Fore Farms reported a
pretax operating loss of $292 million for financial reporting
purposes in 2021. Contributing to the loss were (a) a penalty of $4
million assessed by the Environmental Protection Agency for
violation of a federal law and paid in 2021 and (b) an estimated
loss of $10 million from accruing a loss contingency. The loss will
be tax deductible when paid in 2022.
The enacted tax rate is 25%. There were no temporary differences at the beginning of the year and none originating in 2021 other than those described above. Taxable income in Fores’s two previous years of operation was as follows:
1. Prepare the journal entry to recognize the income tax benefit of the net operating loss in 2021. Assume Fore will carry back its NOL to prior years.
