Preparers of private company and not-for-profit organization financial statements will have to implement provisions of Topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) relating to accounting for uncertainty in income taxes (formerly FASB Interpretation no. 48, commonly known as FIN 48) for annual financial statements for periods beginning after. The state courts have been particularly split over the nature of an income tax and whether it constitutes a direct property tax or an indirect/excise, which is not imposed on property. A small number of them hold that an income tax is a direct property tax; see Eliasberg Bros. Mercantile Co. v. Grimes, Ala. , 86 So. 56, 58 (); State v.

On the optimal income tax structure. They typically result in optimal marginal tax rates that are relatively constant except at the two ends of the ability distribution, where they fall to zero. The literature on optimal income taxation to deal with earnings uncertainty is much more limited, and has generally assumed away ability differences.

applied to real tax problems. For example, Saez () says \optimal income tax schedules have few general properties: we know that optimal tax rates must lie between 0 and 1, and that they equal zero at the top and bottom." The presence of multidimensional heterogeneity is critically important for optimal tax-ation.

Such uncertain tax treatments may affect taxable profit (tax loss), tax bases, tax credits or tax rates that are used to recognise and measure current or deferred tax liabilities or assets in accordance with IAS 12 Income Taxes.

This paper studies nearly optimal income taxation when individuals are uncertain about their wages and when the government observes individual income with errors.

Given the distribution of observed wage rates, it asks how the proportion of inequality known ex ante to individuals, or the proportion of observed inequality due to errors of observation, should. 6Strawczynski () also considers the optimal piecewise linear income tax, but gross income in his model is exogenous and attention is focussed, as in Varian (), on income uncertainty, so that taxation essentially becomes a form of social insurance.

Abstract. The expected utility formulation of the problem of a risk-averse agent’s allocating a portfolio between a safe and a risky asset is widely taken as standing for the proposition that if α* ε (0, 1) is the optimal allocation to the risky asset in the absence of tax, α*/(1-t) is the optimal allocation in the presence of tax at rate t, a finding obtained on the assumption that the Author: Theodore S.

Accordingly, the IFRS IC developed IFRIC 23 Uncertainty over Income Tax Treatments (IFRIC 23 or the Interpretation) to address how to reflect uncertainty in the recognition and measurement of income taxes.
