The accounting records of Shinault Inc. show the following data for 2017 (its first year of operations).

1. Life insurance expense on officers was $9,000.

2. Equipment was acquired in early January for $300,000. Straight-line depreciation over a 5-year life is used with no salvage value. For tax purposes, Shinault used a 30% rate to calculate depreciation.

3. Interest revenue on State of New York bonds totaled $4,000.

4. Product warranties were estimated to be $50,000 in 2017. Actual repair and labor costs related to the warranties in 2017 were $10,000. The remainder is estimated to be paid evenly in 2018 and 2019.

5. Gross profit on an accrual basis was $100,000. For tax purposes, $75,000 was recorded on the installment-sales method.

6. Fines incurred for pollution violations were $4,200.

7. Pretax financial income was $750,000. The tax rate is 30%.
