CFA Practice Question

All of the following are reported on the income statement net of taxes except ______ (GAAP, after 2015).

I. extraordinary items
II. accounting changes
III. operating income
A. I and II
B. III only
C. I and III
Explanation: Other non-operating items are reported on the income statement net of taxes. Operating income is not reported net of taxes; rather, it is reported as operating income before income taxes and the related income taxes expense is reported separately. While companies no longer must entitle events and their effects as extraordinary, they still have to disclose infrequent and unusual events on the income statement and their effect BEFORE income taxes.
