Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI)
Based on a review of relevant provisions of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) and LMCO 110.01, income reported on the federal return attributable to Global Intangible Low-Taxed Income (GILTI) is excludable from the net profit for Occupational License tax purposes. Any expenses related to foreign income as determined by IRC Section 250 and reported on IRS Form 8993 must also be excluded from the Adjusted Net Profit. Receipts derived from GILTI are not to be included in the calculation of the receipt factor for purposes of determining the average apportionment percentage.
A copy of the federal Schedule C and Form 8993 must be attached to the Occupational License tax return for any taxpayer who has reported GILTI on the federal tax return.
