    (Carryback and Carryforward of NOL, No Valuation Account, No Temporary differences)

    The pretax financial income (or loss) figures for Synergetics Company are as follows:

    2006 $160,000
    2007 250,000
    2008 90,000
    2009 (160,000)
    2010 (350,000)
    2011 120,000
    2012 100,000

    Pretax financial income (or loss) and taxable income (loss) were the same for all years involved. Assume a 45% tax rate for 2006 and 2007 and a 40% tax rate for the remaining yers.

    Prepare the journal entries for the years 2008 to 2012 to record income tax expense and the effects of the net operating loss carrybacks and carryforwards assuming Synergetics Company uses the crryback provision. All income and losses relate to normal operations. (in recording the benefits of a loss carryforward, assume that no valuation account is deemed necessary.)
