The provision for deferred tax should be $12 million, the balance in the trial balance is an overprovision of tax relating to the preceding year.

The statement of financial position will show the estimate of the current year tax within current liabilities. There will also be the deferred tax position at the reporting date too.
The statement of profit or loss shows the tax charge, being the current tax adjusted for any under/over provision and the movement in the deferred tax balance.
