E 16-1 Temporary difference; taxable income given LO1
Alvis Corporation reports pretax accounting income of $400,000, but due to a single temporary difference, taxable income is only $250,000. At the beginning of the year, no temporary differences existed. Required:

1. Assuming a tax rate of 35%, what will be Alvis's net income? 2. What will Alvis report in the balance sheet pertaining to income taxes?

Requirement 1
Since taxable income is less than pretax accounting income, a future taxable amount will occur when the temporary difference reverses. This means a deferred tax liability should be recorded to reflect the future tax consequences of the temporary difference.


Income tax expense (to balance)140,000
Deferred tax liability ([$400,000 - 250,000] x 35%)52,500
Income tax payable ($250,000 x 35%) 87,500

As a result, net income is $260,000:

Pretax accounting income$400,000
Income tax expense 140,000
Net income$260,000

Requirement 2
In its balance sheet, Alvis will report the $52,500 deferred tax liability among either its current or long-term liabilities depending on the cause of the temporary difference and the $87,500 income tax payable as a current liability. -------------------------------------------------
