New York State has released Form IT-204-CP—its tax year 2015 proprietary corporate partner Schedule K-1—and the related instructions. Partnerships have multiple new reporting requirements and determinations to make with respect to classifying income and expense items reportable to their Article 9-A partners, based on 2015 New York corporate tax reform.
Many of the changes to Form IT-204-CP—nearly double in size from six pages for 2014 to 11 pages for 2015—relate to receipts apportionment factor items and to identifying the proper “bucket” for various types of receipts.
For other types of receipts, both numerator and denominator amounts must be disclosed, thus requiring market-based (customer) sourcing determinations to be made at the partnership level. In addition, gross proceeds on sales of certain financial instruments are also required to be disclosed, along with the proper sourcing determinations.
The new Form IT-204-CP also contemplates the qualified financial instrument (QFI) election, which may be made at the corporate level, as partnerships must indicate by checking the box whether there is at least one financial instrument that was actually marked-to-market.
Notably, partnerships are not required to report “everywhere” amounts related to dividends and gains from stock sales (of the non-investment capital variety) and partnership interest sales. While the general receipts apportionment treatment of such receipts is exclusion from the factor altogether, this information may be needed by certain corporate partners that choose to make the 8% QFI election. As such, partnerships with non-investment capital stock may want to consider providing this information to corporate partners anyway.
