Hi Folks - is there a field for cash taxs (not book taxes paid) during a given period? If not, how do I infer that?
No. Companies are not required to report cash taxes. Many of them do anyway, however. If you look at a company’s financial statements, they will often have a line at the bottom of the cash flow statement stating their actual income taxes paid. Or they’ll include that information in an appendix. Or they’ll itemize it as one of the changes in operating assets and liabilities.
But it’s not standardized and not required by GAAP, so we don’t have that information.
