In light of recent legislation changing the Internal Revenue Code, many accountants are realizing they are not quite "up to speed" on the accounting for income taxes, particularly the handling of deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities.  

This webinar addresses most issues specifically covered in FASB Statement No. 109 (ASC 740.10) dealing with current and deferred income taxes. It puts the focus on unusual, one-time entries (i.e. large unexpected gains and/or losses such as tax effects of repatriation dollars) that need to be made as a result of tax law changes. It is timely and should be welcomed by those struggling with accounting for income taxes. It is especially useful for those closing the books and preparing financial statements for 12/31/17. It also reestablishes the accounting for income tax rules and their importance going forward in 2018 and beyond
