ACCT 2690 – Capstone Accounting – Personal and Business Taxation

Complete the following project using the knowledge you attained in ACCT 1610 Personal Income Tax
and ACCT 2610 Business Income Tax. You are going to manually prepare the federal tax return for
Samson and Delilah Athena. You will be expected to complete the entire return with the necessary
current tax forms located in the Taxation file in Canvas. Although Samson does not believe his tax
return will be unduly complicate, he does realize his limitations and came to you for your assistance. The
accountant who helped him last year retired. You are to prepare his income tax return for the 2019 tax
year in good form. Be sure they are assembled in the correct numeric order, the same as you would
submit them to the IRS.

Samson, a world renowned strong man and athlete, is employed as an owner and a trainer for his
business “FeelFit Health Club”. To some people, he is just another long-haired strong man living a life of
earlier eras. Delilah, his vivacious wife, is also not your stereo-typical “blonde”. She also happens to be
employed as a barber and hairstyling consultant at “Abraham’s Hairstyling Salon”.

Samson and Delilah Athena live with their family at 3234 Elaine Way, Hastings, NE 68901. Samson’s
social security number is 776-47-1314, while Delilah’s is 749-11-1924. Their land line telephone number
is 402-462-4976. Both are in their mid- forties and enjoy good health. Both have excellent eyesight,
although Samson has occasionally complained of blackouts when Delilah cuts his hair.

Samson, born July 1, 45 years ago, and Delilah, born April 15, 43 years ago, have been married 25 years
and have always lived in Nebraska. In the past, they always filed their tax returns as married filing
jointly. They plan to continue to file the same this year. Also, to aid in the preparation of the return, the
couple has provided a copy of last year’s 2018 tax return.

Samson and Delilah have four children: Cain, born January 1, age nineteen, social security number 222-
28-1105 Abel, born February 10, age seventeen, social security number 611-31-1305; and Seth, born July
4, age eight, social security number 650-82-6805. The couple also welcomed into their home a baby boy
on June 8. Joseph’s social security number is 729-14-3205.

Cain graduated from Hastings High School in May this year and started his freshman year at the
University of Nebraska at Kearney, 2504 9th Ave, Kearney, NE 68849 in August. He earned $3,100 on a
summer job, which he deposited in a savings account and did not use it for his support. Samson sent
Cain $400 per month (August through December) so that Cain would not have to use his personal
savings for living expenses. Samson and Delilah also helped pay for his tuition, fees, books, board and
room, and purchased some of his clothes. Cain’s tuition and fees totaled $32,530, books were $3,300
and board and room was $26,000 for the fall semester and received a Form 1098-T from the University.
Cain received a $13,000 scholarship. The school’s Federal ID is 37-3001497.

Abel is proving to be a very serious student with high academic standards already set in High School.
Little Seth just started 2nd grade this fall and has already decided that he is going to follow in his father’s
footsteps as a strong man and take over his dad’s business when he retires.

Since Samson solely owns and works full-time at the FeelFit Health Club at 1372 Noah Ave., Hastings.
He submitted the business records for the club for you to use this year. He began this business on
February 10, four years ago. The EIN number for the business is 47-2309660 and the business code for



his health club is 812990. Since he provides only a service, he uses the cash basis method of keeping his
books. He believes he has given you everything you need to complete the business portion on the
return. He felt there was nothing required a filing of Form 1099-Misc.

He has always had the accountant use the MACRS method for figuring the depreciation and wishes the
same thing for this year. He has also never taken advantage of the bonus year depreciation nor the
Section 179 expensing of any of his previous purchases and does not wish to this year either. All
purchases made by Samson were new purchases with no trade-ins.

There are no vehicles dedicated to the business because Samson does not do that much transportation
or travel-related business. However, he did some traveling this year to promote the health club and
entertain customers. He drove is personal car and kept records of his business-related miles only. The
business mileage totaled 6,500 miles this year. He did not keep records of the gas used or repairs made
because his total miles driven with the vehicle this year was 23,200 miles (which includes the 6,500
business miles). These miles were all personal or commuting miles except the miles for business
identified earlier. Five of the business trips required him to stay two to three days at a specific location.
He incurred $1,800 in lodging and $1,050 in meals. He did not incur any parking fees nor toll fees on his
travels. Samson drives a 2019 Ford Edge that was purchased new on January 2, 2019. No other vehicle
was traded in at the time of the purchase. However, being so busy with keeping his muscles well-tuned,
he did not have time to keep track of the motor vehicles costs.
