Olin Business School ACCOUNTING 4680 / 563 - SPRING 2008 ADVANCED ACCOUNTING LECTURE OUTLINE - March 5, 2008 INTERIM REPORTING (continued) c. INCOME TAX EXPENSE IN INTERIM PERIODS For purposes of calculating income tax, income is measured on an annual basis, and the actual amount of income tax for a year will not be known until the year is complete. However, the matching concept would suggest that income tax expense (benefits) be recorded on an interim basis. The integral theory suggests that income tax expense (benefit) be recorded on an interim basis based on an estimate of the “effective tax rate” that will apply to the corporation over the entire fiscal year. The “effective tax rate” for a year can be estimated with the following formula: Estimated Tax Rate = Estimated Income Taxes for Year . for Year Estimated Income from Continuing Operations for Year At the end of each interim period, the estimated tax rate is calculated. This estimated tax rate is then applied to the cumulative pre-tax income through the end of the applicable interim period to determine the cumulative income tax expense (benefit) that should be recorded through the end of the applicable interim period. The cumulative income tax expense (benefit) as of the beginning of the period is then subtracted from the cumulative expense (benefit) as of the end of the period in order to calculate the applicable income tax expense (benefit) for the interim period. 1
