Motivational considerations in denominator-level capacity selection (continuation of 9-32). 1. If the plant manager gets a bonus based on operating income, he/she will prefer the denominator-level capacity to be based on normal capacity utilization (or master-budget utilization). In times of rising inventories, as in 2009, this denominator level will maximize the fixed overhead trapped in ending inventories and will minimize COGS and maximize operating income. Of course, the plant manager cannot always hope to increase inventories every period, but on the whole, he/she would still prefer to use normal capacity utilization because the smaller the denominator, the higher the amount of overhead costs capitalized for inventory units. Thus, if the plant manager wishes to be able to “adjust” plant operating income by building inventory, normal capacity utilization (or master-budget capacity utilization) would be preferred. 2. Given the data in this question, the theoretical capacity concept reports the lowest operating income and thus (other things being equal) the lowest tax bill for 2009. Lucky Lager benefits by having deductions as early as possible. The theoretical capacity denominator-level concept maximizes the deductions for manufacturing costs. 3. The IRS may restrict the flexibility of a company in several ways: a. Restrict the denominator-level concept choice (to say, practical capacity). b. Restrict the cost line items that can be expensed rather than inventoried. c. Restrict the ability of a company to use shorter write-off periods or more accelerated write-off periods for inventoriable costs. d. Require proration or allocation of variances to represent actual costs and actual capacity used. 9-34

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
