ROCK purchased 2000 shares of BioLabs Inc. stock for $136000; it sold those shares for $160000 on December 15 2015. These transactions were reported to the IRS on Forms 1099B; ROCK’s basis in these shares was reported.
Net income per books is $840000. The firm’s activities do not constitute qualified production activities for purposes of the 199 deduction. On January 1 2015 the members’ capital accounts equaled $200000 each. No additional capital contributions were made in 2015. In addition to their guaranteed payments each member withdrew $250000 cash during the year. The LLC’s balance sheet as of December 31 2015 is as follows:
