Hall normally charges $6,000 per month to lease its gym, but as an incentive, Hall gave Dunn half off the first year's rent and one quarter off the second year's rent. Dunn's rental payments were as follows: Year 1: 12 × $3,000 = $36,000 Year 2: 12 × $4,500 = $54,000 Year 3: 12 × $6,000 = $72,000 Year 4: 12 × $6,000 = $72,000 Dunn's rent payments were due on the first day of the month, beginning on April 1, Year 1. What amount should Dunn report as rent expense in its monthly income statement for April, Year 3?The annual rent before incentives is $72,000 ($6,000 × 12 months), but the first year's rent is $36,000 ($72,000 × 50%), and the second year's rent is $54,000 ($72,000 × 75%). Consequently, the straight-line monthly rent expense over the 4-year term of the operating lease is $4,875 [($36,000 + $54,000 + $72,000 + $72,000) ÷ (12 months per year × 4 years)].
