#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

Ans: Total Unearned Income= Interest Income+ dividend Income

=> 900+4,000

=> \$4,900

As per Law Governed by irs which states that If an unearned income is more than \$2,200 then kiddie tax is applicable for the same, therefore any amount above this will be taxable

Net Unearned Income= Total Unearned Income- Standard deduction

=> 4,900- 2,200

=> \$2,700

2. Simon total Tax is= \$284

If taxable income is upto 2,600 then the tax rate applied is 10% which is 260 in the case

and taxable income over \$2,600 but not over \$9,450 will be 24% of {2,700-2,600}

=> 260+ 24% of \$100

=> 260+ 24

=> \$284
