My hot and sexy GF just gave me a chocolate-covered marshmallow Easter egg. Yummmmmmmm!!

Vote for one or the other:

A. I prefer chocolate-covered marshmallow Easter eggs.

B. I prefer Girl Scout cookies.

And here's the tax issue: If I now prepare her income tax return, does the FMV of the Easter egg get included in my taxable income? SE income, too?

Peeps are taxable. Lunch is not taxable.

Fields v Commissioner

Respondent examined returns for a period of 3 years and determined that several items of a confectionery nature should be included in petitioner's gross income. Petitioner performed services as an independent contractor for his sister-in-law's incorporated bakery for which he also received more traditional pecuniary compensation. The parties stipulate that over the years in question, petitioner received approximately 33 ea pans of brownies w/o nuts, 56 ea pans of brownies with nuts, 15 ea bundt cakes, 3 linear feet of continuously deposited coffee cake (experimental), 235 pounds of Fudge Nuggets, 4 ea meat pasties (curry flavor), 1 gross lemon pies, 6 pecks sesame granola, 19 dl custard sauce, and one malformed chocolate rabbit. Petitioner argued that the receipt of confectionery goods was merely incidental to the services he performed and properly constituted a gift. The Court, relying heavily on Duberstien, concurred that the goods were gifts, and ruled for the petitioner. Despite allegations of impropriety on the part of Justice Harmn (he had frequently been seen entering court with traces of a 'milk mustache'), Respondent decided not to appeal.

The chocolate-covered marshmallow Easter egg is a gift as are other things you have not elaborated on.

You will prepare her return for no charge because you want to.

C) The hot and sexy girlfriend....unfortunately, not much associated with them is deductible though. In fact, they generally represent a significant negative cash flow! :D

this thread will quickly descend further, I'm sure

I can already visualize, almost taste, the various chocolate/bunny/etc humor.

Chocolate covered, is she? Give me a dark skinned girl any day! They get sweeter the darker they are. As I'm getting older, I can't spring right into Spring anymore. The rabbit in me usually get's cranked up around June now; but the young lady at the local Smoothie King will grind up my Viagra in my shake if I tip her good. As good a drink as it is, my doctor won't let me have it more than once a week now, on account of my blood pressure (several times he's checked it recently, and there isn't any).

This thread has i'm sorry to say, no i'm not, descended when I first posted my "VOTE". Believe me, noone has a worse mind than me.

Betcha your wrong there Gen, wanna ask my staff? they are required to sign a sexual harrassment waiver prior to entering employment.

I vote for smores. And no comment regarding the descension here.

Genskitty (talk|edits) said:

I'll take that bet Fred. No one has to sign a sexual harrassment waiver with me. jon says that I think and talk more about sex than he or anyother guy.

Genskitty (talk|edits) said:

Hey Fred, I'm able to make the simplest cleanest purest thing sound very sexual and dirty.

Fsteincpa (talk|edits) said:

I can see JD and Tom taking the action now. And poor Natalie is thinking about this time that it's bad enough she's sitting there laughing her little bicycling butt off at the screen, now she's going to have to answer to hubby about why she sitting there blushing red hot and breathing heavy and all that good stuff.

I am thinking it would be a fun bet that I am quite sure would be interesting. I could turn a a viewing at a wake into a hug and grope, errr consoling opportunity.

Genskitty (talk|edits) said:

If can turn a simple hand shake into a "Nice to Meet You" type of hand shake. Under the guise of it's nice to meet you. lol

TaxNerd (talk|edits) said:

Right on Fred. A funeral is a great place to meet girls. And down here in the south, we treat the family reunion as a great place to score. I say that with tongue firmly in cheek, of course. Those charges of us southerners dating our cousins is blown way out of proportion. I never dated my cousin. We had sex, but we never dated. Reminds me of the other day: I was having sex with my sister and she started giggling. I said "What's so funny?" She said, "You screw just like dad." I said, "I know, mom told me."

OK, back to taxes.

Fsteincpa (talk|edits) said:

Ok then. No wonder my Kentucky born GF is always getting slapped in the arse by her brothers when she walks by. And here I thought it was simple sibling abuse.

Would anyone like to post some entries in my general ledger? (that's an old joke from the undergrad accounting days - oh to be young and carefree again!)

There is always one of these posts the day before D day! :D


Must be all the probing questions and all of client interaction throughout the year!


You guys crack me up...Taxnerd, that just wasn't right man.

All I asked was do you like the marshmallow eggs or the Girl Scout cookies...

Kevinh5 (talk|edits) said:

14 April 2009
depends on who they are served on

and can we get down on all fours and lick them off (the candy or the cookies)

Natalie (talk|edits) said:

ROFL

Harry, now you know, you never ask questions about girl scouts . . . or even girls for that matter.
