At year-end 12/31/2014, tenants had prepaid Harvard rent of $30,000 for the year 2014.
Fines for pollution appear as an expense of $5,000 on the income statement
Harvard’s tax rate is 40% for all years, and the company expects to report taxable income in all future years. There are no deferred taxes at the beginning of 2014.
