The paper deals with methodological and theoretical aspects of accounting for investment tax deduction and assigned value of the asset in terms of rules and regulations of international standards and national standards of the United States (US GAAP). The problem of imperfection of IAS 12 «Income Taxes» in the part of accounting of deferred taxes at initial recognition of the asset is raised. The peculiarities of valuation at fair value when tax effects are included in the amortized value of the asset are disclosed. The calculation of the assigned value of the asset and deferred tax for investment tax deduction, as well as their accounting on accounting accounts is substantiated. The results of the work can be useful in improving national accounting standards and developing corporate accounting policies, as well as in the framework of related theoretical research. As promising directions in the field of the research topic can be highlighted a comparative analysis of the Russian investment tax deduction with the American investment tax credit; and methodological approaches to accounting for the latter in the U.S. in the 1960s.
