DEFINITION of 'Comprehensive Tax Allocation'

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Comprehensive Tax Allocation'

Comprehensive tax allocation does not take into account whether the period being analyzed is entirely within a single calendar or fiscal tax year. For example, if a company wanted to know what its after-tax income was for a certain period, such as from August of one year to March of the following year, then comprehensive tax allocation would be used to see what the effects of taxation are on the book income received during that period.
