Analysis of Article 9A General Business Corporation Franchise Tax Credits for 2008

This report provides an accounting of credit activity under the General Business Corporation Franchise Tax (Article 9-A). Section 109(a) of the Business Tax Reform and Rate Reduction Act of 1987 mandated an annual study of tax credits available to Article 9-A taxpayers. Credit activity attributable to banks, insurance companies, or utilities is not included because such entities are taxable under other Tax Law articles. In addition, it does not include credit activity attributable to partnerships, LLCs, Subchapter S corporations or sole proprietorships. Credits are provided to the owners of businesses conducting their activities in these forms under Article 22, the personal income tax.

The data used to generate this report come from an annual study based on the latest available data drawn from New York State corporation tax returns. These data pertain to corporations whose taxable year began between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008. This timeframe defines the tax liability year for each annual study.

This edition of the Analysis of Article 9-A General Business Corporation Franchise Tax Credits report provides detailed information for tax liability year 2008.
