I need to compute Devon’s lowest net tax payable or refund due for 2013 assuming that he makes any available elections that will reduce the tax using Forms 1040, 4562, 8332, and 8824, and Schedules A, B, C, D, and SE. It is preferred to have a description of how the numbers were computed for the forms as well.
