2017 Instructions for Form FTB 3809

Targeted Tax Area Businesses

References in these instructions are to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) as of January 1, 2015, and to the California Revenue and Taxation Code (R&TC).

What’s New

Principal Business Activity Codes

The Principal Business Activity Codes, located within these instructions, have been updated and revised to reflect updates to the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS).

General Information

In general, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2015, California law conforms to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) as of January 1, 2015. However, there are continuing differences between California and federal law. When California conforms to federal tax law changes, we do not always adopt all of the changes made at the federal level. For more information, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for conformity. Additional information can be found in FTB Pub. 1001, Supplemental Guidelines to California Adjustments, the instructions for California Schedule CA (540 or 540NR), and the Business Entity tax booklets.

The instructions provided with California tax forms are a summary of California tax law and are only intended to aid taxpayers in preparing their state income tax returns. We include information that is most useful to the greatest number of taxpayers in the limited space available. It is not possible to include all requirements of the California Revenue and Taxation Code (R&TC) in the instructions. Taxpayers should not consider the instructions as authoritative law.

Targeted Tax Area (TTA) Credits Carryover Period

The portion of any TTA sales or use tax credit or hiring credit remaining for carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, shall be carried over only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, or until the credit is exhausted, whichever occurs first. Any hiring credits generated in the current taxable year for employees hired on or before December 31, 2012, and unusable in the current taxable year, may be carried over to the succeeding 10 taxable years.

Repeal of Geographically Targeted Economic Development Area Tax Incentives

The California legislature repealed and made changes to all of the Geographically Targeted Economic Development Area (G-TEDA) Tax Incentives. Enterprise Zones (EZ) and Local Agency Military Base Recovery Areas (LAMBRA) were repealed on January 1, 2014. The Targeted Tax Areas and Manufacturing Enhancement Areas (MEA) both expired on December 31, 2012. For more information, go to ftb.ca.gov and search for repeal tax incentives.

Single-Sales Factor Formula

R&TC Section 25128.7 requires all business income of an apportioning trade or business, other than an apportioning trade or business under R&TC Section 25128(b), to apportion its business income to California using the single-sales factor formula. For more information, get Schedule R, Apportionment and Allocation of Income, or go to ftb.ca.gov and search for single sales factor. However, business income apportioned to the TTA continues to be based on the property and payroll factors.

Expired Targeted Tax Area

The TTA has expired as of December 31, 2012. Generally, no further TTA incentives can be generated after the expiration date. See below for a discussion on how each incentive expired:

  • TTA Hiring Credit - Taxpayers can no longer generate/incur TTA hiring credits for employees hired on or after January 1, 2013. However, qualified taxpayers can generate/incur TTA hiring credits for qualified employees hired prior to the TTA expiration date for wages paid or incurred within the 60-month period of the TTA hiring credit.
  • TTA Sales or Use Tax Credit - For taxpayers engaged in a trade or business in an expired TTA, the sales or use tax credit is not available for assets purchased and/or placed in service on or after January 1, 2013. Taxpayers can claim the sales or use tax credit carryover from prior years.
  • TTA NOL Carryover Deduction – Taxpayers can no longer generate/incur any TTA NOL for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2013. Taxpayers can claim an NOL carryover deduction from prior years.
Assignment of Credit

Credit earned by members of a combined reporting group may be assigned to an affiliated corporation that is an eligible member of the same combined reporting group. A credit assigned may only be claimed by the affiliated corporation against its tax liability.

For more information, see instructions for Schedule Z, Computation of Credit Limitations, on page 12, Assignment of Credit, or get form FTB 3544, Election to Assign Credit Within Combined Reporting Group, or form FTB 3544A, List of Assigned Credit Received and/or Claimed by Assignee or go to ftb.ca.gov and search for credit assignment.

Minimum Wage

For any employer who employs 25 or fewer employees, the California minimum wage is:

  • $10.00 per hour from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.
  • $10.50 per hour from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.

For any employer who employs 26 or more employees, the California minimum wage is:

Introduction

Economic Development Area (EDA) Tax Incentives

California established four types of EDAs that have related tax incentives. These incentives were established to stimulate growth and development in selected areas that were economically depressed. EDA tax incentives applied only to certain business transactions that were undertaken after an EDA had received final designation from the California Department of Housing & Community Development (HCD). Final designation was when the HCD designated an area to be an EDA. Tax incentives were available to individuals and businesses operating or investing within the geographic boundaries of the following EDAs:

  • Enterprise Zones (repealed on January 1, 2014)
  • Local Agency Military Base Recovery Areas (repealed on January 1, 2014)
  • Manufacturing Enhancement Areas (designation expired on December 31, 2012)
  • Targeted Tax Areas (designation expired on December 31, 2012)

Additional information on other EDAs can be found in the following FTB tax booklets:

  • EZ tax incentives, get FTB 3805Z, Enterprise Zone Business Booklet.
  • LAMBRA tax incentives, get FTB 3807, Local Agency Military Base Recovery Area Business Booklet.
  • MEA hiring credit, get FTB 3808, Manufacturing Enhancement Area Business Booklet.

References in this booklet to the "TTA" are interpreted as "the boundaries of the former TTA as it existed on December 31, 2012."

Reporting Requirement

California statutes require the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) to provide information to the California Legislature regarding the number of businesses using the EDA tax incentives, types of EDA tax incentives being used, and the EDAs in which the businesses are claiming the tax incentives.

Complete items A through I on Side 1 of form FTB 3809, Targeted Tax Area Deduction and Credit Summary, as applicable. This information will be used to meet the FTB’s statutory reporting requirement.

Purpose

This booklet provides specific information on the types of available TTA tax incentives. Taxpayers operating or investing in a business located within a designated TTA may be eligible for the following credit and/or claim the following credit carryover and carryover deduction:

  • Hiring credit
  • Sales or use tax credit carryover
  • NOL carryover deduction

Use this booklet to determine the correct amount of credits and deductions that a business may claim for operating or investing in a business located within a designated TTA. Complete the worksheets in this booklet for each credit or deduction for which the business is eligible. Then enter the total credits and deductions on form FTB 3809.

Note: There is no Worksheet II in this booklet.

Targeted Tax Area Designation

California established the TTA program to stimulate development in a selected economically depressed area of Tulare County. The program offers special tax incentives to entities and individuals located in the Tulare TTA and engaged in a trade or business within the selected Standard Industrial Codes listed on pages 17 through 19 of this booklet.

All of the incorporated cities in Tulare County and portions of the unincorporated areas of Tulare County received final designation as the TTA effective November 1, 1998. The designation was binding for 15 years, commencing from January 1, 1998. Note: The TTA designation expired on December 31, 2012. The incorporated cities in Tulare County are:

  • Cutler-Orosi
  • Dinuba
  • Earliment
  • Exeter
  • Farmersville
  • Goshen
  • Lindsay
  • Pixley
  • Porterville
  • Traver
  • Tulare
  • Visalia
  • Woodlake

For business eligibility or zone related information, including questions regarding TTA geographic boundaries, contact the HCD or the local zone program manager where the business is located. Go to hcd.ca.gov and search for directory of zone contacts to find Directory of Economic Development Areas.

For information that is zone-specific, but not tax-specific, you may contact the HCD. See page 24 for the HCD contact information.

Important Considerations

TTA tax incentives apply only to the following item:

  • Qualified employees hired after November 1, 1998 and prior to the TTA expiration date.
Eligibility

To qualify for the tax incentive described above, a taxpayer must meet both of the following requirements:

  1. Be engaged in a trade or business within the TTA.
  2. Be engaged in a line of business described in Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Codes 2000 to 2099, inclusive; 2200 to 3999, inclusive; 4200 to 4299, inclusive; 4500 to 4599, inclusive; and 4700 to 5199, inclusive, of the SIC Manual published by the United States Office of Management and Budget, 1987 Edition.

In the case of any pass-through entity, the determination of whether a taxpayer is a qualified taxpayer for the hiring credit is made at the entity level. Any hiring credit that is allowed to the pass-through entity is also passed through to the partners or shareholders.

If your business is located within and outside the TTA, see Part II on page 7 for instructions on how to apportion income.

Part I – Credits

Line 1a – Hiring Credit

The TTA has expired as of December 31, 2012. Generally, no further TTA incentives can be generated after the expiration date. Taxpayers can no longer generate/incur TTA hiring credits for employees hired on or after January 1, 2013. However, qualified taxpayers can generate/incur TTA hiring credits for qualified employees hired prior to the TTA expiration date for wages paid or incurred within the 60-month period of the TTA hiring credit.

The portion of any TTA hiring credit remaining for carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, shall be carried over only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, or until the credit is exhausted, whichever occurs first. Any hiring credits generated in the current taxable year for employees hired on or before December 31, 2012, and unusable in the current taxable year, may be carried over to the succeeding 10 taxable years.

Employers hiring qualified employees, were required to obtain VoucherCert 10-07 from the local agency responsible for verifying employee eligibility on or before December 31, 2014. Do not file VoucherCert 10-07 with your tax return. Keep the voucher for your records.For vouchering deadline questions, go to hcd.ca.gov and search for vouchering.

Qualified employers conducting a trade or business within the TTA may claim the hiring credit for a qualified employee. A qualified employee is an individual who meets all of the following:

  • Was hired after November 1, 1998, and before January 1, 2013.
  • Spends at least 90% of his or her work time (for the qualified employer) on activities directly related to the conduct of a trade or business located within the TTA.
  • Performs at least 50% of the work (for the qualified employer) within the boundaries of the TTA.
  • Immediately preceding employment with qualified employer, was any of the following:
    1. A person receiving or eligible to receive subsidized employment, training, or services funded by the federal Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) or its successor.
    2. A person eligible to be a voluntary or mandatory registrant under the Greater Avenues for Independence Act of 1985 (GAIN) or its successor.
    3. A member of a targeted group as defined in the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) or its successor.
    4. An economically disadvantaged individual 14 years of age or older.
    5. A qualified dislocated worker.
    6. A disabled individual eligible for, enrolled in, or who completed a state rehabilitation plan.
    7. A service-connected disabled veteran.
    8. A veteran of the Vietnam era.
    9. A veteran who recently separated from military service.
    10. An ex-offender.
    11. A person eligible for or a recipient of any of the following:
      • Federal Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
      • Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC).
      • Food stamps.
      • State and local general assistance.
    12. A Native American.
    13. A resident of the TTA.

For more information, refer to the federal JTPA or its successor, the Workforce Investment Act (WIA).

The percentage of wages used to compute the credit depends on the number of years the employee works for the employer in the TTA. The applicable percentage begins at 50% and declines 10% for each year of employment. After the fifth year of employment, no credit can be generated.

Wages that qualify for the hiring credit are those wages paid or incurred to hire a qualified employee for the consecutive 60-month period beginning on the first day the employee commenced employment with the employer. For this purpose, commencement of employment or the hire date is the first day of employment for which the individual receives wages/compensation. For an employer that operates a business that has regularly occurring seasonal or intermittent employment decreases and increases, reemployment of an individual is not a new hire; rather, it is a continuation of the prior employment and does not constitute commencement of employment for the qualified wages test.

The credit is based on the smaller of the following:

  • The actual hourly rate paid or incurred by the employer for work performed by the employee during the taxable year.
  • 150% of the minimum hourly wage established by the Industrial Welfare Commission.

Where the California minimum wage was higher than the federal minimum wage, the California minimum wage was used for purposes of computing the TTA hiring credit. The minimum wage prior to July 1, 2014, was $8.00 per hour. For purposes of computing the TTA hiring credit, 150% of the minimum wage was $12.00 per hour. After July 1, 2014, the minimum wage was $9.00 until January 1, 2016. For purposes of computing the TTA hiring credit, 150% of the minimum wage was $13.50 per hour.

Example:

John Anderson was hired on January 1, 2012. John’s hourly rate for the first month was the minimum wage of $8.00. At the beginning of the second month, his hourly rate increased to $8.50. For the third month, John’s hourly rate increased to $12.50. The hourly rate that qualifies for the credit is limited to 150% of the minimum wage, or $12.00 per hour. The amount of qualified wages is computed as follows:

Month(s) Hours per month × Hourly rate allowed = Qualified wages per month
1 175 $8.00 $1,400.00
2 170 $8.50 $1,445.00
3 170 $12.00 $2,040.00
Record Keeping

Retain a copy of VoucherCert 10-07 and the documentation given to the vouchering agency. In addition, for each qualified employee, keep a schedule of the first 60 months of employment showing (at least) the following:

  • Employee’s name.
  • Date the employee was hired.
  • Number of hours the employee worked for each month of employment.
  • Smaller of the hourly rate of pay for each month of employment or 150% of the minimum wage.
  • Location of the employee’s job site and duties performed.
  • Records of any other federal or state subsidies received for hiring the qualified employee.
  • Total qualified wages per month for each month of employment.

Credit Limitations

  • The amount of hiring credit claimed may not exceed the amount of tax on TTA business income in any year. Use Schedule Z on Side 2 of form FTB 3809 to compute the credit limitation.
  • The portion of any TTA hiring credit remaining for carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, shall be carried over only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, or until the credit is exhausted, whichever occurs first.
  • In the case where the business is qualified to take the TTA hiring credit as well as another credit (e.g., EZ, MEA, or LAMBRA hiring credit) for the same wage expense, the business may claim only one credit.
  • S corporations may claim only 1/3 of the TTA hiring credit against the 1.5% entity-level tax (3.5% for financial S corporations). S corporations can pass through 100% of the credit to their shareholders. The 1/3 of the credit can be carried over if it cannot be used in the current year. The remaining 2/3 must be disregarded and may not be carried over.
Section B – Credit Recapture

Recapture the amount of credit attributable to an employee’s wages if the employer terminates the employee at any time during the longer of the following:

  • The first 270 days of employment (whether or not consecutive).
  • 90 days of employment plus 270 calendar days.

Employers of seasonal employees must recapture the amount of hiring credit attributable to the employee’s wages if both of the following apply:

  • The employer terminates the employee before the completion of 270 days of employment.
  • The 270 days is during the 60-month period beginning the day the employee commences employment with the employer.

A “day of employment” means any day the employee receives wage compensation (including a paid sick day, holiday, or vacation day).

The employer must add to the current year’s tax the amount of credit claimed in the year of termination and all prior years in which the credit was claimed for the terminated employee.

The credit recapture does not apply if the termination of employment was any of the following:

  • Voluntary on the part of the employee.
  • In response to misconduct of the employee.
  • Caused by the employee becoming disabled (unless the employee was able to return to work and the employer did not offer to reemploy the individual).
  • Carried out so that other qualified individuals could be hired, creating a net increase in both the number of qualified employees and the number of hours worked.
  • Due to a substantial reduction in the employer’s trade or business operations.

Enter the name(s) of employee(s) even if one of the above exceptions to recapture is met.

Line 1, column (a)

Enter the name of the terminated employee(s). Attach additional schedule(s) if necessary.

Line 1, column (b)

Enter the amount of credit recapture for each employee listed in column (a).

Line 2

Also, include the amount of hiring credit recapture on your California tax return or schedule as follows:

  • Form 100, Schedule J, line 5.
  • Form 100S, Schedule J, line 5 and Schedule K-1 (100S), line 17d.
  • Form 100W, Schedule J, line 5.
  • Form 109, Schedule K, line 4.
  • Form 540, line 63.
  • Long Form 540NR, line 73.
  • Form 541, line 37 and Schedule K-1 (541), line 14d.

  • Form 568, Schedule K, line 20c and Schedule K-1 (568), line 20c.

Indicate that you included the hiring credit recapture on your tax return by writing “FTB 3809” in the space provided on the schedule or form.

Partnerships identify the recapture amounts for their partners and members on Schedule K-1 (565 or 568).

S corporation shareholders must recapture the portion of the credit that was previously claimed, based on the terminated employee’s wages. In addition, identify the recapture amount for shareholders on Schedule K-1 (100S). This amount will differ from the amount recaptured by the S corporation on Form 100S, Schedule J.

Line 1b – Sales or Use Tax Credit Carryover

The TTA has expired as of December 31, 2012. Generally, no further TTA incentives can be generated after the expiration date. For taxpayers engaged in a trade or business in an expired TTA, the sales or use tax credit may only be generated for qualified property purchased on or before December 31, 2012, and placed in service on or before December 31, 2012. The sales or use tax credit is not available for assets purchased and/or placed in service on or after January 1, 2013.

You may claim a credit carryover for the sales or use tax paid or incurred on qualified property under R&TC Sections 17053.33 and 23633, only if a carryover is available from taxable years 1998 through 2012.

Credit Limitations

  • The amount of sales or use tax credit carryover claimed may not exceed the amount of tax on the TTA business income in any year.
  • The portion of any TTA sales or use tax credit remaining for carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, shall be carried over only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, or until the credit is exhausted, whichever occurs first.
  • In the case where the business is qualified to take the TTA sales or use tax credit as well as another state credit (e.g. enterprise zone sales or use tax credit, or LAMBRA sales or use tax credit) for the same piece of property, the business may only claim one credit for that property.

Part II – Portion of Business Attributable to the Targeted Tax Area

TTA tax credits are limited to the tax on business income attributable to operations within the TTA. TTA deductions are limited to business income attributable to operations within the TTA. If the business is located within and outside the TTA, determine the portion of total business operations that are attributable to the TTA. Each taxpayer must complete one form FTB 3809 for each zone, and therefore, must also compute the income limitation for each zone.

Business Income vs. Nonbusiness Income

Only business income is apportioned to the TTA to determine the incentive limitation.

Business income is defined as income arising from transactions and activities in the regular course of the trade or business. Business income includes income from tangible and intangible property if the acquisition, management, and disposition of the property constitute integral parts of the regular trade or business operations. Nonbusiness income is all income other than business income. See Cal. Code Regs., tit. 18 section 25120 for further references and examples of nonbusiness income.

For corporations and entities doing business in and outside of the TTA, use Worksheet III, Section A, to determine the TTA apportionment factor to determine the amount of business income attributable to the Targeted Tax Area.

Pass-through entities must report to their shareholders, beneficiaries, partners, and members the following items:

  1. The distributive (or pro-rata for S corporations) share of the business income apportioned to the TTA.
  2. The distributive (or pro-rata for S corporations) share of the business capital gains and losses apportioned to the TTA included in item 1.
  3. The distributive (or pro-rata for S Corporation) share of the TTA property and payroll to corporate partners, members, shareholders, beneficiaries.

Report these items as other information on Schedule K-1 (100S, 541, 565, or 568.)

For an individual, use Worksheet III, Section B to determine business income attributable to the TTA. Business income includes, but is not limited to, California business income or loss from federal Form 1040, Schedules C,D,E,F, and California Schedule D-1, Sales of Business Property, (or federal Form 4797, Sales of Business Property, if California Schedule D-1 is not needed), as well as wages. Be sure to include casualty losses, disaster losses, and any business deductions reported on federal Form 1040 Schedule A as itemized deductions.

Generally, all income which arises from the conduct of trade or business operations of a taxpayer is business income.

If you elected to claim part or all of your current year disaster loss under IRC Section 165(i)(1) on prior year's tax return, do not include the amount of the loss that was claimed in your current year business income from the TTA.

Apportionment

Business income is apportioned to the TTA by multiplying the total California business income of the taxpayer by a fraction. The numerator which is the property factor plus the payroll factor, and the denominator which is two. Loss is apportioned to the TTA by multiplying the taxpayer’s total overall business loss by a fraction. If a taxpayer conducts businesses in more than one TTA, the TTA apportionment factor and credit limitations are computed separately for each TTA.

Property Factor

Property factor is defined as the average value of all real and tangible personal property owned or rented by the taxpayer and used during the taxable year to produce business income.

Property owned by the business is valued at its original cost. Original cost is the basis of the property for federal income tax purposes (prior to any federal adjustment) at the time of acquisition by the business, adjusted for subsequent capital additions or improvements and partial dispositions because of sale or exchange. Allowance for depreciation is not considered.

Rented property is valued at eight times the net annual rental rate. The net annual rental rate for any item of rented property is the total rent paid for the property, less total annual subrental rates paid by subtenants.

Payroll Factor

Payroll is defined as the total amount paid to the business’ employees as compensation for the production of business income during the taxable year.

Compensation means wages, salaries, commissions, and any other form of remuneration paid directly to employees for personal services.

Payments made to independent contractors or any other person not properly classified as an employee are excluded.

Compensation Within the TTA

Compensation is considered to be within the TTA if any one of the following tests is met:

  1. The employee’s services are performed within the geographical boundaries of the TTA.
  2. The employee’s services are performed within and outside the TTA, but the services performed outside the TTA are incidental to the employee’s service within the TTA.

    Incidental means any temporary or transitory service performed in connection with an isolated transaction.

  3. If the employee’s services are performed within and outside the TTA, the employee’s compensation is attributed to the TTA if any one of the following items is met:
    1. The employee’s base of operations is within the TTA.
    2. There is no base of operations in any other part of the state in which some part of the service is performed, and the place from which the service is directed or controlled is within the TTA.
    3. The base of operations or the place from which the service is directed or controlled is not in any other part of the state in which some part of the service is performed and the employee’s residence is within the TTA.

      Base of operations is the permanent place from which employees start work and customarily return in order to receive instruction from the taxpayer or communications from their customers or persons; to replenish stock or other material; to repair equipment; or to perform any other functions necessary in the exercise of their trade or profession at some other point or points.

Corporations Filing a Combined Report

When determining the income attributable to the TTA, the business income of each corporation doing business in the TTA is the business income apportioned to California as determined under combined report mechanics. Get FTB Pub. 1061 for further information on combined reports and entity income apportionment. Each corporation computes the income attributable to the TTA by multiplying California business by TTA apportionment factor computed in Worksheet III, Section A. The TTA property and payroll factors used in the determination of TTA income includes only the taxpayer’s California amounts in the denominator.

Example: Computation of TTA income assigned to each entity operating within the TTA

Parent Corporation A has two subsidiaries, B and C. Corporations A and B operate within the TTA. The combined reporting group operates within and outside California and apportions its income to California using Schedule R. Assume the combined reporting group’s business income apportioned to California was $1,000,000 and Corporation A and B’s share of business income assigned to California is $228,000 and $250,000 respectively. Corporation A and B’s separate TTA and separate California property and payroll factor amounts are shown.

Business income apportioned to the TTA is determined as follows:

  A. B.
Property Factor
TTA property $1,000,000 $800,000
California property $1,000,000 $1,200,000
Apportionment % 100% 66.66%
Payroll Factor
TTA payroll $800,000 $800,000
California payroll $800,000 $1,000,000
Apportionment % 100% 80%
Average Apportionment %

(Property + Payroll Factors) ÷ 2

100% 73.33%
Apportioned Business Income $228,000 $250,000
TTA business income $228,000 $183,325

Instructions for Worksheet III – Income or Loss Apportionment

Section A – Income Apportionment

If the business operates solely within the TTA and all its property and payroll are solely within the TTA, enter 100% (1.00) on Section A, line 4, column (c). Do not complete the rest of Worksheet III.

Use Worksheet III, Section A, Income Apportionment, to determine the amount of business income apportioned to the TTA. The apportioned TTA business income determines the amount of the tax incentives that can be used. A taxpayer’s TTA business income is its California business income multiplied by the specific TTA apportionment percentage computed in Worksheet III, Section A.

Property Factor

When determining the income apportioned to the TTA, the numerator of the property factor is the average value of the real and tangible personal property owned or rented by the business and used within the TTA during the taxable year to produce TTA business income, see Worksheet III, Section A, column (b). The denominator of the property factor is the total average value of all the taxpayer’s real and tangible personal property owned or rented and used during the taxable year within California. See Worksheet III, Section A, column (a).

Payroll Factor

When determining income apportioned to the TTA, the numerator of the payroll factor is the taxpayer’s total compensation paid to the employees for working within the TTA during the taxable year, see Worksheet III, Section A, column (b). The denominator of the payroll factor is the taxpayer’s total compensation paid to employees working in California. See Worksheet III, Section A, column (a).

Section B – Income or Loss Apportionment

Form 540 and Long Form 540NR filers, use Worksheet III, Section B to determine the amount to enter on the following:

  • Worksheet IV, line 1 and line 6
  • Schedule Z, Part I, line 1 and line 3

Do not include disaster losses in any amounts used in the table.

Only California source business income is apportioned to the TTA. A taxpayer’s TTA business income is its California apportioned business income computed using Schedule R, multiplied by the specific TTA apportionment percentage computed using Worksheet III, Section A.

The first step is to determine which portion of the taxpayer’s net income is “business income” and which portion is “nonbusiness income,” since only business income is apportioned to the TTA. See Part II, Portion of Business Attributable to the Targeted Tax Area, for a complete discussion of business and nonbusiness income.

Business income or loss reported on federal Form 1040 Schedules C, C-EZ, E, F, and other schedules are reported on line 6 through line 9. Line 11 and line 12 report business gains or losses reported on California Schedule D, California Capital Gain or Loss Adjustment, and Schedule D-1 (or federal Form 4797, if California Schedule D-1 is not needed). All business income and losses should be adjusted for any differences between California and federal amounts as shown on the Schedule CA.

Part I – Individual Income and Expense Items

Wages

For taxpayers with wages from a company located within and outside the TTA, determine the TTA wage income by entering the percentage of the time that they worked within the TTA in column (b). The percentage of time should be for the same period for which the wages entered on line 1 were earned. Determine this percentage based on their record of time and events such as a travel log or entries in a daily planner.

Part II – Pass-Through Income or Loss

Individuals with a K-1

The individual partner, member, or shareholder completes Worksheet III, Section B, Part II, Pass-Through Income or Loss, and Schedule Z, Computation of Credit Limitations.

Multiple Pass-Through Entities

If you are a shareholder, beneficiary, partner, or member in multiple pass-through entities with businesses located within and outside the TTA from which you received TTA tax incentives, see the example below for computing business income in the TTA.

Example:

Pass-through entity Trade or business income from Schedule K-1 (100S, 541, 565, or 568) Entity’s TTA apportionment percentage TTA apportioned income
ABC, Inc. $40,000 80% $32,000
A, B, & C 30,000 10% 3,000
ABC, LLC 10,000 50% 5,000
Total     $40,000
Part III – Taxpayer’s Trade or Business

Business Income or Loss

Use business income or loss from federal Form 1040 Schedules C, C-EZ, E, and F, plus California adjustments from Schedule CA (540 or 540NR) for each trade or business. Also, include business capital gains and losses from Schedule D and business gains and losses from Schedule D-1 as adjusted on Schedule CA (540 or 540NR).

Income Computation Located Entirely Within the TTA

Line 6 – Line 9

If your business operation reported on federal Form 1040 Schedule C, C-EZ, E, F, or other schedule is entirely within the TTA, enter the income or loss from this activity in column (a), and enter 1.00 in column (b).

Line 11 and Line 12

If the gain or loss reported on Schedule D or Schedule D-1 as adjusted on Schedule CA (540 or 540NR) was attributed to an asset used in an activity conducted entirely within the TTA, enter the gain or loss reported in column (a), and enter 1.00 in column (b).

Located Entirely Within California

Line 6 – Line 9

If your business operation reported on federal Form 1040 Schedule C, C-EZ, E, F, or other schedule is entirely within California, enter the income or loss from this activity in column (a). To determine the apportionment percentage in column (b), complete Worksheet III, Section A. Enter the percentage from Worksheet III, Section A, line 4, column (c) on Worksheet III, Section B, column (b).

Line 11 and Line 12

If the gain or loss reported on Schedule D or Schedule D-1 as adjusted on Schedule CA (540 or 540NR) was attributed to an asset used in an activity conducted entirely within California, enter the gain or loss reported in column (a). To determine the apportionment percentage figure in column (b), complete Worksheet III, Section A. Enter the percentage from Worksheet III, Section A, line 4, column (c) on Worksheet III, Section B, column (b).

Located Within and Outside the TTA and California

Line 6 – Line 9

If your business operation reported on federal Form 1040 Schedule C, C-EZ, E, F, or other schedule is within and outside the TTA and California, get California Schedule R and complete line 1 through line 18b and line 28 through line 31. Enter the amount from Schedule R, line 18b and line 31 in column (a) of this worksheet. To determine the apportionment percentage in column (b), complete Worksheet III, Section A. Enter the percentage from Worksheet III, Section A, line 4, column (c) on Worksheet III, Section B, column (b).

When computing Schedule R, disregard any reference to Forms 100, 100S, 100W, 565, or 568. Also, disregard any reference to Schedules R-3, R-4, or R-5.

Nonresidents that have an apportioning business that operates within the TTA should have already computed Schedule R, and can use those amounts when that schedule is referenced. Residents complete a Schedule R in order to determine their California source business income for purposes of the TTA credit computation.

Line 11 and Line 12

If the gain or loss reported on Schedule D or Schedule D-1 as adjusted on Schedule CA (540 or 540NR) was attributed to an asset used in an activity conducted within and outside the TTA and California, get Schedule R and complete Schedule R-1. Multiply the gain or loss reported by the percentage on Schedule R-1, Part A, line 2 or Part B, line 5 and enter the result in column (a). To determine the apportionment percentage in column (b), complete Worksheet III, Section A. Enter the percentage from Worksheet III, Section A, line 4, column (c) on Worksheet III, Section B, column (b).

Line 14

If you are computing the TTA business income and the result on Worksheet III, Section B, line 14, column (c) is a positive amount and:

  • You have TTA NOL carryovers, enter the amount on Worksheet IV, line 1 and line 6 (skip line 2 through line 5).
  • You have TTA credits or credit carryovers, enter the amount on Schedule Z, Part I, line 1 and line 3 (skip line 2).

If the amount is negative, you do not have any business income attributable to the TTA and you cannot utilize any TTA NOL carryover, credit(s), or credit carryover(s) in the current taxable year.

Part III – Net Operating Loss (NOL) Carryover and Deduction

The TTA has expired as of December 31, 2012. Generally, no further TTA incentives can be generated after the expiration date. For taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2013, taxpayers can no longer generate any TTA NOL. However, taxpayers can claim an NOL carryover deduction from prior years.

For NOLs incurred in taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, California has extended the NOL carryover period to 20 taxable years following the year of the loss.

For taxable years beginning in 2002 and 2003, California had suspended the NOL carryover deduction. Taxpayers continued to carryover an NOL during the suspension period. The carryover period for suspended losses was extended by two years for losses incurred before January 1, 2002, and by one year for losses incurred on or after January 1, 2002, and before January 1, 2003. The deduction for disaster losses was not affected by the NOL suspension rules. See instructions for Worksheet IV, on the next page for more information on the suspension of the NOL carryover deduction for taxable years beginning in 2008 through 2011.

The business cannot generate NOLs from activities within the TTA before the first taxable year beginning on or after the date the TTA is officially designated.

Limitation

A TTA NOL carryover deduction can only offset business income attributable to operations within the TTA.

Election

If you elected and designated the carryover category (general or specific, EZ, LAMBRA, or TTA NOL) on the original tax return for the year of a loss, file form FTB 3809 for each year in which a TTA NOL deduction is being taken. The election is irrevocable.

If you elected the TTA NOL deduction, you are prohibited by law from carrying over any other type of NOL (relating to TTA activities) from this year.

Alternative Minimum Tax

Taxpayers claiming a TTA NOL carryover deduction determine their NOL for alternative minimum tax purposes. Use Schedule P (100, 100W, 540, 540NR, or 541) to compute the NOL for alternative minimum tax purposes.

S Corporations

TTA NOLs incurred prior to becoming an S corporation cannot be used against S corporation income. See IRC Section 1371(b).

However, an S corporation is allowed to deduct a TTA NOL incurred after the “S” election is made. An S corporation may use the NOL carryover as a deduction against income subject to the 1.5% entity-level tax (3.5% for financial S corporations). The expenses (and income) giving rise to the loss are also passed through to the shareholders in the year the loss is incurred.

Combined Report

Corporations that are members of a unitary group filing a combined report separately compute loss carryover for each corporation in the group (R&TC Section 25108) using individual apportionment factors.

Unlike the NOL treatment on a federal consolidated tax return, a loss carryover for one member included in a combined report may not be applied to the intrastate apportioned income of another member included in a combined report.

Water’s-Edge Taxpayer

For any water’s-edge taxpayer, R&TC Section 24416(c) imposes a limitation on the NOL deduction, if the NOL is generated during a non-water’s edge tax year. The NOL carryover is limited to the lesser of the NOL or the re-computed NOL. The re-computed NOL carryover is determined by computing the income and factors of the original worldwide combined reporting group, as if the water’s-edge election had been in force for the year of the loss. R&TC Section 24416(c) serves as a limitation. If this section applies, the NOL carryover for each corporation may only be decreased, but not increased.

Instructions for Worksheet IV – Computation of NOL Carryover and Carryover Limitations

Individuals, exempt trusts, and corporations with current year income and a prior year TTA NOL carryover complete Worksheet IV.

For taxable years beginning in 2010 and 2011, California suspended the NOL carryover deduction. Taxpayers continued to compute and carryover NOLs during the suspension period. However, taxpayers with net income after state adjustments (pre-apportioned income) (corporations) or with modified adjusted gross income (individuals) of less than $300,000, or with disaster loss carryovers are not affected by the NOL suspension rules.

Corporations use line 17 of Forms 100 and 100W, or line 14 less line 16 of Form 100S to determine net income after state adjustments (pre-apportioned income).

Individuals use the amount shown on your federal tax return for the same taxable year without regard to the federal NOL deduction (Form 540/540NR, Line 13, plus the federal NOL deduction listed on Schedule CA (540/540NR) column C, line 21c).

The carryover periods for any NOL or NOL carryover, for which a deduction is disallowed because of the 2008 - 2011 suspension, are extended by:

  • One year for losses incurred in taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2010, and before January 1, 2011.
  • Two years for losses incurred in taxable years beginning before January 1, 2010.
  • Three years for losses incurred in taxable years beginning before January 1, 2009.
  • Four years for losses incurred in taxable years beginning before January 1, 2008.

The TTA NOL carryover deduction is used to reduce current year income from the TTA. Use this worksheet to compute the TTA NOL carryover deduction for corporations, individuals, and exempt trusts.

Line 1

See Part II on page 6 for a discussion of business and nonbusiness income.

Form 540 and Form 540NR filers:

Be sure to include casualty losses, disaster losses, and any business deductions reported on federal Form 1040, Schedule A, as itemized deductions.

Exception: If you elected to carry back part or all of your current year disaster loss, under IRC Section 165(i)(1), do not include the amount of the loss that was carried back in the current year business income for the TTA.

Line 2

In modifying your income, deduct the capital losses only up to the amount of capital gains. Enter any net capital losses included in line 1 as a positive number.

Schedule Z – Computation of Credit Limitations

Credit Limitations

The amount of credit you can claim on your California tax return is limited by the amount of tax attributable to TTA business income. The amount of tax attributable to the TTA business income is computed in this schedule. For corporations and other entities doing business in the targeted tax area, the TTA business income is computed in this schedule using the TTA apportionment factor formula computed on Worksheet III, Section A. For individuals, the TTA business income is computed on Worksheet III, Section B.

Assignment of Credit

For taxable years beginning on or after July 1, 2008, credit earned by members of a combined reporting group may be assigned to an affiliated corporation that is an eligible member of the same combined reporting group. A credit assigned may only be claimed by the affiliated corporation against its tax in taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2010.

The eligible assignee shall be treated as if it originally generated the assigned credit. Any credit requirements, limitations or restrictions that applied to the assignor will also apply to the eligible assignee. The amount of TTA credits you may claim on your California tax return is limited to the tax attributable to a specific TTA. For zone credits assigned, the assignee must have a tax liability as a result of income generated in the same zone that the original credit was generated. For example, if the original credit was generated in the Tulare TTA of the assignor, the assignee must have a tax liability on the income attributable to the Tulare TTA in order to use the assigned credit. For more information, get form FTB 3544, or form FTB 3544A or go to ftb.ca.gov and search for credit assignment.

Other Limitations

If a taxpayer owns an interest in a disregarded business entity, the amount of the credit that can be utilized is limited to the difference between the taxpayer’s regular tax computed with the income of the disregarded entity, and the taxpayer’s regular tax computed without the income of the disregarded entity. Partnerships allocate the credit among the partners according to the partner’s distributive share as determined in a written partnership agreement. See R&TC Section 17039(e)(2).

Credits you are otherwise eligible to claim may be limited. Do not apply credits against the minimum franchise tax (corporations and S corporations), annual tax (partnerships and QSub), alternative minimum tax (corporations, exempt organizations, individuals, and fiduciaries), built-in gains tax (S corporations), or excess net passive income tax (S corporations).

Refer to the credit instructions in your tax booklet for more information.

S Corporations and the Application of TTA Credits

An S corporation may use its TTA credits to reduce TTA tax at both the corporate and shareholder levels.

An S corporation may use 1/3 of the TTA credits to reduce the tax on the S corporation’s TTA business income. In addition, S corporation shareholders may claim their pro-rata share of the entire amount of the TTA credits computed under the Personal Income Tax Law.

Example: In 2017, an S corporation qualified for a $3,000 TTA hiring credit. The S corporation will be able to use 13 of the credit ($3,000 × 13 = $1,000) to offset the tax on the corporation’s TTA income.

The S corporation will also pass-through a $3,000 credit to its shareholders to offset their individual tax (computed under the Personal Income Tax Law) on TTA income.

S corporations should attach form FTB 3809 to Form 100S, California S Corporation Franchise or Income Tax Return, to claim the tax credits.

Shareholders should attach Schedule(s) K-1 (100S), to their individual tax return.

Carryover

If the amount of hiring credit available this year exceeds your TTA tax, you may carry over any excess credit to future years. The portion of any hiring credit or sales or use tax credit remaining for carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, shall be carried over only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, or until the credit is exhausted, whichever occurs first. Apply the carryover to the earliest taxable year(s) possible. In no event can the credit be carried back and applied against a prior year’s tax.

For S corporations, the amount of the 1/3 of hiring credit that is in excess of the 1.5% entity-level tax (3.5% for financial S corporations) in the current year may also be carried forward and used in future years to offset the S corporation entity-level business tax. See the instructions for Schedule Z, Part III, for more information.

If a C corporation had unused credit carryovers when it elected S corporation status, the carryovers were reduced to 1/3 and transferred to the S corporation. The remaining 2/3 were disregarded. The allowable carryovers may be used to offset the 1.5% tax on net income in accordance with the respective carryover rules. These C corporation carryovers may not be passed through to shareholders. For more information, get Schedule C (100S), S Corporation Tax Credits.

Credit Code

Use credit code 210 to claim the TTA hiring credit and sales or use tax credit carryover on your tax return. Using an incorrect code may cause a delay in allowing the credit(s).

Instructions for Schedule Z – Computation of Credit Limitations

Reporting Requirements of S Corporations, Estates and Trusts, and Partnerships
  • Partnerships and LLC’s treated as partnerships do not complete Schedule Z. The partners and members of these types of entities should compute their TTA income from all sources by completing the Schedule Z to determine the amount of TTA credits that they may claim on their California tax return. For individual partners, report the distributive share of all the business income apportioned to the TTA. For corporate partners, report the distributive share of the TTA property and payroll. Report these items as other information on Schedule K-1 (565).
  • S corporations and their shareholders complete Schedule Z.
  • Report to shareholders, beneficiaries, partners, and members, the distributive or pro-rata share of business income, losses, and deductions apportioned to the TTA; and
  • Separately state any distributive or pro-rata share of business capital gains and losses apportioned to the TTA included in the amount above.
S Corporations

Complete only Part I and Part III of Schedule Z if your entity-level tax before credits is more than the minimum franchise tax.

Corporations and S Corporations subject to the minimum franchise tax only

Complete only Part IV of Schedule Z.

All others

Complete Part I and Part II of Schedule Z.

Part I – Computation of Credit Limitations

For filers with NOL carryovers.

  • Complete Worksheet IV first if you have an NOL carryover.
  • Then complete Schedule Z if you have any TTA credits.

If you do not have any NOL carryovers:

  • Individuals: Go to Worksheet III, Section B. Follow the instructions there. Enter the amount from Worksheet III, Section B, line 14, column (c) on Schedule Z, Part I, line 1 and line 3 (skip line 2).
  • Corporations: Follow the instructions for line 1 below.

Only business income is apportioned to the TTA to determine the incentive limitation. Business income is defined as income arising from transactions and activities in the regular course of the trade or business. Business income includes income from tangible and intangible property if the acquisition, management, and disposition of the property constitute integral parts of the regular trade or business operations. Nonbusiness income is all income other than business income.

For corporations filing a combined report, the business income of each corporation doing business in the TTA is the business income apportioned to California as determined under combined report mechanics. Get FTB Pub 1061 for more information on combined reports and entity income apportionment.

Line 1

Enter all trade or business income. See form FTB 3809, Part II instructions for the definition of business income.

Line 2

If your business is located entirely within the TTA, enter 1.

This percentage is the apportionment percentage computed by the entity using Worksheet III Section A, and represents the percentage of the entity’s business income attributable to the TTA.

Line 6a

Compute the tax as if the TTA taxable income represented all of your taxable income.

Individuals

Use the tax table or tax rate schedule in your tax booklet for your filing status.

Exempt Organizations

Use the applicable tax rate in your tax booklet.

Corporations and S Corporations

Use the applicable tax rate.

If the amount on line 6a is the minimum franchise tax ($800), you cannot use your TTA credits this year. Complete Part IV of Schedule Z to compute the amount of credit carryover.

Example: Determination of TTA Income for Shareholders, Partners, or Members of Pass-Through Entities

John Anderson is vice president of ABC, Inc., an S corporation that has two locations: one within the TTA and one outside the TTA. Eighty percent (80%) of the S corporation’s business is attributable to the TTA.

This percentage was determined by ABC, Inc. using Worksheet III, Section A, when ABC’s S corporation tax return (Form 100S) was prepared.

John divides his time equally (50/50) between the two offices of ABC, Inc. Jackie Anderson (John’s spouse/RDP) works for ABC, Inc. at its office located within the TTA.

John and Jackie Anderson have the following items of California income and expense for the 2017 taxable year:

  • John’s salary from ABC, Inc: $100,000
  • Jackie’s salary from ABC, Inc: 75,000
  • Interest on savings account: 1,000
  • Dividends: 3,000
  • Schedule K-1 (100S) from ABC, Inc.: Ordinary income: 40,000
  • John’s unreimbursed employee expenses from federal Schedule A: (2,000)

The Anderson’s TTA business income (total amount to be reported on line 3) is computed as follows:

  • John’s TTA salary ($100,000 × 50%): $50,000
  • Jackie’s TTA salary ($75,000 × 100%): 75,000
  • Pass-through ordinary income from ABC, Inc. ($40,000 × 80%): 32,000
  • John’s unreimbursed employee business expenses (2,000 × 50%): (1,000)
  • Total TTA income (Schedule Z, Part I, line 3): $156,000

The standard deduction and personal or dependency exemptions are not included in the computation of TTA income since they are not related to trade or business activities.

John and Jackie must compute the tax (to be entered on Schedule Z, Part I, line 6a) on the total TTA income of $156,000 (as if it represents all of their income).

Line 6b

Corporations and S corporations:

If the amount on line 6b is the minimum franchise tax ($800), you cannot use your TTA credits this year. Complete Part IV of Schedule Z to compute the amount of credit carryover.

Part II – Limitations of Credits for Corporations, Individuals, Estates, and Trusts

Use Part II of Schedule Z if you are a corporation, individual, estate, or trust. Corporations and S corporations that are subject to paying only the minimum franchise tax, go to Part IV of Schedule Z.

Standard Industrial Classification Manual, 1987 Edition (Partial Listing)

The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual classifies business activities based upon establishments, which are defined in the SIC Manual as an economic unit, generally at a single physical location, where business is conducted, or where services or industrial operations are performed. A taxpayer’s enterprise may consist of more than one establishment. The SIC Manual provides the following examples of establishments: A factory, mill, store, hotel, movie theater, mine, farm, ranch, bank, railroad depot, airline terminal, sales office, warehouse, or central administrative office. Where distinct and separate economic activities are performed at a single physical location (such as construction activities operated out of the same physical location as a lumber yard), each activity should be treated as a separate establishment where: (1) No one industry description in the SIC Manual includes such combined activities; (2) The employment in each economic activity is significant; and (3) Separate reports are prepared on the number of employees, their wages and salaries, sales or receipts, property and equipment, and other types of financial data, such as financial statements, job costing, and profit center accounting.

The Standard Industrial Classification Manual is organized using a hierarchical structure, first by division, next by two-digit major groups within each division, then by three-digit industry groups within each major group, and finally by four-digit industry codes within each industry group.

For purposes of this publication, the following SIC codes are listed since only taxpayers with establishments in these industry codes qualify for the TTA tax incentives:

  • SIC Codes 2000 through 2099;
  • SIC Codes 2200 through 3999;
  • SIC Codes 4200 through 4299;
  • SIC Codes 4500 through 4599; and
  • SIC Codes 4700 through 5199.
