CFA Practice Question

The SFAS No. 34 requirement relating to capitalization of interest costs incurred on self-construction results in immediate tax advantages. True or False?
Correct Answer: False

To minimize income tax payments, a firm would want to expense interest costs immediately rather than capitalize them and receive the tax benefit later (in the form of greater depreciation expense).
