William operates a gourmet market in Raleigh, NC Bill’s Market, as an accrual-basis sole proprietorship. The information on gross sales, expenses, and property transactions is shown below. William receives no salary and therefore, there is no related FICA tax for him. The Market sold a unique piece of equipment for $13,000. It had originally cost $5,000 when purchased on March 5, 2015; it had an adjusted basis of $3,000 when sold on August 15, 2019. The Market also sold a display case for $1,000 on December 12, 2019, that had cost $12,000 when purchased on June 6, 2013; it had an adjusted basis of $4,000 when sold. The gains or losses on these asset sales are the same for tax and financial accounting. The business complies with all Form 1099 requirements.

A Form 4797 is completed for the business property dispositions; the sale of the stock is entered on the Form 8949; the net gain on the equipment disposition and the gain or loss on the stock are both included on the Spicer’s Schedule D. The depreciation recapture, if any, is also entered on Form 4797 and is transferred directly to the Spicers’ Form 1040. Two other items are not included on the Schedule C—the health insurance for William and his family (which is deducted on page 1 of the Form 1040 as a deduction for AGI) and the charitable contribution (which is included with the Spicers’ personal charitable deductions on their Schedule A). June is allowed to deduct 14 cents per mile for the 1,200 miles driven ($168) for her volunteer work along with her out-of-pocket charitable expenses of $232. Their other itemized deductions are $23,800 for mortgage interest, $7,800 for Real Estate taxes, and $680 for Personal Property taxes. Their dividend income is taxed at the Capital Gain rate, while the rest of their income is taxed at the regular rates.
