California Expands Availability of Pass-Through Entity Tax Credit
On February 9th the Governor signed SB 113, which expands the pass-through entity elective tax benefits
Details of the Benefits
- Repealing the tentative minimum tax limitation on the Pass-Through Entity Elective Tax Credit;
- Allowing partnerships/S corporations/LLCs with owners that are partnerships to make the election (although the tax can’t be paid on behalf of the partnership owner);
- Allowing SMLLCs that are pass-through entity owners to claim the Pass-Through Entity Elective Tax Credit (although SMLLCs are still prohibited from making the election themselves); and
- Changing the credit ordering rules related to the Pass-Through Entity Elective Tax Credit to increase the benefit for taxpayers that claim the Other State Tax Credit (beginning with the 2022 tax year).
The expansion of the pass-through entity tax regime means taxpayers who previously did not make the payment as a result of the previous California tentative minimum tax limitations by December 31, 2021 may now do so and still receive a benefit for the 2021 tax year.
