Lecture: Regulation 3 $50,000 accrual is deductible as compensation expense. The additional $10,000 bonus paid on March 1,
19X3 is also deductible in 19X2, even though it was not accrued at year-end 19X2. Therefore, the total
compensation is $600,000 + $10,000, or $610,000.
Choice "a" is incorrect. The additional $10,000 of bonus that was paid by March 15 of the next year is
deductible in year 19X2.
Choice "c" is incorrect. Both the $50,000 accrual and the additional $10,000 bonus paid is deductible,
assuming it is paid by March 15, 19X3.
Choice "d" is incorrect. This answer assumes that the candidate is subtracting the entire $60,000 of
bonus paid by March 15 from deductible compensation expense. This is incorrect because both the
$50,000 accrual and the additional $10,000 paid by March 15, 19X3 are deductible. CPA-02155 Type1 M/C A-D Corr Ans: D PM#76 R 3-01 58. CPA-02155 PII May 93 #49 Page 33
