Ryan Salmon (111-11-1112), Oscar Young (222-22-2223), Clark Coleman (333-33-3334), and
Kim Hoffman (444-44-4445) are equal, active, and unrelated members in Salmon Construction
LLC (Salmon). Salmon provides residential construction services for clients that build custom
homes in the Orange County area. The LLC’s Federal ID number is 55-5555556. It uses the cash
basis and the calendar year and began operations on January 1, 2008. Its current address is 2501
Irvine Boulevard, Suite 2100, Tustin, CA 28782. The financial information enclosed from the
LLC’s income statement for the current year.
Recently, Salmon has taken advantage of bonus depreciation and § 179 deductions and fully
remodeled the premises and upgraded its leasehold improvements. This year, Salmon wrapped
up its remodel with the purchase of $90,000 of office furniture for which it will claim a §168(k)
deduction. (For simplicity, assume that Cam uses the same cost recovery methods for both tax
and financial purposes.) There is no depreciation adjustment for alternative minimum tax
Salmon invests much of its excess cash in dividend-paying stocks and tax-exempt securities.
During the year, the LLC several securities transactions. On June 15, purchased 1,000 shares of
Angus, Inc. stock for $100,000; it sold those shares on December 15 for $80,000. On March 15
of last year, Salmon purchased 2,000 shares of Young Machinery, Inc. stock for $189,000; it
sold those shares for $199,500 on December 15 of the current year. These transactions were
reported to the IRS on Forms 1099–B; Salmons’ basis in these shares was reported.
Each member received an equal guaranteed payment for services rendered. Also, Ryan Salmon
loaned the partnership $1,000,000 in 2009. It is an interest only note due in 2028. The LLC
issued Ryan a 1099 INT for the interest on the loan.
Net income per books is $1,480.700. On January 1, the members’ capital accounts equaled
$300,000 each. No additional capital contributions were made this year. In addition to their
guaranteed payments, each member withdrew $200,000 cash during the year. All contributions
and distributions have been in cash, so the LLC has no net unrecognized § 704(c) gain or loss.
The LLC’s balance sheet as of December 31 of this year is also enclosed.
Except for the Ryan Salmon loan, all debt is shared equally by the members. Each member has
personally guaranteed the line of credit debt of the LLC. All members are active in LLC
For our purposes, assume that Salmons’ operations constitute one active trade or business for
purposes of the passive activity and at-risk limitations. (Note that the § 179 deduction is a
business-related expense.).
