1. 1099's For Bad Debt Write-off. I am in the collections
department of a service industry. I recently attended a
collections seminar and the presenter suggested that our company could report any amount that we wrote off for services received but never paid for an income to the debtor through the use of a 1099-MISC.

2. Treatment of Cash Received From The Seller For Buying a
Property
. The buyer bought 4 rental properties from the Real Estate Company. And in all the four cases, the Seller paid for the 10% down payment and Closing cost. Should we reduce the amount received, from the Purchase Price and take the net amount as Cost Basis for depreciation purposes and sale purposes or there is some other alternative to the situation.

3. Accounting For Contributions For a Church. Is there a
regulation now or soon to be passed that requires all
contributions received by a 501c3 church to be given in an
envelope?
