You are reviewing UM Co.'s adjusted trial balance for the year ended 12/31/10. You notice several errors and omissions during your review, some of which are noted below. For each one, you are to determine what effect, if any, these items would have on the stated components of UM Co.'s 2010 Income Statement and 12/31/2010 Balance Sheet if they are not corrected or updated. Assume no income taxes. Use the following code for your answers. Do not include any dollar amounts. N = No Effect O = Overstated U = Understated (24 points) Additional Information 12/31/10 Book value of Total Assets 12/31/10 T otal Liabilities Additional Information 12/31/10 Book value of Total Assets 12/31/10 Total Liabilities 2010 net income 12/31/10 owner?s equity The company is supposed to use the Allowance method of Uncollectibles. Uncollectible accounts of $7,000 are estimated at the end of the year and recorded as a debit to Bad Debts Expense and a credit to Accounts Receivable. The journal entry for depreciation expense on equipment for 2009 was recorded for $48,000. It should have been recorded at $84,000. Cash dividends declared and paid in December 2010 were unrecorded. $10,000 of the rent revenue collected in 2010 and recorded as earned in 2010 actually pertains to 2011. Interest earned during 2010 on a note receivable was not yet collected and hence not recorded in the books. Supplies purchased during 2010 for $10,000 cash were recorded by a debit to Supplies Expense and a credit to Cash. About $2,000 of supplies still remain unused at the end of the year, but no further entries have been made. 3.
