This bill allows a Business Profits Tax (BPT) deduction for the full amount of fair, reasonable, and customary compensation for members and owners of business organizations that are subject to the Business Profits Tax (BPT). The Department of Revenue Administration states this bill will result in a decrease in BPT owed, resulting in a decrease in General Fund and Education Trust Fund revenue. The Department is not able to calculate the potential revenue decrease as it does not collect information on the compensation for members and owners of business organizations.
