at the beginning of 2007 norris company had a deferred 249772

At the beginning of 2007 Norris Company had a deferred tax liability of $6,400, 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 2006 and 2007, but in 2006 Congress enacted a 40% tax rate for 2008 and future years. The accounting records of the Norris Company show the following pretax items of financial income for 2007: income from continuing operations, $120,000 (revenues of $352,000 and expenses of $232,000); gain on disposal of Division F, $23,000; extraordinary loss, $18,000; loss from operations of discontinued Division F, $10,000; and prior period adjustment, $15,000, due to an error that understated revenue in 2006. All of these items are taxable; however, financial depreciation for 2007 on assets related to continuing operations exceeds tax depreciation by $5,000. The company had a retained earnings balance of $161,000 on January 1, 2007 and declared and paid cash dividends of $32,000 during 2007.
