The information given here was taken from Yahoo! Inc.’s recent 10-K filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC). In groups, discuss the activity in the allowance for doubtful accounts during the past three years. How is the level of write-offs associated with the annual balance in the allowance? Does Yahoo! appear to have a sufficient balance each year in its allowance account?

Refer back to the balances in accounts receivable provided in Exhibit 4.5A on page 161 to help you figure out what’s going on in the allowanceaccount.
