For income years beginning on or after January 1, 2016, groups of companies with common ownership that are engaged in a unitary business, where at least one member of the group is subject to the Corporation Business Tax, are required to file Form CT-1120CU. If a company is individually subject to the Corporation Business Tax and does not meet the criteria to file on a combined unitary basis, it must file Form CT-1120, Corporation Business Tax Return, and not Form CT-1120CU. What Constitutes a Unitary Business? A unitary business is characterized by significant flows of value evidenced by factors such as those described in Mobil Oil Corp. v. Vermont, 445 U.S. 425 (1980): functional integration, centralization of management, and economies of scale. These factors provide evidence of whether the business activities operate as an integrated whole or exhibit substantial mutual interdependence. Facts suggesting the presence of the factors mentioned above should be analyzed in combination for their cumulative effect and not in isolation. Without limiting the scope of what constitutes a unitary business, the presence of the following circumstances likely indicate the existence of a unitary business when conducted by two or more commonly owned companies: • Companies engaged in the same line or similar lines of business. • Companies engaged in different steps of a vertically structured business. • Companies controlled by strong centralized management. • Economies of scale that allow for mutual benefit to companies. • One company exercises significant control over another company or companies. • Companies engaged in intercompany business transactions, particularly relating to products, services, intellectual property, or financing that are significant to the businesses’ operations. What is Common Ownership? Common ownership means that more than fifty per cent of the voting control of each member of a combined group is directly or indirectly owned by a common owner or owners, either corporate or noncorporate, whether or not the owner or owners are members of the combined group. Whether voting control is indirectly owned shall be determined in accordance with Internal Revenue Code (I.R.C.) §318. Page 4 Which Companies Must Be Included in the Combined Group? The following steps describe how to identify companies that must be included in the combined group: Step 1 Identify all companies with common ownership that are engaged in a unitary business with a company that is subject to the Corporation Business Tax. Step 2 The group of companies identified in Step 1 should be modified to reflect the applicable group filing basis: water’sedge, worldwide, or affiliated group. The group filing basis dictates which companies are included in or excluded from the combined group. Information on each group filing basis is provided below. Step 3 Exclude from the modified group of companies identified in Step 2 those companies that are specifically exempt from the Corporation Business Tax, such as: • Insurance companies; • Companies exempt from federal corporation net income tax; • Companies subject to gross earnings taxes under Chapter 210 of the Connecticut General Statutes; • Companies all of whose properties in this state are operated by companies subject to gross earnings taxes under Chapter 210 of the Connecticut General Statutes; • Cooperative housing corporations; • Certain political organizations or associations; • Passive investment companies; and • Municipal utilities. Step 4 The group of companies remaining after Step 3 is the combined group. Prior to calculating the combined group’s tax on a combined unitary basis, the companies must be divided between taxable members and nontaxable members. Members of the combined group that are individually subject to the Corporation Business Tax (i.e., have Connecticut nexus) are the taxable members. All other members are the nontaxable members. Pass-Through Entities The businesses of pass-through entities are considered to be conducted by their direct or indirect members, but only to the extent of each member’s distributive share of the pass-through entity income. Accordingly, a member’s pro-rata share of the pass-through entity’s income, capital, and apportionment factors derived from the unitary business must be included in the calculation of the combined group’s tax. Portion of a Company’s Operations Engaged in a Unitary Business If only a portion of a company’s operations are part of a unitary business, only the income, capital, and apportionment factors related to said portion should be included in the calculation of the combined group’s tax. The remaining portion of a member’s business operations may be subject to tax separately from the combined group, if such member individually conducts business in Connecticut, or with another combined group, if it is engaged in a unitary business with a different combined group that conducts business in Connecticut. Page 5 Passive Holding Companies Passive holding companies that directly or indirectly control one or more operating companies engaged in a unitary business shall themselves be deemed to be engaged in a unitary business with such companies. Passive holding companies may be engaged in more than one unitary business. The income, capital, and apportionment factors of a passive holding company, or any other company, that is a member of more than one combined group shall be allocated on a consistent basis in accordance with combined unitary reporting principles. If a passive holding company is engaged in a unitary business with members of a combined group and with entities exempt from or otherwise not subject to the Corporation Business Tax, its income, capital, and apportionment must be allocated between the combined group and such entities. Selecting the Combined Group’s Filing Basis A combined group must select which filing basis it will use. A group’s filing basis affects which members are included in or excluded from the combined group. The filing bases are: • Water’s-Edge (default rule); • Worldwide (elective option); or • Affiliated Group (elective option). The water’s-edge basis is the default option. The worldwide basis and affiliated group basis are elective options. A worldwide or affiliated group election must be made on the original return filed by the due date or extended due date of such return. If an election is made to file on a worldwide or affiliated group basis, the combined group must continue to use the selected elective basis for the current year and the next ten income years. An election is made by checking either the worldwide or affiliated group box on Page 1 of Form CT-1120CU. If no election is made, the combined group should check the water’s-edge box and file on the default water’s-edge basis. Water’s-Edge Basis (default rule) Under the water’s-edge filing basis, the combined group includes those commonly owned companies engaged in a unitary business that: • Are incorporated in the United States or formed under the laws of the United States, excluding companies with 80% or more of their property and 80% or more of their payroll located outside of the United States during the income year; • Are incorporated outside of the United States, if 20% or more of their property and 20% or more of their payroll are located in the United States during the income year; or • Are incorporated in a tax haven, unless it is proven to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that such companies are incorporated in a tax haven for a legitimate business purpose. See Special Notice 2016(1), Combined Unitary Legislation, for more information on tax havens. Worldwide Basis (election) Under the worldwide election, the combined group includes all companies with common ownership that are engaged in a unitary business regardless of where they are incorporated. Page 6 Affiliated Group Basis (election) Under the affiliated group election, the combined group includes: • Companies included in a federal consolidated return with a taxable member (regardless of whether said companies are engaged in a unitary business); • Domestic (United States) companies that have more than 50% of their voting stock owned, directly or indirectly, by any member or members of a federal consolidated return that includes a taxable member (regardless of whether said companies are engaged in a unitary business); and • Companies incorporated in a tax haven that share common ownership with a taxable member and are engaged in a unitary business with such member, unless it is proven to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that such companies are incorporated in a tax haven for a legitimate business purpose. See Special Notice 2016(1), Combined Unitary Legislation, for more information on tax havens. Selecting a Designated Taxable Member The combined group must select a designated taxable member. The designated taxable member must be a taxable member (i.e., have Connecticut nexus). The designated taxable member is the combined group member that files the return, makes payments and performs other acts on behalf of the combined group. If the common parent is a taxable member in the combined group, it must be the designated taxable member. Otherwise, any taxable member may be selected. If this is the first year that a combined group is filing a Form CT-1120CU, the group will select the designated taxable member by reporting the member as the named filer on Page 1 of Form CT-1120CU (in the box Name of Connecticut designated taxable member). No other form is required to select the designated taxable member. The designated taxable member should continue to file, pay and act on behalf of the combined group in future years. Even though the designated taxable member is responsible for filing and paying on behalf of the combined group, each taxable member is jointly and severally liable for the tax due from the combined group. How to Determine the Combined Group’s Income Year If two or more members of the combined group file a federal consolidated return, the combined group’s income year is the same as it is for federal consolidated return purposes. Otherwise, the combined group’s income year is the designated taxable member’s income year. If a member has a different income year than the combined group’s income year, it should report the amounts from its income year ending during the combined group’s income year in the combined group’s return. Amounts from income years beginning before January 1, 2016 should be reported on the applicable 2015 Corporation Business Tax return. When to File Form CT-1120CU, Combined Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return, must be filed on or before the first day of the month following the due date of the corresponding federal income tax return for the income year (May 1st for calendar year taxpayers). If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the return is considered timely if filed on the next business day. Page 7 Extension Requests To request an extension of time to file Form CT-1120CU, file Form CT-1120 EXT, Application for Extension of Time to File Corporation Business Tax Return, no later than the due date of the return. Form CT-1120 EXT must be filed and paid electronically. Visit www.ct.gov/TSC to file the extension request electronically. Extensions also may be filed using the Fed/State Modernized e-File (MeF) program. Check with your software provider to see if the software you use supports filing of extensions. Combined groups that timely file an extension request will automatically receive a six-month extension to file (a combined group with a June 30th year end will receive a seven month extension). Special Rule for 2016: If any combined group member is granted an extension of time to file, the extension is valid for the entire combined group. Due Date Chart Year End Original Due Date Extended Due Date Anything except June 30 1st day of 5th month after year end 1st day of 11th month after year end June 30 1st day of 4th month after year end 1st day of 11th month after year end Form CT-1120 EXT extends only the time to file the tax return. It does not extend the time to pay the tax. Interest on any tax not paid by the original due date is computed at 1% per month or fraction of a month until the tax is paid in full. How to File File Electronically You are required to file Form CT-1120CU and pay the tax due electronically. Form CT-1120CU can be filed electronically using the MeF program using 3rd party software. Check with your current software provider to verify that they provide support for Form CT-1120CU. The DRS Taxpayer Service Center (TSC) does not support filing of Form CT-1120CU. The TSC can be used to make electronic Form CT-1120CU Estimated Payments, Extension Payments, and balance due payments. If you can show that filing and paying electronically creates an undue hardship, the Commissioner of Revenue Services may grant a one-year waiver of the electronic filing and payment requirement. Request a waiver by completing Form DRS-EWVR, Electronic Filing and Payment Waiver Request, no fewer than 30 days before the due date of your first electronic filing and payment. See Policy Statement 2011(3), Requests for Waiver of Electronic Filing and Electronic Payment Requirements. Page 8 Rejected Electronic Returns If you attempt to file Form CT-1120CU electronically and the return is rejected due to errors (either for errors on Form CT-1120CU or the corresponding federal return), you should correct the errors and re-submit the return electronically. If you cannot correct the errors, you should file a paper copy of Form CT-1120CU by mail on or before the 5th business day after the return is due. Attach a copy of the initial notice of the electronic return rejection as the second page of the return. Payments associated with a rejected electronic return still must be made electronically and timely. See How to Pay, below, for electronic payment options. Mail returns to: Department of Revenue Services State of Connecticut PO Box 150406 Hartford CT 06115-0406 Do not complete Form DRS-EWVR to request a waiver from the electronic filing requirement if you are filing by paper because your electronic Form CT-1120CU has been rejected due to errors that cannot be corrected. How to Pay All Corporation Business Tax payments (e.g., estimates, extension payments, and return payments) are required to be paid electronically. Non-electronic payments made without an electronic payment waiver will be subject to penalty. There are multiple options to pay electronically: • Taxpayer Service Center (TSC): Visit the TSC at www.ct.gov/TSC and select Business. See Information Publication 2014(15), Filing and Paying Connecticut Taxes Electronically. • Modernized e-File (MeF): Check with your current software provider to determine if this option is available. • ACH Credit: ACH credit method users should consult with their banking institution for guidelines to ensure that payment is received timely. (Taxpayers must pre-register with the DRS Electronic Commerce Unit (ECU) prior to using this option). The taxpayer initiates an electronic payment through their banking institution. This payment must be sent in the ACH standard CCD+TXP format. For detailed information and a list of FAQ’s, review Informational Publication 2014(15), Paying Connecticut Taxes by Electronic Funds Transfer. • Pay by Credit Card or Debit Card: You may elect to pay your tax liability using a credit card (American Express®, Discover®, MasterCard®, or VISA®) or comparable debit card. A convenience fee will be charged by the service provider. You will be informed of the amount of the fee and you may elect to cancel the transaction. At the end of the transaction you will be given a confirmation number for your records. • There are three ways to pay by credit card or comparable debit card: 1. Log in to your account in the TSC and select Make Payment by Credit Card; 2. Visit: www.officialpayments.com and select State Payments; or 3. Call Official Payments Corporation at 1-800-487-4567 to speak with an agent. Your payment will be effective on the date you make the charge. Page 9 File and Pay by Mail If DRS has granted you a waiver from the electronic filing and payment requirements, attach a check, if a payment is due, to the paper return and mail it to the appropriate address listed below. Make the check payable to Commissioner of Revenue Services. To ensure payment is applied to your account, write “2016 Form CT-1120CU” and the Connecticut Tax Registration Number of the designated taxable member on the front of the check. Sign your check and paper clip it to your return. Do not send cash. DRS may submit your check to your bank electronically. Mail return without payment to: Department of Revenue Services State of Connecticut PO Box 150406 Hartford CT 06115-0406 Mail return with payment to: Department of Revenue Services State of Connecticut PO Box 2974 Hartford CT 06104-2974 Estimated Tax Payments A combined group whose estimated current year tax exceeds $1,000 must make its required annual payment in four estimated payment installments. All Corporation Business Tax estimated payments must be filed and paid electronically. In general, estimated payments should be made by the designated taxable member. For more information on how to make estimated payments, see How to Pay, on Page 9. Filings and payments made without a waiver from the electronic filing and payment requirement will be subject to penalty. To apply for a waiver from the electronic filing and payment requirement, complete Form DRS-EWVR. The amount of each estimated payment is calculated based upon the group’s required annual payment. In general, the required annual payment is the lesser of: • 90% of the tax due, after application of credits, for the current income year; and • 100% of the tax due, before application of credits for the preceding income year. For income years beginning in 2017 and thereafter, the second prong of the required annual payment will be based upon the total tax due from all members of the combined group that filed with the designated taxable member in the prior year. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the return is considered timely if filed on the next business day. The estimated tax due date table indicates the amount due for each installment under the regular installment method. For more information regarding estimated Corporation Business Tax payments, including information regarding the annualized installment method, see Informational Publication 2016(16), 2016 Q & A on Estimated Corporation Business Tax and Worksheet CT-1120AE. Estimated Tax Payments Estimated Tax Due Dates Required Payment Amounts The estimated payments for the income year are the lesser of: First ESA - Fifteenth day of the third month of the income year 30% of prior year tax (including surtax) without regard to credits or 27% of current year tax (including surtax) Second ESB - Fifteenth day of the sixth month of the income year * 70% of prior year tax (including surtax) without regard to credits or 63% of current year tax (including surtax) Third ESC - Fifteenth day of the ninth month of the income year * 80% of prior year tax (including surtax) without regard to credits or 72% of current year tax (including surtax) Fourth ESD - Fifteenth day of the twelfth month of the income year * 100% of prior year tax (including surtax) without regard to credits or 90% of current year tax (including surtax) * Taking into account all prior estimated tax payments made for this year. Page 10 Amended Returns Any combined group that fails to include items of income or deduction or makes any other error on a return must file an amended combined return on Form CT-1120CU that applies to the tax year being amended and check the Amended box. Electronic filing of amended returns is not available. If a member of the combined group has filed an amended federal return with the IRS and the amendment affects the combined group’s Connecticut tax return, then within 90 days of the IRS final determination on that amended federal return, the corporation must file an amended Connecticut Corporation Business Tax return and attach a copy of federal Form 1120X, Amended U.S. Corporation Income Tax return. Corrections to taxable income made by the IRS must be reported to the Commissioner of Revenue Services on or before 90 days after the final determination of the change. All federal adjustments must be reported on an amended return. An extension request for reporting federal audit changes may be submitted in writing to the Commissioner stating the reason additional time is required. If the adjustment on a Connecticut amended return is not related to an adjustment made on a federal amended return (e.g. an adjustment to Connecticut net income, Connecticut minimum tax base, a Connecticut apportionment factor, a Connecticut net operating loss, or a Connecticut Corporation Business Tax credit), explain the adjustment in detail and attach all appropriate supporting forms and schedules. Interest and Penalties Interest Interest is computed at 1% per month or fraction of a month on the underpayment of tax from the original due date of the return through the date of payment. Interest due on the underpayment of estimated tax is computed using Form CT-1120I, Computation of Interest Due on Underpayment of Estimated Tax. Interest on underpayment or late payment of tax cannot be waived. Late Payment Penalties The following penalties will apply if a required electronic payment is remitted late: • 2% of the required tax due for electronic payments not more than five days late; • 5% of the required electronic payments more than five days late, but not more than 15 days late; and • 10% of the required electronic payments more than 15 days late. If a request for a filing extension has been granted, a combined group may avoid a penalty for failure to pay the full amount due by the original due date if it pays: • At least 90% of the tax shown to be due on the return on or before the original due date of the return; and • The balance due with the filing of Form CT-1120CU on or before the extended due date. Penalties for Failing to Pay Electronically The following graduated penalty amounts will apply if a payment is not made electronically: • First offense – 10% penalty on the amount of the tax payment, but not more than $2,500; • Second offense – 10% penalty, but not more than $10,000; and • Third and subsequent offenses – 10% penalty. Recordkeeping Keep a copy of the tax return, worksheets, and records of all items appearing on the return until the statute of limitations expires for that return. Usually, this is three years from the date the return was due or filed, whichever is later. However, if any combined group member reports a net operating loss or credit carryforward or carryback, the statute of limitations may expire later. Any ancillary documentation that cannot be transmitted with the electronically filed return should be retained by the taxpayer and supplied to DRS only upon request. Page 11 Foreign (Non-United States) Companies For any member not incorporated in the United States, not included in a consolidated federal corporate income tax return and not required to file its own federal corporate income tax return, the income to be included in the combined group’s net income shall be determined from a profit and loss statement. The statement shall be prepared for each foreign branch or company in the currency in which the books of account of the branch or company are regularly maintained. The statement must be adjusted to conform it to the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for the presentation of such statements and further adjusted to take into account any book-tax differences required by federal or Connecticut law. The profit and loss statement of each member of the combined group and the related apportionment factors, whether United States or foreign, shall be translated from the currency in which the company maintains its books and records into United States dollars on any reasonable basis consistently applied on a year-to-year or entity-by-entity basis. In lieu of these procedures and subject to the determination of the Commissioner that the income to be reported reasonably approximates income as determined under the Corporation Business Tax, income may be determined on any reasonable basis consistently applied on a year-to-year or entity-by-entity basis. Page 12 Form CT-1120CU - Line Instructions Purpose Use Form CT-1120CU, Combined Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return, to calculate and report your Corporation Business Tax on a combined unitary basis. Group Income Year Enter the beginning and ending dates for the combined group’s income year. See How to Determine the Combined Group’s Income Year on Page 7. Designated Taxable Member Information Enter the designated taxable member’s name, mailing address, Connecticut tax registration number, and federal employer identification number. If this is the first year that the combined group is filing a Form CT-1120CU, select the designated taxable member by reporting the member as the named filer on Page 1 of Form CT-1120CU. No other form is required to select the designated taxable member. The designated taxable member should continue to file, pay and act on behalf of the combined group in future years. See Selecting a Designated Taxable Member on Page 7. Address Change To make any changes to the designated taxable member’s address, clearly print the new information, check the Address change box, and separately file Form CT-8822C, Corporation Business Tax Change of Address. Combined Unitary Return Status • First year filers: Check the Initial Return box. • If this is the last year that the combined group is filing a combined unitary return, check the Final box. • If the combined group is filing for a short period, check the Short Period box. • If the combined group is filing an amended return, check the Amended box Exchange of Research and Development Tax Credits (See new procedures on Page 14.) Check the Yes box and enter the total amount of credit refund requested if any member is exchanging Research and Development tax credits available under Conn. Gen. Stat. §§12-217j or 12-217n. These credits may be exchanged for a credit refund equal to 65% of the value of the credit, subject to certain limitations. A taxpayer may not receive a credit refund of more than $1.5 million in any one income year. To request a Research and Development tax credit refund: • Check the Yes box on Form CT-1120CU, Line 3; • Enter the total amount of credit refund requested by all combined group members on Form CT-1120CU, Line 3; and • At the same time as filing Form CT-1120CU, file Form CT-1120 XCH, Application for Exchange of Research and Development or Research and Experimental Tax Credits by a Qualified Small Business, separately. See New Research Credit Refund Application Procedure for 2016, on Page 14. Page 13 Because Form CT-1120 XCH cannot be filed electronically, it must be filed separately from Form CT-1120CU. The following chart describes the steps to submit Form CT-1120 XCH. Eligibility In order to be eligible for a research and development credit refund, a taxpayer must have no Corporation Business Tax liability. For credit exchange purposes, payment of the minimum base tax (sometimes referred to as the capital base tax) in a year that the taxpayer reports no net income, or payment of $250 for the minimum base tax shall not be considered a liability. A company included in a combined group that files as part of Form CT-1120CU must separately determine if it is eligible to exchange credits. This includes a separate determination as to whether the company claiming the credit refund has no tax liability for purposes of the eligibility requirements of this credit exchange. If other requirements are satisfied, a company that files as part of a combined group is eligible to exchange credits if the group pays tax on the minimum tax base and: • The company’s apportioned amount of the combined group’s net income is zero or negative (as reported on Form CT-1120CU-NI, Part III, Line 12), regardless of its portion of the minimum tax base; or • The company’s portion of the minimum tax base is equal to $250 (as reported on Form CT-1120CU, Part I, Line 6b). Page 14 Annualizing Estimated Payments Check the corresponding box if the combined group is using the annualized installment method to calculate its estimated tax payments. Complete Form CT-1120I, Computation of Interest Due on Underpayment of Estimated Tax, and attach it to Form CT-1120CU. See Informational Publication 2016(16), 2016 Q & A on Estimated Corporation Business Tax and Worksheet CT-1120AE. Filing Method Check the corresponding box to report the group’s filing basis. The worldwide basis and affiliated group basis are elective options. An election to file on either elective basis is made by checking the appropriate box on Page 1 of Form CT-1120CU. If no election is made, the combined group should check the water’s-edge box. A worldwide or affiliated group election must be made on the original return filed by the due date or extended due date of such return. If an election is made, the combined group must continue to use the selected elective basis for the current year and the next ten income years. Schedule of Members Included in the Combined Unitary Return Only submit this schedule if you are filing the return by paper. List all taxable members first followed by nontaxable members. Continue using the assigned member number when completing all CT-1120CU forms and schedules. Supplemental Attachment For combined groups with more than 50 members, attach copies of the Schedule of Members Included in the Combined Unitary Return, as needed, using the same format. Continue the member number sequence on additional sheets. Do not assign the same member number to multiple companies. In the Taxable column, enter Y for taxable members and N for nontaxable members. Enter the member’s Connecticut Tax Registration Number (if applicable) followed by its Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). Enter NoFederalID if the member does not have an FEIN. At the bottom of the schedule, enter the total number of members in this combined unitary return in the left hand box followed by the total number of taxable members in the right hand box.

Tax Credit Reporting Requirements: Complete and attach a separate Form CT-1120K for each member that has a credit carryforward from a prior year or is claiming, applying, or sharing a business tax credit in the current year. How to Apply Tax Credits After each taxable member’s tax liability has been determined, credits, if available, may be used to offset the tax due. Each taxable member is individually subject to the limitations imposed by Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-217zz, which generally provides that credits may generally offset no more than 50.01% of each taxable member’s tax. For 2016, Research and Development, Research and Experimental Expenditures, and Urban and Industrial Site Reinvestment tax credits that remain after the application of the 50.01% limitation may be further used, provided the total of all tax credits does not exceed 55% of the tax liability. See Form CT-1120K, Business Tax Credit Summary. Credits may be deducted from each taxable member’s portion of the combined group’s tax as follows: • Credits earned in the current year by a taxable member of the combined group may be utilized by any taxable member in the group. • Unused credits earned by a combined group member in a prior year in which a combined unitary tax return was filed may be utilized by the member that earned the credit or by any member that was included in the combined group in the year the tax credit was earned (regardless of whether or not the member was a taxable member or nontaxable member in such prior year). • Unused credits earned by a taxable member in a prior year in which the taxable member filed a separate Corporation Business Tax return may be utilized only by the member that earned the credit. • Unused credits earned by a combined group member in a year that it was included in a group that filed a Form CT-1120CR, Combined Corporation Business Tax Return, or a Form CT-1120U, Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return, may be used by the member that earned the credit or any other combined group member that was included in the Form CT-1120CR or Form CT-1120U in the year the credit was earned. The credit ordering rules of Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-217aa continue to apply. Any credits available to a taxable member, including credits it earned and credits earned by other members that it is allowed to utilize, must be utilized in accordance with such ordering rules. See Special Notice 2016(1), Combined Unitary Legislation.

This authorization applies only to the individual whose signature appears in the paid preparer’s signature section of the combined unitary return. It does not apply to the firm, if any, shown in that section. If the Yes box is checked, the combined group is authorizing DRS to contact the paid preparer to answer any questions that may arise during the processing of the 2016 Combined Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return. The combined group is also authorizing the paid preparer to: • Give DRS any information that is missing from the Combined Unitary return; • Call DRS for information about the processing of the unitary group’s return or the status of the combined group’s refund or payment; and • Respond to certain DRS notices that the combined group may have shared with the preparer regarding math errors, offsets, and return preparation.

Page 20 Form CT-1120CU-MI Combined Group Member Information Purpose Use Form CT-1120CU-MI to provide certain member information necessary to complete and process Form CT-1120CU, Combined Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return. General Information Complete and attach Form CT-1120CU-MI as part of Form CT-1120CU. Each column provides information on each taxable and nontaxable member. A taxable member means a combined group member that is subject to the Connecticut Corporation Business Tax (i.e., a member with nexus in Connecticut). A nontaxable member means a combined group member that is not subject to the Connecticut Corporation Business Tax (i.e., it does not have nexus with Connecticut). Companies exempt from the Corporation Business Tax are not included in the combined unitary return. Part I – Taxable and nontaxable members included in the combined unitary return For each taxable and nontaxable member included in Form CT-1120CU, enter the identifying number assigned to each member beginning with “1” and continuing in ascending order using whole numbers. These unique identifying numbers remain with the particular member assigned throughout the combined unitary series of tax returns. If a paper Form CT-1120CU is being filed, the member numbers listed on Page 2 of that form must be consistent with the member numbers assigned on Form CT-1120CU-MI. Line 1 Enter the name of each taxable and nontaxable member. Line 2 Enter the Connecticut tax registration number for each taxable member.

Line 9 Check the YES box if this is a taxable member that conducts business in Connecticut, but is protected from taxation on its net income by Public Law 86-272. Otherwise, check NO. Taxable members that are protected by Public Law 86-272 are treated as a nontaxable member for net income base purposes, but as a taxable member for all other purposes.

If only a portion of a member’s operations are included, only the income, capital and apportionment factors related to that portion should be included in the calculation of the combined group’s tax. Line 14 Check YES if the member will file a separate Form CT-1120, Corporation Business Tax Return, to report the tax due from business operations that are not included in this combined unitary return. Line 15 Check YES if the member will file as part of a different combined group on a different Form CT-1120CU to report tax due from business operations that are not included in this combined unitary return. Line 16 If the member checked YES on Line 15, indicate the Connecticut tax registration number of the designated taxable member of the different combined group.

Explain why these companies are not included. Page 23 Form CT-1120CU-NI Tax on Combined Group Net Income Purpose Use Form CT-1120CU-NI to calculate the combined group’s tax on the net income base. Complete and attach Form CT-1120CU-NI to Form CT-1120CU. Combined groups are subject to tax on the greater of their net income base or their minimum tax base (sometimes referred to as the capital base). See Special Notice 2016(1), Combined Unitary Legislation. General Information - How to Calculate the Combined Group’s Net Income A combined group’s net income is the aggregate net income or loss of each taxable member and nontaxable member, derived from a unitary business, subject to the following: • Each member calculates its net income derived from a unitary business as if it were filing a Corporation Business Tax return on a stand alone basis, subject to certain modifications described herein. • Dividends paid from one member to another are eliminated from the income of the recipient. • The principles set forth in the federal consolidated return regulations promulgated under I.R.C. §1502 shall apply to the extent consistent with the Connecticut combined group membership and combined unitary reporting principles. Income deferred in accordance with such principles is restored to the seller’s income if the object of the transaction is resold to an entity not in the combined group or resold to or converted by a combined group member for use outside of the unitary business. The income is also restored to the seller’s income if the buyer and seller are no longer part of the same combined group. The restored income is included in the seller’s net income as if it were earned immediately prior to the event that caused its restoration. • The charitable contribution limitation is calculated on a combined group’s net income, prior to the charitable contribution deduction. To the extent that a member’s charitable contribution deduction is limited, it may be carried forward by the member and utilized in a future year. To the extent that the group’s charitable contribution deduction is limited, each member shall deduct an amount equal to its pro rata share of the group’s allowable deduction. Charitable contribution carryforwards are treated as if they were charitable contributions made in the subsequent year. These carryforwards may be used by the member in a combined unitary tax return or, if it no longer files in a combined unitary tax return in the future year, a separate return. • Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets, property described in I.R.C. §1231(a)(3), and property subject to an involuntary conversion are removed from the separate member’s net income and aggregated at the group level. The net gain or loss is apportioned to the taxable members in accordance with the net income apportionment provisions. Apportioned net losses are carried forward by each taxable member separately. • No deductions are allowed for expenses that are attributable to income of any member of the combined group, which income is prohibited from Connecticut taxation under the United States Constitution or other federal law. Page 24 Part I – Computation of Adjusted Federal Taxable Income Complete a column for each taxable and nontaxable member. If there are more than six members in the combined group, attach copies of Page 2 as needed using the same format. Lines 1 through 28 For each member of the combined group, enter the appropriate amounts that were reported on its federal Form 1120 (or that would have been reported if it filed such a return). Use the Eliminations column to eliminate any transactions between members of the combined group. Use the Adjustments column to adjust any line to reflect the combined unitary basis of reporting. For information on adjustments that are required to be made for combined unitary purposes, see How to Calculate the Combined Group’s Net Income, on Page 24. Also see Special Notice 2016(1), Combined Unitary Legislation. Lines 29, 30, and 31 The group’s capital gain or loss is determined at the group level. Use Line 29 and Line 30 to remove any capital gains or losses prior to arriving at adjusted federal taxable income. Gains and losses from the sale or exchange of capital assets, property described in I.R.C. §1231(a)(3), and property subject to an involuntary conversion are aggregated at the group level. The aggregate net gain or loss is then apportioned by the taxable members in accordance with the net income apportionment provisions. Apportioned net losses are carried forward by each taxable member separately. See the instructions to Part III, Line 7. Part II – Computation of Combined Group Net Income Report Connecticut specific modifications at the combined group level. Line 1 Enter the amount from Part I, Line 31, Combined Group Total column. Line 2 Enter all interest income exempt from federal taxation.

Line 12 Enter the amount of exceptions to the add back of interest expenses paid by a combined group member to a related member that is not included in the combined group. Line 13 Enter the amount of exceptions to the add back of intangible expenses paid by a combined group member to a related member that is not included in the combined group.

Line 15 Enter any other income deduction. Attach an explanation. Line 16 Enter the sum of Lines 10 through 15. Line 17 Subtract Line 16 from Line 9. Page 26 Part III – Tax on Combined Group Net Income Complete a column for each taxable member. If there are more than eight taxable members in the combined group, attach copies of Page 5, as needed, using the same format. Do not complete columns for nontaxable members. Line 1 Enter the amount from Part II, Line 17. Line 2 Enter the amount of net income (loss) included in Line 1 that is subject to special apportionment rules. Net income derived from the following activities must be separately apportioned from other net income: Activity Use Form Carrying of passengers or property for hire ..............................................

Form CT-1120A-IRIC Securities brokerage services .................................................................. Form CT-1120A-SBC Broadcasting and programming production services ............................... Form CT-1120A-BPE Credit card activities by financial service companies ............................... Form CT-1120A-CCA Net income that is subject to these special apportionment rules should be removed from the combined group’s net income and separately apportioned on the forms listed above. Receipts from the activities whose net income is subject to separate apportionment should be removed from the calculation of the standard apportionment calculation on Form CT-1120A-CU, Schedule Q. Line 3 Subtract Line 2 from Line 1. Line 4 Enter the apportionment fraction for each respective taxable member that is reported on Form CT-1120A-CU, Schedule Q, Line 10. Line 5 Multiple Line 3 by Line 4 in each column. Line 6 Enter the amount of net income (loss) reported on Line 2 that is separately apportioned by a taxable member to Connecticut. Use the appropriate special apportionment form to calculate the separately apportioned net income (loss). Line 7 Enter the amount of capital gains apportioned to Connecticut by each respective taxable member. Use the Gains Adjustment worksheet to calculate this amount. Line 8 Add Lines 5, 6, and 7 in each column. Line 9 Add the amounts in each column on Line 8. Page 27 Line 10 Enter the net operating loss (NOL) deduction for each respective taxable member. Do not exceed 50% of Line 8. How to Apply NOLs After apportionment, NOLs are deducted from each taxable member’s portion of the combined group’s net income in accordance with the following: • NOLs incurred by a taxable member in a year when it filed a separate Corporation Business Tax return may be used only to reduce its apportioned amount of the combined group’s net income. • NOLs incurred by a group that filed a Form CT-1120CR, Combined Corporation Business Tax Return, or a Form CT-1120U, Unitary Corporation Business Tax Return, in an income year prior to 2016 may be used to reduce the apportioned amount of the combined group’s net income of any taxable member that was included in the Form CT-1120CR or Form CT-1120U in the loss year. Only the combined NOLs from a Form CT-1120CR, and not separate company NOLs from such a return that were available for preference tax purposes under Conn. Gen. Stat. §12-223f, may be utilized. • NOLs incurred by a taxable member in a year in which it filed a combined unitary tax return as required in the Unitary Legislation may be used by the taxable member and/or may be shared with other members that were included in the combined group in the year of the loss (regardless of whether the member was a taxable member or nontaxable member in the loss year). A taxable member may not claim an NOL deduction that exce

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.
