Granger Supply, Inc., has two main areas of inventory, industrial supplies and industrial cleaning equipment. The FIFO inventory method is used for industrial supplies, and the LIFO method is used for the cleaning equipment.

During the first quarter, the company experienced unprecedented demand for its cleaning equipment and as a result liquidated a significant portion of its beginning inventory of equipment. The cost of sales —cleaning equipment is based on the historical cost of the liquidated layers.

During the second quarter, the market for industrial supplies strengthened and the inventory of industrial supplies at the end of the second quarter had a fair value of only $25,000 less than FIFO cost. Interim income tax expense is based on the following estimates:
Prepare an income statement for each of the first two quarters of the current year. All supporting schedules should be in good form.
