This Portfolio Project has two parts: calculations and a 4- to 6-page essay. While the calculation requirements of this assignment are important, equally important are your discussion and analysis of the quantitative results. You will submit two documents: 1) a spreadsheet containing your horizontal and vertical analysis (and perhaps your ratios) and 2) a word document containing your essay. Choose a publicly traded company and perform an expanded analysis on the financial statements. Please use the most current 10K statements available on or annual statements in You will submit both parts separately. Part 1: Please complete the following for your chosen firm in an Excel spreadsheet: 1. Horizontal and vertical analysis of the Income Statements for the past three years (all yearly balances set as a percentage of total revenues for that year). 2. Horizontal and vertical analysis of the Balance Sheets for the past three years (all yearly balances set as a percentage of total assets for that year). 3. Ratio analysis (eight ratios of your choosing) for the past three years PLUS a measurement for the creditworthiness of your firm as measured by Altman’s Z-score. Note that if you used your chosen firm for our ratio-related discussion posts, then you MUST also present industry-average ratios or current year competitor ratios for your ratio analysis. Comparing your firm’s ratios to a close competitor or an industry-average ratio makes your analysis much more meaningful. Part 2: The Paper: • 4-6 pages in length. • Include a proper introduction and conclusion. • Include a reference page. Must be in APA format • Your paper should provide your reader with an overall understanding of the financial health of your chosen firm including the following: • o Discussion of the ratio analysis results, including rationale for the ratios chosen. o Discussion of all horizontal and vertical analysis from above. o Discussion of four items from the management discussion of the firm that support the conclusion formed in your discussion of the financial results.

Review Chapters 17, 18, and 21 on C Corporations and Partnerships in the textbook

For the Partnership (LLC) return, the following items need to be completed


Form 1065 U.S. Return of Partnership Income:

(included within the 1065 are schedules B, K, L. M1 and M2)

Separate forms

  • Statement 1; Listing of Other Deductions for the 1065 Page 1 Line 20
  • Schedule K1 Partner’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc for Tim/Jack

o   You only have to include a single K1 since Tim and Jack are 50/50 partners, their K1’s are identical


For the Corporate return, the following items need to be completed


Form 1120 U.S. Corporation Tax Return

(included within the 1120 are schedules J, K, L. M1 and M2)

Separate forms

  • Statement 1; Listing of Other Deductions for the 1120 Page 1 Line 26


A total of 5 forms; 1120, 1120 statement 1, 1065, 1065 statement 1, 1065 K1 (Tim/Jack)

Label each form as such “1120;” 1120 statement 1;” 1065;” “1065 statement 1;” “1065 K1 Tim/Jack”


You may NOT use Tax preparation software! Use of software is considered a violation of CTU’s Academic Dishonesty Policy and will result in an F for the assignment


The Income Statement and Balance Sheet are the same as in the previous assignments as are the treatment of all financial information.  There are some items in the income statement that were only partially or non tax deductible and this has not changed for this assignment.


Salaries to owners are considered “guaranteed payments to partners” or “officer’s compensation”


Don’t forget the previous IP we did on Schedule M1: recall that not all miscellaneous expenses in the income statement are tax deductible!


Hint; since you’re using the same financial statements for both the Corporation and the LLC, should there be a difference in taxable income between these two entities?



Instructor's Comments:

Submitting your 1065 and 1120 – read carefully!




You are responsible for ensuring the forms correctly upload to CTU’s website. There have been instances of IRS forms uploading BLANK, with no data! I HIGHLY SUGGEST uploading your forms then taking the time to download them and double-check that the information is still there!  Remember that BLANK FORMS YIELD 0 POINTS!

I cannot award points if your forms are blank!


  • PLEASE ensure data has been retained when you uploaded your forms to CTU!
  • Upload your forms to Submitted Assignments, then download them to doublecheck that your data has been retained in the form.
  • This is your responsibility as a student; blank forms will yield zero points! I cannot grade blank forms, nor will you have the opportunity to resubmit forms.


To mitigate the possibility of this happening you have two easy options;

  • You may print and scan your Tax Forms and submit the scans (one scan for each form or even all forms in a single scan)


  • You make take screenshots of the form using the Windows Snipping tool or other function and paste them into a Word Document

o   Ensure you capture the entire form but NOT your entire computer screen; this make it difficult or impossible to read the data on your form, if I can’t read the data I can’t grade it

  • If you submit your forms in either fashion, I do expect that your forms are submitted in order; 1040 page 1, 1040 page 2, 1040 Schedule A
  • Do not submit individual screenshots of each page.


It is your responsibility to ensure you submit ALL portions of each assignment, you need to ensure all forms are submitted for grading.

If you’re missing one or more forms, your grade will be impacted and you will not have the opportunity to submit additional portions of your assignment after it has been graded.


Do not submit forms piecemeal; submit them all at once! <

You are the HR manager of a relatively new retail company that has both retail stores and Internet sales.  Your company is steadily growing in revenue and profitability. The company realizes that in order to retain the solid, highly productive workforce it currently has in place, it is important to enhance the base compensation and benefits package offered to the employees. The company currently offers a basic compensation program and only federally mandated benefits. Employee surveys suggest the compensation and benefits program may be out of date. Employees are beginning to consider leaving the organization.

Write a six to eight (6-8) page paper in which you:

  1. Propose two (2) methods an HR professional could use to determine incentive pay. Specify the principal manner in which the proposed methods take into consideration individual, group, and company performance. Justify your response.

  5. Suggest two (2) ethical risks of making incentive pay a large portion of employees’ total compensation. Propose two (2) recommendations for ways the company might mitigate or reduce these risks.  
  6. Use at least four (4) quality academic (peer-reviewed) resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length. 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Examine the influences on and various approaches to compensation.
  • Analyze issues related to developing and implementing employee benefit packages.
  • Apply relevant theories and knowledge to human resource practices in organizations.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in human resource management foundations.
