Complete this form if an investment tax credit (ITC) carryover is included in the current year's available credit. Once the Form 49C is completed, the carryover will be carried to Form 49.
ITC earned in tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2000, can be carried forward up to 14 succeeding tax years. Credit earned in tax years beginning before 2000 can also be carried forward up to 14 tax years if the 7-year carryover allowed for these years didn't expire before the first tax year beginning in 2000. For purposes of the carryover period, a short tax year counts as one tax year.
Application of Credit
The oldest available credit must be used before credit earned in the current year is used. Property moved from Idaho within the first five years ceases to qualify as ITC property and is subject to recapture.
Credit carried forward may be claimed by any member of a unitary combined group of corporations as long as the member who earned the credit is still in the combined group for the year the credit is being claimed.
Conversion of a C Corporation to S Corporation
An investment tax credit carryover earned by a C corporation that has converted to an S corporation is allowed against the S corporation's tax on net recognized built-in gains and excess net passive income. The credit is not allowed against the tax paid by an S corporation for nonresident shareholders. A separate Form 49C should be used to account for this credit carryover.
