Question
Montana Credit for An Income Tax Paid to Another State or Country

Answer

You can use this credit only if you are filing as a full-year or part-year resident. If you are a full-year resident and you paid an income tax to another state or country on income that is also taxable to Montana, you may be entitled to a credit against your Montana income tax liability for these income taxes paid to another state or country. If you claimed the foreign tax credit on your federal tax return, you can claim this credit for foreign taxes on your Montana tax return only if you have unused federal credit that is not eligible to be carried back or carried forward to another tax year. If you are a resident and have unused federal credit or paid tax to another state, you will need to complete Form 2, Schedule VI to determine your available credit.

If you are a part-year resident and you paid an income tax to another state or country on income that is also taxable to Montana and if you included it as Montana source income on Form 2, Schedule IV, lines 1 through 16, you may be entitled to a credit against your Montana part-year resident income tax liability for these income taxes paid to another state or country. If you claimed the foreign tax credit on your federal tax return, you can claim this credit for foreign taxes on your Montana tax return only if you have unused federal credit that is not eligible to be carried back or carried forward to another tax year. If you are a part-year resident and have unused federal credit or paid tax to another state, you will need to complete Form 2, Schedule VII to determine your available credit.
