On January 9, 2010, Swifty Delivery Service
purchased a truck at cost of \$67,000. Before placing the truck in service,
Swifty spent \$2,200 painting it, \$500 replacing tires, and \$5,000 overhauling
the engine. The truck should remain in service for 6 years and have a residual
value of \$14,700. The truck’s annual mileage is expected to be 15,000 miles in
each of the first 4 years and 10,000 miles in each of the next 2 years–80,000
miles in total. In deciding, which depreciation method to use, Jerry Speers,
the general manager, requests a depreciation schedule for each of the
depreciation methods (straight line, units of production, and double declining
balance).

Requirements

1. Prepare a depreciation schedule for each
depreciation method, showing asset cost, depreciation expense, accumulated
depreciation , and asset book value.

2. Swifty prepares financial statements using the
depreciation method that reports the hightest net income in the early years of
asset use. For income tax purposes, the company uses the depreciation method
that minimizes income taxes in the early years. Consider the first year that
Swifty uses the truck. Identify the depreciation methods that meet the general
managers objectives, assuming the income tax authorities permit the use of any
of the methods.
