Collins Company incurs a 1 000 book expense that it deducts
Collins Company incurs a $1,000 book expense that it deducts on its tax return. The tax law is unclear whether this expense is deductible, so the deduction leads to an uncertain tax position. Assuming a 35% tax rate, the deduction results in a $350 tax benefit.

For each of the following independent cases, determine how much of the tax benefit associated with the uncertain tax position Collins can recognize and how much of a tax contingency reserve for uncertain tax benefits Collins needs torecord.
