3-year period ending December 31, 2013? Prepare a schedule showing the amount of accumulated depreciation at December 31, 2013, under the method selected. Ignore present value, income tax, and deferred income tax considerations. The straight-line method would provide the highest total net income for financial reporting over the three years, as it reports the lowest total depreciation expense. These computations are provided below. Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation

Determine the amount of accumulated depreciation at December 31, 2011. Ignore present value considerations. MACRS Rates (%) Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation Depreciation Rate Annual Depreciation Accumulated Depreciation The general MACRS method would have higher depreciation expense ($709,002) than that of the optional straight-line method ($450,000) for the three-year period ending December 31, 2013. Therefore, the general MACRS method would minimize net income for income tax purposes for this period.

Name: Date: Instructor: Course: small machine-tool manufacturer, acquired for $1,260,000 a piece of new industrial equipment. The new equipment had a useful life of 5 years, and the salvage value was estimated to be $60,000 . Locke estimates that the new equipment can produce 12,000 machine tools in its first year. It estimates that production will decline by 1,000 units per year over the remaining useful life of the equipment. The following depreciation methods may be used: (1) Straight-line, (2) Double-declining balance, (3) Sum-of-years'-digits, and (4) Units-of-output. For tax purposes, the class life is 7 years. Use the MACRS tables for c omputing depreciation.

    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.
