During the past couple of years, ROCK has taken advantage of bonus depreciation and § 179 deductions and fully remodeled the premises and upgraded its leasehold improvements. This year, ROCK wrapped up its remodel with the purchase of $20,000 of office furniture for which it will claim a § 179 deduction. (For simplicity, assume that ROCK uses the same cost recovery methods for both tax and financial purposes.) There is no depreciation adjustment for alternative minimum tax purposes.

ROCK invests much of its excess cash in non-dividend-paying growth stocks and tax-exempt securities. During the year, the LLC sold two securities. On June 15, 2015, ROCK purchased 1,000 shares of Tech, Inc., stock for $100,000; it sold those shares on December 15, 2015, for $80,000. On March 15, 2014, ROCK purchased 2,000 shares of BioLabs, Inc., stock for $136,000; it sold those shares for $160,000 on December 15, 2015. These transactions were reported to the IRS on Forms 1099–B; ROCK's basis in these shares was reported.

Net income per books is $840,000. The firm's activities do not constitute “qualified production activities” for purposes of the § 199 deduction. On January 1, 2015, the members' capital accounts equaled $200,000 each. No additional capital contributions were made in 2015. In addition to their guaranteed payments, each member withdrew $250,000 cash during the year. The LLC's balance sheet as of December 31, 2015, is as follows:

                                                                                                            Beginning                       Ending

Assume that all debt is shared equally by the members. Each member has personally guaranteed the debt of the LLC.

The business code for “Agents and Managers for Artists, Athletes, Entertainers, and Other Public Figures” is 711410. The LLC's Form 1065 was prepared by Ryan Ross and sent to the Ogden, UT IRS Service Center. All members are active in LLC operations.
