Instructions
a. For each of the numbered paragraphs, prepare the necessary adjusting entry (including an explanation).
b. Refer to the balances shown in the unadjusted trial balance at August 31. How many months of expense are included in each of the following account balances? (Remember, Campus Theater adjusts its accounts monthly. Thus, the accounts shown were last adjusted on July 31, 2011.)
1. Utilities Expense
2. Depreciation Expense
3. Accumulated Depreciation: Building
c. Assume the theater has been operating profitably all year. Although the August 31 trial balance shows substantial income taxes expense, income taxes payable is a much smaller amount. This relationship is quite normal throughout much of the year. Explain.
