NOTES:
1. SMITH owns 30 percent of the outstanding Hobble Corp. (HC) stock. Hobble Corp.
reported $1,000,000 of income for the year. SMITH accounted for its investment in HC
under the equity method and it recorded its pro rata share of HC’s earnings for the year.
HC also distributed a $200,000 dividend to SMITH.
2. Of the $20,000 interest income, $5,000 was from a City of Seattle bond (issued in
2013) that was used to fund public activities, $7,000 was from a Tacoma City bond
(issued in 2012) used to fund private activities, $6,000 was from a fully taxable corporate
bond, and the remaining $2,000 was from a money market account.
3. This gain is from equipment that SMITH purchased in February and sold in December
(i.e., it does not qualify as §1231 gain).
4. This includes total officer compensation of $2,500,000 (no one officer received more
than $1,000,000 compensation).
5. This amount is the portion of incentive stock option compensation that vested during
the year (recipients are officers).
6. SMITH actually wrote off $27,000 of its accounts receivable as uncollectible.
7. Regular tax depreciation was $1,900,000 and AMT (and ACE) depreciation was
$1,700,000.
8. In the current year, SMITH did not make any actual payments on warranties it
provided to customers.
9. SMITH made $500,000 of cash contributions to qualified charities during the year.
10. On July 1 of this year SMITH acquired the assets of another business. In the process
it acquired $300,000 of goodwill. At the end of the year, SMITH wrote off $30,000 of the
goodwill as impaired.
11. SMITH expensed all of its organizational expenditures for book purposes. It expensed
the maximum amount of organizational expenditures allowed for tax purposes.
12. The other expenses do not contain any items with book–tax differences.
13. This is an estimated tax provision (federal tax expense) for the year. (In a subsequent
class period, we will learn how to compute the correct tax provision.) Assume that
SMITH is not subject to state income taxes.
14. SMITH calculated that its domestic production activities deduction (DPAD) is
$90,000. This amount is not included on the audited income statement numbers.
