Q&A with the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue
How does S Corporation A disclose the 338(h) transaction and the credit on Schedule K-1 and how does the individual shareholder report the credit on the PA-40 so PA will accept the return without correspondence to the shareholder?
The PA-20S/PA-65 should back out the gain on the sale of assets reported on the Federal either on the Schedule M or the Schedule D. The PA return should not include the fictitious gain from the 338(h)(10) transaction. The PA shareholder should pick up the gain on the sale of stock on the PA-40 Schedule D. The Schedule GL should show the tax paid to the other state on the transaction.
