Given the income statement and balance sheets of Fannie’s Famous Fudge Inc. for calendar year 2017:


  1. Use the book depreciation schedule to calculate the tax depreciation and accumulated tax depreciation (cost recovery) for each asset placed in service prior to 2017.
    1. Calculate the tax gain/loss for each asset sold in 2017. Use total tax accumulated depreciation calculated in #1. Assume assets sold at same time as replacements are purchased.
    2. Calculate the book/tax difference
    1. Calculate tax depreciation expense for all assets placed in service in 2017. Use section 179 depreciation for all assets except for new vehicle and real estate.  Business usage of new vehicle is 80%. Total miles travelled in 2017 8,000, total commuting miles 500. Van is 100% business use – total mileage for 2017 = 21,100 miles.
    2. Calculate the book/tax difference
  2. Calculate all other permanent/temporary book/tax differences. Note the following: direct bad debts write-offs for 2017 = $0.  Officers’ salaries include $10,000 bonus accrued  on 12/31/16 to >50% shareholder  which was paid to her on January 5, 2018.
  3. Calculate tax expense per book, tax to be paid this year with the tax return and deferred tax liability/asset. Show your calculations (refer to Deferred Tax Worksheet)
  4. Revise income statement and balance sheet using additional information calculated in #5.
