Amendment of the Corporate Income Tax Regulation to Add a Section Regarding Intangible Expenses Paid to Related Entities
General Information
Action Summary Legislation in the 2004 Session of the General Assembly (2004 Acts of Assembly, Special Session I, Chapter 3) amended the corporate income tax law by adding Code of Va. § 58.1-402 B(8) and (9), which require the corporation to add back any royalties and interest paid to a related entity in such a situation. The amendments contain a number of safe harbors to prevent the addition from applying to legitimate transactions that are not for the purpose of tax avoidance. In addition, if a corporation does not qualify for one of the safe harbors, but believes that an addition is unreasonable as applied to its legitimate transactions, it may apply to the Tax Commissioner for a waiver of the addition requirement and a refund of tax paid on the amounts added back to Virginia taxable income. This regulatory action will add a regulation section interpreting Code of Va. § 58.1-402 B (8) & (9).
