The first course compares and contrasts the federal income tax rules for recognizing revenue and expense and for capitalization with the rules for financial and regulatory accounting purposes. The second course focuses on the specific issues in the financial and regulatory reporting of income taxes for rate-regulated utilities. Both courses reflect relevant provisions of the recently-enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
