Cash method what entities can use it?


Under the cash method, you include in your gross income all items of income you actually or constructively receive during the tax year. If you receive property and services, you must include their fair market value (FMV) in income. 

For tax year 2021, the following
entities cannot use the cash method, or any combination that includes it:

  • A corporation (not SCORP or qualified PSC) with average annual gross receipts over $26 million.
  • A partnership with a corporation (other than SCORP) as a partner, and with the partnership having average annual gross receipts exceeding $26 million.
  • A tax shelter.

Requesting a change in accounting method:

Form 3115 is required to request a change in either an overall accounting method or the accounting treatment of any item. IRS approval is required to change from the cash method to an accrual method or vice versa, or change the method or basis used to value inventory. Approval is not required to correct a math or posting error.
