At the end of the preceding year, World Industries had a
deferred tax asset of $12,000,000, attributable to its only
temporary difference of $48,000,000 for estimated expenses. At the
end of the current year, the temporary difference is $43,000,000.
At the beginning of the year there was no valuation account for the
deferred tax asset. At year-end, World Industries now estimates
that it is more likely than not that one-third of the deferred tax
asset will never be realized. Taxable income is $11,800,000 for the
current year and the tax rate is 25% for all years.
