Case 16-5 Tax Effects of accounting changes and error
correction; six situations
William-Santana, Inc. is a manufacturer of high-tech
industrial parts that was started in 1997 by two talented engineers with little
business training. In 2011, the company was acquired by one of its major
customers. As part of an internal audit, the following facts were discovered.
The audit occurred during 2011 before any adjusting entries or closing entries
were prepared. The income tax rate is 40% for all years.
a. A
five-year casualty insurance policy was purchased at the beginning of 209 for
35,000. The full amount was debited to insurance expense at the time.
b. On
December 31, 2010, merchandise inventory was overstated by 25,000 due to a
mistake in the physical inventory count using the periodic inventory system.
c. The
company changed inventory cost methods to FIFO from LIFO at the end of 2011 for
both financial statement and income tax purposes. The change will cause a
960,000 increase in the beginning inventory at January 1, 2010.
d. At the
end of 2010, the company failed to accrue 15,500 of sales commissions earned by
employees during 2010. The expense was recorded when the commissions were paid
in early 2011.
e. At the
beginning of 2009, the company purchased a machine at a cost of 720,000. Its
useful life was estimated to be 10 years with no salvage value. The machine has
been depreciated by the double-declining balance method. Its carrying amount on
December 31, 2010, was 460,800. On January 1, 2011, the company changed to the
straight-line method.
f. Additional
industrial robots were acquired at the beginning of 2008 and added to the
company’s assembly process. The 1,000,000 cost of the equipment was
inadvertently recorded as repair expense. Robots have 10-year useful lives and
no material salvage value. The class of equipment is depreciated by the
straight-line method for both financial reporting and income tax reporting.
For each situation
1. Identify
whether it represents an accounting change or an error. If an accounting
changes, identify the type of change.
2. Prepare
any journal entry necessary as a direct result of the change or error
correction as well as any adjusting entry for 2011 related to the situation
described. Any tax effects should be adjusted for through the deferred tax
liability account.
3. Briefly
describe any other steps that should be taken to appropriately report the
E 16-24 Balance sheet classification

E 16-25 multiple tax rates; balance sheet classification
Case Development began operations in December 2011. When
property is sold on an installment basis, Case recognizes installment income
for financial reporting purposes in the year of the sale. For tax purposes,
installment income is reported by the installment method. 2011 installment
income was 600,000 and will be collected over the next three years. Scheduled
collections and enacted tax rates for 2012-2014 are as follows:
2012 $150,000 30%
2013 250,000 40
2014 200,000 40
Pretax accounting income for 2011 was 810,000, which
includes interest revenue of 10,000 from municipal bonds. The enacted tax rate
for 2011 is 30%.

described above, prepare the appropriate journal entry to record Case’s 2011
income taxes.
