Treatment of Qualified Subchapter S Corporations for New York State Conformed to Federal Tax Law


Meade, Kathleen M., The CPA Journal


For tax years beginning after December 31, 1996, Federal tax law permits the creation of qualified subchapter S subsidiaries (QSSS). Following the Federal lead, the New York State Legislature amended the Tax Law to allow for QSSSs, effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 1997 (Tax Law section 208(1-B), added by 1997 NY Laws ch 389, pt A, section 45).

However, with regard to other New York State taxes, such as sales and excise taxes, a QSSS will be recognized as a separate taxable entity. Further, QSSS treatment is not permitted under Article WA unless both parent and subsidiary are general business corporations that would each separately qualify for taxation under Article WA. …
