MS Code § 27-13-13 (2015) What's This?

(1) In the case of organizations doing business both within and without Mississippi, the value of the capital employed in this state shall be determined by first computing the ratio between (1) the real and tangible personal property owned in Mississippi and gross receipts from business carried on in Mississippi, and (2) the total real and tangible personal property owned and gross receipts wherever located and from wherever received. Said ratio then shall be applied to the total capital stock, surplus, undivided profits and true reserves and the result of that application shall be the capital employed in this state. Provided, however, that the amount of the determined capital in Mississippi shall in no case be less than the assessed value of the Mississippi property of the organization for the year preceding the year in which the return is due.

(2) (a) For the purpose of this section, for tax returns for tax years ending before January 1, 1999, an organization which uses a formula method of apportionment in making income tax returns to this state shall determine its gross receipts from business carried on in Mississippi by applying to total unitary receipts the ratio achieved, or which would be achieved, by such formula and adding to the result of such application any nonunitary Mississippi receipts.

(b) For the purpose of this section, for tax returns for tax years ending on or after January 1, 1999, the gross receipts of an organization that is required to use a formula method of apportionment in making income tax returns to this state shall be the same (both as to gross receipts from business carried on in Mississippi and gross receipts wherever located) as the gross receipts (or sales) used for the receipts or sales factor in the applicable income tax formula. However, gross receipts from business carried on in Mississippi, for the purposes of this section, shall also include any receipts from the taxpayer's business operations which are not apportioned but rather are directly allocated or assigned to this state. If the taxpayer is required to use a formula method of apportionment in making income tax returns which does not have a receipts or sales factor, then the receipts factor for the franchise tax formula shall be determined by regulation of the commission.

(c) For purposes of this section, for tax returns for tax years ending on or after December 31, 2001, the ratio described in subsection (1) of this section shall include all gross receipts as specified in paragraph (b) of this subsection and where a taxpayer owns a direct or indirect interest in a flow-through entity, the taxpayer shall include in the ratio its portion of the flow-through entity's (i) real and tangible personal property owned in Mississippi and gross receipts from business carried on in Mississippi, and (ii) total real and tangible property owned and gross receipts wherever located and from wherever received. The taxpayer shall include its portion of the flow-through entity's assessed value of Mississippi property when determining its assessed value of Mississippi property. A flow-through entity's real property, tangible personal property, gross receipts and assessed value of property shall include its portion of these same items of any flow-through entity in which it owns a direct or indirect interest. For purposes of this section, flow-through entity is every form of organization other than a corporation, association or joint-stock company or other organization which would qualify for exemption under Section 27-13-63 if the organization were a corporation, association or joint-stock company.

(d) For purposes of this section, receipts for sales to a Mississippi distribution facility of pharmaceutical products by a major supplier are not included in the Mississippi receipts in computing the apportionment ratio. As used in this paragraph:

(i) "Major supplier" means a company or group of affiliated companies (as defined in Section 27-7-37) who ship at least One Hundred Million Dollars ($ 100,000,000.00) annually of pharmaceutical products to a Mississippi distribution facility.

(ii) "Mississippi distribution facility" means a distribution facility that received funding from the "Mississippi Industry Incentive Financing Revolving Fund" to open a facility in Mississippi and construction on the facility was begun between July 1, 2010, and December 31, 2010.
