CONSOLIDATED FEDERAL RETURN AND SEPARATE MISSOURI RETURN A corporation, which is a member of an affiliated group filing a consolidated federal corporation income tax return, shall (if no Missouri consolidated return is filed) determine its federal taxable income as if it had filed a separate federal corporation income tax return for the year. • For tax periods that the consolidated return and separate company return show an NOL that is carried back, attach a copy of the consolidated Federal Form 1139 or Federal Form 1120X. Also include the income statement for the loss year, the revised income statement for the amended tax period(s), and a schedule showing the calculation of the federal income tax de­duc­tion on the amended return. The corporation must enclose a pro forma Federal Form 1120, with all pertinent schedules, where­in its separate federal taxable income is computed with Form MO-1120. The first five pages of the actual consolidated federal corporation income tax return and an income statement, or a summary of profit com­panies for the year, must be attached. The complete consolidated federal return may be required upon an audit of the Mis­souri return. Note: The corporation is required to file an amended return to adjust the federal income tax deduction for any tax period that the consolidated tax liability changes due to an NOL carryback, even if no loss exists to be carried back on a separate company basis. REPORTABLE TRANSACTION DISCLOSURE STATEMENT FEDERAL FORM 8886 Attach supporting statements for each corporation included in the consolidated return. Do not use Form MO-1120 as a supporting statement. Every corporation must attach a copy of each Federal Form 8886 that was filed with the IRS as part of its federal return or as part of a consolidated federal return. The corporation’s federal income tax de­duc­tion will be a portion of the tax on consolidated Federal Form 1120. See Form MO-1120, Part 3. SUBSIDIARIES INCLUDED IN THE FILING OF THIS RETURN UNCERTAIN TAX POSITION STATEMENT FEDERAL SCHEDULE UTP If the corporation is filing a consolidated Missouri return, attach a separate schedule that lists the names of the subsidiaries, Federal Identification Numbers and Mis­souri Tax Identification Numbers. A corporation must attach a copy of Federal Schedule UTP if the corporation has one or more tax positions that must be reported to the IRS on Schedule UTP and the schedule was filed with the IRS as part of its federal return or as part of a consolidated federal return. NET OPERATING LOSSES Corporations that file a Missouri return with a federal net operating loss (NOL) must treat the loss under the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Corporations that file a consolidated federal and separate Missouri return must compute the separate federal taxable income as if each member filed a separate federal return. In any year an NOL is carried forward or carried back, a corporation is required to provide a schedule detailing each NOL: the year of the loss, the amount of the loss, the loss previously utilized and the amount of the loss currently being utilized on a consolidated and separate company basis. DECLARATION OF ESTIMATED TAX Every corporation subject to income tax in this state must make a declaration of its estimated tax for the taxable year on Form MO-1120ES, if its Missouri estimated tax could reasonably be ex­pected to be at least $250 (Section 143.521, RSMo). If an affiliated group of corporations files a Missouri consolidated income tax return for the taxable year, its Missouri estimated tax payments may be combined on Form MO-1120 (12 CSR 10-2.045(36)). For federal and Missouri purposes, a corporation can use the federal NOL incurred in one tax year to reduce the taxable income in another tax year. The NOL deduction cannot exceed the corporation’s taxable income (after special deductions). An NOL deduction cannot be used to increase a loss in a loss year or to create a loss in a profit year. A corporation may amend its declaration on Form MO-1120ES. Mail the declaration of estimated tax payments to: Missouri Department of Rev­e­nue, P.O. Box 3020, Jefferson City, MO 65105-3020. Make the check payable to Missouri Department of Revenue and include your Missouri Tax Identification Number on your check. A separate company is bound by the consolidated federal return election to carry losses forward or back, (i.e., if the loss is carried back on your federal return, the separate company loss must be carried back). If the loss is carried forward the corporation must provide detailed schedules reflecting the loss amount(s), year(s) of the loss, and year and amount of the loss utilized on a consolidated and separate company basis. You can file and pay Declaration of Estimated Tax for Corporation Income Tax (Form MO-1120ES), online using a Credit Card or E-Check (Electronic Bank Draft). To file and pay online, please visit dor.mo.gov/business/payonline.php. EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE AND PAY If the consolidated return shows taxable income and the separate company return shows a loss, the corporation may elect to carry the federal separate company loss forward or back pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code on a separate company basis in Missouri. The corporation must provide a copy of page 1 of the federal consolidated return for the separate company loss year. If a corporation has been granted an extension of time to file its federal income tax return, the time for filing the Missouri corporation income tax return is automatically extended. Select the box at the top of the form indicating you have an approved federal extension and attach a copy of the Federal Extension, Form 7004, to the MO-1120. (Failure to check this box may result in disallowing the extension.) The only NOL subject to carry forward or carry back is the loss from the federal tax return. Missouri does not have provisions for a state NOL deduction. A negative number on Form MO-1120, Lines 8, 9, or 13 is not an NOL. An extension of time to file does not extend the time for payment of the tax. The corporation must pay, on or before the original due date, the amount properly estimated. If you expect to owe tax, file Form MO-7004. If the corporation is required to file an amended Missouri return to carry back a federal NOL, provide the following information with the amended Form MO-1120: FILING AMENDED RETURNS • If the consolidated federal income is positive and you are carrying back a separate company loss, attach a copy of the consolidated Federal Form 1120 page 1 for the separate company loss year to confirm that there is no consolidated loss to be carried back. Form MO-1120 must be used for amending tax year 2015 and forward for corporation income tax. The corporation must complete the entire return using the corrected figures. Complete each line using the corrected amounts. Failure to fill out the entire return will delay the processing of the return. • If the consolidated federal return is a loss for the current tax period and the previous tax periods are consolidated losses, 3 *14000000001* 14000000001 For amending tax years prior to the 2015 corporation income tax: • Amended Return — Check the box if the corporation is filing an amended return. • Form MO-1120 must be used for amending corporation income tax for tax years 1993–1999. • Name Change — Check this box if the corporation’s name has changed since filing the previous Form MO-1120. • Form MO-FT, must be used for amending corporation franchise tax for tax years 2000 and prior. • Address Change — Check this box if the corporation’s address has changed since filing the previous Form MO-1120. • Form MO-1120 and Form MO-FT must be used for amending corporation income tax years 2000-2014 and corporation franchise tax years 2001-2015. • Final Return and Close Corporation Income Tax Account — Check this box if the corporation ceased doing business during the tax period for which this return is being filed. • Form MO-1120X must be used for amending corporation income tax for tax year 1992 and prior. • Bankruptcy — Check this box if the corporation has filed for bankruptcy since filing the previous Form MO-1120 or if the corporation is still in bankruptcy.

A copy of Forms MO-1041 and MO-1065, must be attached to the Form MO-1120. If a taxpayer fails to compute reasonable related expenses, the Department of Revenue will make adjustments based on the information available. If sufficient information is not available, the Department of Revenue will use the following formula to compute related expenses: LINE 3 - NET OPERATING LOSS MODIFICATION Exempt Income Total Income If a net operating loss deduction is allowed for this tax year, and if, in the tax year of the corresponding net operating loss, the total addition modifications exceeded total subtraction modifications, enter the smaller of: (a) The net operating loss deduction attributable to the loss year (the tax year in which the net operating loss occurred); or (b) The cumulative net operating loss deductions attributable to the loss year that are allowed for this tax year and all prior tax years plus the net addition modification (amount that addition modification exceed the subtraction modifications) for the loss year minus the total net operating loss for the loss year. X Expense Items = Reduction to Exempt Income The principal expense item in this formula is interest expense; however, the Department of Revenue may include other expense items because of their direct relationship to the production of exempt income. The taxpayer may propose an alternative method provided that it properly reflects the amount of related expenses. Enter on Line 1 the net amount of Line 1a minus Line 1b. LINE 2 - FEDERALLY TAXABLE MISSOURI EXEMPT OBLIGATION The above items are each considered to be a positive amount for purposes of this calculation. If the result of combining amounts is negative, enter zero.

Enter the exempt amount on Line 2 and provide documentation with the return. If the total net operating loss deduction for this tax year consists of net operating losses from more than one tax year, calculate the modifications separately for each loss and enter the total.

Federal Broadband Grant Income Tax Subtraction - Taxpayers can now receive a subtraction from their federal taxable income of 100% of the federal grant money they receive, for the purpose of providing or expanding broadband internet to the areas of the state that are deemed to be lacking broadband internet access. This subtraction only applies to grant funds received on or after August 28, 2023, and only applies to the extent the granted funds are included in federal taxable income. You must submit a statement, and all federal schedule(s) with your Missouri Form MO-1120 to claim this deduction (Section 143.121, RSMo).

LINE 6 Enter on Line 9 any applicable net operating loss carryback that was previously treated as an addition modification on the Missouri return because the net operating loss was carried back more than two years from the loss year on the federal return. For example, any applicable 2018 through 2021 NOL carryback that was previously treated as an addition modification on the Missouri return for the 2013 through 2017 tax years. Do not enter a loss amount that has previously been reported on Line 9 for a prior tax year. Do not enter any loss amount if the tax year for which this return is filed is more than twenty years past the year of the initial loss. Do not enter any loss amount which was treated as an addition modification pursuant to (Section 143.121.2(4), RSMo), on or before June 18, 2002. (Section 143.121.2(4), RSMo).

A separate Form MO-1120 must be filed for each amendment reason. If there is more than one loss year carryback, a separate Form MO-1120 must be filed for each loss year. For example, if you have an IRS audit or federal correction that in­cludes a Net Operating Loss, one amended return must be filed for the federal audit and a separate amended return must be filed for the NOL. GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS Complete the Form MO-MS if taxable corporation income is not 100 percent from Missouri sources. This form must be completed even if Missouri taxable corporation income is zero. If the corporation owns a percentage of a partnership(s), the partnership factors must be multiplied by the corporation’s percentage of ownership, and then added into the corporation’s apportionment factors. All taxpayers that do not qualify for a Special Method (Methods Three through Seven) must choose Method Two A - Receipts Factor Apportionment. The amended return must contain a complete explanation of the reason(s) for filing the claim or amendment. You must attach any required schedules or forms to support your claim. If the amended return is submitted without the proper attachments it may be partially or totally denied. APPORTIONMENT ELECTION Missouri statutes provide a number of methods for determining Missouri taxable income from Missouri sources. Choose only the appropriate one of the listed methods and enter the method number on Form MO-1120, Line 9 Method. Once an election has been made, it cannot be changed with respect to the same taxable period. Part 5 - Amended Return Loss Carryback or Federal Tax Credit Carryback Complete when there is a loss carryback or credit carryback. A loss would include an NOL, capital loss, or product liability loss. A loss carryback is required to be filed by the 15th day of the 39th month following the end of the loss year (Section 143.801.6, RSMo). Lines 2 and 3 should reflect the total net operating loss or capital loss carryback. METHOD TWO A Receipts Factor Apportionment — Section 143.455.2, RSMo. See instructions for completing Method Two A. Line 4 should reflect the difference between the original and amended federal income tax deductions for Missouri Form MO-1120, Line 7. A separate Form MO-1120 must be filed for each loss year carryback. METHOD THREE Transportation — Section 143.455.14, RSMo. Note: Missouri does not allow an NOL to be carried back more than two years; the amount of an NOL carried back more than two years results in an addition modification for the carryback year. (Section 143.121.2(4), RSMo). An NOL disallowed (added back) on this basis may be carried forward for 20 years from the loss year. See Form MO-1120, Part 2, Line 9. METHOD FOUR Railroad — Section 143.455.15, RSMo. METHOD FIVE Interstate Bridge — Section 143.455.16, RSMo. ASSEMBLE YOUR RETURN METHOD SIX Assemble any forms and schedules behind Form MO-1120. If you have supporting documentation, arrange in the same order of the forms and schedules they support and attach behind the schedule they support. Telephone and Telegraph — Section 143.455.17, RSMo. METHOD SEVEN RELEASE OF INFORMATION This method can be used only with prior approval from the Missouri Director of Revenue or pursuant to a Missouri regulation creating an alternative industry-specific method under Section 143.455.13(1), RSMo. The Department of Revenue can only release confidential information to corporate officers, authorized individuals hav­ing power of attorney, the preparer, or any member of their firm, or if internally prepared, any member of the internal staff, when the authorization box is checked. When the authorization box is checked, this authorizes the Missouri Director of Revenue or delegate to discuss this return and attachments with the preparer whose signature appears on the Form MO-1120 or with any member of their firm or if internally prepared, any member of the internal staff. Receipts Factor Apportionment Instructions - Step 1 A taxpayer must have income from business activity taxable by this state and at least one other state to apportion and allocate income. Income from business activity includes apportionable and nonapportionable income. The taxpayer’s income will be allocated and apportioned according to Section 143.455. The taxpayer must determine which portion of the taxpayer’s federal taxable income constitutes “nonapportionable income.” The various items of nonapportionable income are directly allocated to specific states, which may include Missouri. The apportionable income of the taxpayer is divided between states by using the receipts factor. The sum of the items of nonapportionable income directly allocated to this state, plus the amount of apportionable income attributable to this state by the apportionment formula constitutes the amount of the taxpayer’s Preliminary Missouri taxable income. The Department of Revenue strives to assist taxpayers in their inquiries; however, the Department of Revenue is bound by confidentiality statutes dealing with the release of confidential information. If you are contacting the Department of Revenue regarding financial information of a corporation, refund issuance, or filing status of a corporation, you will be asked to identify your position with the corporation. If you are an officer of the corporation, an authorized individual having power of attorney, the preparer or any member of their firm, or if internally prepared, any member of the internal staff, the authorization box on the form must have been checked for the Department of Revenue to release financial information. To prevent delays in answering questions, you must provide the Department of Revenue with a Form 2827, Power of Attorney, prior to making the inquiry. This also applies to employees of the corporation. This form must list the tax type, the tax form, and tax year(s) in question. These procedures are to protect the taxpayer from unauthorized disclosure of financial records. To update corporate officers, send Form 126 : Taxation Division, P.O. Box 3300, Jefferson City, MO 65105-3300 or email at [email protected]. Items of nonapportionable income may be reported on Form MO-MS or Form MO-NAI only to the extent such items are included in Form MO-1120, Line 8 (Taxable Income – All Sources). For example, an item of nonapportionable income that was added on Form MO-1120, Line 3, would also be reported on Form MO-MS and Form MO-NAI. If all or part of an item of nonapportionable income was subtracted on Form MO-1120, Line 5, do not report the amount of nonapportionable income so subtracted on Form MO-MS or Form MO-NAI. FORM MO-MS INSTRUCTIONS This information is for guidance only and does not state the complete law. 10 *14000000001* 14000000001 in Missouri by the purchaser. Receipts from the rental, lease, or license of tangible personal property are in this state to the extent that the tangible personal property is located in Missouri. APPORTIONABLE AND NONAPPORTIONABLE INCOME DEFINED • Real Property. Receipts from the sale, rental, lease, or license of real property are in this state to the extent that the real property is located in Missouri. “Apportionable income” means all income that is apportionable under the Constitution of the United States and is not allocated under the laws of this state. Apportionable income includes, but is not limited to, income arising from transactions and activity in the regular course of the corporation’s trade or business. Apportionable income also includes, but is not limited to, income arising from tangible and intangible property if the acquisition, management, employment, development, or disposition of the property is or was related to the operation of the corporation’s trade or business. “Nonapportionable income” means all income other than apportionable income. The classification of income by the labels customarily given them, such as interest, dividends, rents, and royalties, is not conclusive in determining whether the income is apportionable or nonapportionable income. Nonapportionable income will be considered only if a detailed Form MO-NAI is completed and attached. • Services. Receipts from the sale of a service are in this state if and to the extent that the ultimate beneficiary is in Missouri. Generally, the ultimate beneficiary of the service (except for bartering and similar in-kind transactions) is the entity that receives benefit or value from, but does not also receive monetary or credit-based payment in direct connection with, the service at issue (other than refunds, cashback, or discountequivalents). In the event that the ultimate beneficiary is a corporate or other entity that owns or operates in locations in multiple states, and the extent to which the ultimate beneficiary is located in Missouri cannot reasonably be determined, the extent to which the ultimate beneficiary is located in Missouri may be reasonably approximated as follows: • The ratio of the number of Missouri locations, which the ultimate beneficiary owns or operates in, to the number of such locations throughout the United States. TAXABLE IN ANOTHER STATE • If the ratio above cannot reasonably be determined, then the ratio of one to the number of states in which the ultimate beneficiary operates. A taxpayer is “taxable in another state” if it meets either one of two tests: (a) if by reason of business activity in another state the taxpayer is subject to one of these taxes: a net income tax, a franchise tax measured by net income, a franchise tax for the privilege of doing business, or a corporate stock tax; or • If the ratio above cannot reasonably be determined, then use fifty percent (50%). A taxpayer will not be subject to an addition to tax for negligence in relying upon this approximation of fifty percent (50%). (b) if another state has jurisdiction to subject the taxpayer to a net income tax, regardless of whether or not that state imposes such a tax on the taxpayer. RENTAL, LEASE, OR LICENSE OF INTANGIBLE PROPERTY Receipts from the rental, lease, or license of intangible property are in this state to the extent that the intangible property is used in Missouri. Intangible property that is rented, leased, or licensed and then used in this state in marketing a good or service to a consumer is used in this state if the marketed good or service is purchased by a consumer in this state. Franchise fees or franchise royalties received for the rent, lease, license, or use of a trade name, trademark, service mark, or franchise system, or the right to conduct business activity in a specific geographic area, are receipts in this state to the extent that the franchise is located in this state. The first test is applicable only if a taxpayer carries on business activities in another state.

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.
