Question: On January 1 2005 the Klinefelter Company purchased a building

On January 1, 2005, the Klinefelter Company purchased a building for $520,000. The building had an estimated life of 20 years and an estimated residual value of $20,000. The company has been depreciating the building using straight-line depreciation. At the beginning of 2011, the following independent situations occur:
1. The company estimates that the building has a remaining life of 10 years (for a total of 16 years).
2. The company changes to the sum-of-the-years’-digits method.
3. The company discovers that it had ignored the estimated residual value in the computation of the annual depreciation each year.

For each of the independent situations, prepare all of the journal entries related to the building for 2011. Ignore income taxes.
