Properly label all parts of a problem.;83.;Dawn;Taylor is currently employed by the state Chamber of Commerce. While she;enjoys the relatively short workweeks, she eventually would like to work for;herself rather than for an employer. In her current position, she deals with;a lot of successful entrepreneurs who have become role models for her. Dawn;has also developed an extensive list of contacts that should serve her well;when she starts her own business.;It has taken a while but Dawn believes she has;finally developed a viable new business idea. Her idea is to design and;manufacture bed sheets that have various colored patterns and are made of;unique fabric blends. The sheets look great and are extremely comfortable;whether the bedroom is warm or cool. She has had several friends try out her;prototype sheets and they have consistently given the sheets rave reviews.;With this encouragement, Dawn started giving serious thoughts to making;?Color Comfort Sheets? a moneymaking enterprise.;Dawn had enough business background to realize;that she is embarking on a risky path, but one, she hopes, with significant;potential rewards down the road. After creating some initial income;projections, Dawn realized that it will take a few years for the business to;become profitable. After that, she hopes the sky?s the limit. She would like;to grow her business and perhaps at some point ?go public? or sell the;business to a large retailer. This could be her ticket to the rich and;famous.;Dawn, who is single, decided to quit her job with;the state Chamber of Commerce so that she could focus all of her efforts on;the new business. Dawn had some savings to support her for a while but she;did not have any other source of income. Dawn was able to recruit Linda and;Mike to join her as initial equity investors in CCS. Linda has an MBA and a;law degree. She was employed as a business consultant when she decided to;leave that job and work with Dawn and Mike. Linda?s husband earns around $300,000;a year as an engineer (employee). Mike owns a very profitable;used car business. Because buying and selling used cars takes all his time;he is interested in becoming only a passive investor in CCS. He wanted to get;in on the ground floor because he really likes the product and believes CCS;will be wildly successful. While CCS originally has three investors, Dawn and;Linda have plans to grow the business and seek more owners and capital in the;future.;The three owners agreed that Dawn would contribute;land and cash for a 30 percent interest in CCS, Linda would contribute;services (legal and business advisory) for the first two years for a 30;percent interest, and Mike would contribute cash for a 40 percent interest.;The plan called for Dawn and Linda to be actively involved in managing the;business while Mike would not be. The three equity owners? contributions are;summarized as follows;Dawn Contributed;FMV;Adjusted Basis;Ownership Interest;Land;(held as investment);$120,000;$70,000;30%;Cash;$ 30,000;Linda Contributed;Services;$150,000;30%;Mike Contributed;Cash;$200,000;40%;Working together, Dawn and Linda made the;following five-year income and loss projections for CCS. They anticipate the;business will be profitable and that it will continue to grow after the first;five years.;Color Comfort Sheets 5-Year Income and Loss;Projections;Year;Income (Loss);1;($200,000);2;($80,000);3;($20,000);4;$60,000;5;$180,000;With plans for Dawn and Linda to spend a;considerable amount of their time working for and managing CCS, the owners;would like to develop a compensation plan that works for all parties. Down;the road, they plan to have two business locations (in different cities).;Dawn would take responsibility for the activities of one location and Linda;would take responsibility for the other. Finally, they would like to arrange;for some performance-based financial incentives for each location.;To get the business activities started, Dawn and;Linda determined CCS would need to borrow $800,000 to purchase a building to;house its manufacturing facilities and its administrative offices (at least;for now). Also, in need of additional cash, Dawn and Linda arranged to have;CCS borrow $300,000 from a local bank and to borrow $200,000 cash from Mike.;CCS would pay Mike a market rate of interest on the loan but there was no;fixed date for principal repayment.;Required;a.;Identify significant tax and nontax issues or concerns that may differ;across entity types.;b.;Provide your recommendation for forming CCS as a C corporation, S;corporation, LLC, or partnership. Explain your reasoning for your choice of;entity, identify any issues that you may still be concerned about, and;suggest recommendations for dealing with the concerns.;39.;(LO2) Zhang incorporated her;sole proprietorship by transferring inventory, a building, and land to the;corporation in return for 100 percent of the corporation?s stock.
