  • New Jersey: The state’s tax court held for the taxpayer, in a case concerning the state’s addback statute. The court found the taxpayer was entitled to a refund of corporation business tax (CBT) when its subsidiary filed CBT returns and paid CBT on its royalty income. The requested refund was based on the taxpayer deducting the full amount of royalties paid to the subsidiary.
  • Washington State: The Department of Revenue concluded that an internet-based company that matched music teachers and students, both inside and outside the state, was required to “throw out” certain receipts in apportioning its income for B&O purposes.
