Reference no: EM131848086

At December 31, 2016, Acme Inc. had the following deferred tax balances:

            Deferred tax liability                                              $75,000

            Deferred tax asset                                                 50,000

            Valuation allowance                                            20,000

These deferred tax balances relate to two items. First, Acme has recorded excess tax deductions related to its plant assets. At December 31, 2016, plant assets had a book value of $1,000,000 and a tax basis of $700,000. Second, Acme had a NOL carryforward in the amount of $200,000 at December 31, 2016. Acme determined the appropriate tax rate for recording deferred taxes at December 31, 2016 was 25%.

At December 31, 2017, we have the following information related to Acme’s year-end tax accrual:

Income before income tax on the income statement equals $220,000

Tax basis of plant assets equals $620,000

Book value of plant assets equals $1,100,000

The company began selling products that carry a two-year warranty. The estimated liability for warranties has a $60,000 balance at 12/31/17.

Acme purchased 25% of the common stock of another entity during 2017 giving them significant influence. The acquired entity paid Acme $15,000 in dividends in 2017 and Acme recognized investment income of $80,000 related to this investment. The acquired company meets the qualifications for the dividends received deduction and Acme has the intention to hold the investment long-term.

Acme purchased bonds issued by the state of Iowa as a long-term investment in 2017. Acme received $30,000 of interest on these bonds in 2017.

Because of increases in company profitability this year, Acme now projects that it is more likely than not that they will realize all but 10% of the benefits associated with any deferred tax asset related NOL Carryforwards.

The company has determined that 28% is the appropriate tax rate for 2017 and all foreseeable future periods.

Acme has elected early application of the provisions of ASU 2016-17.

Required: Determine the following amounts:

a) Total deferred tax liability at December 31,2017

b) Total deferred tax asset at December 31, 2017

c) The presentation of deferred taxes on the December 31, 2017 balance sheet

d) The amount of income tax expense recognized in the Income Statement for year ended December 31, 2017

e) The total tax liability from the 2017 tax return
