What is the difference between a cash basis taxpayer and an accrual based taxpayer?

Friday, June 26, 2015
A cash basis taxpayer only reports income or expenses that he or she has actually received or paid out as opposed to an accrual based taxpayer which reports sales on account (sales made but money not collected for) and accounts payable (expenses incurred but not paid).
