Question

Ingles Corp. changed from the straight-line method of depreciation on its plant assets acquired early in 2009 to the double-declining-balance method in 2011 because of a change in the pattern of benefits received (before finalizing its 2011 financial statements). The assets had an eight-year life and no expected residual value. Information related to both methods follows:
Net income for 2010 was reported at $270,000; net income for 2011 before depreciation and income tax is $300,000.
Assume an income tax rate of 30%.
