Tax Law -- Article 9-A, Sections 210.3(d) and (e)

CT-324-I
(9/04)

Who must file this form
General business corporations (Article 9-A) that claimed the optional depreciation under Tax Law sections 210.3(d) and 210.3(e) on certain qualified property acquired from January 1, 1964, through December 31, 1968, must file Form CT-324 and calculate their federal and New York State gain or loss on such property. Any federal gain or loss used in computing federal taxable income is disregarded in computing entire net income (ENI). Therefore, any federal gain on the sale or other disposition of qualified property must be deducted from ENI, and any federal loss on the sale or other disposition of qualified property must be added to ENI.

Optional depreciation deduction under Tax Law section 210.3(e)
The taxpayer may elect to deduct from allocated income up to double the amount of federal depreciation on qualified property, provided that ENI is computed without any federal depreciation for the same property. (See definition of qualified property under section 210.3 (e) below.) If the qualified property is used or to be used for research and development in the experimental or laboratory sense, the taxpayer may elect to deduct the total amount of the expenditures paid or incurred in the tax year, provided that ENI is computed without the deduction of any such expenditures and without any depreciation deduction for the same property for the tax year and the following tax year(s). The total of all optional depreciation deductions allowed in any tax year(s) may not exceed the cost or other basis of the property multiplied by the taxpayer's business allocation percentage for the first year the taxpayer deducts such depreciation.
