General Instructions Effective for tax years beginning after December 31, 2013, a taxpayer may claim a credit against its Alaska corporate income tax for qualified oil and gas service industry expenditures under AS 43.20.049. The amount of credit is 10% of qualified expenditures, up to a maximum of $10,000,000 per tax year. Line 1: Enter the total amount of qualified expenditures incurred in Alaska in this tax year. Expenditures that qualify for this credit are those incurred in Alaska which are directly attributable to the in-state manufacture or modification of tangible personal property with a useful life of three years or more and used to explore, develop or produce oil or gas. Qualifying expenditures include services and supplies used to manufacture or modify tangible personal property. Qualifying expenditures do not include components or equipment used in the process of the manufacturing or modification, and do not include expenditures for facilities. If the credit is not fully utilized, it may be carried forward for five years. If a portion of the credit is carried forward to a subsequent year, and additional qualified expenditures are made in that subsequent year, the taxpayer may claim a maximum of $10,000,000 in that subsequent year. If the expenditure is incurred by an entity taxed as a partnership, the credit is reported on Form 6900 Alaska Partnership Return, and may be claimed by a corporate partner to offset the Alaska corporate tax of that partner. Line 2: Enter on line 2 the lesser of line 1 or $100,000,000. This is the amount of expenditures that are the basis of any potential credit. The taxpayer may not claim a deduction when calculating Alaska corporate net income tax for an expenditure that is the basis of a service industry credit. The amount on line 2 must be apportioned, if appropriate, and added back to Alaska taxable income. Enter the amount from line 2 on the appropriate schedule as follows: Form 6000 Form 6100 Form 6150 Schedule H, line 4e Schedule G, line 3h Schedule G, line 3h or Schedule H, line 4e If the expenditure is incurred by an entity taxed as a partnership, the expense add-back is reported on Form 6900 Alaska Partnership Return on Schedule A, line 3. See Form 6900 with associated instructions. Line 3: Multiply line 2 by 10%. This is the tentative credit generated in this tax year. 0405-6327 Rev 01/01/17

Form 6327 is an Alaska Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
