Form TSA Instructions What is the Film Payroll/Production Credit? For taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2006 and before January 1, 2023, Massachusetts allows two credits for motion picture production companies who meet certain qualifications and requirements. Transfer, Sale or Assignment of the credit? A taxpayer subject to the personal income tax under MGL ch 62 or the corporate excise under MGL ch 63 may transfer, sell or assign either the payroll or production expense credit, in part or in whole, to one or more other taxpayers that are subject to the personal income tax under MGL ch 62 or taxpayers subject to the corporate excise under MGL ch 63. Any holder of the credits, including a motion picture production company, transferee, buyer or assignee, that wants to make a sale, transfer or assignment of the credits (the “transferor”) shall obtain a certificate to transfer, sell or assign the credits before making a transfer to another taxpayer. The transferor must submit to the Commissioner a statement in the form prescribed by the Commissioner that details the amount of tax credit being sold, transferred or assigned and any other information required by the Commissioner. Potential transferors that have an outstanding tax obligation with the state in connection with any motion picture for any prior taxable year are not eligible to transfer, sell or assign the credits. Transferees that have an outstanding tax liability are subject to offsets prior to application of the credit against their current tax liability. Transferees, buyers or assignees may use and carryforward the credits to any of the five taxable years subsequent to the first taxable year the credits were allowed to the initial transferor. Transferring, selling or assigning a credit does not extend the five-year carryforward period.

Form TSA is a Massachusetts Corporate Income Tax form. The IRS and most states will grant an automatic 6-month extension of time to file income tax and other types of tax returns, which can be obtained by filing the proper extension request form. Obtaining an extension will prevent you from being subject to often very large failure-to-file penalties. However, in most cases this extension does not exempt you from the requirement to pay any tax owed in full by the return's original filing date.

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.
