This depends on if the taxpayer is cash basis or accrual basis for tax purposes. They can still have accounting using GAAP and be a cash basis taxpayer; If it's a school, more likely than not they will be accrual basis and will record revenues when earned. Also, the tax and book year end can be different so that comes into play as well.
