May I please have assistance with the following question:
At the end of 2018, there was a $16M balance in company y’s deferred tax asset account. The balance was attributable to a cumulative temporary difference of $35M in a liability for estimated expenses. The tax rate is 35%. No temporary differences existed at the beginning of the year. Assuming it is more likely than not that one-half of the deferred tax assest will not be realized, prepare the journal entry to record income taxes. Taxable income is $50M.
There is no further information as it relates to the problem.
