Tax – Research Problem

Research Problem:
Samantha Spartan is an instructor of Accounting at Bull Ranch Community College (BRCC) located in
Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Instructors at BRCC are hired on a semester by semester basis as needed and
are paid as independent contractors receiving a 1099 for each semester’s work. Samantha has filed her
personal 1040 using a Schedule C to report income from self-employment. Samantha also prepares tax
returns for a number of clients and includes that income (and expenses from her account ting business)
on the same Schedule C along with her BRCC income. Samantha considers all her work “accounting”
and includes the teaching and client work on the same Schedule C since many of her clients are
recruited from her former students to subsequently become her clients. Samantha also sometimes
employs former students to help her with her growing accounting business.
Typically, instructors like Samantha have masters degrees and a professional credential such as the CPA.
These so-called “term faculty” receive contracts each semester based on student demand for classes at
Samantha has been teaching at BRCC each fall and spring semester for four years as she has been
offered a new contract for each semester (except summer) since she started teaching. Instructors like
Samantha teach classes at the undergraduate level and advise students.
The Dean of the Business College at BRCC has indicated to Samantha that there will no longer be
instructor positions like hers available at BRCC. The school is becoming a University and would be
required by statute to employ “terminally qualified” faculty as part of the school’s conversion to
University status. In order to continue working at BRCC Samantha would need to show progress toward
her Ph.D. degree.
Samantha enrolled in the highly regarded Ph.D. program at Southern State University in Atlanta and
must be on campus in Atlanta two days a month for her doctoral seminars. Samantha also recruited
clients in Atlanta so that she could service the clients when she made her trips to Atlanta. The Dean at
BRCC has arranged her classes so that Samantha can meet her obligations at BRCC and make her trips to
Atlanta. Additionally, the Dean provided a letter to Samantha indicating that the requirements for
teaching at BRCC would (by statute) require a Ph.D. degree from a respected school such as Southern
State in order for Samantha to keep her teaching position.
Samantha completed her first year at Southern State and (on her Schedule C) deducted her tuition
($28,000), travel costs to Atlanta ($12,000) and her books

Hedge accounting

Would you recommend to the Controller executing a forward exchange contract in this situation? Why or why not? Be specific.
A cash flow hedge is a hedge of an exposure to variability in the cash flows of a specific asset or liability, or of a forecasted transaction, that is attributable to a particular risk. It is possible to only hedge the risks associated with a portion of an asset, liability, or forecasted transaction, as long as the effectiveness of the related hedge can be measured.
Explain the accounting for a cash flow hedge for the effective and the ineffective portion of any gain or loss for the hedging item and the hedged item on the income statement and the statement of OCI.
For a cash flow hedge, when a hedging transaction relates to a forecasted transaction, when should any gains or losses be reclassified from OCI to earnings?
Finally, under what circumstances or situations should cash flow hedges be terminated? Be specific.
A fair value hedge is a hedge of the exposure to changes in the fair value of an asset or liability. It is used to minimize fluctuations in earnings caused by changes in fair values from one period to another period.
Explain how the accounting for a fair value hedge differs for the hedged item and for the hedging item compared to the accounting for a cash flow hedge. Be specific and include an example, if you need to, to explain the difference.
Write a paper of 2-3 pages double-spaced in length, not counting the title and the reference page(s) and any Exhibit(s) or Appendices. Submissions in excess of 3 pages are acceptable.
