Revision Details: FTB Pub. 1061, Corporations Filing a Combined Report Booklet, Pages 3, 6, 10-13, 16, 17, 20, 22-26

In Farmer Bros. Co. v. Franchise Tax Board (2003) 108 Cal App 4th, 134 Cal Rptr. 2nd 390, the California Court of Appeal found that the R&TC Section 24402 deductible dividend provision discriminated against interstate commerce in violation of the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. R&TC Section 24402 provided for a deduction to the extent that the dividend payer was taxable in California. A statue that is held to be unconstitutional is invalid and unenforceable. Therefore, the deduction is not available.
