Question: a truck was acquired on july 1 2014 at a...

Question details

A truck was acquired on July 1, 2014, at a cost of $172,000. The truck had a six-year useful life and an estimated salvage value of $28,000. The straight-line method of depreciation was used. On January 1, 2017, the truck was overhauled at a cost of $25,000, which extended the useful life of the truck for an additional two years beyond that originally estimated (salvage value is still estimated at $28,000). In computing depreciation for annual adjustment purposes, expense is calculated for each month the asset is owned.

Prepare the appropriate entries for January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.
