Economist Reports


As part of our ComplianceLinks service offering, we produce state Economist’s Reports for taxpayers that we find to be in violation of the arm’s length standard as specified in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 482 and the associated US Treasury Regulations.  The Economist’s Report contains a complete IRC Section 482 analysis for a particular taxpayer, and includes:

  • Introduction
  • Relevant State Statutes and Regulations
  • How IRC Section 482 Analyses relate to State Statute and Regulations
  • Taxpayer Background and Functional Analysis
  • Pricing Method Selection
  • Quantitative Analysis
  • Income Adjustments (if indicated by the full IRC Section 482 analysis)
  • Appendices

The Economist’s Report is accompanied by a document that state auditors can use to develop proposed audit changes for delivery to taxpayers.  We call this document the Explanation of Income and Tax Adjustments document.
