Course Materials

This course will analyze various components of accounting for income taxes that can be traps for the unwary, including certain business combination issues, valuation allowance assessments, tax internal controls, along with implications of recent tax law changes and other areas of complexity.


ASC 740 provides a methodology for recognizing current taxes payable and refundable and recording expected deferred tax obligations and refunds. Few areas of financial reporting are more complex. Continued tax law changes, as well as anticipated changes to income tax accounting disclosures and other updates from the FASB, this course will take a fresh look at these complex areas and their implications to income tax provision calculations.

Listen as our panel of accounting experts provides practical advice as well as hands-on examples of calculations and financial presentation of these continually revised tax provisions.
