Chapter 1 (5 pts) 1. Briefly discuss the purpose of the Sixteenth Amendment. The 16th amendment states that congress has the power to indirectly or directly tax income from any source derived. The purpose of the sixteenth amendment is to allow the government to create income taxes. The 16th amendment was adopted in 1903, when three-fourths of the states ratified the agreements. If these taxes are not paid, the government has the night to take income or land as payment. Chapter 2 (5 pts) 2. Explain the two "safe harbors" available to an Individual taxpayer to avoid a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. The first safe harbor rule states that as long as the taxpayers quarterly payments equals 90% of what is due on the tax return they can escape a penalty. The second safe harbor allows the taxpayer to avoid a penalty as long as they pay 100% of the amount from the previous year’s tax return. If the taxpayer’s AGI exceeds $150,000, they must pay 110% of the previous year’s return. Chapter 3 (5 pts) 3. Explain the distinction between an "above the line" deduction (i.e. FOR AGI) and a below the line deduction (i.e. FROM AGI). Which one is more valuable?

A default gateway in computer networking is the node that is assumed to know how to forward packets on to other networks.

...3. The similarities in both Figures 1-3 and 1-4 is that they are both set in a circular motion and have the same sections (Planning, Analysis, Design, Implementation, and Maintenance). The difference is that Figure 1-3 is in a constant circle going through the different processes in an everlasting motion and Figure 1-4 is in a spiral motion until it ends which would represent the end of the project. 5. Figures 1-3 and 1-12 are similar as they are both takes on the SDLC. The difference is that Figure 1-3 has 5 sections that are in a circular motion. Figure 1-12 only has 4 sections and the process repeats on User Design and Construction. Having the repeats on only 2 different sections as opposed to all 5 sections would allow for a faster project completion. 6.

...Homework Assignment Week 1 1. Why is it important to use systems analysis and design methodologies when building a system? Why not just build the system in whatever way seems to be “quick and easy”? What value is provided by using an “engineering” approach? It is important to use the systems analysis and design methodologies when building a system to make sure the system is created to better the company or customer the system is being built for. Using the "quick and easy" way to build a system can cause the system to be sloppy and not working properly. Using this method can cause more issues than it does fixing it. Using the "engineering" approach is most useful when creating a system for a dangerous workplace. Using this style is an approach in loss prevention placing emphasis on physical features of the workplace as a potential cause of injuries. 10. Compare Figures 1–10 and 1–11. What similarities and differences do you see? The similarities in the two diagrams are that they both lead to a completed system. The differences in the diagrams is that figure 1-10 condenses the process into four steps, where figure 1-11 has it split into six steps. Also figure 1-10 is a constant circle, always starting back at the beginning to make sure the new system is adequate and best serves the company or customer. Figure 1-11 uses a spiral affect, same idea as figure 1-10, just does not seem to put as much emphasis in the beginning when the process starts to repeat......
