49 Accounting Cycle Exercises II Problem 8 Problem 8
Mont Blanc Corporation is a small business operating in a state where a tax on income is contrary to the
state’s constitution. In an effort to raise revenue, the state has imposed a tax on business receipts for services
provided to customers (total revenues, whether collected during the period or not). The tax is equal to 1% of
revenues in excess of $300,000.
Mont Blanc prepared its state tax return by adding up the total deposits to the company’s bank account
during the year. Total deposits were $1,240,000, and the company paid taxes of $9,400 (($1,240,000 $300,000) X 1%).
Assume you are an auditor for the state, and Mont Blanc has been randomly selected for a routine
review. You immediately find that the company does not maintain a typical journal/ledger system, and is
fundamentally clueless about proper accounting procedures.
You have discovered the following limited information as part of your examination:
Fact 1 Total deposits included $450,000 that resulted from issuing shares to
stockholders. Fact 2 The total deposits included $75,000 of interest income on investments. Fact 3 The total deposits included $2,700 that was the result of a bank error. The
bank subsequently discovered the error, and removed the funds from Moncrief’s
account. Fact 4 Mont Blanc provides some services for cash, and portions of that money are
never deposited to a bank. The company maintains a cash receipts book and
you have determined that $74,100 was collected from customers but never
deposited. Fact 5 Bank deposits during the period included a $3,600 refund check from a vendor
relating to an overpayment for supplies. Fact 6 The company deposits included $42,000 that was the result of a refund of an
overpayment of federal income taxes. Fact 7 During the year, Mont Blanc collected a customer deposit toward a future
contract. This $30,000 advance was deposited and subsequently refunded when
both parties mutually agreed to cancel the contract. Fact 8 Mont Blanc has many customers for which services are provided on account. As
of the beginning of the year, the balance due from customers was $390,000. By
the end of the year, accounts receivable had grown to $1,170,000. Mont Blanc
has never experienced a problem with non-payment, and all customers pay
their accounts in full within 90 days of a transaction. Download free eBooks at bookboon.com
