    Solution Preview

    A. A not-for-profit organization does not pay income taxes. It also does not sell stock or pay dividends. Therefore, any increase in equity will be due to net income for the period. (The general formula is Equity at the beginning of the year-net loss for the year+ net income for the year + capital additions-capital subtractions=Equity at the end of the year.) In this case, the net income is:

    Equity at the end of the year $1,980,000
    Equity at the beginning of the year 1,380,000
    Net income for the year $ 600,000 ...
