Ordering and limit reductions for certain credits--consolidated return--transfers of credits--effect of repeal of corporation franchise tax--pass through of tax credits by S corporation bank.

148.064. 1. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, this section shall determine the ordering and limit reductions for certain taxes and tax credits which may be used as credits against various taxes paid or payable by banking institutions. Except as adjusted in subsections 2, 3 and 6 of this section, such credits shall be applied in the following order until used against:

(1) The tax on banks determined under subdivision (2) of subsection 2 of section 148.030;

(2) The tax on banks determined under subdivision (1) of subsection 2 of section 148.030;

(3) The state income tax in section 143.071.

2. The tax credits permitted against taxes payable pursuant to subdivision (2) of subsection 2 of section 148.030 shall be utilized first and include taxes referenced in subdivisions (2) and (3) of subsection 1 of this section, which shall be determined without reduction for any tax credits identified in subsection 5 of this section which are used to reduce such taxes. Where a banking institution subject to this section joins in the filing of a consolidated state income tax return under chapter 143, the credit allowed under this section for state income taxes payable under chapter 143 shall be determined based upon the consolidated state income tax liability of the group and allocated to a banking institution, without reduction for any tax credits identified in subsection 5 of this section which are used to reduce such consolidated taxes as provided in chapter 143.

3. The taxes referenced in subdivisions (2) and (3) of subsection 1 of this section may be reduced by the tax credits in subsection 5 of this section without regard to any adjustments in subsection 2 of this section.

4. To the extent that certain tax credits which the taxpayer is entitled to claim are transferable, such transferability may include transfers among such taxpayers who are members of a single consolidated income tax return, and this subsection shall not impact other tax credit transferability.

5. For the purpose of this section, the tax credits referred to in subsections 2 and 3 shall include tax credits available for economic development, low-income housing and neighborhood assistance which the taxpayer is entitled to claim for the year, including by way of example and not of limitation, tax credits pursuant to the following sections: section 32.115, section 100.286, and sections 135.110, 135.225, 135.352 and 135.403.

6. For tax returns filed on or after January 1, 2001, including returns based on income in the year 2000, and after, a banking institution shall be entitled to an annual tax credit equal to one-sixtieth of one percent of its outstanding shares and surplus employed in this state if the outstanding shares and surplus exceed one million dollars, determined in the same manner as in section 147.010. This tax credit shall be taken as a dollar-for-dollar credit against the bank tax provided for in subdivision (2) of subsection 2 of section 148.030; if such bank tax was already reduced to zero by other credits, then against the corporate income tax provided for in chapter 143.

*7. In the event the corporation franchise tax in chapter 147 is repealed by the general assembly, there shall also be a reduction in the taxation of banks as follows: in lieu of the loss of the corporation franchise tax credit reduction in subdivision (1) of subsection 2 of section 148.030, the bank shall receive a tax credit equal to one and one-half percent of net income as determined in this chapter. This subsection shall take effect at the same time the corporation franchise tax in chapter 147 is repealed.

8. An S corporation bank or bank holding company that otherwise qualifies to distribute tax credits to its shareholders shall pass through any tax credits referred to in subsection 5 of this section to its shareholders as otherwise provided for in subsection 9 of section 143.471 with no reductions or limitations resulting from the transfer through such S corporation, and on the same terms originally made available to the original taxpayer, subject to any original dollar or percentage limitations on such credits, and when such S corporation is the original taxpayer, treating such S corporation as having not elected Subchapter S status.

9. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, in the event the corporation franchise tax in chapter 147 is repealed by the general assembly, after such repeal all Missouri taxes of any nature and type imposed directly or used as a tax credit against the bank's taxes shall be passed through to the S corporation bank or bank holding company shareholder in the form otherwise permitted by law, except for the following:

(1) Credits for taxes on real estate and tangible personal property owned by the bank and held for lease or rental to others;

(2) Contributions paid pursuant to the unemployment compensation tax law of Missouri; or

(3) State and local sales and use taxes collected by the bank on its sales of tangible personal property and the services enumerated in chapter 144.

Tax assessed, when, supplemental assessment.

148.068. 1. The amount of tax which is shown to be due on the return, including revisions for mathematical errors, shall be deemed to be assessed on the date of filing of the return including any amended returns showing an increase of tax. In the case of a return properly filed without the computation of the tax, the tax computed by the director shall be deemed to be assessed on the date when payment is due. If a notice of deficiency has been mailed, the amount of the deficiency shall be deemed to be assessed sixty days after the notice of deficiency was mailed if no protest is filed; or, if a protest is filed, then upon the later of the date when the determination of the director or the administrative hearing commission becomes final. Any amount paid as a tax or in respect of a tax shall be deemed to be assessed upon the date of receipt of payment, notwithstanding any other provision of sections 148.010 to 148.110.

2. If the mode or time for the assessment of any tax under sections 148.010 to 148.110 including interest, additions to tax, and penalties is not otherwise provided for, the director of revenue may establish the same by regulation.

3. The director may, at any time within the period prescribed for assessment, make a supplemental assessment, subject to the provisions of section 148.060 where applicable, whenever it is found that any assessment is imperfect or incomplete in any material aspect.

2. If a taxpayer omits from its return an amount of income that is properly includable in its gross income which is in excess of twenty-five percent of the amount of gross income stated in its return, a notice of deficiency may be mailed to the taxpayer within six years after the return was filed. For purposes of this subsection, in determining the amount omitted, there shall not be taken into account any amount which is omitted in the return if such amount is disclosed in the return, or in a statement attached to the return, in a manner adequate to apprise the director of the nature and amount of such item.

3. If no return is filed or a false and fraudulent return is filed with intent to evade the tax imposed by sections 148.010 to 148.110, a notice of deficiency may be mailed to the taxpayer at any time.

Where, before the expiration of the time prescribed in this section for the assessment of a deficiency, both the director and the taxpayer shall have consented in writing to its assessment after such time, the deficiency may be assessed at any time prior to the expiration of the period agreed upon. The period so agreed upon may be extended by subsequent agreement in writing made before the expiration of the period previously agreed upon.

Taxpayer in other state taxable, when--apportionment of income, manner--property factor, defined--payroll factor, defined--deposits factor, defined.

A taxpayer is taxable in another state if, by reason of business activity in another state, it is subject to and did pay one of the types of taxes specified: 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. The taxpayer must carry on business activities in another state. If the taxpayer voluntarily files and pays one or more of such taxes when not required to do so by the laws of that state or pays a minimal fee for qualification, organization or for the privilege of doing business in that state, but does not actually engage in business activities in that state, and does not have business facilities in that state or does actually engage in some activity, not sufficient for nexus, and the minimum tax bears no relation to the taxpayer's activities with such state, the taxpayer is not taxable in another state.

2. When the income of a taxpayer is derived from business activity conducted within and without this state and the business activity is taxable in another state, then income shall be apportioned to this state by multiplying the gross income minus the deduction in section 148.040 by a fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the property factor, the payroll factor, and the deposits factor, and the denominator of which is three reduced by the number of factors which have a denominator of zero.

3. For purposes of subsection 2 of this section, the property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used in this state during the income year, and the denominator is the average value of all the taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used during the income year, except under this subsection, any property that the bank acquired in settlement of debts and is held for sale under section 362.165 or section 29 Title 12 United States Code. Property owned by the taxpayer shall be valued at its original cost. Property rented by the taxpayer is valued at eight times the net annual rental rate. The net annual rental rate is the total rental rate paid by the taxpayer, less total annual rental rates received by the taxpayer from subrentals. The average value of property owned by the taxpayer shall be determined by averaging the values at the beginning and ending of the income year, but the director of revenue may require averaging by monthly values if reasonably required to reflect the average value of the taxpayer's property for the income year.

4. For purposes of subsection 2 of this section, the payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the total amount paid in this state during the income year by the taxpayer for compensation, and the denominator of which is the total compensation paid everywhere during the income year by the taxpayer. Compensation is paid in this state if:

(1) The employee's service is performed entirely within this state;

(2) The employee's service is performed both within and without this state, but the service performed without this state is incidental to the employee's service within this state; or

(3) The employee's services are performed both within and without this state, and:

(a) The employee's base of operations is in this state; or

(b) There is no base of operations in any state in which some part of the service is performed, but the place from which the service is directed or controlled is in this state; or

(c) The base of operations or the place from which the service is directed or controlled is not in any state in which some part of the service is performed but the employee's residence is in this state.

5. For purposes of subsection 2 of this section, the deposits factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the average of deposits recorded on the books at the main banking house and branches of the taxpayer within this state during the income year, and the denominator of which is the average deposits recorded on the books everywhere by the taxpayer during the income year. Such average shall be determined by averaging deposits as of the first of the year with deposits as of the last day of the year.

Returns, assessment of tax, procedure--notice to company--taxes, how paid--suspension of delinquents, apportionment of money--county, defined.

148.330. 1. Every such company shall, on or before the first day of March in each year, make a return, verified by the affidavit of its president and secretary, or other authorized officers, to the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration stating the amount of all premiums received on account of policies issued in this state by the company, whether in cash or in notes, during the year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. Upon receipt of such returns the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration shall verify the same and certify the amount of tax due from the various companies on the basis and at the rates provided in section 148.320, and shall certify the same to the director of revenue together with the amount of the quarterly installments to be made as provided in subsection 2 of this section, on or before the thirtieth day of April of each year.

2. Beginning January 1, 1983, the amount of the tax due for that calendar year and each succeeding calendar year thereafter shall be paid in four approximately equal estimated quarterly installments, and a fifth reconciling installment. The first four installments shall be based upon the tax for the immediately preceding taxable year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The quarterly installments shall be made on the first day of March, the first day of June, the first day of September and the first day of December. Immediately after receiving certification from the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration of the amount of tax due from the various companies the director of revenue shall notify and assess each company the amount of taxes on its premiums for the calendar year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The director of revenue shall also notify and assess each company the amount of the estimated quarterly installments to be made for the calendar year. If the amount of the actual tax due for any year exceeds the total of the installments made for such year, the balance of the tax due shall be paid on the first day of June of the year following, together with the regular quarterly payment due at that time. If the total amount of the tax actually due is less than the total amount of the installments actually paid, the amount by which the amount paid exceeds the amount due shall be credited against the tax for the following year and deducted from the quarterly installment otherwise due on the first day of June. If the March first quarterly installment made by a company is less than the amount assessed by the director of revenue, the difference will be due on June first, but no interest will accrue to the state on the difference unless the amount paid by the company is less than eighty percent of one-fourth of the total amount of tax assessed by the director of revenue for the immediately preceding taxable year. The state treasurer, upon receiving the moneys paid as a tax upon such premiums to the director of revenue, shall place the moneys to the credit of a fund to be known as "The County Stock Insurance Fund", which is hereby created and established. The county stock insurance fund shall be included in the calculation of total state revenue pursuant to article X, section 18, of the Missouri Constitution.

3. If the estimated quarterly tax installments are not so paid, the director of revenue shall certify such fact to the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration who shall thereafter suspend such delinquent company or companies from the further transaction of business in this state until such taxes shall be paid and such companies shall be subject to the provisions of sections 148.410 to 148.461.

4. On or before the first day of September of each year the commissioner of administration shall apportion all moneys in the county stock insurance fund to the general revenue fund of the state, to the county treasurer and to the treasurer of the school district in which the principal office of the company paying the same is located. All premium tax credits described in sections 135.500 to 135.529 and sections 348.430 and 348.432 shall only reduce the amounts apportioned to the general revenue fund of the state and shall not reduce any moneys apportioned to any county treasurer or to the treasurer of the school district in which the principal office of the company paying the same is located. Apportionments shall be made in the same ratio which the rates of levy for the same year for state purposes, for county purposes, and for all school district purposes, bear to each other; provided that any proceeds from such tax for prior years remaining on hand in the hands of the county collector or county treasurer undistributed on the effective date of sections 148.310 to 148.460 and any proceeds of such tax for prior years collected thereafter shall be distributed and paid in accordance with the provisions of such sections. Whenever the word "county" occurs herein it shall be construed to include the city of St. Louis.

Every such company or association shall, on or before the first day of March in each year, make a return, verified by the affidavit of its president and secretary or other authorized officers, to the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration stating the amount of all premiums received on account of policies issued in this state by such company, whether in cash or in notes, during the year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding.

2. Beginning January 1, 1983, the amount of the tax due for that calendar year and each succeeding calendar year thereafter shall be paid in four approximately equal estimated quarterly installments and a fifth reconciling installment. The first four installments shall be based upon the tax assessed for the immediately preceding taxable year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The quarterly installment shall be made on the first day of March, the first day of June, the first day of September, and the first day of December. Immediately after receiving from the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration, certification of the amount of tax due from the various companies, the director of revenue shall notify and assess each company the amount of taxes on its premiums for the calendar year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The director of revenue shall also notify and assess each company the amount of the estimated quarterly installments to be made for the calendar year. If the amount of the actual tax due for any year exceeds the total of the installments made for such year, the balance of the tax due shall be paid on the first day of June of the following year, together with the regular quarterly installment due at that time. If the total amount of the tax actually due is less than the total amount of the installments actually paid, the amount by which the amount paid exceeds the amount due shall be credited against the tax for the following year and deducted from the quarterly installment otherwise due on the first day of June. If the March first quarterly installment made by a company is less than the amount assessed by the director of revenue, the difference will be due on June first, but no interest will accrue to the state on the difference unless the amount paid by the company is less than eighty percent of one-fourth of the total amount of tax assessed by the director of revenue for the immediately preceding taxable year. If the estimated quarterly tax installments are not so paid, the director of revenue shall certify such fact to the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration who shall thereafter suspend such delinquent company or companies from the further transaction of business in this state until such taxes shall be paid, and such companies shall be subject to the provisions of sections 148.410 to 148.461.

3. Upon receiving such money from the director of revenue, the state treasurer shall receipt one-half thereof into the general revenue fund of the state, and he shall place the remainder of such tax to the credit of a fund to be known as "The County Foreign Insurance Tax Fund", which is hereby created and established. All premium tax credits described in sections 135.500 to 135.529 shall only reduce the amount of moneys received by the general revenue fund of this state and shall not reduce any moneys received by the county foreign insurance tax fund.

Returns, assessment of tax, procedure--notice to company--taxes, how paid--suspension of delinquents--disposition of money.

148.380. 1. Every such company, on or before the first day of March in each year, shall make a return verified by the affidavit of its president and secretary, or other chief officers, to the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration, stating the amount of all direct premiums received by it from policyholders in this state, whether in cash or in notes, during the year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. Upon receipt of such returns the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration shall verify the same and certify the amount of the tax due from the various companies on the basis and* at the rate provided in section 148.370, taking into consideration deductions and credits allowed by law, and shall certify the same to the director of revenue together with the amount of the quarterly installments to be made as provided in subsection 2 of this section, on or before the thirtieth day of April of each year.

2. Beginning January 1, 1983, the amount of the tax due for that calendar year and each succeeding calendar year thereafter shall be paid in four approximately equal estimated quarterly installments, and a fifth reconciling installment. The first four installments shall be based upon the tax for the immediately** preceding taxable year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The quarterly installments shall be made on the first day of March, the first day of June, the first day of September and the first day of December. Immediately after receiving certification from the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration of the amount of tax due from the various companies, the director of revenue shall notify and assess each company the amount of taxes on its premiums for the calendar year ending on the thirty-first day of December, next preceding. The director of revenue shall also notify and assess each company the amount of the estimated quarterly installments to be made for the calendar year. If the amount of the actual tax due for any year exceeds the total of the installments made for such year, the balance of the tax due shall be paid on the first day of June of the year following, together with the regular quarterly payment due at that time. If the total amount of the tax actually due is less than the total amount of the installments actually paid, the amount by which the amount paid exceeds the amount due shall be credited against the tax for the following year and deducted from the quarterly installment otherwise due on the first day of June. If the March first quarterly installment made by a company is less than the amount assessed by the director of revenue, the difference will be due on June first, but no interest will accrue to the state on the difference unless the amount paid by the company is less than eighty percent of one-fourth of the total amount of tax assessed by the director of revenue for the immediately preceding taxable year.

3. If the estimated quarterly tax installments are not so paid, the director of revenue shall notify the director of the department of insurance, financial institutions and professional registration who shall thereupon suspend such delinquent company from the further transaction of business in this state until such taxes shall be paid, and such companies shall be subject to the provisions of sections 148.410 to 148.461.

4. Upon receipt of the money the state treasurer shall receipt one-half thereof into the general revenue fund of the state, and one-half thereof to the credit of the county foreign insurance fund for the purposes set forth in section 148.360.

Unless rejected by the general assembly by April 1, 2003, for all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2003, a deduction for examination fees which exceeds an insurance company's or association's premium tax liability for the same tax year shall not be refundable, but may be carried forward to any subsequent tax year, not to exceed five years, until the full deduction is claimed; except that, notwithstanding the provisions of section 148.380, if any deduction is claimed through the carryforward provisions of this section, it shall be credited wholly against the general revenue fund and shall not cause a reduction in revenue to the county foreign insurance fund.

There is imposed upon each member of any such association an annual tax equal to two percent of the taxable portion of the dividends declared and paid by the association, in the preceding year, on the stock of the association held by any member, which shall be the annual yield from the account. The taxable portion of these dividends shall be that proportion thereof equal to the proportion of the gross income of the association, for the dividend year, derived from notes and mortgages to which the association holds legal title, to its entire gross income.

148.630. 1. "Gross income" shall include all gains, profits, earnings and other income of the taxpayer from whatever sources derived during the income period, including but not limited to interest from obligations issued by the United States government or any political subdivision or any instrumentality thereof, or any state or political subdivision thereof, or issued by any foreign country or nation or political subdivision thereof; all rents, compensation for services, commissions, brokerage and other fees; all gains or profits from the sale or other disposition of any property, real or personal, tangible or intangible; and all recoveries on losses sustained in the ordinary course of business subsequent to May 25, 1982; provided, however, that recoveries on such losses sustained during any prior income period within which the deductions, as permitted by subsection 3 of this section, exceeded the taxpayer's gross income for said income period, computed in accordance with this subsection, shall not be included in the taxpayer's gross income for the income period in which they were received to the extent of such excess. Interest or dividends received on shares of* stock of any wholly owned subsidiary of associations or credit unions shall not be included in gross income.

2. "Net income" means gross income as defined in subsection 1 of this section minus the deductions allowed in subsection 3 of this section.

3. In computing net income there shall be allowed as deductions all ordinary and necessary expenses paid or incurred by the taxpayer during the income period in carrying on its trade or business. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, there shall be allowed as deductions a reasonable allowance for salaries and other compensation for personal services actually rendered; rents, repairs, bad debts; interest; dividends; cost of insurance and advertising; all taxes paid or accrued during the income period to the United States and all taxes paid or accrued on real estate or tangible personal property owned by the taxpayer and held for lease or rental to others, to the state of Missouri, or any political subdivision thereof; all contributions paid or accrued pursuant to the unemployment compensation law of Missouri; reasonable allowances for depreciation and depletion; amortization of premiums on bonds, debentures, notes or other securities or evidences of indebtedness; a reasonable allowance for payments or contributions to or on account of any pension or retirement fund or plan for its officers or employees; contributions to any corporation, association or fund organized and operated exclusively for religious, charitable, scientific, literary or educational purposes, no part of the net earnings of which inure to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual; losses from the sale or disposition of any property, real or personal, tangible or intangible; and all other losses sustained during the income period not compensated for by insurance.

4. Net income shall be computed in accordance with the method of accounting regularly employed in keeping the books of the taxpayer, unless such method does not clearly reflect the income, in which case the computation shall be made in accordance with such method as in the opinion of the director does clearly reflect the income.

5. When the income of a taxpayer is derived from business activity conducted within and without this state and the business activity is taxable in another state, then income shall be apportioned to this state by multiplying the gross income minus the deduction in subsection 3 of this section by a fraction, the numerator of which is the sum of the property factor, the payroll factor, the receivables factor and the deposits factor, and the denominator of which is four reduced by the number of factors which have a denominator of zero.

Property owned by the taxpayer shall be valued at its original cost. Property rented by the taxpayer is valued at eight times the net annual rental rate. The net annual rental rate is the total rental rate paid by the taxpayer, less total annual rental rates received by the taxpayer from subrentals. The average value of property owned by the taxpayer shall be determined by averaging the values at the beginning and ending of the income year, but the director of revenue may require averaging by monthly values if reasonably required to reflect the average value of the taxpayer's property for the income year.

7. For purposes of subsection 5 of this section, the payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the total amount paid in this state during the income year by the taxpayer for compensation, and the denominator of which is the total compensation paid everywhere during the income year by the taxpayer. Compensation is paid in this state if:

(1) The employee's service is performed entirely within this state;

(2) The employee's service is performed both within and without this state, but the service performed without this state is incidental to the employee's service within this state; or

(3) The employee's services are performed both within and without this state, and:

(a) The employee's base of operations is in this state; or

(b) There is no base of operations in any state in which some part of the service is performed, but the place from which the service is directed or controlled is in this state; or

(c) The base of operations or the place from which the service is directed or controlled is not in any state in which some part of the service is performed but the employee's residence is in this state.

8. For purposes of subsection 5 of this section, the receivables factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the average of contract obligations owing to the taxpayer on an open account held by an office, facility or branch within this state during the income year, and the denominator is the average of contract obligations owing to the taxpayer everywhere during the income year.

9. For purposes of subsection 5 of this section, the deposits factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is the average of deposits held by an office, facility or branch of the taxpayer within this state during the income year, and the denominator of which is the average deposits held everywhere by the taxpayer during the income year.

He shall maintain such funds in institutions, savings associations and credit unions selected by him and approved by the governor, state treasurer and state auditor. Thereafter he shall, until the time set for the distribution of the net proceeds of the tax, invest all moneys within the fund in the same manner as state funds not needed for the immediate expenses of the state are invested; provided, that in all instances in which the state treasurer may use or invest in banking institutions, the director of revenue may use or invest in credit unions or in associations. All interest earned upon the moneys so invested shall be deposited in the respective credit union or savings associations tax fund and all such interest shall be returned to the various county treasurers within thirty days of tax distribution. Each county shall receive that percentage of the total interest earned as its share of the tax paid bears to the total amount of the tax received by the director of revenue. A statement of the exact amount of interest due each political subdivision in such county determined by the pro rata share of the proceeds of the tax received by such political subdivision bears to the proceeds of the tax received by the county shall accompany each payment.

The political subdivisions within which the said office or offices are situated shall share the tax hereby imposed upon the same basis that the dollar amounts of the deposits or accounts bear to the total dollar amount of the deposits or accounts of the association, and the director of revenue shall allocate the tax collected accordingly; provided, that if a taxpayer has an office or offices outside the state of Missouri, the total of the dollar amount of deposits and accounts at an office or offices outside the state of Missouri shall be excluded in determining the total deposits and accounts of the taxpayer. A statement of the exact amount due each political subdivision as determined by applying the local rates of levy to the proceeds of the tax shall accompany each payment. The several county treasurers and the treasurer of St. Louis City are hereby directed to distribute all amounts so received from the director of revenue according to the allocations contained in the statements made by the director of revenue.
