If the S corporation is a partner in a partnership(s) and the distributive share of ordinary business income (loss) from that partnership(s), which is included in the S corporation’s ordinary business income (loss), takes into account changes made to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) after March 1, 2020, the S corporation must issue to each shareholder a statement providing the total amount by which the shareholder must adjust his or her share of the S corporation’s ordinary business income (loss) to account for the Article 22 decoupling (see Part WWW of Chapter 58 of the Laws of 2020) for that partnership(s). Generally, the amount to provide to the shareholders is computed as follows:

Subtract the amount(s) reported in box 1 of the federal Schedule K-1(s) issued to the S corporation by the partnership(s), (as that amount reflects changes to the IRC after March 1, 2020) from the amount reported to the S corporation by the same partnership(s) on Form IT-204-CP, New York Corporate Partner’s Schedule K-1, line 44 (ordinary business income [loss]), (as that amount would have been computed prior to any changes made to the IRC after March 1, 2020). Provide to each shareholder his or her pro rata share of this difference.

On Form MT-203-I (10/20), Instructions for Form MT-203, under the heading Instructions for Form MT-203-S, the definition for Wholesale price has changed.

The invoice received by a distributor for its purchase of a tobacco product is presumptive evidence of the wholesale price of the tobacco product.

The industry standard adjustment ratio can no longer be used as an alternative computation of the wholesale price on tobacco products possessed for sale in New York State on or after October 1, 2020. 

Refer to the definition of Wholesale price under Definitions on Form MT-203-I, page 1, when completing the schedules on Form MT-203-S.
