 P9-28A (p.517) :Capitalized asset cost and first year depreciaton, and identifying depreciation results that meet management objectives

* On January 9, 2010, Swifty Delivery Service purhcased a truck at a cost of $67,000. Before placing the truck in service, Swifty spent $2,200 painting it, $500 replacing tires, and $5,000 overhauling the engine. The truck should remain in service for 6 years and have a residulal value of $14,700. The trucks annual mileage is expected to be 15,000 miles in each of the first 4 years and 10,000 miles in each of the next 2 years-80,000 miles in total. In deciding which depreciation method to use, Jerry Speers, the general manager, requests a depreciation schedule for each of the depreciation methods (straight-line, units-of production, and double-declining blanace).

REQUIREMENTS:

1. Prepare a depreciation schedule for each depreciation method, showing asset cost, depreciation expense, accumulated depreciaiton, and asset book value.

2. Swifty prepares fianancial statements using the depreciation method that reports the highest net income in the early years of asset use. For income-tax purposes, the company uses the depreciation method that minimizes income taxes in the early years. Consider the first year that Swifty uses the truck. Identify the deprecitiaon methods that meet the general managers objectives, assuming the income tax authorities permit the use of any of the methods.
