Uncertain Tax Position

In accounting, a situation in which a taxpayer believes its interpretation of earnings recognition is less strong than what the interpretation of the IRS is likely to be. While the FASB does not allow companies to report uncertain tax positions on financial reports, they may take these positions on their tax returns in hope that the IRS will not conduct audits.
