Optimizing tax accounting methods in challenging times
- August 5, 2020
Accounting methods are a valuable — but often overlooked — tool for managing tax cash flow, which is even more valuable during times of economic uncertainty. View our on-demand webinar to make sure you’re optimizing your accounting methods.
Taxpayers can use accounting methods to accelerate deductions or defer income, minimizing income or generating larger losses that can be carried back. The end result? A positive impact on cash flow. For example, the cash method of accounting is typically advantageous and was made available to more taxpayers in 2018. Depreciation planning is also an attractive option, and recent tax changes have created opportunities to accelerate deductions. Payroll taxes and prepaid expenses can be deducted at different times to allow for maximum cash flow. The current economic turmoil presents a great reason to revisit tax accounting methods and consider new opportunities.
