At the beginning of 2013, Norris Company had a deferred tax liability of $6,600, because of the use of MACRS depreciation for income tax purposes and units-of-production depreciation for financial reporting. The income tax rate is 30% for 2012 and 2013, but in 2012 Congress enacted a 40% tax rate for 2014 and future years.
Norris’s accounting records show the following pretax items of financial income for 2013: income from continuing operations, $136,500 (revenues of $334,000 and expenses of $197,500); gain on disposal of Division F, $22,200; extraordinary loss, $18,300; loss from operations of discontinued Division F, $11,500; and prior period adjustment, $17,700, due to an error that understated revenue in 2012. All of these items are taxable; however, financial depreciation for 2013 on assets related to continuing operations exceeds tax depreciation by $7,200. Norris had a retained earnings balance of $144,000 on January 1, 2013, and declared and paid cash dividends of $44,000 during 2013.
