The total liabilities of \$156,000 (\$150,000+\$6,000)

Explanation:

The total liabilities to be recorded at December 31 year 1 is the value of the bonds payable plus the interest for first year that is yet to be paid.

The value of the bonds payable is \$150,000 since the bonds were issued at par value.

The amount interest due at end of year 1 = face value*coupon interest rate

face value remains \$150,000

coupon interest rate is 4%

the amount of coupon due at year 1 end=\$150,000*4%=\$6000

The interest payable is a current liability while the bonds payable of \$150,000 is a non-current liability
