Interest Netting Resource
Interest netting computations require specific expertise.
A corporation that has overpaid and underpaid tax within overlapping federal tax years may be entitled to interest relief. However, the rules and regulations surrounding penalties and interest of over and underpayments can be confusing. Interest netting helps equalize the differential in a claim for a refund by:
- Determining related overlapping periods where different interest rates were charged
- Identifying appropriate interest amounts and rates
- Computing the net rate of interest
Typically, over and under payments or associated interest occurs as a result of a recent or ongoing tax deficiency or controversy proceeding. Interest netting can be used to offset the over and underpayment interest against each other, ultimately reducing what is owed and saving interest.
