You must have received preliminary or final approval in accordance with KRS 154.26 to determine the credit allowed. Schedule KIRA-T is used by the company which has entered into a tax incentive agreement for a Kentucky Industrial Revitalization Act (KIRA) project to maintain a record of the approved costs, wage assessment fees, and tax credits, including local wage assessment credit claimed. General Instructions – Only include one incentive project per Package KIRA. If your business entity files a form 720 or 720U with the state of Kentucky, you must complete Schedule KIRA (Page 3) and Schedule KIRA-T (Page 7). If your business entity files form PTE or 725, you must complete Schedule KIRA-SP (Page 5) and Schedule KIRA-T (Page 7). First and Last Year Prorations—Tax incentives are only available to be claimed during the term of the incentive agreement. Tax incentives claimed during the first and last years of an incentive agreement must be prorated accordingly. Separate period accounting is recommended, but a proration factor may be used if separate period accounting is not available. To determine the proration factor in the first year of the incentive agreement, divide the number of days from the activation date until the end of your taxable year by the total number of days in your taxable year. Multiply the total income by the proration factor to determine the project income when separate period accounting is not available. To determine the proration factor in the last year of the incentive agreement, divide the number of days from the first day of your taxable year through the end of the incentive agreement term by the total number of days in your taxable year. Multiply the total income by the proration factor to determine the project income when separate period accounting is not available. 41A720-S26 KIRA (PKG) (10-20) Page 2 of 8 SCHEDULE KIRA TAX CREDIT COMPUTATION SCHEDULE (FOR A KIRA PROJECT OF A CORPORATION) Commonwealth of Kentucky Department of Revenue 2020 Taxable Year Ending __ __ / __ __ Name of Corporation Federal Identification Number __ __ — __ __ __ __ __ __ __ Location of Project City Activation Date of KIRA Incentive Agreement County Mo.  /     / Day Mo.

The amount of tax credit against each tax can be different; however, for tracking purposes, the maximum amount of credit used against either tax is the amount that is used for the tax year. PURPOSE OF SCHEDULE—This schedule is used by a corporation to determine the credit allowed against the Kentucky corporation income tax and /or LLET attributable to the project per KRS 141.403. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Part I—Computation of LLET Excluding KIRA Project Line 2—Use Form 720, Schedule L on page 8 or Form 720U, Schdule U8 to compute a separate LLET of the KIRA project using only the Kentucky gross receipts and Kentucky gross profits of the project. Enter “KIRA” at the top center of the separate Schedule L or Schedule U8 and attach it to the tax return when filed. If approved for multiple projects, attach a separate Schedule L or Schedule U8 of each project’s LLET computation. In the first and last years of each project, only calculate Kentucky gross receipts and gross profits received during the term of the incentive agreement. If the corporation has operations other than the KIRA project, it must attach schedules reflecting the computation of Kentucky gross profits and Kentucky gross receipts from the KIRA project per KRS 141.403(6) (b)** or KRS 141.403(7)(b).**** Part II—Computation of Taxable Net Income Excluding Net Income from KIRA Project and KIRA Tax Credit Section B Line 2—Enter net income for KIRA project. If the corporation’s only operation in Kentucky is the KIRA project, the amount entered on Line 1 must also be entered on Line 2. If the corporation has operations other than the KIRA project, it must attach schedules reflecting the computation of the net income from the KIRA project per KRS 141.403(6)(a)* or KRS 141.403(7) (a).*** In the first and last years of each project, only calculate Kentucky net income received during the term of the incentive agreement.

Alternative Methods—Per KRS 141.403(8), if the approved company can show that the nature of the operations and activities of the approved company are such that it is not practical to use separate accounting to determine net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits from the facility where the project is located, the approved company must determine net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits attributable to the project using an alternative method approved by the Department of Revenue. Thus, if any method other than separate accounting is used, a copy of the letter from the Department of Revenue approving the alternative method must be attached to this schedule. Separate Facility * Per KRS 141.403(6)(a), if the project is a totally separate facility, net income attributable to the project shall be determined by the separate accounting method. ** Per KRS 141.403(6)(b), if the project is a totally separate facility, Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits attributable to the project shall be determined under the separate accounting method reflecting only the Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits directly attributable to the facility. Expansion to Existing Facility *** Per KRS 141.403(7)(a), if the KIRA project is an expansion to a previously existing facility, net income attributable to the entire facility shall be determined under the separate accounting method and the net income attributable to the KIRA project shall be determined by apportioning the separate accounting net income of the entire facility to the KIRA project income using a formula approved by the Department of Revenue. A copy of the letter from the Department of Revenue approving the percentage must be attached to this schedule. **** Per KRS 141.403 (7)(b), if the KIRA project is an expansion to a previously existing facility, Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits attributable to the entire facility shall be determined under the separate accounting method and the Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits attributable to the KIRA project shall be determined by apportioning the separate accounting Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits of the entire facility to the KIRA project Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits using a formula approved by the Department of Revenue.

Pass-through entities should first complete Form PTE to determine net income (loss), deductions, etc., from the entire operations of the pass-through entity. The passthrough entity should then complete Schedule KIRA-SP to determine the KIRA tax credit and the tax due, if any, from the KIRA project. A pass-through entity is subject to tax per KRS 141.020 and KRS 141.0401 on the net income and the Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits from the KIRA project and the KIRA credit is applied against the tax of the KIRA project. Consequently, the pass-through entity must use Form PTE(K) to exclude the net income from the KIRA project from the partners’, members’, or shareholders’ distributive share income. Multiple Projects—A pass-through entity with multiple economic development projects must complete the applicable schedules (KREDA-SP, KIDA-SP, KJRA-SP, KIRA-SP, KJDA-SP, KBI-SP, KRA-SP, or IEIA-SP) to determine the credit and net tax liability, if any, for each project. Line 1—If the pass-through entity’s only operation is the KIRA project, the amount entered on Line 1 is the net income (loss) from Form PTE. If the pass-through entity has operations other than the KIRA project, a schedule must be attached reflecting the computation of the net income (loss) from the KIRA project in accordance with the following instructions and enter on Line 1. In the first and last years of each project, only calculate Kentucky taxable income received during the term of the incentive agreement. Separate Facility—Per KRS 141.403(6), if the project is a totally separate facility, net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits attributable to the project must be determined by a separate accounting method. Expansion of Existing Facility—Per KRS 141.403(7), if the KIRA project is an expansion to a previously existing facility, the net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits must be determined under a separate accounting method reflecting the entire facility and the net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits must be determined by apportioning the net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits of the entire facility to the economic development project by a formula approved by the Department of Revenue. A copy of the letter from the Department of Revenue approving the percentage must be attached to the schedule. A l te rn a t i ve M e t h o d s — Pe r K R S 14 1. 4 0 3 ( 8 ) , i f t h e approved company can show that the nature of the operations and activities of the approved company are such that it is not practical to use a separate accounting method to determine the net income, Kentucky gross receipts, or Kentucky gross profits from the facility where the economic development project is located, the approved company must use an alternative method approved by the Department of Revenue. A copy of the letter from the Department of Revenue approving the alternative method must be attached to this schedule. 41A720-S26 KIRA-SP (10-20) 2020 Separate Accounting—If the economic development project is a totally separate facility, net income must reflect only the gross income, deductions, expenses, gains, and losses allowed under this chapter directly attributable to the facility and overhead expenses apportioned to the facility; and Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits must reflect only Kentucky gross receipts or Kentucky gross profits directly attributable to the facility. If the economic development project is an expansion to a previously existing facility, net income of the entire facility must reflect only the gross income, deductions, expenses, gains, and losses allowed under this chapter directly attributable to the facility and overhead expenses apportioned to the facility; and Kentucky gross receipts and Kentucky gross profits must reflect only Kentucky gross receipts and Kentucky gross profits directly attributable to the facility. Net income, Kentucky gross receipts, and Kentucky gross profits of the entire facility attributable to the economic development project must be determined by apportioning the net income, Kentucky gross receipts, and Kentucky gross profits by a formula approved by the Department of Revenue. Line 2—Enter the net operating loss from the KIRA project, if any, being carried forward from previous years. Note: Just as the income from a KIRA project does not flow through to partners, members, or shareholders, neither do the losses. The project’s net operating loss from prior years must be subtracted from the project income before calculating the KIRA credit. General Partnership—Lines 5 and 6 of this schedule should not be completed by a general partnership as a general partnership is not subject to LLET. Line 5—Use Schedule L on page 10 of Form PTE or page 5 of Form 725 to compute a separate LLET of the KIRA project using only the Kentucky gross receipts and Kentucky gross profits of the project. Enter “KIRA” at the top center of the separate Schedule L and attach it to the tax return when filed. If approved for multiple projects, attach a separate Schedule L of each project’s LLET computation. In the first and last years of each project, only calculate Kentucky LLET received during the term of the incentive agreement. Line 9—In lieu of the tax credit, the approved company may elect, on an annual basis, to apply as an estimated tax payment an amount equal to the allowable tax credit. Any estimated tax payment must be in satisfaction of the tax liability of the partners, members, or shareholders of the passthrough entity and must be paid on behalf of the partners, members, or shareholders. Enter an amount on either (a) or (b), but in no case should there be an entry on both (a) and (b). Per KRS 141.403(5), this estimated tax payment is excluded in determining each partner’s, member’s, or shareholder’s distributive share income or credit from a pass-through entity. Accordingly, the partners, members, or shareholders are not entitled to claim any portion of this estimated tax payment against their Kentucky income tax liability.

This information is necessary for the company to determine the limitation of the tax credit for each year of the revitalization agreement and to allow the Kentucky Department of Revenue to verify that the credit has been properly computed. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS A separate Schedule KIRA-T, Tracking Schedule for a KIRA Project, must be maintained for the duration of each KIRA project. Beginning with the first taxable year of the KIRA revitalization agreement, complete Columns A through F using a separate line for each year of the revitalization agreement. The company must attach a copy of this schedule updated with current year information to the Schedule KIRA or Schedule KIRA-SP which is filed with the Kentucky tax return and attach a copy to the Wage Assessment Report and Annual Reconciliation. All tax credits are entered on Schedule TCS, Tax Credit Summary Schedule. The total tax credits calculated may exceed the amount that can be used. Credits must be claimed in the order prescribed by KRS 141.0205. Total credits claimed cannot reduce the LLET below the $175 minimum nor the income tax liability below zero. 2020 thereafter, if the amount entered in Column E for the prior year exceeds the combined total of income tax credit and corporation license tax credit claimed for the prior year in Column F, enter the difference. Column C—Enter the total amount of state wage assessments withheld from the salaries of employees during the taxable year, or the appropriations received during the taxable year if an appropriation agreement was entered into in lieu of utilization of the wage assessment. Column D—Enter the total amount of local wage assessment credit claimed, if eligible. Column E—Enter the result of subtracting the amounts entered in Columns C and D from the amount entered in Column B. Then, enter on Schedule KIRA, Part III, Line 2 or Schedule KIRA-SP, Part I, Line 8, whichever is applicable. Column F— The tax credit calculated for each tax can be different; however, for tracking purposes, the greater of the credit claimed against LLET or income tax is recorded as the amount claimed. Enter the greater of Column E or Column F from Schedule TCS for this project, if applicable. Otherwise, enter zero (-0-). SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS Column A—Enter on each line the ending date (month and year) of the taxable year for which the information requested in Columns B through F is entered. Column B—For the taxable year that includes the revitalization agreement date, enter 50 percent or 75 percent of the approved costs as verified by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority.

Schedule KIRA is a Kentucky Corporate Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.

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.

Historical Past-Year Versions of Kentucky Schedule KIRA
