writes a check for $10,000 from the personal account. With respect to the interest expense on the $10,000 loan,
A) it will all be treated as trade or business expense.
B) 60 percent will be treated as personal interest expense and 40 percent as trade or business expense.
C) it will all be treated as personal expense.
D) 20 percent will be treated as trade or business expense.
If borrowed and personal funds are mingled in the same account, expenditures from that account are treated as coming first from borrowed funds. Therefore, the $6,000 vacation payment is considered as coming from borrowed funds, and only $4,000 of the business supply bill is treated as coming from borrowed funds. Accordingly, the interest expense will be allocated 60% to personal use and 40% to business use.
