Sunland Co. establishes a $102,000,000 liability at the end of 2017
for the estimated site-cleanup costs at two of its manufacturing facilities. All related closing costs will be paid and deducted on the tax return in 2018. Also, at the end of 2017, the company has $51,000,000 of temporary differences due to excess depreciation for tax purposes, $7,140,000 of which will reverse in 2018.
The enacted tax rate for all years is 40%, and the company pays taxes of $65,280,000 on $163,200,000 of taxable income in 2017. Sunland expects to have taxable income in 2018.
Assuming that the only deferred tax account at the beginning of 2017 was a deferred tax liability of $10,200,000, draft the income tax expense portion of the income statement for 2017, beginning with the line "Income before income taxes." (Hint: You must first compute (1) the amount of temporary difference underlying the beginning $10,200,000 deferred tax liability, then (2) the amount of temporary differences originating or reversing during the year, and then (3) the amount of pretax financial income.)
How do I calculate (1), (2), and (3)?
