ASC 740 requires that the tax effects of changes in tax laws or rates be recognized in the period in which the law is enacted. Those effects, both current and deferred, are reported as part of the tax provision attributable to continuing operations, regardless of the category of income in which the underlying pretax income/expense or asset/liability was or will be reported. This chapter contains illustrative examples of the concepts surrounding changes in tax laws or rates.
