Cash to Accrual for Rent Revenue MCQ
Marr Corp. reported rental revenue of $2,210,000 in its cash basis federal income tax return for the year ended November 30, Year 2. Additional information is as follows:
Rents receivable – November 30, Year 2 $ 1,060,000
Rents receivable – November 30, Year 1 800,000
Uncollectible rents written off during the fiscal year 30,000
Under the accrual basis, Marr should report rental revenue of:
$2,500,000 is correct. We can create a rent receivable rollforward to determine what rent revenue would be under the accrual basis.
Our starting point is the November 30, Year 1 balance of $800,000. Rent revenue is our PLUG. We would decrease rent receivable for the $2,210,000 of cash rent collected. Lastly, we would also decrease rent receivable for $30,000 of write-offs (rent receivable is credited in a write-off).
The ending rent receivable balance is $1,060,000. Based on the rollforward, rent revenue would be $2,500,000.
All of the other options are incorrect.
