Accounting for Income Taxes (ASC 740)

Complexity Made Simple

As income tax provision reporting requirements become increasingly complex, professionals are working harder to comply with tax accounting standards under US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards, or IFRS. And with tax reform passing late in 2017, there are several additional disclosures and exercises with new and lasting impacts—making compliance even more complicated.

Controls around the accounting for income taxes can be a critical source of material weakness in a company’s internal controls over financial reporting. Accounting for income taxes can also be a primary reason for restating financial statements.
