Question

LaceCo has adopted certain aggressive policies concerning its deduction for domestic production activities (DPAD). The entity estimates that it will reduce its federal income tax liability by $400,000 as a result of these strategies but that the IRS is likely to challenge the policies in an audit. LaceCo estimates that the tax benefit may be reduced after an IRS audit and related negotiations ( amounts as indicated with related probabilities); LaceCo constructs a table of these probabilities and results

$400,000    10%    10%

300,000 35%    45%

250,000 40%    85%
