Question 2 - Accounting Change and Error Correction
On December 31, 2010, before the books were closed, the management and accountants of Baker Inc made the following determinations about three depreciable assets:
1. Depreciable asset A was purchased January 1, 2006. It originally cost $620,000 and, for depreciation purposes, the straight-line method was originally chosen. The asset was originally expected to be useful for 10 years and have a zero salvage value. In 2010 the decision was made to change the depreciation method from sum-of-the-years'-digits to straight-line, and the estimates relating to useful life and salvage value remained unchanged.
2. Depreciable asset B was purchased January 1, 2006. It originally cost $125,000 and was depreciated on the straight-line method basis. The asset was originally expected to be useful for 15 years and a salvage value of $5,000. In 2010, the decision was made to shorten the total life of this asset to 10 years and to estimate the salvage value at $2,000.
3. Depreciable asset C was purchased January 1, 2006. The asset's original cost was $180,000, and this amount was entirely expensed in 2006. This particular asset has a 8-year useful life and no salvage value. The straight-line method was used for depreciation.
Income in 2010 before depreciation expense amounted to $380,000
Depreciation expense on assets other than A, B, and C totaled $70,000 in 2010.
Income in 2009 was reported at $350,000
