Tax consequences

Tax consequences

Overview:

In addition to the tax consequences of the form in which an entity chooses to do business, the tax consequences of how the entity chooses to manage business operations on a day-to-basis and record them for accounting purposes can also have significant implications for the success of a business.

Organizers must make key decisions on how they will operate the entity when the business is formed. Key decisions include the inventory cost-flow assumption, the accounting method to be used, the fiscal year end, and the method for calculating and claiming depreciation of assets. Businesses must also consider how they will structure multijurisdictional operations, and the choice of where to do business can result in tax savings or a substantial increase in tax cost. In Milestone Two, which is due in Module Six, you will make recommendations to the clients in the final project scenario regarding these key operational decisions.

Prompt:

Read the Milestone Two scenario excerpt below—you can also access the full final project scenario—and then create a professional memorandum that provides recommendations for key operating decisions.

For each recommendation, be sure to give a detailed explanation of the associated tax consequences.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

Create a memorandum to stakeholders with an executive summary using logical reasoning based on your tax research to explain why the client should adopt your recommendations for structuring business operations.

 Make a recommendation for the appropriate inventory cost flow assumption for a merchandising business.

Make a recommendation for the appropriate overall business accounting method (cash, accrual, hybrid).

 Make a recommendation for the appropriate depreciation method and asset lives, including consideration of Section 179.

 Make a recommendation for the appropriate fiscal year end for your recommended business entity.

 Explain the tax implications related to multijurisdictional operations of a business, including interstate and international considerations.

Scenario.

The second meeting is about two weeks after the first meeting. The Tai-Ga owners have completed all the legal steps necessary to set up the new business using the entity form that you recommended during the first meeting. In the second meeting, you will explain the tax elections and other accounting matters that must be considered prior to commencing operations. You will discuss the options available to the Organizers and make specific recommendations.

Controversy Associated With Dissociative Disorders

Controversy Associated With Dissociative Disorders

The DSM-5 is a diagnostic tool. It has evolved over the decades, as have the classifications and criteria within its pages. It is used not just for diagnosis, however, but also for billing, access to services, and legal cases. Not all practitioners are in agreement with the content and structure of the DSM-5, and dissociative disorders are one such area. These disorders can be difficult to distinguish and diagnose. There is also controversy in the field over the legitimacy of certain dissociative disorders, such as dissociative identity disorder, which was formerly called multiple personality disorder.

In this Assignment, you will examine the controversy surrounding dissociative disorders. You will also explore clinical, ethical, and legal considerations pertinent to working with patients with these disorders.

  To Prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources on dissociative disorders.
  • Use the Walden Library to investigate the controversy regarding dissociative disorders. Locate at least three scholarly articles that you can use to support your Assignment.

Thesis 

Thesis

This is just a reminder that you will need to turn in a single page on stating which topic you are choosing and outlining what you plan to say about it.

So, two items:

[1] State the thesis for which you will be arguing and sum up what you want to say about it in a couple sentences. So, thesis sentence + 2-3 sentences of explanation = your abstract.

[2] Provide an outline of how you plan to organize your essay. Bullet points and phrases are fine. The outline does not have to be formal or in complete sentences.

The outline should make reference to your thesis, which authors and texts you plan to use, how they will fit into your argument, and the relevance of your thesis to our lives and experiences.

 

The Final Essay . Please upload the paper to Canvas. Write around 5-6 pages on the topic of your choice.

The focus of this essay will be to state, explain, develop and defend a particular thesis based upon some theme in philosophy related to the texts we’ve been reading. The thesis needs to make some specific claim (or closely interrelated set of claims) about some topic or theme that we’ve touched on this term (see list of possible topics below).

This claim needs to be stated clearly, explained carefully, fully developed, and explicitly related to the kinds of arguments we’ve encountered in texts by at least two different authors, drawing upon and quoting their texts. One of those texts must be either Rene Descartes or Josef Pieper and the other must be an earlier author: Plato, Aristotle, or Boethius. (If you use more than two texts, the additional texts can be any of the ones we read.)

You will need to support and defend your thesis with philosophical arguments and reasons drawing upon texts we’ve read, ideas of your own, and your own experiences and beliefs. Be sure to relate the theme of your essay to our lives. Why does this claim matter? What difference does it make if you’re right about thesis?

Topics might include:
  • the value of the liberal arts & their relation to the contemplative life
  • the nature of genuine human happiness and well-being
  • how human beings are distinctive, unique and the implications of this for a good life
  • what it means to die well and the meaning of death (and what, if anything, lies beyond)
  • the existence of God or human openness to transcendence & its value in life
  • finding meaning and value in life, even in suffering
  • the nature of intellectual virtue & importance of moral imagination
  • inordinate desire & incontinence and how we master or overcome them
  • the intellectual & moral effects of wrongdoing upon human well-being
  • virtues and vices of character, either in general or more specifically
  • the freedom of true knowledge, the place of certainty and doubt, & education
  • the value and meaning and kinds of friendship
  • intrinsic goods, leisure & work/career

You will need to turn in an abstract & outline on. Your abstract should articulate a specific, focused thesis with regard to one of these topics, followed by several sentences of explanation, summarizing where you intend to go with the thesis.

Note

Your paper outline should set out how you plan to structure your paper, making reference to your thesis, which authors and texts you expect to incorporate, how you will use them, how they will fit into your overall argument, and what connections you will draw with our lives and experiences.
