Cheap Auto, Inc., has asked your bank for a $100,000 loan to expand its sales facility. Cheap Auto provides you with the following data: *The 2006 ending inventory was $420,000 (FIFO). Your inspection of the financial statements of other auto

Your inspection of the financial statements of other auto sales firms indicates that most of these firms adopted the LIFO method in the late 1970s. You further note that Cheap Auto has used 10 percent of depreciable asset cost when computing depreciation expense and that other automobile dealers use 20 percent. Assume that Cheap Autos effective tax rate is 30 percent of income before tax. Also assume the following:
1. Compute cost of goods sold for 20072009, using both the FIFO and the LIFO methods.
2. Compute depreciation expense for Cheap Auto for 20072009, using both 10 percent and 20 percent of the cost of depreciable assets.
3. Recompute Cheap Autos net income for 20072009, using LIFO and 20 percent depreciation. (Dont forget the tax impact of the increases in cost of goods sold and depreciation expense.)
