January 1, 2007 Nelson Company leases certain property to Queens Company at an annual rental of $60,000 payable in advance at the beginning of each year for 8 years. First payment received immediately. Leased property, which is new cost 275,000 and has an estimated economic life of 8 years and no residual value. Interest rate implicit in the lease is 12% and lease is noncancelable. Nelson company had no other costs associated with this lease. It should have accounted for this lease as a sales-type lease but mistakenly treated it as an operating lease.
Compute the effect on income before income taxes during the first year of the lease as a result of Nelson company classification of this lease as an operating lease rather than a sales-type lease.
