- Of the $20,000 interest income, $5,000 was from a Seattle City bond (issued in 2017), $7,000 was from a Jacksonville City bond issued in 2015, $6,000 was from a fully taxable corporate bond, and the remaining $2,000 was from a money market account.
- This gain is from equipment that ABC purchased in February and sold in December (i.e., it does not qualify as §1231 gain).
