Important Pass-Through Entity Tax Deadlines
06.06.22 | SALT Chat
Following up on my earlier blog Pass-Through Entity Tax Election – Don’t Wait Until Next Year to Decide, here are quick reminders for upcoming deadlines for the Pass-Through Entity Tax (PTET) in key states.
New York recently extended the 2022 election deadline until September 15, 2022. An eligible pass-through entity (PTE) that missed the original March 15, 2022 deadline has a second chance to participate in the PTET. To have a valid election under the extended deadline, however, an electing PTE must make a required estimated payment with the election. For example, an entity making an election after March 15, 2022, and before June 15, 2022, should pay 25% of the required annual payment. To learn more about the required estimated PTET payment, see this article.
New Jersey extended the 2021 Business Alternative Income Tax (BAIT) election deadline until June 15, 2022. For a calendar-year taxpayer, the 2021 BAIT election and return were originally due on March 15, 2022. An eligible PTE still has an opportunity to elect into the NJ BAIT for the 2021 tax year. In addition, the 2022 estimated BAIT payment due date that fell between March 15, 2022, and June 15, 2022, has been extended to June 15, 2022.
To be eligible to make the California PTET election for the 2022 tax year, a qualified PTE must make an estimated tax payment on or before June 15, 2022. The payment must be the greater of 50% of the elective tax paid during the 2021 year or $1,000. If the PTE making an election for 2022 did not opt in to the 2021 PTET, the electing PTE is required to pay $1,000 by June 15, 2022. Failure to make this June payment will render PTEs ineligible to make the election for the 2022 tax year.
