AB 1577 enactedearly September 2020.CA - 461(l) it is not clear if CA conforms to thetechnical corrections made by CARES. We

StateGuidance/DateGuidance Relief Provisions for CoronavirusOther Informationconform with some modifications such as itbeing permanent. But not clear how the techcorrections effective back as if in TCJA appliesin CA.Appropriations Act and PPP deductions - AB1577 includes: “Any credit or deductionotherwise allowed under this part for anyamount paid or incurred by the taxpayer uponwhich this exclusion is based shall be reducedby the amount of the exclusion allowed underthis section.” AB 1577 was enacted in Sept soafter release of IRS Notice 2020-32.CO – “In June and July 2020, Colorado enactedlegislation, promulgated a regulation and issuedadministrative guidance, all as part of an effortto address the state’s conformity to the InternalRevenue Code (IRC) and the federal CARESAct. Specifically, on June 2, 2020, the ColoradoDepartment of Revenue issued an emergencyregulation in response to several provisions ofthe CARES Act, clarifying that the state’srolling conformity to the IRC applies only on aprospective basis.

Coloradosubsequently enacted H.B. 20-1420, on July 11,2020, which formally decoupled the state fromseveral CARES Act provisions. The Departmentalso released additional administrative guidancefor taxpayers to assist in filing their returnsunder these new rules.” Grant Thornton alert(9/17/20)CT – CARES guidance – Economic impactpayment - There is no Connecticut statutorymodification to include the federal economicimpact payments in Connecticut adjusted grossincome. Therefore, as the federal economic

StateGuidance/DateGuidance Relief Provisions for CoronavirusOther Informationimpact payments are not included in federaladjusted gross income and there is noConnecticut modification to include thesepayments in Connecticut adjusted gross income,said payments are not subject to Connecticutincome tax. Coronavirus-related distributions There are no Connecticut statutorymodifications specific to coronavirus-relateddistributions for purposes of calculatingConnecticut adjusted gross income. Therefore,to the extent that these distributions are includedor excluded from federal adjusted gross incomein a particular year will dictate the Connecticuttax treatment of such distributions in such year.The payer is required to withhold 6.99% fromthe distribution unless the recipient submits aForm CT-W4P to the payer requesting that no ora lesser amount of Connecticut income tax bewithheld. PPP loan forgiveness - There is noConnecticut statutory modification to includethese amounts in the calculation of Connecticutadjusted gross income. Therefore, becauseloans forgiven under the Paycheck ProtectionProgram are excluded from federal adjustedgross income and there is no Connecticutmodification to include these amounts inConnecticut adjusted gross income, such loanforgiveness is not subject to Connecticut incometax. The conclusion is the same for purposes ofthe Connecticut corporation business tax. NOLs- For corporation business tax purposes,Connecticut has its own specific rules for NOLsthat are not impacted by the federalcarryforward and carryback rules.For individual income tax purposes, thecarryback of federal NOLs that affect anindividual’s Connecticut income tax liability areapplied consistent with the Connecticut TaxCourt’s decision in Adams v. Sullivan, 2014WL 4413427 (July 24, 2014) and are subject tothe provisions of Conn. Gen. Stat. § 12-727(b).Note: The NOL provisions that were modifiedby the CARES Act do not affect an individual

StateGuidance/DateGuidance Relief Provisions for CoronavirusOther Informationwith a Connecticut source loss, but with nocorresponding federal loss. Such individualsmust comply with Conn. Agencies Regs. § 12711(b)-6. Excess business losses - There are noConnecticut statutory modifications specific tothe excess business loss limitation under I.R.C §461(l) for purposes of calculating Connecticutadjusted gross income. Therefore, to the extentthat such excess business loss limitationincreases or decreases federal adjusted grossincome in a particular year will dictate theConnecticut tax treatment of such limitation insuch year. CT QIP guidance - QIP guidance Connecticut conforms to the changes made tothe depreciable life of QIP by the CARES Act,but does not conform to the ability to claimbonus depreciation on such assets. If acompany files an amended federal return toreflect the QIP depreciation change, thecompany must file the corresponding amendedcorporation business tax return to report thedepreciation change, except that it mustcalculate the depreciation deduction forConnecticut purposes without regard to theprovisions of I.R.C. § 168(k) (i.e., bonusdepreciation). Alternatively, if a company filesfederal Form 3115 to claim additional QIPdepreciation as a I.R.C. § 481(a) adjustment, itmust report such adjustment on thecorresponding corporation business tax return,except that such adjustment must be calculatedfor Connecticut purposes without regard to theprovisions of I.R.C. § 168(k).HI - The Economic Impact Payments and loanproceeds from the PPP and EIDL programs arenot subject to Hawaii income tax. Paymentsunder the PUA and FPUC programs are subjectto Hawaii income tax. Under current law,forgiven PPP loans are subject to Hawaiiincome tax. However, the Department ofTaxation intends to recommend to the HawaiiState Legislature that Hawaii conform to the

federal treatment of PPP loan forgiveness.Under existing law, unemploymentcompensation paid to employees and the receiptof loan funds, such as funds from PPP loans andEIDLs, are not subject to general excise tax(GET). GET will not be imposed on paymentsreceived under PUA, loan amounts forgivenunder PPP, and EIDL Grants. These amountswill be treated as exclusions from gross receiptsand should not be reported on GET returns.(5/4/20)IA - Iowa Nonconformity: Coronavirus Aid,Relief, & Economic Security (CARES) Act of2020 – (7/14/20) The Department has publishedguidance describing Iowa’s nonconformity withprovisions of the CARES Act of 2020 thatcommonly affect income taxes for individualsand businesses for tax years beginning incalendar year 2018 or 2019. Iowa generallyconforms with federal tax changes, to the extentthey affect Iowa income taxes, for tax yearsbeginning on or after January 1, 2020. ARetroactive provisions of the CARES Act withwhich Iowa does not conform:Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) under theCARES Act. A taxpayer’s PPP loan that isforgiven and properly excluded from federalgross income under section 1106 of the CARESAct in a tax year beginning on or after January1, 2020, will also qualify for exclusion fromincome for Iowa tax purposes. However, Iowais not conformed with section 1106 of theCARES Act for tax years beginning prior toJanuary 1, 2020. If a taxpayer receives PPP loanforgiveness for a tax year beginning prior toJanuary 1, 2020, that discharge of indebtednessmay be considered income for Iowa taxpurposes, unless the income qualifies forexclusion under another applicable provision offederal or Iowa law. Modification of Limitationon Losses for Taxpayers Other thanCorporations (Excess Business Losses) underthe CARES Act - Iowa was not conformed with

the excess business loss limitation for tax year2018, so the temporary suspension of the excessbusiness loss limitation in the CARES Actshould have no effect on the calculation of netincome on 2018 Iowa income tax returns. Fortax year 2019, the excess business losslimitation will apply for Iowa tax purposes, eventhough the limitation does not apply for federalpurposes. Modification of Limitation onBusiness Interest under the CARES Act - Iowais not conformed with this change to the extentit applies retroactively to tax year 2019.Specifically, the ATI percentage used incalculating the deduction limitation is 30% forIowa tax purposes in tax year 2019, even thoughmany taxpayers have the option to use 50% forfederal purposes. Depreciation of QualifiedImprovement Property (QIP) under the CARESAct - Iowa does not conform to this treatmentfor tax years 2016 through 2019, and insteadtreats qualified improvement property placed inservice during those tax years as 39-yearproperty. Bonus depreciation under IRC section168(k) is not allowed for Iowa tax purposes forany tax year. (7/14/20) A taxpayer’s PPP loanthat is forgiven and properly excluded fromfederal gross income under section 1106 of thefederal CARES Act in a tax year beginning onor after January 1, 2020, will also qualify forexclusion from income for Iowa tax purposes.The COVID-19 economic impact paymentsauthorized in section 2201 of the federalCARES Act, whether in the form of a rebate ora refundable tax credit, will not be included inIowa taxable income or added back as part of anindividual’s reportable federal income taxrefund for Iowa individual income tax purposes.(5/29/20)KY – FAQs on CARES - The followinganswers address specific questions asked byCPAs and other tax preparers with regard to theCoronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security
