Definition<br />A tax liability that a company owes and does not pay <br />at that current point, although, it will be responsible <br />for paying it at some point in the future. This is often <br />caused by a difference in a company's balance sheet, <br />due to the differences between accounting practices <br />and tax regulations. Occasionally, a company will <br />have a difference in their taxable income and income <br />before tax due to these differences, resulting in a <br />Deferred tax liability.<br />
Explanation<br />Deferred tax liability is responsibility for taxes that are owed, but not yet paid. <br />There are certain circumstances in which companies or taxpayers may incur tax liability but not pay the taxes right away. <br />They record this as a liability on their accounts so that they have a more complete picture of their finances. <br />High deferred tax liability can indicate that a person or company is using unusual accounting practices and can be a cause for concern.<br />
