    Q 71 Ans A:

    Both DTA and DTL should increase, but since increase in DTA is more we will have to pay lower taxes and hence tax expense should decrease.

    Q 72 Ans: C

    This is a slightly complicated problem, but can be divided into 6 steps:-

    Calculate the tax liability for this year => $10,000 * (tax rate = 60%) = $6,000
    Calculate revised estimates of 2009 DTA and DTL – here you need to focus that the revised DTA and DTL will be the more than older one due to increase in tax rate.
    Revised DTA = {(new tax rate)/(old tax rate)} * DTA for 2009

    Therefore, revised DTA = (0.6/0.4)* $2000 = $3000
    Revised DTL = {(new tax rate)/(old tax rate)} * DTA for 2009
    Therefore revised DTL = (0.6/0.4)* $4000 = $6000

    Find the DTA and DTL impact in the current year due to the temporary difference. This will be equal to (tax rate) * DTA or DTL
    Therefore incremental DTA for 2010 = 0.6 * $2000 = $1200
    Therefore incremental DTL for 2010 = 0.6 * $3000 = $1800

    Find the new DTA and DTL in 2010
    New DTA = Revised 2009 DTA + Incremental DTA in 2010
    New DTA = $3000 + $1200 = $4200
    New DTL = Revised 2009 DTL + Incremental DTL in 2010
    New DTL = $6000 + $1800 = $7800

    Find the change in DTA and DTL
    Change in DTA = 2010 DTA – 2009 DTA = $4200 - $2000 = $2200
    Change in DTL = 2010 DTL – 2009 DTL = $7800 - $4000 = $3800
    Income tax expense = taxes payable + change in DTL – change in DTA
    Income tax expense = $6000 + $3800 - $2200 = $7600

    You can get wrong answers
    If you mistakenly assume the equation as below you will get $4400
    Income tax expense = taxes payable + change in DTA – change in DTL
    If you estimate the revised like below then you will get $6800
    DTA(L) = 2009 DTA(L) + (difference between the tax rate) * 2009 DTA

    US GAAP treats DTA & DTL as current or non-current based on the

    non-current

    Q74 Ans B:

    When zero coupon debt is issued, there is no cash outflow as coupon till the maturity and hence Cash flow from operations for firms are higher. Also entire amount that is received at issuance and given at maturity is treated as cash flow from financing. Since the book value of the debt keeps on increasing the interest expense associated with the bond issue keeps on increasing.

    For debt issue having coupons, there will be cash out-flow from operations every year. If the coupon is more than the market rate, debt is issued at premium and the bond book value and interest expense decreases with time. When the debt is issued at discount, the bond book value and interest expense increases with time.
