The amount of the tax shall be the amount of the federal credit allowable for estate, inheritance, legacy and succession taxes paid to any state or the District of Columbia under the provisions of the federal internal revenue code as provided in subsection (c) in respect to any property owned by such decedent or subject to such taxes as part of or in connection with the estate of such decedent. If real or tangible personal property of such decedent is located outside of this state and is subject to estate, inheritance, legacy, or succession taxes by any state or states, other than the state of Connecticut, or by the District of Columbia for which such federal credit is allowable, the amount of tax due under this section shall be reduced by the lesser of: (1) The amount of any such taxes paid to such other state or states or said district and allowed as a credit against the federal estate tax; or (2) an amount computed by multiplying such federal credit by a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which such other state or states or said district have jurisdiction for estate tax purposes to the same extent to which this state would assert jurisdiction for estate tax purposes under this chapter with respect to the residents of such other state or states or said district, and (B) the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. Property of a resident estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes includes real property situated in this state, tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state, and intangible personal property owned by the decedent, regardless of where it is located. The amount of any estate tax imposed under this subsection shall also be reduced, but not below zero, by the amount of any tax that is imposed under chapter 216 of the general statutes and that is actually paid to this state. The amount calculated under this subsection shall be multiplied by a factor of one and three-tenths and that product shall be the amount of tax due.

(b) A tax is imposed upon the transfer of the estate of each person who at the time of death was a nonresident of this state, the amount of which shall be computed by multiplying (1) the federal credit allowable for estate, inheritance, legacy, and succession taxes paid to any state or states or the District of Columbia under the provisions of the federal internal revenue code as provided in subsection (c) in respect to any property owned by such decedent or subject to such taxes as a part of or in connection with the estate of such decedent by (2) a fraction, (A) the numerator of which is the value of that part of the decedent's gross estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes, and (B) the denominator of which is the value of the decedent's gross estate. Property of a nonresident estate over which this state has jurisdiction for estate tax purposes includes real property situated in this state and tangible personal property having an actual situs in this state. The amount of any estate tax imposed under this subsection shall also be reduced, but not below zero, by the amount of any tax that is imposed under said chapter 216 and that is actually paid to this state. The amount calculated under this subsection shall be multiplied by a factor of one and three-tenths and that product shall be the amount of tax due.

(c) For purposes of subsections (a) and (b) of this section, "gross estate" means the gross estate, for federal estate tax purposes. The provisions of the federal internal revenue code in force at the date of such decedent's death shall apply except that (1) the applicable exclusion amount under subsection (c) of Section 2010 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 shall be one million dollars, and (2) the provisions of subsection (a) of Section 531 of Public Law 107-16 shall be disregarded.

Before such modifications are effected the Governor shall file a report with the joint standing committee having cognizance of matters relating to appropriations and the budgets of state agencies and the joint standing committee having cognizance of matters relating to state finance, revenue and bonding describing the exigency which makes it necessary that certain reductions should be made or the basis for his determination that estimated budget resources will be insufficient to finance all appropriations in full. No modification of an allotment requisition or an allotment in force made by the Governor pursuant to this subsection shall result in a reduction of more than five per cent of the total appropriation from any fund in excess of the amount allowed under said section 4-85 or more than five per cent of any appropriation in excess of the amount allowed under said section 4-85. In no event shall total modifications pursuant to this subsection exceed fifty-five million dollars. The limitations of this subsection shall not apply in time of war, invasion or emergency caused by natural disaster.

(c) The secretary shall submit copies of allotment requisitions thus approved or modified or allotments in force thus modified, with the reasons for any modifications, to the administrative heads of the budgeted agencies concerned, to the Comptroller and to the joint standing committee of the General Assembly having cognizance of appropriations and matters relating to the budgets of state agencies, through the Office of Fiscal Analysis.

[and such combined] Such combined return shall be filed in such form and setting forth such information as the Commissioner of Revenue Services may require.

(2) Notice of an election made pursuant to the provisions of this subsection and consent to such election must be submitted in written form to the Commissioner of Revenue Services by each corporation so electing not later than the due date, or if an extension of time to file has been requested and granted, the extended due date of the returns due from the electing corporations for the initial income year for which the election to file a combined return is made. Such election shall be in effect for such initial income year and for each succeeding income years unless and until such election is revoked in accordance with the provisions of subsection [(d)] (f) of this section.

(b) Any taxpayer, other than a corporation filing a combined return with one or more other corporations under subsection (a) of this section, which owns or controls either directly or indirectly substantially all the capital stock of one or more corporations, or substantially all the capital stock of which is owned or controlled either directly or indirectly by one or more other corporations or by interests which own or control either directly or indirectly substantially all the capital stock of one or more other corporations, may, in the discretion of the Commissioner of Revenue Services, be required or permitted by written approval of the Commissioner of Revenue Services to make a return on a combined basis covering any such other corporations and setting forth such information as the Commissioner of Revenue Services may require, provided no combined return covering any corporation not subject to tax under this chapter shall be required unless the Commissioner of Revenue Services deems such a return necessary, because of intercompany transactions or some agreement, understanding, arrangement or transaction referred to in section 12-226a, in order properly to reflect the tax liability under this part.

[(c) (1) (A) In the case of a combined return, the tax shall be measured by the sum of the separate net income or loss of each corporation included or the minimum tax base of the included corporations but only to the extent that said income, loss or minimum tax base of any included corporation is separately apportioned to Connecticut in accordance with the provisions of section 12-218, 12-219a or 12-244, whichever is applicable. In computing said net income or loss, intercorporate dividends shall be eliminated, and in computing the combined additional tax base, intercorporate stockholdings shall be eliminated. ]

[(2)] (d) If the method of determining the combined measure of such tax in accordance with [this] subsection (c) of this section for two or more affiliated companies validly electing to file a combined return under the provisions of subsection (a) of this section is deemed by such companies to unfairly attribute an undue proportion of their total income or minimum tax base to this state, said companies may submit a petition in writing to the Commissioner of Revenue Services for approval of an alternate method of determining the combined measure of their tax not later than sixty days prior to the due date of the combined return to which the petition applies, determined with regard to any extension of time for filing such return, and said commissioner shall grant or deny such approval before said due date. In deciding whether or not the companies included in such combined return should be granted approval to employ the alternate method proposed in such petition, the Commissioner of Revenue Services shall consider approval only in the event that the petitioners have clearly established to the satisfaction of said commissioner that all the companies included in such combined return are, in substance, parts of a unitary business engaged in a single business enterprise, [and further] that there are substantial intercorporate business transactions among such included companies and that the proposed alternate method of determining the combined measure of the tax accurately reflects the activity, business, income or capital of the taxpayers within the state.

[(d)] (f) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (a) and [(c)] (e) of this section, any taxpayer which has elected to file a combined return under this chapter as provided in [said] subsection (a) of this section, may subsequently revoke its election to file a combined corporation business tax return and elect to file a separate corporation business tax return under this chapter, although continuing to be included in a federal consolidated corporation income tax return with other companies subject to tax under this chapter, provided such election shall not be effective before the fifth income year immediately following the initial income year in which the corporation elected to file a combined return under this chapter. Notice of an election made pursuant to the provisions of this subsection and consent to such election must be submitted in written form to the Commissioner of Revenue Services by each corporation that had been included in such combined return not later than the due date, or if an extension of time to file has been requested and granted, extended due date of the separate returns due from the electing corporations for the initial income year for which the election to file separate returns is made. The election to file separate returns shall be irrevocable for and applicable for five successive income years.

Sec. 91. (NEW) (Effective from passage and applicable to income years commencing on or after January 1, 2003) (a) Notwithstanding a taxpayer's election to file a combined return under subsection (a) of section 12-223a of the general statutes or the filing of a separate return by a taxpayer under chapter 208 of the general statutes, every taxpayer that has one or more of the factors listed in subsection (b) of this section with an affiliated corporation or a related entity during the taxpayer's income year shall file an alternate combined report with one or more affiliated corporations, as required by subsection (c) of this section, and compute their aggregate net income or loss, as required by subsection (d) of this section, apportioning their aggregate net income or loss, as required by subsection (e) of this section, and paying the tax due, as required by subsection (f) of this section.

(b) An alternate combined report shall be filed whether or not an "arm's length charge", within the meaning of United States Treasury Regulation Section 1. 482-2(b)(3), for any of the following factors is established and whether or not a valid business purpose can be established for the arrangement. The existence of one or more of the following factors requires the filing of the alternate combined report:

(1) Fifty per cent or more of the taxpayer's gross income is derived from transacting or conducting any business with one or more affiliated corporations or related entities or fifty per cent or more of the gross income of any one affiliated corporation or related entity is derived from transacting or conducting any business with the taxpayer or with the taxpayer and one or more affiliated corporations or related entities.

(2) Three or more of the following services are provided between the taxpayer and one or more affiliated corporations or related entities: Advertising services; public relations services; accounting and bookkeeping services; centralized cash management services; distribution services; legal services; personnel services; manufacturing services; sales services; purchasing services; research and development services; management services; collection services; insurance procurement and servicing, exclusive of employee benefit programs; and employee benefit programs including pension, profit-sharing and stock purchase plans.

(4) The taxpayer transfers, sells or exchanges income-producing property other than cash that serves an operational function, including real property, accounts receivable, securities, patents, trademarks, copyrights or other like property, to an affiliated corporation or related entity, and subsequently the taxpayer, either directly or indirectly, receives income or moneys attributable to such income-producing property.

(c) In the case of a taxpayer filing a separate return, the alternate combined report that is required under this section shall include the taxpayer and all affiliated corporations. Any taxpayer that has elected to file a combined return under subsection (a) of section 12-223a of the general statutes shall file an alternate combined report that includes the taxpayer, all taxpayers that are required to be included in the combined return under subsection (a) of section 12-223a of the general statutes and all other affiliated corporations. When a corporation in the affiliated group has an interest in a related entity and that related entity satisfies one or more of the factors enumerated in subsection (b) of this section, such corporation shall be treated as an affiliated corporation and must be included in the alternate combined report.

(d) All corporations included in the alternate combined report shall compute an aggregate net income or loss, by treating such corporations as if they were one corporation, and by eliminating intercorporate dividends. The corporations that are included in the alternate combined report shall not be subject to the provisions of section 12-218c of the general statutes. The commissioner shall establish by regulation, adopted in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 of the general statutes, the manner in which tax credits, net operating losses and net operating loss carryovers shall apply in the alternate combined report.

(e) The corporations that are included in the alternate combined report shall apportion their aggregate net income or loss to this state by treating all included corporations as if they were one corporation and the provisions of section 12-223b of the general statutes shall apply. The commissioner shall establish by regulation, adopted in accordance with the provisions of chapter 54 of the general statutes, the method by which the combined apportionment shall be computed when the apportionment methodology of the included corporations is not the same.

(f) (1) If the alternate combined tax computed under this section exceeds the tax computed under subdivision (1) of subsection (c) of section 12-223a of the general statutes, as amended by this act, the taxpayer and all affiliated corporations shall pay the tax computed under this section. All taxpayers included in the alternate combined report shall be jointly and severally liable for the tax computed under this subdivision.

(2) In the case of a taxpayer filing a separate return under chapter 208 of the general statutes, if the alternate combined tax computed under this section exceeds the tax computed on the separate return, the taxpayer shall pay the tax computed under this section.

(g) If the corporations subject to the alternate combined tax calculated under this section determine that such tax unfairly attributes an undue proportion of their total income or minimum tax base to this state, said corporations may submit a petition in writing to the Commissioner of Revenue Services for approval of an alternate method of determining the combined measure of their tax under this section not later than sixty days prior to the due date of the return to which the petition applies, determined with regard to any extension of time for filing such return. The Commissioner of Revenue Services shall consider approval of the petition only in the event that the petitioners have clearly established to the satisfaction of said commissioner that all the corporations included in such combined return are, in substance, parts of a unitary business engaged in a single business enterprise, that there are substantial intercorporate business transactions among such included corporations and that the proposed alternate method of apportionment accurately reflects the activity, business, income or capital of the taxpayers within the state.

(h) (1) If any member of the affiliated group or any related entity does not have any of the factors set forth in subsection (b) of this section and the commissioner determines that such corporation must be included in the alternate combined report in order to accurately reflect the activity, business, income or capital of the taxpayer within this state, the commissioner is authorized and empowered, in his or her discretion, provided such discretion is not arbitrarily, capriciously, or unreasonably exercised, to require such affiliated corporation to be included in the alternate combined report.

(2) If the commissioner determines that any affiliated corporation required to be included in the alternate combined report pursuant to subsection (c) of this section should be excluded from the alternate combined report in order to accurately reflect the activity, business, income or capital of the taxpayer within this state, the commissioner is authorized and empowered, in his or her discretion, provided such discretion is not arbitrarily, capriciously, or unreasonably exercised, to exclude such affiliated corporation from the alternate combined report.
