OD: FIN 48: What You Need to Know
Recorded September 27, 2007
FASB Interpretation No. 48 “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109” (FIN 48) was issued in June 2006 and is effective for fiscal 2008 for the vast majority of independent institutions.
The goals of FIN 48 are:
- to increase relevance and comparability in financial statement reporting of federal, state and local income taxes, and
- to provide additional disclosures in financial statements about the uncertainty surrounding income tax assets and liabilities.
On November 29, 2006, the AICPA issued a Practice Guide for FIN 48. What are the implications of this Practice Guide for your institution? Although most tax exempt organizations do not include income tax provisions as part of their financial statements, this interpretation may apply in cases you’re not aware of.
