DirectionsRead the scenario below carefully,
and then research the tax issues . Communicate
your conclusions and provide supportive analysis in the format of a tax
file memo submitted as a Microsoft Word document (see the sample memo
provided in the Course Documents section of the course). Remember, the
conclusion section will be a clear and concise statement of your
findings – usually just a few sentences per tax issue. The bulk of your
work will be done in the analysis section, as this is the most important
section of the memo. You should include a detailed review of the
controlling laws and detail the strengths and weaknesses of both sides
of the tax argument(s).Scenario: Robert and

state. Robert (age 88) suffers from numerous medical disorders and is
