Tony Garcia opened a small dryer repair shop, Garcia Repair Shop, on January 2, 2010. The shop also sells a limited number of dryer parts. In January 2011, Garcia realized he had never filed any tax reports for his business and therefore probably owes a considerable amount of taxes. Since he has limited experience in running a business, he has brought you all his business records, including a checkbook, canceled checks, deposit slips, supplier’s invoices, a notice of annual property taxes of $2,310 due to the city, and a promissory note to his father-in-law for $2,500. He wants you to determine what his business owes the government and other parties. You analyze all his records and determine the following as of December 31, 2010:

Unpaid invoices for dryer parts ........$ 9,000

Parts Sales (excluding sales tax) ......... 44,270

Cost of parts sold .............. 31,125

Workers’ salaries .............. 18,200

Repair revenues .............. 60,300

Current assets ............... 16,300

Dryer parts inventory ............ 11,750

You learn that the company has deducted $476 from the two employees’ salaries for federal income taxes owed to the government. The current Social Security tax is 6.2 percent on maximum earnings of $102, 000 for each employee, and the current Medicare tax is 1.45 percent (no maximum) earnings). The FUTA tax is 5.4 percent to the state and .8 percent to the federal government on the first $7,000 earned by each employee, and each employee earned more than $7,999. Garcia has not filed a sales tax report to the state (5 percent of sales).
