### FRA

An analyst gathered the following information about a company:
• Taxable income = \$100,000.
• Pre tax income = \$120,000.
• Current tax rate = 20%.
• Tax rate when the reversal occurs will be 10%.
What is the company's tax expense?
1. \$22,000.
2. \$24,000.
3. \$10,000.

Explanation
Deferred tax liability = (120,000 − 100,000) × 0.1 = 2,000
Tax expense = current tax rate × taxable income + deferred tax liability
0.2 × 100,000 + 2,000 = 22,000
Kindly explain what is meant by “Tax rate when the reversal occurs will be 10%.”
Why is the answer option 2 not correct?

Hi Pooja

In this Question you have given pretax income and taxable income, from this you can find out
Deferred Tax Liability= Pretax Income- Taxable Income, which is \$20,000.

Now you have to find out Income Tax Expense= 20% Taxable Income+10% Deferred Tax Liability
=0.2*100,000+0.1*20,000
=20,000+2000
=\$22,000
(The tax rate when the reversal is occur is applicable on Deferred Tax Liability and current tax rate is applicable on taxable income.)
