Mr. Z, a non-dealer, sold assets on an installment plan. Determine Mr. Z's gross income for 2012. Relevant data include:

In order to determine the Gross Income, we must first determine the gross profit percentage which = Gross profit/contract price. A. 50,000/200,000 = .25
B. 81,000/300,000 = .27
C. 96,000/400,000 = .24

Now we must take the total collected for each year and multiply it by the percentage to determine the gross income for monies collected. \$25,000.00(.25) = \$6,250.00 + \$80,000.00 (.27) =\$21,600.00 + \$125,000.00(.24) = \$30,000.00

Total Gross Income for 2012 = \$57,850.00
