At the beginning of 2010, Norris Company had a deferred tax liability of $6,400, because of the use of MACRS depreciation for income tax purposes and units-of-production depreciation for financial reporting. The income tax rate is 30% for 2009 and 2010, but in 2009, Congress enacted a 40% tax rate for 2011 and future years.
The accounting records of the Norris Company show the following pretax items of financial income for 2010: income from continuing operations, $120,000 (revenues of $352,000 and expenses of $232,000); gain on disposal of Division F, $23,000; extraordinary loss, $18,000; loss from operations of discontinued Division F, $10,000; and prior period adjustment, $15,000, due to an error that understated revenue in 2009. All of these items are taxable; however, financial depreciation for 2010 on assets related to continuing operations exceeds tax depreciation by $5,000. The company had a retained earnings balance of $161,000 on January 1, 2010 and declared and paid cash dividends of $32,000 during 2010.
