Holding Company Income Tax Combined Report
Income tax - combined reporting. Two or more corporations controlled by the same interests are required to file a combined report in certain instances for apportioning income for Colorado income tax purposes. The Colorado court of appeals recently interpreted existing law to exclude all holding companies purportedly without property or payroll from combined reports. The act clarifies that only corporations with property and payroll located outside the United States are excluded from a combined report. The act further clarifies when the treatment of the activities of a partnership is treated as the activity of a member of an affiliated group of corporations. The act requires the department of revenue to convene a stakeholder working group to discuss and report on issues related to combined tax reporting.
