Extensions are valid for six months, with the exception of extensions for taxpayers with a June 30 tax year end, which are valid for seven months. Only one extension may be granted per tax year. Payment of Tax You must pay the amount of tax due, as shown on Line 17 of the return, and either file your return or extension of time by the original due date. Make payments in U.S. funds.

Attach other supporting schedules if requested in these instructions. Do not detach the coupon located at the bottom of the first page of your Florida Form F-1120 or your account may not be properly credited.

Rounding Off to Whole-Dollar Amounts Whole-dollar amounts may be entered on the return and accompanying schedules. To round off dollar amounts, drop amounts less than 50 cents to the next lowest dollar and increase amounts from 50 cents to 99 cents to the next highest dollar. If you use this method on the federal return, you must use it on the Florida return. F-1120N R. 01/19 Page 4 of 16 Federal Employer Identification Number If you do not have an FEIN, obtain one from the Internal Revenue Service. You can: • Apply online at irs.gov • Apply by mail with IRS Form SS-4. To obtain this form, download or order it from irs.gov or call 800-829-3676. To Amend a Return You must complete a Florida Form F-1120X to amend your Florida corporate income tax return if: • You file an amended federal return. • A redetermination of federal income is made (for example, through an audit adjustment), and • The adjustments would affect net income subject to the Florida corporate income/franchise tax. Go to floridarevenue.com/forms for Florida Form F-1120X with instructions. Estimated Tax (Florida Form F-1120ES) Who Must Make Estimated Tax Payments? If you expect the amount of your income tax liability for the year to be more than $2,500, you must make a declaration of estimated tax for the taxable year. Use Florida Form F-1120ES, Declaration/Installment of Florida Estimated Income/Franchise Tax to declare and pay estimated tax. To determine if a declaration and payment of estimated tax is required, complete the Estimated Tax Worksheet on page 6 of the Florida Form F-1120. Due Dates for Declaration and Payment Make your estimated tax payments in four equal installments. For calendar year filers with a tax year beginning on or after January 1, 2017, payments are due on May 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31. To obtain Florida Form F-1120ES, see "Contact Us" on page 16. The Department does not send reminder notices for estimated tax installments. Do not annualize your payments. For a calendar of filing due dates for Florida corporate income tax returns go to the Department’s website at floridarevenue.com/taxes/cit/duedates. To pay estimated tax, go to the Department’s website. If filing electronically, see the Florida e-Services Calendar of Electronic Payment Deadlines (Form DR-659). Short Taxable Years You must file a separate declaration (Florida Form F-1120ES) when a return is required for a period of less than 12 months, unless the short period is less than four months or the requirement is first met after the first day of the last month in the short taxable year. When determining if you must file a declaration of estimated tax for a short taxable year, which results from a change in annual accounting period, you must annualize your net income for the short period. Multiply the short year’s income by 12 and divide the result by the number of months in the short period. If the tax due based on this income is greater than $2,500, a declaration is required. Amended Declaration (Florida Form F-1120ES) You must base your declaration of estimated tax upon a reasonable projection of tax liability. Circumstances may develop during the year that warrant a revision of the original estimated tax. If the revised estimate differs materially from the original estimate, file an amended declaration on or before the next installment due date. Underpayments of Estimated Tax If you underpay estimated tax, penalty and interest apply (see “Penalties” and “Interest” and the instructions for Line 14). Special Instructions Consolidated Returns The privilege of electing to file a Florida consolidated income tax return is limited to an affiliated group where the parent corporation is subject to the Florida Income Tax Code and: 1.

Florida Net Operating Loss Carryover Deduction (NOLD) You may not carry back a Florida net operating loss as a deduction to a prior taxable year. A net operating loss must be carried over to subsequent taxable years and treated in the same manner, to the same extent, and for the same time periods prescribed in s. 172, IRC. The Florida carryover to future tax years is limited to the amount of the federal net operating loss multiplied by the Florida apportionment fraction. However, adjustments such as those listed in s. 220.13(1)(e), F.S., may increase the amount of the Florida carryover. See Rule 12C-1.013(15), F.A.C. The Florida net operating loss carryover deduction is limited to the portion of the carryover apportioned to Florida using the apportionment fraction for the year in which the loss occurred. To support a deduction, attach a schedule showing the following information, as applicable: • Tax Year • Adjusted Federal Loss • Apportionment Fraction for the Year of Loss • Florida Apportioned Income/Loss • Net Operating Loss Carryover (NOLCO) Applied • Florida Portion of Adjusted Federal Income F-1120N R. 01/19 Page 5 of 16 • NOL Carry Forward to Next Year See Examples of Florida Net Operating Loss Carry Forward Schedules on page 15.

The Florida subtraction for net capital loss carryovers is limited to the portion of the carry forward apportioned to Florida using the apportionment fraction for the year in which the loss occurred. To support a deduction, you must attach a schedule showing how you computed the deduction: • Year(s) of loss, • Apportionment fraction for the taxable year in which the loss occurred, and • Amount of the carryover(s) previously deducted. If you are doing business outside Florida, you must enter zero (0) on Schedule II, Lines 5 and 6.

Computation of Florida Net Income Tax Chapter 220, F.S., provides that corporations and other entities base Florida net income on federal taxable income with certain modifications. Such modifications include Florida additions and subtractions, apportionment, and the Florida exemption. Line 1 - Federal Taxable Income Generally, corporations should enter the amount shown on Line 30 of federal Form 1120 or the corresponding line (taxable income) of the related federal income tax return. If a corporation is a member of an affiliated group that filed a consolidated federal tax return, but the corporation is filing a separate return for Florida, the amount shown on Line 1 of the Florida Form F-1120 should be its federal taxable income computed as if it had filed a separate federal income tax return. Attach to Florida Form F-1120: • A copy of the related federal consolidated return that was filed. If you conduct all of your business in Florida, you must enter the Florida net capital loss carryover on Schedule II, Line 4. • A statement reconciling the amount reported on Line 1 with the taxable income shown on Line 30 of the related federal consolidated return. If you are doing business outside Florida, you must enter zero (0) on Schedule II, Line 4, and the Florida portion of net capital loss carryover on Schedule IV, Line 5. • Attach a pro forma federal return, which is a federal return as if the consolidated subsidiary filing separately in Florida had also filed a separate federal return. Florida Excess Contribution Carryover Deductions When you file a Florida consolidated return, the amount that you should enter is the: The excess contribution deductions may not create or increase a net operating loss for Florida. The Florida excess contribution deduction is the lesser of: • the federal excess contribution limitation apportioned to Florida in the current year or • the Florida excess contribution carryover. To support a deduction, you must attach a schedule showing how you computed the deduction: • Year(s) of federal excess contributions, • Actual contributions made, • Federal contribution limitation, • Amount of excess contributions, • Florida apportionment fraction for the taxable year(s), • Apportioned excess contribution to be carried over, and • Amount of the carryover(s) previously deducted.

S corporations should enter only the amount of income subject to federal income tax at the corporate level. Line 2 - State Income Taxes Deducted in Computing Federal Taxable Income Enter the total amount of state income taxes deducted on the federal return in the computation of federal taxable income. Include the amount deducted for income taxes paid to the District of Columbia and all states, including Florida.

Line 8 - Nonbusiness Income Allocated to Florida If the taxpayer’s business is entirely within Florida, enter zero (0). If the business is outside Florida, see the instructions for Schedule R. Line 9 - Florida Exemption Section 220.14, F.S., exempts up to $50,000 of Florida net income. The amount of the exemption is the lesser of $50,000 or the Florida portion of adjusted federal income plus nonbusiness income allocated to Florida (Line 7 plus Line 8). If the sum of Line 7 plus Line 8 is zero or less, enter zero (0). Florida allows only one $50,000 exemption to the members of a controlled group of corporations as defined in s. 1563, IRC. If you file a consolidated return, the amount of exemption taken on Line 9 is limited to the lesser of $50,000 or the Florida portion of adjusted income plus nonbusiness income allocated to Florida (Line 7 plus Line 8). If members of the controlled group file separate returns, follow the instructions for Question G-1. If the taxable year is less than 12 months, the $50,000 exemption must be prorated. Multiply $50,000 by the number of days in the short tax year divided by 365. Line 10 - Florida Net Income Subtract Line 9 from the sum of Lines 7 and 8 and enter the difference. If the result is a loss, enter zero (0). Line 11 - Tax Due Enter 5.5 percent of Line 10. Line 12 - Credits Against the Tax Enter the total credits against the tax from Schedule V, Line 20.

Penalty and interest on an underpayment of estimated tax are computed from the installment due date until the earlier of the payment date or due date for filing the annual tax return, without regard to any extension of time. No penalty or interest will apply if the cumulative amount paid or credited for each installment equals or exceeds the cumulative amount due if the installments were based on: • At least 90 percent of the tax finally shown to be due for the taxable year; or • The tax computed using the prior year facts and income and current year rates. Note: The installment amounts that must be paid to meet the prior year exception are decreased by the amount of the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship Program credit earned with contributions made for the current tax year. Enter any other penalty or interest due on Lines 14(b) and 14(d) respectively. See also “Penalties” and “Interest” on page 3. Line 15 - Total of Lines 13 and 14.

Line 12 - Total Enter the sum of Lines 1 through 11 on this line and on the front page of Florida Form F-1120, Line 5. Schedule III – Apportionment of Adjusted Federal Income Florida taxpayers doing business outside Florida are required to apportion their business income to Florida based upon a three-factor formula (average value of property, payroll, and sales factors), except for insurance companies, transportation companies, citrus processing companies, taxpayers granted permission to use a single sales factor under s. 220.153, F.S., and taxpayers who have been given prior permission by the Department to apportion income using a different method under s. 220.152, F.S. Florida does not allow a taxpayer to apportion income if it is not doing business outside the state. Making only sales in another state without property or payroll in that state does not automatically indicate a taxpayer is “doing business” in a state other than Florida. See Rule 12C-1.015, F.A.C., for further information about when a Florida corporation may apportion income. The three-factor formula measures Florida’s share of adjusted federal income by ratios of the taxpayer’s property, payroll, and sales in Florida to total property, payroll, and sales located or occurring everywhere. The apportionment factors are weighted as follows: 25 percent to property, 25 percent to payroll, and 50 percent to sales. Note: If the amount reported in Schedule III-A, Column (b) for either the property or payroll factor is zero, the weighted percentage for the other factor will be 33 1/3 percent and the weighted percentage for the sales factor will be 66 2/3 percent. If the amount reported in Schedule III-A, Column (b) for the sales factor is zero, the weighted percentage for the property and payroll factors will change from 25 percent to 50 percent each. If the amounts reported in Schedule III-A, Column (b) for any two factors are zero, the weighted percentage for the remaining factor will be 100 percent. All amounts related to nonbusiness income, income related to ss. 78, 862, and 951, IRC, and any other income not included in the adjusted federal income (Florida Form F-1120, Line 6) must be excluded from the apportionment factors. III-A Line 1. Average Value of Property The property factor is a fraction. The numerator of this fraction is the average value of real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used during the taxable year in Florida. The denominator is the average value of such property owned or rented and used everywhere during the taxable year. Property owned is valued at original cost, without regard to accumulated depreciation. Property rented is valued at eight times the net annual rental rate. You must reduce the net annual rental rate by the annual rental rate received from sub-rentals. Compute the average value of property using Schedule III-B. On Lines 1 through 4 of this schedule, enter the beginning-of-year and end-of-year balances for property owned and used within Florida, as well as property owned and used everywhere. Compute the average value using the formula provided on Line 6. Enter F-1120N R. 01/19 Page 10 of 16 the value of rented property on Line 7. Add Lines 6a and 7a and enter the Florida average on Line 8a of Schedule III-B and on Schedule III-A, Line 1, Column (a). Likewise, add Lines 6b and 7b and enter the everywhere average on Line 8b of Schedule III-B and on Schedule III-A, Line 1, Column (b). If substantial fluctuations in the values of the property exist during the tax period or where you acquired property after the beginning of the tax period or disposed of property before the end of the tax period, the Department may require or allow monthly averaging of property values. If monthly averages are used, you must attach appropriate schedules. For corporations not included within the definition of a financial organization, intangible personal property will not be included in the property factor. The property factor used by a financial organization must include intangible personal property, except goodwill, owned and used in the business. The term “financial organization” includes any bank, trust company, savings bank, industrial bank, land bank, safe deposit company, private banker, savings and loan association, credit union, cooperative bank, small loan company, sales finance company, or investment company. The intangible personal property will be valued at its tax basis for federal income tax purposes. Florida considers intangible personal property to be in Florida if it consists of any of the following: (a) Coin or currency located in Florida. (b) Assets in the nature of loans located in Florida, including balances due from depository institutions, repurchase agreements, federal funds sold, and bankers’ acceptances. (c) Installment obligations on loans for which the customer initially applied at an office located in Florida. (d) Loans secured by mortgages, deeds of trust, or other liens upon real or tangible personal property located in Florida. (a) The employee’s service is performed entirely within Florida, or (b) The employee’s service is performed both within and outside Florida, but the service performed outside Florida is incidental to the employee’s service, or (c) Some of the employee’s service is performed in Florida and either the base of operations or the place from which the service is directed or controlled is in Florida, or the base of operations or place from which the service is controlled is not in any state in which some part of the service is performed and the employee’s residence is in Florida. The taxpayer must attach a statement listing all compensation paid or accrued for the taxable year other than that shown on federal Form 1125-A, federal Form 1125-E (if required to complete for federal tax purposes), or federal Form 1120. Sponsored Research and Development Contracts through a University The payroll factor excludes compensation paid to a Florida employee and the property factor excludes any real or tangible personal property located in Florida certified as dedicated exclusively to the activities of sponsored research and development contracts through a state university or a non-public Florida chartered university conducting graduate programs at the professional or doctoral level. This exclusion applies only during the contractual period and the tax savings is limited to the amount paid for the sponsored research. Attach a copy of the certification letter, received from the Board of Governors of the State University System or the university president, to the return. Also, the taxpayer must include the schedule of items, as certified by the university, excluded from the payroll and property factors. III-A Line 3. Sales Factor (f) Credit card receivables from customers who reside or who are commercially domiciled in Florida. The sales factor is a fraction. The numerator of this fraction is the total sales of the taxpayer in Florida during the taxable year. The denominator is the total sales of the taxpayer everywhere during the taxable year. Use Schedule III-C to calculate the sales factor. Enter the numerator on Schedule III-A, Line 3, Column (a) and the denominator on Schedule III-A, Line 3, Column (b). (g) Investments in securities that generate business income where the taxpayer’s commercial domicile is in Florida, unless such securities have acquired a discrete business situs elsewhere. Florida defines the term “sales” as gross receipts without regard to returns or allowances. The term “sales” is not limited to tangible personal property, and includes: (h) Securities held by a state treasurer or other public official or pledged to secure public funds or trust funds deposited with the taxpayer, if the office where the secured deposits are maintained is in Florida. (a) Rental or royalty income if such income is significant in the taxpayer’s business. (e) A portion of a participation loan where the office that enters into the participation is located in Florida. (i) Leases of tangible personal property where the taxpayer’s commercial domicile is in Florida, unless the taxpayer establishes that the location of the leased tangible property is in another state or states for the entire taxable year and the taxpayer is taxable in such other state or states. (j) Installment sale agreements originally executed by a taxpayer or its agent to sell real or tangible personal property located in Florida. (k) Any other intangible personal property located in Florida used to generate business income. III-A Line 2. Payroll The payroll factor is a fraction. The numerator of this fraction is the total amount paid to employees in Florida during the taxable year for compensation. The denominator is the total compensation paid to employees everywhere during the taxable year. Enter the numerator in Schedule III-A, Line 2, Column (a). Enter the denominator in Schedule III-A, Line 2, Column (b). For purposes of this factor, compensation is paid within Florida if: (b) Interest received on deferred payments of sales of real or tangible personal property. (c) Income from the sale, licensing, or other use of intangible personal property. (d) Sales of services. (e) For financial organizations, income from intangible personal property. Making only sales in another state without property or payroll in that state does not automatically indicate a taxpayer is “doing business” in a state other than Florida. See Rule 12C-1.015, F.A.C., for further information about when a Florida corporation may apportion income. Sales will be attributable to Florida using the following criteria: (a) Sales of tangible personal property will be “Florida sales” if the property is delivered or shipped to a purchaser within Florida. (b) Rentals will be “Florida sales” if the real or tangible personal property is in Florida. F-1120N R. 01/19 Page 11 of 16 (c) Interest received on deferred payments of sales of real or tangible personal property will be included in “Florida sales” if the sale of the property is in Florida. (d) Sales of service organizations are within Florida if the services are performed in Florida. For a financial organization, “Florida sales” will also include: (a) Fees, commissions, or other compensation for financial services rendered within Florida. (b) Gross profits from trading in stocks, bonds, or other securities managed within Florida. (c) Interest, other than interest from loans secured by mortgages, deeds of trust, or other liens upon real or tangible property located outside Florida. Transportation service companies Taxpayers furnishing transportation services will use a single factor apportionment fraction to apportion their income to Florida. The term “taxpayers furnishing transportation services” includes taxpayers engaged exclusively in interstate commerce. Florida apportions the income of transportation companies by multiplying their adjusted federal income by a fraction; the numerator is the revenue miles within Florida and the denominator is the revenue miles everywhere. For transportation other than by pipeline, a revenue mile is the transportation of one passenger or one net ton of freight the distance of one mile for consideration. (d) Dividends received within Florida. Enter the amount within Florida in Column (a) and the amount everywhere in Column (b) on Schedule III-D, Line 2. Divide Column (a) by (b) and enter the result on Schedule III-D, Line 2, Column (c) and on Schedule IV, Line 2. (e) Interest for carrying debit balances on margin accounts, charged to customers at their business locations in Florida, without deducting any costs for carrying such accounts. Schedule IV – Computation of Florida Portion of Adjusted Federal Income (f) Interest, fees, commissions, and other charges or gains from loans secured by mortgages, deeds of trust, or other liens upon real or tangible personal property located in Florida or from installment sale agreements originally executed by a taxpayer or its agent to sell real or tangible personal property located in Florida. A taxpayer doing business outside Florida should use Schedule IV to compute the Florida portion of adjusted federal income. Florida does not allow a taxpayer to apportion income using Schedule IV if it is not considered to be doing business outside Florida. (g) Any other gross income, including other interest, resulting from the operation as a financial organization within Florida. Line 1 - Apportionable Adjusted Federal Income III-A Line 4. Apportionment Fraction For Lines 1, 2, and 3 of Schedule III-A, divide the amount in Column (a) by the amount in Column (b). Round the result to six decimal places. Enter the result in Column (c) of Schedule III-A. In Column (d), use the appropriate weight for each factor. See the note on page 9 for more detailed information. Multiply the amount in Column (c) by the weighted percentage in Column (d). Round the result to six decimal places. Enter the result in Column (e). To compute the Florida apportionment fraction, add the weighted factors on Schedule III-A, Lines 1, 2, and 3 of Column (e). Enter the total on Schedule III-A, Line 4 and on Schedule IV, Line 2. III-D. Special Apportionment Fractions Insurance Companies Insurance companies apportion adjusted federal income to Florida by multiplying it by a fraction. The numerator is the direct premiums written for insurance upon properties and risks in Florida and the denominator is direct premiums written on properties and risks everywhere. Florida defines the term “direct premiums written” as the total amount of direct premiums written, assessments, and annuity considerations, as reported on the annual statement filed by the company with the Florida Insurance Commissioner. However, if the principal source of premiums written by an insurance company consists of premiums for reinsurance accepted by it, the numerator and denominator of the above fraction include the direct premiums written plus premiums written for reinsurance. Enter the amounts within Florida in Column (a) and amounts everywhere in Column (b) on Schedule III-D, Line 1. Divide Column (a) by Column (b) and enter the result on Schedule III-D, Line 1, Column (c) and on Schedule IV, Line 2.

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.
