Which Revision To Use Use this December 2019 revision of Form 8932 for tax years beginning in 2019 or later, until a later revision is issued. Use prior revisions of this form for earlier tax years. All revisions are available at www.irs.gov/ Form8932. Purpose of Form Use Form 8932 to claim the credit for eligible differential wage payments made to qualified employees after 2008. The credit is 20% of up to $20,000 of differential wage payments paid to each qualified employee during the tax year. The credit for employer differential wage payments is part of the general business credit. Partnerships, S corporations, cooperatives, estates, and trusts must file this form to claim the credit. All other taxpayers are not required to complete or file this form if their only source for this credit is a partnership, S corporation, cooperative, estate, or trust. Instead, they can report this credit directly on Form 3800, General Business Credit. For details, see section 45P and Notice 2010-15, 2010-6 I.R.B. 390, available at www.irs.gov/irb/2010-06_IRB#NOT-2010-15. Qualified Employee A qualified employee is a person who has been an employee for the 91-day period immediately preceding the period for which any differential wage payment is made. Differential Wage Payment To be considered a differential wage payment, the payment must meet both of the following requirements. • The payment is made to a qualified employee for any period during which the employee is performing service in the uniformed services of the United States while on active duty for a period of more than 30 days. • The payment represents all or a portion of the wages the employee would have received from the employer if the employee were performing services for the employer. Controlled Groups All persons treated as a single employer under subsection (b), (c), (m), or (o) of section 414 are treated as a single employer. Uniformed Services Uniformed services means the Armed Forces; the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard when engaged in active duty for training, inactive duty training, or fulltime National Guard duty; the commissioned corps of the Public Health Service; and any other category of persons designated by the President in time of war or national emergency. Coordination With Other Credits The amount of any research credit or orphan drug credit otherwise allowable for compensation paid to any employee is reduced by the credit for differential wage payments figured for that employee. For Paperwork Reduction Act Notice, see instructions. Cat. No. 37747W Form 8932 (Rev. 12-2019) Form 8932 (Rev. 12-2019) Disallowance for Failure To Comply With Employment or Reemployment Rights of Members of the Reserve Components of the Armed Forces of the United States No credit will be allowed to a taxpayer for: • Any tax year in which the taxpayer is under a final order, judgment, or other process issued or required by a district court of the United States under section 4323 of title 38 of the United States Code with respect to a violation of chapter 43 of title 38; and • The 2 succeeding tax years. Specific Instructions Line 1 Enter the total amount of eligible differential wage payments made to qualified employees during the tax year. Do not include more than $20,000 of payments for any employee. Line 2 Generally, you must reduce your deduction for salaries and wages by the amount on line 2, even if you cannot take the full credit this year because of the tax liability limit. If you capitalized any costs on which you figured the credit, reduce the amount capitalized by the credit attributable to these costs. Line 3 Enter total credits for employer differential wage payments from: • Schedule K-1 (Form 1065), Partner’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., box 15 (code P); • Schedule K-1 (Form 1120-S), Shareholder’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., box 13 (code P); • Schedule K-1 (Form 1041), Beneficiary’s Share of Income, Deductions, Credits, etc., box 13 (code Q); or • Form 1099-PATR, Taxable Distributions Received From Cooperatives, box 12 (box 11 for 2019), or other notice of credit allocation. Partnerships, S corporations, cooperatives, estates, and trusts report the above credits on line 3. All other filers figuring a separate credit on earlier lines also report the above credits on line 3. All others not using earlier lines to figure a separate credit can report the above credits directly on Form 3800, Part III, line 1w. Line 5 Cooperatives. A cooperative described in section 1381(a) must allocate to its patrons the credit in excess of its tax liability limit. Therefore, to figure the unused amount of the credit allocated to patrons, the cooperative must first figure its tax liability. While any excess is allocated to patrons, any credit recapture applies as if the cooperative had claimed the credit. Page 2 If the cooperative is subject to the passive activity rules, include on line 3 any Form 8932 credit from passive activities disallowed for prior years and carried forward to this year. Complete Form 8810, Corporate Passive Activity Loss and Credit Limitations, to determine the allowed credit that must be allocated to patrons. For details, see the Instructions for Form 8810. Estates and trusts. Allocate the credit for employer differential wage payments on line 4 between the estate or trust and the beneficiaries in the same proportion as income was allocated and enter the beneficiaries’ share on line 5. If the estate or trust is subject to the passive activity rules, include on line 3 any Form 8932 credit from passive activities disallowed for prior years and carried forward to this year. Complete Form 8582-CR, Passive Activity Credit Limitations, to determine the allowed credit that must be allocated between the estate or trust and the beneficiaries. For details, see the Instructions for Form 8582-CR. Paperwork Reduction Act Notice. We ask for the information on this form to carry out the Internal Revenue laws of the United States.

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.
