Our Readers Catch Us!

Published on: 10:47AM Apr 17, 2013

In our post yesterday on the deferred payment contracts, we had indicated that there were six different combinations of income that could be reported using the three contracts shown.  A couple of very observant readers had indicated we had missed one.  The one missed was that all three contracts could be reported in 2013.  Therefore, to recap the amounts that could be reported as follows:

  • $50,000
  • $60,000
  • $70,000
  • $110,000
  • $120,000
  • $130,000
  • $180,000


These are the seven different amounts of income that could be reported.  For example, if you wanted to increase your income by $150,000, you would have to decide between $130,000 and $180,000.  You would not be able to pick exactly $150,000.

Many thanks to the observant readers out there for catching this.
