The following events took place early in 2018.InstructionsDiscuss how the preceding post-balance-sheet events should be reflected in the 2017 financial statements.(a) On January 10, 10,000 shares of $5 par value common stock were issued at $66 per share.The issuance of common stock is an example of a subsequent event. A subsequent event is an event that occurs after a reporting period, but before the financial statements for that period have been issued or are available to be issued. Depending on the situation, such events may or may not require disclosure in an organization's financial statements. Examples of situations that do not trigger an adjustment to the financial statements if they occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued are:A business combinationChanges in the value of assets due to changes in exchange ratesDestruction of company assetsEntering into a significant guarantee or commitmentSale of equitySettlement of a lawsuit where the events causing the lawsuit arose after the balance sheet dateSince the issuance of common stock is a sale of equity no adjustment to the financial statements is recorded, but this event should be disclosed in either a note, supplemental schedule or in proforma financial data.(b) On March 1, Madrasah determined after negotiations with the Internal Revenue Service that income taxes payable for 2017 should be $1,270,000. At December 31, 2017, income taxes payable were recorded at $1,100,000.The change in amount of taxes payable qualifies as a subsequent event. A subsequent event is an event that occurs after a reporting period, but before the financial statements for that period have been issued or are available to be issued.

The balance sheet will also have to be amended to reflect a taxes payable increase and retained earnings decrease of$170,000.
