Deferred Tax Liabilities


Recommended Posts

Anyone very knowledgeable about U.S. GAAP and can help with this question:  Berkshire deferred tax liabilities now $82 billion.  Does that line item reflect the actual deferred tax that is (in theory) owed, or is that number the unrealized gain or something else?  I can't think it's the gain amount, but I thought I'd ask.  Thanks

The deferred tax is actually specified on items in note 16, p.94:


Deferred tax on unrealised gains: ~ USD 27.7 B

Deferred tax on taxable depreciations above accounting depreciations, accumulated, on property, plant and equiment: ~ USD 39.3 B


and so on.
