In addition, tax depreciation exceeded book depreciation by $40,000. Finally, the Company received $3,000 of tax-exempt life insurance proceeds from the death of one of its officers. Assuming a tax rate of 34%, the Corporation's deferred income tax expense or benefit for 2011 would be: A. $11,900 net deferred tax expense B. $11,900 net deferred tax benefit C. $15,300 net deferred tax benefit D. $15,300 net deferred tax expense The increase in the reserve for bad debts is a deductible temporary difference of $5,000. The excess of tax depreciation over book depreciation is a taxable temporary difference of $40,000. The result is a net taxable temporary difference of $35,000, which results in a net deferred tax expense of $11,900 ($35,000 × 34%).
