Exam 1 is a timed three and one half hour (210 minutes) Exam, with the time running once the Exam is opened. The window for the Exam is from 12 a.m. on Thursday, July 9, to 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 12 ( Los Angeles time). There will likely be over 130 questions on the Exam, so even in 210 minutes the student will need to move quickly through the Exam.

Exam consists of true-false, multiple choice, and problems. The problems have been converted to sequential multiple choice. Sequential multiple choice consists of a statement of facts and then a series of questions related to those facts; for example, what is gross income, what is the standard deduction, what are the itemized deductions, and what is TI. Generally tax return forms do not appear on the Exams but rather are in the Projects.California State University, San Bernardino Department of Accounting and Finance ACCT 426-70 & -71, Introduction to Taxation I, Summer, 2020

Homework may be done in CengageNOW for credit, per the CengageNOW assignment posted in blackboard. Other projects are submitted in blackboard at the Submit button for the assignment in online classes. Exams are taken in blackboard in online classes.

Grading Policy

Grades (Please see 426.70.71PTSMemoSU.2020 in Start Here in blackboard.)

There will be two exams, a take home tax return project, and CengageNOW homework. The project and homework will be approximately 25% of the grade. Wiley Efficient Learning Quizzes (based on CPA Exam Questions) may be completed for extra credit. THERE IS A PENALTY FOR LATE PROJECTS. CengageNOW homework and Wiley Quizzes must be completed by the due dates to earn any credit. The two exams will be approximately 75% of the grade and the homework and Quizzes will be approximately 25% of the grade.

Exam Policy

Exams are required to be taken when scheduled. In the event of dire illness or the like, notification to the professor prior to the original examination should be given. Unexcused absences result in an automatic F. THERE WILL BE ONLY ONE SCHEDULED MAKE-UP DAY FOR EXAMS. IN AN ONLINE CLASS, BECAUSE OF THE WINDOW OF SEVERAL DAYS TO TAKE THE EXAM, MAKE-UP EXAMS WILL USUALLY NOT BE GIVEN AND STUDENTS MUST TAKE THE EXAM WHEN SCHEDULED (OR BE ASSIGNED AN AUTOMATIC F). (To be eligible for the possible assignment of an “I” grade, usually the student must have no more than one uncompleted exam at the conclusion of the assigned date for the final exam.) Exams will most likely consist of multiple choice, true-false, and problem questions. Problems have been converted to sequential multiple choice: a statement of facts and a series of multiple choice questions similar to working through problem computations. Exams in online courses are posted in blackboard.

Cheating

This course is taught as part of a curriculum leading to a profession governed by agreed-upon ethical standards. (In fact, some professional tax accounting ethical questions often arise and are considered during the course.) If a student is found to be cheating – during an exam or in any other manner – a breach of ethical standards for students has occurred. Penalties for such breaches will include a zero on an exam (if involved), a failing grade for the course (at the discretion of the instructor), and other sanctions (deemed appropriate by the instructor). General campus expectations are that exams are the particular student’s own work without the assistance of others. Course expectations are that students may work together on projects, homework, and quizzes, as long as each student submits his or her own work.

Suggestions (Please see the memo posted in blackboard How to Manage this Course ACCT 426.70.71SU.2020)

To improve your chances of learning and achieving a good grade, the following suggestions are offered from the instructor’s and prior students’ experiences. You need not do all of these: choose what works for you. Items 1 is strongly recommended.

(1) Read chapters, at least those portions involved in the problems and lectures; work problems (in CengageNOW, if you desire the credit) and use the solutions manual posted in blackboard for assistance; stay on the syllabus schedule.

(2) Participate in class – answers, questions, and suggestions.

(3) Contact prior students who have taken this course/instructor.

(4) Contact the instructor – early if you do.*

(5) Use the textbook’s online materials in CengageNOW – early if you do.*

(6) Know where you can find some answers on your own (for example, irs.gov, 1040 instructions, Publication 17).

(7) Work extra problems – for the ambitious.

(8) Not everyone and not all accountants are tax-oriented. Some students repeat this course with this instructor or others.

*It is probably never too late to improve oneself, but past experience shows these forms of assistance are often more beneficial when used earlier.

The instructor reserves the right to make changes in this syllabus with notice.
