1. As of December 31, 2011, what amount, if any , of sales taxes due should be recognized in eVade’s financial statements?

Assuming the financial statements for year ending 12/31/2011 have not been issued, an adjustment to sales tax liability can be recognized for the entire $25,000.000. As well, affected prior period statements will need to be re-stated. This is consistent with FASB codification ASC250-10-45-23

2. What effect, if any, does eVade’s decision to participate in the tax amnesty program have on the amount recognized as of March 31, 2012?

According to ASC250-10-50-9 the participation in the tax amnesty program will cause a liability to be recorded in the current year statements and adjustments for prior periods. If comparative financial statements are issued, the prior year column will need to reflect the adjustment and a change in opening balance (retained earnings) for the current year.
