Bridging the GAAP to Tax
The rules and regulations surrounding tax codes and accounting standards change almost daily, and keeping up with them can seem like a full-time job. At KSM, staying on top of these changes is what we do, and we’ve been helping our clients understand and capitalize on them for decades. Accounting for income taxes under ASC 740 is no exception.
ASC 740 is a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle (GAAP) that establishes standards of financial accounting and reporting for the effect of income taxes on a company’s financial results. It provides a necessary but complex framework for tax accounting and provision.
