Short Answer

Pretax financial income for Lake Inc. is $300,000, and its taxable income is $100,000 for 2018. Its only temporary difference at the end of the period relates to a $70,000 difference due to excess depreciation for tax purposes. If the tax rate is 40% for all periods, compute the amount of income tax expense to report in 2018. No deferred income taxes existed at the beginning of the year.

Annual depreciation is the amount of depreciation levied on the value of an asset during a year. The value keeps on diminishing up to its scrap value or resale value.
