Such sales total $50,000 during 2013. Turf has $10,000 of the goods in its beginning inventory and $40,000 in its ending inventory.
On January 1, 2013, Turf sells a machine with a book value of $15,000 to Minnie for $20,000. The machine has a 5-year life and is being depreciated on a straight-line basis. Minnie reports a net income of $60,000 for 2013 and pays $5,000 in dividends in 2013.
