Author Ronald W. Blasi provides expert guidance on bank-specific subjects, such as
securing capitalization of business expansion costs; avoiding disallowance of business
start-up expenditures; loan origination expenditures; and applying mark-to-market rules to
an institutions advantage while avoiding traps.
He shows how to determine if an S corporation is right for an institution and discusses
how to properly treat credit card fees, points and non-performing loans.
Beginning with a discussion of entities subject to bank tax rules, the 2000 Bank
Tax Guide provides thorough coverage of every aspect of bank taxation, with chapters
on accounting for interest, fee and other income; discounts, points and premiums;
securities dealers and investors; modified debt; foreclosures; business expenses; interest
expense; bad-debt deductions; and acquisitions.
Written in a plain-English style, the Guide contains timesaving tools such as
checklists, worksheets and tables. Pertinent references to the Internal Revenue Code,
Gramm-Leach-Bliley, regulations, cases and rulings are provided and the recently released
IRS Market Segment Specialization Program publication on Commercial Banking is reproduced.
