This webinar will detail the most frequent and recent additions and subtractions imposed by states when calculating taxable business income. Our panel of state and local tax experts will give examples of these required adjustments in specific states so that SALT advisers are aware of these when calculating and preparing multistate tax returns.


States vary in their acceptance of federal provisions of the IRC. Some use rolling conformity and mirror federal guidelines to limit compliance issues and costs. Others use a fixed date approach and comply with new federal rules as of a specific date. All states adopt their own unique rules, and none conform fully with federal legislation. Most states do, however, use federal taxable income as a starting point and incorporate addbacks and subtractions to arrive at state taxable income.

Decoupling is the practice of adopting the overall federal provisions with the exception of certain items that are eliminated. 168(k) bonus depreciation has been a historically popular addition for states to decouple. The plethora of recent tax acts has left SALT professionals with even more addbacks and subtractions to consider on state returns. States have only recently decided to what degree they will allow recent tax additions and changes, including the 199A deduction, accelerated depreciation, net operating loss deductions, and interest expense deductions under 163(j).

Listen as our authoritative SALT panel discusses the most common addbacks and subtractions states require to calculate state taxable income and best practices for handling and tracking these adjustments.
