This credit can be used by taxpayers against the net tax in an amount equal to 55% of the fair market value of a qualified contribution that has been approved for acceptance by the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB). The WCB implemented a program for the protection of wildlife habitat, open space, and agricultural lands. Under this program, property can be contributed to the state, any local government, or to any nonprofit organization designated by a local government, based on specified criteria. The credit is allowed against net tax, in an amount equal to 55% of the fair market value of any qualified contribution made by the taxpayer to the state, any local government, or any designated nonprofit organization. A Purpose Use form FTB 3503, Natural Heritage Preservation Credit, to figure the amount of the credit. Also, use this form to claim pass-through credits received from S corporations, estates, trusts, partnerships, or limited liability companies (LLCs) classified as partnerships. S corporations, estates, trusts, partnerships, and LLCs classified as partnerships should complete form FTB 3503 to figure the amount of credit to pass through to shareholders, beneficiaries, partners, or members. Attach this form to Form 100S, California S Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return; Form 541, California Fiduciary Income Tax Return; Form 565, Partnership Return of Income; or Form 568, Limited Liability Company Return of Income. Show the pass-through credit for each shareholder, beneficiary, partner, or member on Schedule K-1 (100S, 541, 565, or 568), Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc. For Privacy Notice, get FTB 1131 ENG/SP. C Description Qualifications To qualify for this credit: • Make a contribution of property as defined in Section 37002 of the Public Resources Code. • The WCB must approve the contribution for acceptance. • Attach completed form FTB 3503 to your California tax return. For more information regarding qualified contributions, contact the WCB at 916.445.8448, or go to wcb.ca.gov. The credit of any qualified contribution passes through to shareholders, beneficiaries, partners, or members of the pass-through entity in accordance with their pro-rata interest in the entity as of the date of the qualified contribution. The term “pass-through entity” means any S corporation, partnership, or LLC treated as a partnership. 7241193 FTB 3503  2019  Side 1 D Limitations No credit will be allowed unless you received a certificate from the WCB, which shows that your qualified contribution was approved for acceptance. You must retain the certificate and make it available to the Franchise Tax Board upon request. S corporations may claim only 1/3 of the credit against the 1.5% entity-level tax (3.5% for financial S corporations). The remaining 2/3 must be disregarded and may not be used as a carryover. In addition, S corporations may pass through 100% of the credit to their shareholders. If a C corporation had unused credit carryovers when it elected S corporation status, the carryovers were reduced to 1/3 and transferred to the S corporation. The remaining 2/3 were disregarded. The allowable carryovers may be used to offset the 1.5% tax on net income in accordance with the respective carryover rules. These C corporation carryovers may not be passed through to shareholders. For more information, get Schedule C (100S), S Corporation Tax Credits. If a taxpayer owns an interest in a disregarded business entity [a single member limited liability company (SMLLC) not recognized by California, and for tax purposes is treated as a sole proprietorship owned by an individual or a branch owned by a corporation], the credit amount received from the disregarded entity that can be utilized is limited to the difference between the taxpayer’s regular tax figured with the income of the disregarded entity, and the taxpayer’s regular tax figured without the income of the disregarded entity. For more information on SMLLC, get Form 568, Limited Liability Company Tax Booklet. If the disregarded entity reports a loss, the taxpayer may not claim the credit this year but can carry over the credit amount received from the disregarded entity to the next succeeding taxable year. This credit cannot reduce the regular tax below the minimum franchise tax (corporations and S corporations), annual tax (limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, and LLCs classified as a partnership), the alternative minimum tax (corporations, exempt organizations, individuals, and fiduciaries), the built-in gains tax (S corporations), or the excess net passive income tax (S corporations). This credit can reduce regular tax below Tentative Minimum Tax (TMT). Get Schedule P (100, 100W, 540, 540NR, or 541), Alternative Minimum Tax and Credit Limitations, for more information. This credit is in lieu of any other state tax credit or deduction that the taxpayer would otherwise be allowed for the contributed property or interest therein. This credit is not refundable. E Assignment of Credits Assigned Credits to Affiliated Corporations – Credit earned by members of a combined reporting group may be assigned to an affiliated corporation that is an eligible member of the same combined reporting group. A credit assigned may only be claimed by the affiliated corporation against its tax liability. For more information, get form FTB 3544, Assignment of Credit, or go to ftb.ca.gov and search for credit assignment. F Carryover If the available credit exceeds the current year tax liability, the unused credit may be carried over. For credits generated before January 1, 2015, the credit may be carried over for eight years or until the credit is exhausted. For credits generated on or after January 1, 2015, the credit carryover period has been extended to 15 years or until exhausted, whichever occurs first. Apply the carryover to the earliest taxable year possible. This credit cannot be carried back and applied against a prior year’s tax.

Form 3503 is a California 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.
