Harnischfeger 1 Describe clearly each the accounting changes Harnischfeger made in 1984 as stated in
Note 2 of its financial statements

What is the monetary effect of the depreciation accounting method change on the
reported income in 1984? How and by how much ($) will this change affect profits in
future years?What is the monetary effect of the depreciation lives change? How and by how much
($) will this change affect future reported profits?The depreciation accounting changes assume that Harnischfeger’s plant and machinery
will last longer and will lose their value more slowly Given the business conditions
Harnischfeger was facing in its primary industries in 1984, are these economic
assumptions justified?In Note 7, Harnischfeger describes the effect of LIFO inventory liquidation on its
reported profits in 1984 Describe what is meant by LIFO liquidation and how
liquidation affects a company’s income statement and balance sheet What is the
monetary impact ($) of this LIFO liquidation on 1984 income?Note 8, states Harnischfeger’s allowance for doubtful accounts Compute the ratio of
the allowance to gross receivables (receivables before the allowance) in 1983 andWhat would the allowance have been ($) if the company maintained the ratio at
the 1983 level? How much did the pre-tax income increase ($) as a result of the changed
ratio in 1984?Note 9, page 216, states that Harnischfeger decreased R&D expense in 1984 relative to
the previous two years Do you think this change was motivated by business
considerations or accounting considerations? How and by how much ($) did this change
affect the company’s reported profits in 1984?Note 11, describes a number of changes in Harnischfeger’s pension plans inDescribe these changes as clearly as you can What are the economic
consequences of these changes to Harnischfeger and its workers?How and by how much ($) did the pension plan changes affect Harnischfeger’s
financial statements in 1984? Are these changes likely to affect future profits? If so by
how much ($)?Summarize all the accounting changes Harnischfeger made in 1984, and their
monetary impact on revenues ($), pre-tax profits ($), and cash flows ($) in 1984The financial accounting statements are used by: investors, lenders, customers,
employees, and governments in dealing with Harnischfeger Among these groups, who is
most likely to “see through” the above accounting changes, and who is least likely to do
so?Are the accounting changes likely to help or to hinder Harnischfeger’s ability to
implement its business plan? Be as specific as possible

The following scenarios are based on actual returns and situations that have occurred in this years VITA program The responses provided here would be similar to those you would provide to actual taxpayers in the event a similar situation would occur

Scenario

Inez Sanchez, age 49, ITIN # 933-12-1987 is married but has been separated from her husband since March 3, 2017 She is a housekeeper for Acme Hotels Inc She has four daughters, all born and raised in the US who lived with her the entire year who she fully supports No one had any health insurance for the entire year

Name Date of Birth Social Security Number Earnings

Polet Sanchez 09/09/2006 454-11-2222 $0

Jessica Sanchez 07/07/2004 453-11-2222 $0

Stephanie Sanchez 05/05/2002 452-11-2222 $0

Juanita Sanchez 03/03/1995 451-11-2222 $8000

For legal reasons, she tells you that she wants to file a paper return She also wants her refund mailed to her

Inez’s Refund for 2019 was $4,600

After completing Inez’s return, she mentions to you that many of her friend’s and co-workers who make about the same amount of money and have the same number of children got almost double of what she is getting?

Obviously, one of the major reasons is that she has an ITIN number and not a social security number which does not make her eligible for EIC Another reason is because she has a child who is over 24 and makes more than $4250 Lastly she has a child who turned 17 in 2019 and is no longer eligible for the child tax credit

As usual the taxpayer is upset and believes that the return was not completed correctly As the tax preparer or quality reviewer, your job is to explain to the taxpayer why your work is correct and why this changed occur

In the preparation process, all UIW-VITA procedures were followed and the results of your return are 100% accurate

Instructions

For the purposes of this scenario, you must explain to Inez why her refund is the way it is As the tax preparer or quality reviewer, your job is to explain to the taxpayer why your work is correct and why this return resulted in the refund that it did Remember, you are dealing with a taxpayer who is unhappy with your work For this assignment, you are not required to re-explain to me the results of the return again Rather, I am looking for a procedure you would use to assure the taxpayer the result of your work are accurate Remember, all of the policies and procedures that were used in the preparation process Be creative

Notice
• Use AD711 instead of LF411s here
• Don’t forget to include commentary, explanations, calculations, and justifications for the
data you are collecting
• Also, try to apply the same standard of reporting with electronic data Eg if you wouldn’t
include graphs or pictures of real data of something (like a constant voltage), then don’t
include a screenshot of a constant voltage! There’s no more information in it than just stating
the number, and it makes reports hard to read
1 Comparators
a) Connect an AD711 op-amp as a comparator (Fig 1)
b) Drive the input with a sine wave and observe the output You are using the high open-loop
gain of the op-amp and swinging between positive and negative saturation
c) Op-amps that are intended to be used as an amplifier have a slow response time, which is
caused by the internal compensating capacitor used to avoid high-frequency oscillations
Measure this limited response time
d) Connect the LM311 as a comparator and observe its improved performance
TIP for d) LM311 is not in the standard Analog Devices library You’ll have to add it yourself
Add LM311 with the asy and lib files given
The LM311 is an op-amp that is designed to be used as a comparator Unlike most
op-amps, it has a faster response, and you can change the voltage levels of the output With
this op-amp, you get -12 V if Vin < Vref and +12 V otherwise The open-collector output of
the 311 allows you to change these output levels independently of the power supply that
runs the op-amp Pin 1 comes from the emitter of the IC’s output transistor It is not
connected inside the chip Whatever voltage level you connect this pin to becomes the
output if Vin > Vref Often this pin is connected to ground Similarly pin 7 goes to the output
transistor’s collector This collector is not connected in the chip either – that’s why it is called
an open collector You connect this pin to the voltage that you want when Vin < Vref, for
example 5 V Open collector outputs are commonly used if logic voltage levels representing
“true” or “false” are different in one part of the circuit from another part
2 Schmitt trigger
a) Because of its fast response, the 311 comparator can “chatter” if Vin hovers indecisively
near the comparison point In this case, the output will swing erratically between positive and
negative output levels as the input drifts up and down by very small amounts Observe and
discuss
Tip for a) To see this, repeat the previous circuit, but this time using a noisy voltage source
provided This uses the arbitrary voltage source component, bv, which is mathematically
programmable I’ve added noise using the rand command, which generates a uniformly
distributed random number between 0 and 1, which I’ve shifted to be centered about zero
and then scaled with an amplitude The rand command looks up random numbers from a
preset algorithmic list, so that rand(1) always produces the same number, rand(2) a different
number, and so on Only integer arguments are used, so I multiplied the small (µs) time
steps by 10^6 to generate noise with a 1 MHz bandwidth Note that if you make this number
too large, it bogs down the calculation, forcing LTspice to make very small time steps Feel
free to play with it, but you may need to use the halt command in the Simulate menu
b) Calculate the trip points of the circuit in Fig 3
Tip for b) A Schmitt trigger uses positive feedback to reinforce the comparator’s decision
Immediately after the input voltage crosses the trip point (threshold level), the trip point
changes so that the input must significantly retrace its path in order to reverse the decision
This means that there are two trip points: one for rising input signals, and another, lower
one, for falling input signals
c) Build it and see if it operates like it should
d) Put a sine wave on the input and note the “hysteresis” Also note that the triggering stops
for sine waves below certain amplitudes
Tip for d) One nice way of displaying this is to export the data and plot Vin and Vout
parametrically
3 RC relaxation oscillator
Tip for Qs below) The next circuit shows a square wave generator called a relaxation
oscillator What you do here is remove the input to the Schmitt trigger and reconnect it to
one end of a capacitor The other end of the capacitor is grounded, and the capacitor is
allowed to charge through a resistor coming from the output of the comparator After the
capacitor charges to the upper trip point, the comparator output goes low to ground Now the
capacitor will discharge until it reaches the lower trip point The comparator output goes high
again and the charging cycle continues The output oscillates between high and low with a
frequency determined by the RC time constant of the resistor and capacitor
a) Predict by manually calculating the frequency of the circuit
b) Build it and measure the frequency
c) Measure the peak-to-peak voltage of the output and the voltage of the low level,
d) observe the inverting point X and explain its behaviour, and
e) try to change the frequency by changing the capacitor and resistor combination
4 Wien bridge oscillator
Tip for Qs below) Generating a sine wave is more difficult than generating a square wave
The Wien bridge circuit uses the parallel-series, a lead-lag circuit to maximize positive
feedback for its critical frequency, fc = 1/2πRC The tungsten lamp in the negative feedback
loop limits oscillations when they grow past a certain limit As the current through the lamp
increases at higher output voltages, its resistance increases and cuts down the gain of the
amplifier Thus a stable frequency is maintained by the lead-lag circuit in the positive
feedback loop, and a stable amplitude is established by the self-regulating effect of the
tungsten lamp in the negative feedback
The lamp is a really nifty way of getting the feedback right, but the simulation is a bit
challenging in LTspice, since one needs to get the lamp resistance and power rating very
close, and even then it requires a few seconds to stabilize – long for a high-frequency
simulation It’s ok try it, but I suggest replacing the lamp with a resistor
a) Calculate what resistor will give stable oscillations, rather than let the lamp auto-level it
b) Build the circuit in Fig 5 and check if its frequency is 1/2πRC
c) When you first turn it on you’ll see the amplitude grow larger until the negative feedback
increases after the lamp warms up When you poke the non-inverting input with your finger
the output will wobble If you sweep the scope slowly and poke the non-inverting input, you
can see the envelope of the oscillation bob up and down Can you explain this?
Tip for c) In real life, this oscillator gets seeded by input offset currents and random noise
and pickup Those don’t work as well in SPICE, so instead, you may need to kickstart the
oscillations If you add a pulsed voltage source to the inverting input via a 100kΩ resistor
(large enough not to perturb the existing circuit), then the feedback will get seeded by the
pulse and oscillations proceed Use a voltage source, in pulsed mode, with a single short
pulse
d) You can use this oscillator for radio frequencies Using R = 470 Ω, C = 220 pF in the
lead-lag circuit will give 1/2πRC = 15 MHz When I tried it, though, I got a frequency of
about 500 kHz The shift is probably because of stray capacitances and inductances in the
circuit Experiment yourself to get a frequency in the AM radio band We also found that
increasing the 560 Ω feedback resistor to 1 kΩ improved the output amplitude This way you
can use the oscillator for the carrier frequency of the AM transmitter of the FET experiment
Tip for d) This is harder than just changing the components You may want to approach the
frequency incrementally to watch what the circuit is doing In fact, you may need a different
op-amp! When scrolling through the list, look for the phrase “high speed”
