You can assume that your tax cash income should remove the a/r difference of 63,152 from income. Then add 61,081 for the payables effect. The difference almost washes out.

No assumption about cash made.
Meet increase in receivables increased accrual basis income. If you start with accrual basis, removing receivables decreases income for cash basis.
Decreases in payables decrease cash basis income as those reductions are treated as current year expenses.
