[answered] Larry is doing Landscape business. We can claim only those


Hi!

For my submittal, I had sent this document (8719915, the attached) to my instructor. However this is what he wrote to me.?

Good Evening,

?This assignment involves using the correct tax forms not making up your own. To give you a start, one form would be a 1040 and another would be a schedule C, which is what sole proprietors use. There are two other forms that you would need for full credit. On the narrative, there are some things you can use in your tax advice but could you put it in a memo format rather than an outline and I will regrade it.

Please help me to understand what needs to be done, please help. What are the other two forms and how should they be filled out? Thank you.


Larry is doing Landscape business. We can claim only those expenses which are related to

 

business. He is using 15% office space for business purpose; therefore we have considered

 

home related and home insurance expense up to 15% as business expenses.
