In September of 2020, Mr. Humperdinck was clearing dry brush from behind his home just outside of Spokane. He became frustrated with how long it was taking using his clippers and weed-eater. He decided instead to light the brush on fire, believing this would be safe because it was an overcast day. The taxpayer brought out a fire extinguisher in case the fire got out of control. Unfortunately, some wind kicked up and fanned the fire out of control. The fire completely consumed his house. The fire then spread and burned many other houses and acres of trees before it was extinguished. The burned area was so extensive it was declared a federal disaster area.
Mr. Humperdinck took a casualty loss deduction for the loss of his house which was worth an estimated $1,000,000 at the time of the fire. The taxpayer purchased the home for $900,000 only six months earlier, in March 2020. His insurance refused to compensate him for the loss under the circumstances; however, his neighbor’s loss of his house was covered by insurance.
The IRS audited his 2020 Form 1040 and disallowed his entire casualty loss, stating that since he set the fire, the casualty loss was due to his own negligence and the deduction was not allowed under IRC §165 as a casualty loss.
Mr. Humperdinck has come to you to help him prepare for appeals. Since the tax on the disallowed loss is greater than $25,000, your job is to write a formal protest letter countering the government’s position and requesting appeals to examine this issue.
Make sure you cite all primary authority you find in your protest letter and use Publication 5 as a guide on what needs included in your written protest letter. Do not worry about computing the amount of his casualty loss – this has already been determined and agreed upon during the audit. Ignore any state law that may apply to burning in Mercer Island…
You will need court cases to support your client’s position…
You’re only focus is on supporting your client’s position for the casualty loss of his home. Don’t worry about the larger implications of the expanded fire.
Your client’s home address:
Charles Humperdinck
14829 W Burnett Road
Nine Mile Falls, WA 99026

The objective of this assignment is to investigate two possible careers you are

The objective of this assignment is to investigate two possible careers you are interested in; finding out more about the occupations in terms of education required; regular tasks; salary; and if there is a “bright outlook” in terms of future job demand; and reflecting on the benefits of your investment in a baccalaureate degree. Considering the assignment objective, answer the following questions be weaving them into a logical, interesting 3 to 4 page essay.
What is the cost of a Stockton degree? Go to the Stockton Bursar website at http://intraweb.stockton.edu/eyos/page.cfm?siteID=226&pageID=4. Estimate the total cost of your undergraduate degree and explain how you arrived at that in your essay.
How much total debt do you think you will accumulate for your undergraduate degree? Is this greater than the average for the nation, New Jersey and Stockton? To see this, visit https://www.ticas.org/interactive-map/If you don’t have any loan debt, that is fine.
Research your college major and career interests. Use the Department of Labor website of O*NET at http://www.onetonline.org/ to look up at least 2 careers/jobs under the “Keyword” search. Summarize the information about these jobs, especially whether they have a “bright” outlook in terms of future growth, and median salary in the U.S. and also the median salary in New Jersey. You will have to click on a state and move to the New Jersey Department of Labor website at the bottom to do this. According to O*NET, what have you learned about the salary and other prospects of possible jobs/careers that interest you?
Reflect on the costs of your education compared to the benefits of lifetime employment. If a basic financial planning rule of thumb is that your undergraduate student loan debt should not be greater that the salary earned in your first professional job 1 to 5 years after graduation, will you be within this “debt-to-income” ratio or limit? Will you have borrowed too much money for school?
