Question
Arizona Other Subtractions

Answer

Previously Reported Gain on Decedent's Installment Sale
Prior Arizona law required acceleration of any unrecognized installment sale gain upon the death of a taxpayer. However, this acceleration could have been avoided by the posting of a bond. If acceleration was required, your federal adjusted gross income may include installment sale amounts already recognized on a decedent's final Arizona return. If your federal adjusted gross income includes such amounts, you may subtract that portion of the gain included on your federal return.

Fiduciary Adjustment
A fiduciary uses Form 141AZ, Schedule K-1 to report to you your share of the fiduciary adjustment from the trust or estate. Line 3 of Form 141AZ, Schedule K-1 shows your share of the fiduciary adjustment from the estate or trust. If the amount reported on line 3 of your Arizona Form 141AZ, Schedule K-1, is a negative number, enter that amount as a subtraction. Enter the subtraction on line C29.

If the amount reported on line 3 of your Arizona Form 141AZ, Schedule K-1, is a positive number, enter that amount as an addition. Enter the addition on line B12.

Partnership Income
Use this adjustment if your Arizona Form 165, Schedule K-1, shows a difference between federal and state distributable income. If the difference reported on your Arizona Form 165, Schedule K-1, is a negative number, enter that difference as a subtraction. Enter the subtraction on line C29.

If the difference reported on your Arizona Form 165, Schedule K-1, is a positive number, enter that difference as an addition. Enter the addition on line B12.

Federally Taxable Arizona Municipal Interest
Enter the amount of any interest income received on obligations of the State of Arizona, or any political subdivisions of Arizona, that is included in your Arizona gross income. Do not enter any Arizona municipal interest that is exempt from federal taxation and not included in your federal adjusted gross income.

Adoption Expenses
You may take this subtraction only in the year the final adoption order is granted. Enter the lesser of the total of the following adoption expenses or $3,000. When figuring your subtraction, you may include expenses incurred in prior years. The following expenses are qualified adoption expenses.
1. Nonreimbursed medical and hospital costs.
2. Adoption counseling.
3. Legal and agency fees.
4. Other nonrecurring costs of adoption.

If filing separately, you may take the entire subtraction, or you may divide the subtraction with your spouse. However, the total subtraction taken by both you and your spouse cannot exceed $3,000.

Qualified Wood Stove, Wood Fireplace, or Gas Fired Fireplace
Arizona law provides a subtraction for converting an existing fireplace to a qualified wood stove, qualified wood fireplace, or gas fired fireplace and non-optional equipment directly related to its operation. You may subtract up to $500 of the costs incurred for converting an existing fireplace to a qualified wood stove, qualified wood fireplace, or gas fired fireplace on your property located in Arizona. When you figure your subtraction, do not include taxes, interest, or other finance charges.

A qualified wood stove or a qualified wood fireplace is a residential wood heater that was manufactured on or after July 1, 1990, or sold at retail on or after July 1, 1992. The residential wood heater must also meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's July 1990 particulate emissions standards.

A qualified gas fired fireplace is any device that burns natural or liquefied petroleum gas as its fuel through a burner system that is permanently installed in the fireplace. The conversion of an existing wood burning fireplace to noncombustible gas logs that are permanently installed in
