Arndt, Inc. reported the following for 2021 and 2022 ($ in



 2021 2022Revenues$888  $980 Expenses 760   800 Pretax accounting income (income statement)$128  $180 Taxable income (tax return)$116  $200 Tax rate: 25%       


  1. Expenses each year include $30 million from a two-year casualty insurance policy purchased in 2021 for $60 million. The cost is tax deductible in 2021.
  2. Expenses include $2 million insurance premiums each year for life insurance on key executives.
  3. Arndt sells one-year subscriptions to a weekly journal. Subscription sales collected and taxable in 2021 and 2022 were $33 million and $35 million, respectively. Subscriptions included in 2021 and 2022 financial reporting revenues were $25 million ($10 million collected in 2020 but not recognized as revenue until 2021) and $33 million, respectively. Hint: View this as two temporary differences—one reversing in 2021; one originating in 2021.
  4. 2021 expenses included a $14 million unrealized loss from reducing investments (classified as trading securities) to fair value. The investments were sold and the loss realized in 2022.
  5. During 2020, accounting income included an estimated loss of $6 million from having accrued a loss contingency. The loss was paid in 2021, at which time it is tax deductible.
  6. At January 1, 2021, Arndt had a deferred tax asset of $4 million and no deferred tax liability.

I need help in determining the amount of the casualty insurance expense for the Current year of 2021. I know the future amount is 30million for 2022.
