Caution! Income Tax Apportionment Bill (MTC UDITPA Amendments) Advancing Quickly

Posted On: Thursday, March 09, 2017

Among the hundreds of bills filed on the March 6 deadline was HB2100, sponsored by House Revenue & Taxation Committee Chair Joe Jett.

The legislation makes significant changes to Arkansas apportionment, particularly for receipts from services and intangibles.

Any affected taxpayers interested in adjusting the bill should act soon: the legislation already has moved out of the House Revenue & Taxation Committee and could be heard on the House floor next week. Read More

The tax administrator invoked alternative apportionment (Ark. Code Ann.ยง 26-51-718) to require the original return methodology and thereby deny the claims. Read More
