General Filing Requirements for FIT-20 Forms and Schedules Copies of pages 1 through 5 of the corporation’s federal income tax return must be enclosed with Form FIT-20 along with Schedule M-3 as well as any extension of time to file form(s). This requirement is made under the authority of Indiana Code (IC) 6-5.5-6-5. We strongly encourage all taxpayers to make payments and file returns electronically whenever possible. INTIME also allows customers to make estimated payments electronically with just a few clicks. Extension of Time to File All Indiana financial institutions tax return due dates are treated the same as extensions granted because of a federal income tax due date extension. What’s New for 2021 References to the Internal Revenue Code The definition of adjusted gross income (AGI) is updated to correspond to the federal definition of adjusted gross income contained in the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). Any reference to the IRC and subsequent regulations means the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended and in effect on March 31, 2021. For a complete summary of new legislation regarding taxation, please see the Synopsis of 2021 Legislation Affecting the Indiana Department of Revenue at www.in.gov/dor/files/legislativesynopsis-2021.pdf. Who Must File Form FIT-20 IC 6-5.5-2-1 imposes a financial institution tax on the adjusted gross income of any corporation transacting the business of a financial institution, including a holding company, a regulated financial corporation, a subsidiary of a holding company or regulated financial corporation, or any other corporation carrying on the business of a financial institution. Any taxpayer who is subject to tax under IC 6-5.5 is exempt from Indiana’s adjusted gross income tax. Add-Backs • The financial institution tax extends to financial institutions and to all other corporate entities when 80% or more of its gross income is derived from activities that constitute the business of a financial institution. The business of a financial institution is defined as activities authorized by the federal reserve board; the making, acquiring, selling, or servicing of loans or extensions of credit; acting as an agent, a broker, or an advisor in connection with leasing real and personal property that is the economic equivalent of an extension of credit; or operating a credit card, debit card, or charge card business. A new add-back (149) is available for the add-back of certain meal expenses and for which a deduction is allowable in determining federal adjusted gross income. See page 9 for more information. Credits • • A new credit (865) is available for EDGE credits based on non-resident employees working in Indiana. See page 16 for more information. School Scholarship Tax Credit Contribution Ceiling Increased. The total of allowable net contributions to the program has increased to $17.5 million for the program’s fiscal year of July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022. File the general Indiana corporate adjusted gross income tax return, Form IT-20, if for the taxable year the 80% threshold of gross income derived from activities that constitute the business of a financial institution is not met. This form is available online at www.in.gov/dor/tax-forms/2021corporatepartnership-income-tax-forms/. Deductions • A new deduction (634) is available to deduct certain expenses for which a deduction is not permitted for federal income tax purposes because an employer claimed a COVID-related employee retention credit. See page 10 for more information. 4 Due Date • • Maintaining or defending an action or a suit; Filing, modifying, renewing, extending, or transferring a mortgage, deed of trust, or security interest; • Acquiring, foreclosing, or otherwise conveying property in Indiana as a result of a default under the terms of a mortgage, deed of trust, or security interest relating to the property; • Selling tangible personal property, if taxation under this law is precluded because of P.L. 86-272; • Owning an interest in the following types of property even though activities are conducted in Indiana that are reasonably required to evaluate and complete the acquisition or disposition of the property, the servicing of the property, or the income from the property, or the acquisition or liquidation of collateral relating to the property; • An interest in a real estate mortgage investment conduit, a real estate investment trust, or a regulated investment company; • An interest in a loan-backed security representing ownership or participation in a pool of promissory notes or certificates of interest providing for payments in relation to payments or reasonable projections of payments on the notes or certificates; • An interest in a loan or other asset where the interest is attributed to a consumer loan, commercial loan, or secured commercial loan and where the payment obligations were solicited and entered into by a person who is independent and not acting on behalf of the owner; • An interest in the right to service or collect income from a loan or other asset where interest on the loan is attributed as a loan described above and the payment obligations were solicited and entered into by a person who is independent and not acting on behalf of the owner; or • An amount held in an escrow or trust account with respect to the property described previously. Acting: • As an executor of an estate; • As a trustee of a benefit plan; • As a trustee of an employee’s pension, profit sharing, or other retirement plan; • As a trustee of a testamentary or inter vivos trust or corporate indenture; or • In any other fiduciary capacity, including holding title to real property in Indiana. The return due date is the 15th day of the 5th month after the end of the tax year. Apportionment of Adjusted Gross Income The financial institution tax is imposed on the apportioned Indiana income of financial institutions. The law employs a single-factor receipts formula to determine the percentage of the taxpayer’s income subject to the tax. The single-factor formula is derived by dividing the gross receipts attributable to transacting business in Indiana by the total receipts from transacting business in all taxing jurisdictions. Nexus Rules The law is based on the ability of a corporation under modern technology to transact the business of a financial institution in Indiana, regardless of the principal location of its offices and employees. A taxpayer is transacting business in Indiana for purposes of the FIT when it satisfies any of the following eight tests: • Maintains an office in Indiana; • Has an employee, a representative, or an independent contractor conducting business in Indiana; • Regularly sells products or services of any kind or nature to customers in Indiana who receive the product or service in Indiana; • Regularly solicits business from potential customers in Indiana; • Regularly performs services outside Indiana that are consumed within Indiana; • Regularly engages in transactions with customers in Indiana involving intangible property, including loans, but not property described in IC 6-5.5-3-8(5), and resulting in receipts flowing to the taxpayer from within Indiana; • Owns or leases tangible personal or real property located in Indiana; or • Regularly solicits and receives deposits from customers in Indiana. A taxpayer is presumed to “regularly” engage in the above activities when its assets attributable to Indiana are equal to at least $5 million or it has 20 or more Indiana customers. Method of Reporting A taxpayer is allowed to file a separate return only in those instances where the taxpayer is not a member of a unitary group. Members of a unitary group must file collectively on one combined return. No provision is made for filing consolidated returns. Exempt Entities Four specific types of organizations are exempted from the FIT: • Insurance companies otherwise subject to tax under IC 6-3, IC 27-1-2-2.3, or IC 27-1-18-2; • International banking facilities; • S corporations exempt from income tax under IRC Section 1363; and • Nonprofit corporations unless the nonprofit corporation has unrelated business income (with the exception of state chartered credit unions). Federal law prohibits state taxation of federally chartered credit unions. If the taxpayer is a member of a unitary group, combined reporting is mandatory. However, if the taxpayer determines that its Indiana income is not accurately reflected by the filing of a combined return, the taxpayer can petition DOR. Such petition is subject to approval by DOR. The petition must include the name and federal employer identification number of each member of the group petitioning for an alternative method. Each member must include its justification for the alternative method. Exempt Transactions A taxpayer is not considered to be transacting business in Indiana if the ONLY activities of the taxpayer in Indiana are in connection with any of the following: 5 Petitions can also be sent to: Indiana Department of Revenue Tax Policy Division 100 N Senate Ave, N248, MS 102 Indianapolis, IN 46204-2253 A partnership is not required to withhold FIT on behalf of its resident corporate partners. The resident corporate partners are responsible for paying the relevant FIT or adjusted gross income tax themselves. See the Instructions for Form IT-65 for further information regarding withholding requirements. Once the petition is approved, the taxpayer will indicate on the annual return that the return is a separate return made by a member of a unitary group. Attach DOR’s letter granting petition to the annual return filing. Example: A bank in Maine and a bank in Indiana form a partnership to make loans to Indiana borrowers. The only Indiana activity of the Maine bank is its involvement in the partnership. The partnership is required to withhold FIT on the Maine bank’s share of the partnership income. Members of a Unitary Group The combined return shall include the adjusted gross income of all members of the unitary group that are transacting business wholly or partially within Indiana. The statute provides exclusion for the income of corporations or other entities organized in foreign countries, except a federal or state branch of a foreign bank or its subsidiary that transacts business in Indiana. United States Government Obligations “Unitary business” means business activities or operations that are of mutual benefit, dependent upon or contributory to one another, individually or as a group, in transacting the business of a financial institution. The term can be applied within a single entity or between multiple entities and without regard to whether each entity is a corporation, partnership, or trust. Unity is presumed if there is unity of ownership, operation, or use as evidenced by centralized purchasing, advertising, accounting, or other controlled interaction among entities that are members of the unitary group as defined in IC 6-5.5-1-18(a). Extensions for Filing Although interest earned on U.S. obligations is not subject to income taxation, it is not preempted by federal law from being included in the tax base of a franchise tax. Therefore, interest from U.S. obligations is not to be subtracted from federal taxable income in determining the adjusted gross income for the FIT. DOR accepts the federal extension of time application (Form 7004) or the federal electronic extension. If the taxpayer has one, there is no need to contact DOR prior to filing the annual return. Returns postmarked within 30 days after the last date indicated on the federal extension will be considered timely filed. If the taxpayer does not need a federal extension of time but needs one for filing a state return, an extension request and prepayment of 90% can be submitted via INTIME, DOR’s e-services portal at intime.dor.in.gov, or by submitting a letter requesting an extension prior to the annual return’s due date. Unity of ownership exists for a corporation if it is a member of a group of two or more business entities, 50% of whose voting stock is owned by a common owner or owners or by one or more of the member corporations of the group. To request an Indiana extension of time to file by letter, contact: Indiana Department of Revenue Corporate Income Tax Tax Administration P.O. Box 7206 Indianapolis, IN 46207-7206 The taxpayer designated as the reporting member of a unitary group shall file a combined return that includes all operations of the unitary business. List members included in the combined return by completing FIT-20 Schedule H. See Instructions for Filing a Combined Return beginning on page 19. If there is a valid extension of time or a federal electronic extension to file, check Yes on line V on the front of the return. If applicable, enclose a copy of the federal extension of time when filing the state return. Partnerships Partnerships and trusts as entities are not subject to FIT. Partnerships conducting the business of a financial institution are required to file the appropriate informational return, Form IT-65. Trusts conducting the business of a financial institution in Indiana are required to file the appropriate tax returns. An extension of time granted under IC 6-8.1-6-1 waives the late payment penalty for the extension period on the balance of tax due provided at least 90% of the tax due is paid by the original due date and the remaining balance, plus interest, is paid in full by the extended due date. Use DOR’s e-services portal, INTIME, at intime. dor.in.gov to make an extension payment for the taxable year. If the entity is a partnership and has nonresident corporate partners that are themselves conducting the business of a financial institution, the partnership is required to withhold FIT on behalf of the non-resident corporate partner on the nonresident partner’s share of the partnership income. If the nonresident corporate partner is not otherwise itself conducting the business of a financial institution, the partnership is required to withhold Indiana adjusted gross income tax on the non-resident partner’s share of the partnership income. The apportionable income attributable to the partner is the same percentage as its distributive share of the partnership’s income. If a payment is not submitted electronically, it must be made with the financial institution preprinted extension form included with the previous estimated coupon packet Form FT-ES. This payment will be processed as a fifth estimated payment. 6 Note. Any tax paid after the original due date must include interest. Interest on the balance of tax due must be included with the return when it is filed. Interest is computed from the original due date until the date of payment. In October of each year, DOR establishes the interest rate for the next calendar year. See Note. Taxpayers remitting by EFT should not file quarterly FT-QP coupons. The amounts paid by EFT are reconciled when filing the annual income tax return. Departmental Notice #3 at www.in.gov/dor/files/reference/dn03. pdf for interest rates. Amended Returns A taxpayer must notify DOR within 180 days of final alterations or modifications to its federal income tax return (federal adjustment, RAR, etc.) by filing an amended Form FIT-20. If DOR notifies a corporation of the requirements to remit by EFT, the corporation must remit via EFT by the date/tax period specified by DOR. To amend a previously filed Form FIT-20, file a corrected copy of the original form. Check the box at the top of the form for filing an amended return. Failure to comply with the EFT requirement will result in a 10% penalty on each quarterly estimated tax payment not sent by EFT. Indiana Code does not require the extension of time to file payment or final payment due with the annual tax return to be made by EFT. Be sure to claim any EFT payment as an extension or estimated payment credit. Do not file a return indicating an amount due for an amount that has been paid by EFT. To claim a refund of an overpayment, file the return within three years from the latter of the date of the overpayment or the due date of the return. IC 6-8.1-9-1 entitles a taxpayer to claim a refund because of a reduction in tax liability resulting from a final federal modification. The claim for refund must be filed within 180 days from the date of notice of the final modification by the Internal Revenue Service unless the normal three year statute of limitations has yet to expire. If an agreement to extend the statute of limitations for an assessment is entered into between the taxpayer and DOR, the period for filing a claim for refund is likewise extended. If you are required to remit estimated taxes electronically but fail to do so, you may be subject to a 10% penalty on any payments not remitted electronically. Penalty for Underpayment of Estimated Taxes (IC 6-5.5-7-1) Corporations estimating financial institution tax liability are subject to a 10% underpayment penalty if the corporation fails to file estimated tax payments or fails to remit the sufficient amount of estimated payments. To avoid the penalty, the required quarterly estimated payment(s) should include at least 20% of the final financial institution tax liability for the current taxable year or 25% of the corporation’s final financial institution tax liability for the previous tax year. Estimated Quarterly Payments Quarterly payments of estimated financial institution tax are required under IC 6-5.5-6-3 if the annual tax liability is $2,500 or more. The quarterly due dates for estimated quarterly payments of a calendar year filer are April 20, June 20, September 20, and December 20 of the taxable year. If a taxpayer uses a taxable year that does not end on December 31, the due dates for the estimated quarterly financial institution tax payments are on or before the 20th day of the 4th, 6th, 9th, and 12th months of the taxpayer’s taxable year. Estimated quarterly payments can be made via INTIME, DOR’s e-services portal at intime.dor.in.gov. The penalty for the underpayment of estimated tax is assessed on the difference between the actual amount paid by the corporation for each quarter and 20% of the final liability for the current year or 25% of the corporation’s final tax liability for the previous tax year, whichever is less. Refer to Schedule FIT-2220, Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Financial Institutions, on return page 4 of Form FIT-20. If a payment is not submitted electronically via INTIME, it must be made with the financial institution estimate quarterly vouchers, Form FT-QP. DOR mails preprinted FT-QP vouchers to current FIT estimated account holders. Important. Estimated payments of $5,000 or more are required to be made electronically, with a penalty assessed for failure to comply. See page 4 for information about using INTIME, DOR’s e-services portal. Electronic Payment Requirements If the amount of financial institution tax exceeds an average liability of $5,000 per quarter (or $20,000 annually), a customer’s quarterly estimated tax payments must be remitted electronically via INTIME, DOR’s e-services portal at intime.dor.in.gov, or with an electronic funds transfer (EFT). If DOR is unable to obtain payment by the EFT, a penalty of $35 will be assessed. Because there is no minimum amount of payment, DOR encourages all taxpayers not required to remit by EFT to participate voluntarily in our EFT program. 7 Indicate on line V if an extension of time to file is in effect. If applicable, enclose a copy of federal Form 7004 when filing the state return. Instructions for Completing Form FIT-20 Schedule A — Line Instructions Filing Period and Identification Per IC 6-8.1-6-4.5, round amounts to the nearest whole dollar.

Note. If filing as a state-chartered credit union or an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, proceed to line 19 to enter adjusted gross income as defined under IC 6-5.5-1-2(b) and(c). For a name change, check the box at the top of the return. Enclose with the return copies of the amended Articles of Incorporation or an Amended Certificate of Authority filed with the Indiana Secretary of State. Line 2. Enter the qualifying dividend deduction. Note. Corporate addresses, contact names, and other account information may be updated through our self-service portal, INTIME. Line 4. Enter the amount deducted for bad debt (IRC Sec. 166). See line 16 to report recovery of a previously reported worthless debt to the extent a deduction was allowed from gross income in a prior tax year under IRC Sec. 166(a). Line 3. Subtract line 2 from line 1. Add backs: Lines 4 through 10. The federal employer identification number (FEIN) shown in the box must be correct. Line 5. Enter the amount deducted for bad debt reserves of banks (IRC Sec. 585). List the two-digit county code if filing a return for a corporate address in Indiana. See Departmental Notice #1 located at www.in.gov/dor/files/reference/dn01.pdf for a list of county codes. Enter “00” (two zeroes) in the county box D if corporate address lies outside of Indiana. Line 6. Enter the amount deducted for bad debt reserves (IRC Sec. 593). Line 7. Enter the amount deducted for charitable contributions (IRC Sec. 170).

See the instructions to line 23 for subtracting the amount deductible for Indiana net capital losses. Lines L through W of the FIT-20 must be completed for the return to be accepted by DOR. Check or complete all boxes that apply to the return. Check the “final return” box only if the corporation is dissolved, liquidated, or has withdrawn from the state. Timely file Form BC-100 to close out any sales and withholding accounts. Complete these online at www.in.gov/dor/business-tax/closing-abusiness-account/. Line 10. Enter the amount of interest on state and local obligations excluded under IRC Section 103, or under any other federal law, minus the associated expenses disallowed in the computation of taxable income under IRC Section 265. Lines 11 A, B, C, and D. Other Income Modifications Check the appropriate box if filing as a real estate mortgage investment conduit (REMIC). Note. The return for a REMIC is due on the 15th day of the 4th month following the close of the taxpayer’s tax year. Enclose a complete explanation for adjustments. 8 Line 11A. Add or subtract an amount equal to the amount claimed as a deduction for excess business interest. If a deduction for interest paid or incurred in the current year has been disallowed under IRC Section 163(j), subtract the amount of interest disallowed in the current year. If you have interest that was actually paid or incurred in a previous taxable year but disallowed for federal purposes due to the limitations under IRC Section 163(j) AND deducted for federal purposes in the current taxable year, add back the amount of interest so deducted for federal purposes. ib118.pdf for additional information. Note. The net amount determined for the net bonus depreciation or the IRC Section 179 add-back might be a negative figure (because of a higher depreciation basis in subsequent years). If it is, use a minus sign to denote that. (If the taxable income is a loss, this adjustment increases a loss when added back.) Enclose a statement to explain the adjustment. Line 11B. Add or subtract an amount attributable to bonus depreciation in excess of any regular depreciation that would be allowed had not an election under IRC Section 168(k) been made as applied to property in the year that it was placed into service. Taxpayers who own property for which additional firstyear special depreciation for qualified property, including 100% bonus depreciation, was allowed in the current taxable year or in an earlier taxable year, must add or subtract an amount necessary to make adjusted gross income equal to the amount computed without applying any bonus depreciation. The subsequent depreciation allowance is to be calculated as if no bonus depreciation had been claimed until the property is disposed or the property is fully depreciated for Indiana purposes. If line 11B’s amount is negative, use a minus sign to denote that. Line 11D. Deduct the amount of income from qualified utility and plant patents included in federal taxable income as permitted under IC 6-3-2-21.7. Note. Use a minus sign to denote the negative amount. For tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2007, a portion of this income is exempt from Indiana AGI. For more information, see Income Tax Information Bulletin #104 available at www.in.gov/dor/files/reference/ib104.pdf. Lines 12 A, B, C, and D. Total Add-Backs Enter any add-backs and deductions on lines 12A through 12D. Enter the name of the add-back/deduction, its 3-digit code, and its amount. Use a minus sign to denote a negative amount. Attach additional sheets if necessary. Special rules may apply if the bonus depreciation is taken against property acquired in a like-kind exchange. See Income Tax Information Bulletin #118 at www.in.gov/dor/files/reference/ ib118.pdf for additional information. Adding Back Depreciation Expenses Several of the discontinued add-backs were created by timing differences between federal and Indiana allowable expenses. Following is an example of how to report a difference: The additional regular depreciation may be excluded in subsequent years from the amounts to be added back on line 11B, or 11C when excess IRC Section 179 deduction or bonus depreciation was elected for assets placed in service in those subsequent years. Example. ABC Company has qualified restaurant equipment. For federal tax purposes, they use the accelerated 15-year recovery period for an asset placed in service in 2009. Since 2009, ABC Company has been adding back the depreciation expense taken for federal purposes that exceeded the amount allowable for Indiana purposes. The accumulated depreciation on such an asset through 2012 is, therefore, different for federal and state purposes. This difference will remain until the asset is fully depreciated or until the time of its disposition. See Income Tax Information Bulletin #118 available at www. in.gov/dor/files/reference/ib118.pdf for information on the allowance of depreciation for state tax purposes. Line 11C. Add or subtract the amount necessary to make the adjusted gross income of the taxpayer that placed any IRC Section 179 property in service in the current taxable year or in an earlier taxable year equal to the amount of adjusted gross income that would have been computed as if the federal limit for expensing under IRC section 179 was $25,000 as opposed to $1,000,000 (adjusted for inflation). So, in this example, the asset was acquired in January 2009 at a purchase price of $120,000. This normally would have a 25-year recovery period, but IRC Sec. 168 allows for a 15-year recovery period. Tax year 2012 is the last year ABC Company will have reported a qualified restaurant equipment add-back until the end of the 15-year recovery period. Indiana has adopted an expensing cap of $25,000. This modification affects the basis of the property if a higher Section 179 limit was applied. The federal increase to a $1,000,000 deduction was not allowed for purposes of calculating Indiana adjusted gross income. However, the $2,500,000 threshold for phase-out (adjusted for inflation) is allowed for purposes of calculating Indiana AGI. The depreciation allowances in the year of purchase and in later years must be adjusted to reflect the additional first-year depreciation deduction, including the special depreciation allowance for 100% bonus depreciation property, until the property is sold or fully depreciated for Indiana purposes. If this asset was sold before being fully depreciated, the catch-up modification would be reflected in the year of the sale. However, if this property is held through 2023 (the 15th year of depreciation), ABC Company will report a negative $9,600 catch-up add-back on the 2023 state tax return. The following add-backs and deductions should be entered on lines 12A through 12D: Meal Deduction Add-Back (3-digit code: 149) If you: • claimed a deduction for meal expenses with regard to food and beverages provided by a restaurant in computing your federal taxable income; AND Special rules may apply if the Section 179 expensing is taken against property acquired in a like-kind exchange. See Income Tax Information Bulletin #118 at www.in.gov/dor/files/reference/ 9 Line 19. Total Income Prior to Apportionment: Subtract line 18 from line 14. • the deduction would have been limited to 50% of the meal expenses if the expenses had been incurred before Jan. 1, 2021, add back the amount deducted for federal purposes in excess of 50% of the food or beverage expenses. State-chartered credit unions must begin on line 19 by entering “adjusted gross income.” For state-chartered credit unions, “adjusted gross income” equals the total transfers to undivided earnings, minus dividends for that taxable year after statutory reserves are set aside under IC 28-7-1-24. In other words, “adjusted gross income” can be defined as net transfers to undivided earnings. No other deductions are permitted. The above definition also applies to a nonresident credit union doing business in Indiana. Do not add back any amounts for which an exception to the 50% limitation was in effect for amounts paid before Jan. 1, 2021. Example: Bank, Inc. incurs $2,000 in meal expenses during 2021 and deducts the entire $2,000 in computing Bank, Inc.’s 2021 federal taxable income. The meal expenses do not qualify for a federal exception from the 50% limitation under IRC § 274. Bank, Inc., is required to add back $1,000. Investment companies, defined under IC 6-5.5-1-2(d), must begin on line 19 by reporting federal taxable income computed according to the Internal Revenue Code plus interest on state and local obligations acquired by the taxpayer after Dec. 31, 2011, and excluded from federal gross income under IRC section 103 , before any net operating loss deduction. An investment company must also complete line 12 of FIT-20 Schedule E-U. Government or Civic Group Capital Contribution Deduction (3-digit code: 633) Subtract any amount included in federal taxable income that are capital contributions from a government or civic group and not excluded under IRC Section 118. COVID-related Employee Retention Credit Disallowed Expenses Deduction (3-digit code: 634) If you had a deduction that was disallowed for federal purposes because an employer claimed a federal COVID-related employee retention credit, deduct the amount that was: • disallowed for federal purposes; and • that otherwise would have been allowable in determining Indiana adjusted gross income. Line 20. Total Income Prior to Apportionment: Enter the amount carried from line 19. Line 21. Apportionment Percentage: (See instructions for Schedule E-U.) This line should be used by all taxpayers and unitary groups. Enter the amount from line 15 of Schedule E-U. Line 22. Apportioned Adjusted Gross Income for Indiana: Multiply line 20, total income subject to apportionment, by line 21, apportionment percentage from Schedule E-U. Do not deduct any amounts for amounts disallowed for nonCOVID related employee retention credits such as disaster-related employee retention credits. Line 23. Indiana Net Capital Loss Adjustment: Enter your Indiana net capital loss carryover (see the sample worksheet on page 11). Line 23 is limited to the amount on line 22. Also, line 9 must be completed to add back an amount equal to the federal net capital loss deduction. Line 13. Total Add-Backs: Add lines 4 through line 12D. Line 14. Subtotal Income: Add line 3 and line 13. Deductions from Income Note. Excess capital losses may be carried forward for five years following the loss year; however, there is no provision for the carryback of a capital loss incurred under the FIT. Line 15. Subtract net income (foreign gross receipts less the foreign deductions) derived from sources outside the United States as defined in the Internal Revenue Code and included in federal taxable income. Include all repatriated dividend income listed on the IRC 965 Transition Tax Statement and included in Line 1 of the FIT-20 on this line. Filers should keep detailed records as DOR can ask for this information at a later date. Net Capital Loss Adjustment for FIT-20 Line 23 — Sample Worksheet Enclose with the return the worksheet that shows the following calculations. Use this format to determine the available amount of an Indiana net capital loss and the remainder to carry forward. Add sheets to include all members of a unitary group. See the worksheet on page 12. Line 16. Subtract an amount equal to a debt or portion of a debt becoming worthless (IRC Sec. 166). This will include reporting a modification as a positive adjustment for any recovery of an amount of previously reported bad debts that were included in a bad debt deduction in prior years (applicable to taxpayers not defined as a large bank under IRC Section 585(c)(2) or Savings Association under IRC Section 593). Computation of Indiana Net Capital Loss for Carryforward For a taxpayer who is not filing a combined return, the taxpayer’s taxable income consists of an adjustment for net capital losses computed under the Internal Revenue Code and derived from Indiana. Capital losses and capital gains derived from Indiana are determined by the apportionment percentage applicable to each taxable year. Line 17. Subtract an amount equal to any bad debt reserves included in federal income because of accounting method changes required by IRC Sec. 585(c)(3)(A) or IRC Section 593. Line 18. Total Deductions: Add lines 15 through 17. 10 Example Loss Year Ending: 12-31-2020 1. Net capital loss from federal Schedule D without IRC Section 1212 carryover...................................................................... -$80,000 2. FIT-20 Indiana apportioned income percentage for the taxable year of the capital loss ..............................................................50% 3. Indiana net capital loss for carry forward (limited to succeeding five years) ......................................................................... -$40,000 Additional provisions required for a combined return: Any net capital loss or net operating loss attributable to Indiana in the combined return must be prorated between each member of the unitary group having nexus in Indiana. Each member must calculate its share of the capital loss and amount available to be applied for the combined return. The net capital loss attributable to Indiana in the combined return is prorated between each taxpayer member of the unitary group by the quotient of: a. The Indiana receipts of those taxpayer members attributable to Indiana, divided by; b. The total receipts of all taxpayer members to Indiana. Example Indiana receipts attributable to: Member’s ratio of Indiana receipts: Prorated share of Indiana net capital loss: Member A Member B Member C Combined Indiana Total $6,000,000 $9,600,000 $8,400,000 $24,000,000 25% 40% 35% 100% -$10,000 -$16,000 -$14,000 Carry forward these amounts separately on the combined return. Use this portion of the worksheet as many times as needed to determine the deductible net capital loss applied against any Indiana net capital gains during the five-year carryforward period following the year of a loss. Computation of Net Capital Loss Adjustment The net capital loss available to be applied, if any, and carried forward to any subsequent year shall be limited to the capital gains for the subsequent year of each taxpayer member. The amount of net capital gains is determined by the same receipts formula used in computing the amount of loss derived from Indiana and is prorated between members of a unitary group (IC 6-5.5-2-1). Example Gain Year Ending: 12-31-2021 4. Net capital gain from federal Schedule D (recomputed without any IRC Section 1212 unused capital loss carryover)..... $50,000 5.

Line 24. Total Adjusted Gross Income: Subtract line 23 from line 22. If subtotal is less than zero, enter 0. Line 25. Indiana Net Operating Loss Deduction: The amount to report on this line is the Indiana portion of the net operating loss, and it cannot exceed the amount reported on line 24. Net operating losses can be carried forward for 15 years. There is no provision for net operating loss carrybacks. Complete and enclose Schedule FIT-20NOL with the return. To determine the amount of tax attributable to the loan transaction, divide the total receipts from qualified loans by the total receipts attributable to Indiana. Multiply that quotient, expressed as a percentage, by the total amount of tax due to determine the amount of tax attributable to the loan. This is the amount of credit that may be available. The actual credit is equal to the lesser of the actual taxes paid to the domiciliary state for the loan transaction and the amount due to Indiana on the loan transaction. If the taxpayer’s domiciliary state grants a credit for taxes paid to other states, the credit available for purposes of Indiana’s tax must be reduced by the amount of the credit granted by the taxpayer’s domiciliary state. (See the instructions for completing Schedule FIT-NRTC on page 20.) Line 26. Indiana Adjusted Gross Income: Subtract line 25 from line 24. Line 27. Indiana Financial Institution Tax Due: Multiply the amount on line 26 by the current tax rate. If line 26 is a loss amount, enter zero on this line. Financial institutions are subject to a FIT under IC 6-5.5 at the following declining rates: • For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2020, and before Jan. 1, 2022 5.5%. • For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2021, and before Jan. 1, 2023 5.0%. • For taxable years beginning after Dec. 31, 2022, 4.9%. Nonresident credits are determined for each taxpayer member of a unitary group on an individual basis, notwithstanding that the adjusted gross income is reported on a combined basis for all members of a unitary group. Line 29. Net Financial Institution Tax Due: Subtract the amount on line 28 from the amount on line 27. Line 28.

First, check the “Yes” box that follows the sentence “I authorize the Department to discuss my tax return with my personal representative.” Line 49. Late Penalty Enter the computed penalty amount that applies. Next, enter: • The name of the individual designated as the corporation’s personal representative; and • The individual’s email address.

At least 90% of the tax was paid by the original due date; and 3. The remaining tax and interest due is paid by the extended due date. If this area is completed, DOR is authorized to contact the personal representative, instead of the corporation, about this tax return. After the return is filed, DOR will communicate primarily with the designated personal representative on matters concerning the return. 15 Note.

Indiana usually releases forms for the current tax year between January and April. We last updated Indiana FIT-20 Booklet from the Department of Revenue in January 2022.
FIT-20 Booklet is an Indiana Corporate Income Tax form. Like the Federal Form 1040, states each provide a core tax return form on which most high-level income and tax calculations are performed. While some taxpayers with simple returns can complete their entire tax return on this single form, in most cases various other additional schedules and forms must be completed, depending on the taxpayer's individual situation, to create a complete income tax return package.
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.
