In the latest report from the Georgia Tech Financial Analysis Lab, located in the College of Management, Professor Charles Mulford warns of increased tax payment risks to capital-intensive companies. He identifies companies that may be facing increased taxes from a reduction in capital spending that may arise from the slowing economy.

According to the report, firms that reduce their capital spending could see increased tax payments.

Mulford says the situation is part of the consequences of deferred tax liabilities. The risks occur when capital expenditures are reduced, resulting in reductions in deferred tax liabilities. Income taxes, which were deferred in previous periods, come due, resulting in higher tax payments.

Such increased tax payments may occur during difficult economic times as companies respond to slack demand by reducing capital spending.
