Question

Castle Company provides estimates for its uncollectible accounts. The allowance for uncollectible accounts had a credit balance of $17,280 at the beginning of 2011 and a $22,410 credit balance at the end of 2011 (after adjusting entries). If the direct write-off method had been used to account for uncollectible accounts (bad debt expense equals actual write-offs), the income statement for 2011 would have included bad debt expense of $17,100 and revenue of $2,200 from the collection of previously written off bad debts.

Required:
Determine bad debt expense for 2011 according to the allowance method.
