On January 13, 2013, Precision Oil Company purchased a drilling truck for $90,000. Precision expects the truck to last five years or 200,000 miles, with an estimated residual value of $15,000 at the end of that time. During 2014, the truck is driven 48,000 miles. Precision’s year end is December 31. Compute the depreciation for 2014 under each of the following methods:
(1) Straight-line,
(2) Production,
(3) Double-declining-balance.
Using the amount computed in (3), prepare the journal entry to record depreciation expense for the second year, and show how the Drilling Truck account would appear on the balance sheet.
