On August 1, 2017 FF was notified by its legal counsel that FF was being sued by a former employee regarding her termination of employment from FF.

On August 1, 2017 FF was notified by its legal counsel that FF was being sued by a former employee regarding her termination of employment from FF. On December 21, 2017, a legal settlement was reached with this terminated employee. As part of the settlement, FF agreed to pay the employee a settlement amount of $190,000 on January 10, 2018. FF accrued this expense on its 2017 financial statements.

FF maintains a portfolio of tax-exempt securities (none of which is a private activity bond) and publicly-traded stocks as a measure to provide immediate liquidity if needed (none of these investments is debt financed). All of these securities originate from less than 20% owned domestic corporations.

From inception until this year the Rapid Coaster had been FF’s main attraction. However due to safety, crowd appeal, and other factors, FF disposed of the Rapid Coaster on March 1, 2017 and purchased a new attraction known as the Vomitnator. The Rapid Coaster originally cost $2,000,000 and was placed in service on September 1, 2006. The Rapid Coaster was fully depreciated for book and regular depreciation purposes.

The Vomitnator was installed and rendered operational on March 1, 2017.  The Vomitnator cost $6,000,000 to acquire, install, and make ready for service.

FF’s regular tax depreciation for the year is correctly calculated as $1,112,499 before considering the 2017 addition of the Vomitnator. FF does not want to claim any current year bonus depreciation. 

Near the end of the year, FF switched its property and casualty insurance company. As a result, the plan year for its insurance contract was altered. On December 31, 2017 FF prepaid insurance premiums of $25,000 representing coverage through February 15, 2018 as a condition of being accepted by the new company. FF did not expense any of the prepayment for financial accounting purposes

FF rents from vendors several pieces of equipment to use in its business. As of December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2017, respectively, FF had prepaid vendors for equipment rental of $30,000 for January 2017 and $35,000 for January 2018.

On December 26, 2017 FF prepaid a contractor $17,500 to repair several pieces of maintenance shop equipment in January of 2018. FF fully expects that the contractor will have completed the project by January 31, 2018.

All the accrued wages and bonus amounts on the financial statements as of December 31, 2017 were paid on February 28, 2018.

As of December 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, FF had vacation accruals on its books of $29,000 and $35,000. As of March 15, 2017 and 2018, respectively, FF had paid $5,000 and $8,000 of those accrued amounts.

On December 2, 2017, the millionth customer entered the park. To recognize the accomplishment and to promote the amusement park through print and radio media advertisements, FF held a give-away contest wherein the lucky customer deemed to be the millionth customer would be given $100,000. The check was presented to the lucky winner on January 15, 2018. 

The land on which FF resides is owned by the county. FF has a very favorable lease with the county that allows FF the ability to sublease any portion of the ground to another tenant. The board of directors of FF made the decision in the fall of 2017 to seek out a tenant for unimproved land that would not be utilized in any potential expansion plans. FF identified the potential renter and entered into a contract with the renter on December 1, 2017. The rent period is to begin on January 1, 2018; however, as part of the contract, the renter was required to pay a full six-month rental amount ($50,000) to FF by December 31, 2017. FF received a check of $50,000 on December 27, 2017 from the renter. This rental payment is not refundable to the renter under any circumstances.

FF maintains an inventory of several items that it uses in its amusement park. Inventory is valued at cost. FF has never has never changed it inventory method. FF uses specific identification for its inventory. FF has never written down any subnormal goods. The rules of Section 263A (Unicap) apply to FF. The Unicap calculated costs related to ending inventory at December 31, 2016 and 2017, respectively, were $15,000 and $19,000.

On December 1, 2017, FF paid a $400,000 dividend to all common stockholders.

During the year, FF made federal estimated income tax payments of $72,500 each on April 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of 2017 ($290,000 in total). If FF has overpaid its current year estimated taxes, it would like to apply the excess to its estimated tax payments for next year. FF is NOT a “large corporation.” FF’s 2016 tax liability was $200,000.

FF made California state estimated income tax payments of $15,000 each on April 15, June 15, September 15 and December 15 of 2017 ($60,000 in total).

FF does not have a minimum tax credit carryover from 2016.
