Don’t include the wages of employees earning more than $48.08 per hour. Project Site This is the location of new plant and building facilities owned or leased by the taxpayer. The project site can be one or more geographic areas in Idaho but only if 80% or more of the investment required is located at one of the areas. Project Period This is the period of time that begins at the earlier of: • A physical change to the project site or • The first employment of new employees in Idaho who are related to the activities at the project site. The project period can’t begin before January 1, 2006. The project period ends when all of the project’s facilities are placed in service but no longer than 10 years or later than December 31, 2020. New Plant and Building Facilities This includes property that meets either the definition of qualifed investment for purposes of the investment tax credit (ITC) or is a building or a structural component of a building. The property must be new property. Used property doesn’t qualify. New property is property acquired or constructed by the taxpayer whose original use begins with the taxpayer after acquisition or construction. Original use means the first use of the EIN00093 07-15-2019 property, whether or not that corresponds to the use of the property by the taxpayer. Property used by the taxpayer before its acquisition doesn’t qualify. New Employees To qualify as a new employee for the tax incentive criteria an employee must: • Be employed primarily at the project site by the taxpayer • Have wages subject to Idaho income tax withholding • Be covered for Idaho unemployment insurance purposes • Be eligible to receive employer-provided coverage under a health plan described in Idaho Code section 41-4703 • Be employed on a regular full-time basis • Meet the applicable wage requirements For this purpose, earnings include income subject to Idaho income tax withholding but don’t include stock options or restricted stock grants. An existing employee of the taxpayer or a related taxpayer who’s transferred to a new position at the project site won’t qualify as a new employee unless the transfer results in a net new job in Idaho. Once reached, you must maintain the net increase in employment at the project site for the rest of the project period. Tax Incentives If you’ve met or will meet the tax incentive criteria, you’re eligible to claim the tax incentives listed in the table on page 2. Recapture If you certify you’ll meet the tax incentive criteria and then don’t meet that criteria, you’ll be required to recapture the full amount of any incentives claimed. You may need to recapture all or a portion of the incentives if you: • Dispose of an investment in new plant or building facilities or it no longer qualifies before being held for five years from the date placed in service • Don’t maintain the required level of employment for five years from the date the project period ends or • Don’t use, store or otherwise consume property that was allowed a sales tax exemption within the project site for a period of five full years from the date the property was placed in service.

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.
