customers owed her $3,000 at year-end. During the year, Mary spent $5,500

for supplies, $1,500 for utilities, $15,000 for rent, and $500 for miscellaneous

prescription medicine and $700 to a therapist for rehabilitation. Mary’s

o. Mary and Steve acquired their home on February 15, 2021, for $300,000

(also its value throughout the year). They purchased it by paying $40,000 as

a down payment and borrowing $260,000 from a credit union. In January

2021, they paid points of $2,600 to obtain the loan and during 2021 they paid

$6,567 in interest on the loan. Their home is the collateral for the loan.

p. This year they donated $1,700 to the Red Cross. Mary also gave $200 in

cash to various home-less people she met on the streets during the year.

Once a month, Steve does volunteer work at a Goodwill Industries outlet

about 20 miles from their home. Altogether, Steve traveled 500 miles during

the year driving to and from the Goodwill outlet. Steve has determined that

the services she provided during the year are reasonably valued at $1,500.

Prior to moving into their new home, Steve and Mary donated excess

possessions to Goodwill Industries. They estimated that they paid over $900

for these items, including clothing, a table, and a couch. However, although

the items were in excellent condition, they were worth only $160.
