Chris Lutz Provides Insight to Tax Analysts – “New Mexico Not Entitled to Exclude Payroll Factor in Bank’s Income Apportionment”

Tax Analyists - State Tax Notes 01/22/2019

An article published by Tax Analysts discusses the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department failing to prove it was entitled to exclude the payroll factor from the state's apportionment formula for financial institutions. In a ruling for the taxpayer, Discover Bank, the administrative hearings office found that the department did not carry its burden showing that eliminating the payroll factor from the apportionment formula was warranted.

State and Local Tax attorney, Chris Lutz, stated, "The judge was essentially saying that the department's actions fell somewhere between reasonable but short of clear and cogent."
