This PodCast pertains to a common accounting issue, the differences between tax and GAAP treatment of items. Here, we focus on a case involving the time for recognizing an expense. The matter involved rebates and we look at a Chief Counsel Memorandum (ILM 200834019) outlining the IRS's view on why the taxpayer in this case could not recognize the expense related to rebates at the time a sale was made.
