The long-term liabilities section of CPS Transportation's December 31, 2010, balance sheet included the following:
a. A capital lease liability with 15 remaining lease payments of $10,000 each, due annually on January 1:

The incremental borrowing rate at the inception of the lease was 11% and the lessor's implicit rate, which was known by CPS Transportation, was 10%.
b. A deferred income tax liability due to a single temporary difference. The only difference between CPS Transportation's taxable income and pretax accounting income is depreciation on a machine acquired on January 1, 2010, for $500,000. The machine's estimated useful life is five years, with no salvage value. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method for financial reporting purposes and the MACRS method for tax purposes. Depreciation expense for tax and financial reporting purposes for 2011 through 2014 is as follows:

The enacted federal income tax rates are 35% for 2010 and 40% for 2011 through 2014. For the year ended December 31, 2011, CPS's income before income taxes was $900,000.

On July 1, 2011, CPS Transportation issued $800,000 of 9% bonds. The bonds mature in 20 years and interest is payable each January 1 and July 1. The bonds were issued at a price to yield the investors 10%. CPS records interest at the effective interest rate.
