Rs 47:287.480 Special Adjustments By The Secretary

§287.480. Special adjustments by the secretary

Notwithstanding any other provisions of this Part to the contrary, the secretary is authorized to require the use of inventories and to allocate income and deductions among taxpayers and require such returns as follows:

(1) Inventories. Whenever in the opinion of the secretary the use of inventories is necessary in order clearly to determine the income of any taxpayer, inventories shall be taken by such taxpayer on such basis as the secretary may prescribe as conforming as nearly as may be to the best accounting practice in the trade or business and as most clearly reflecting the income.

(2) Allocation between related businesses. In any case of two or more organizations, trades, or businesses, whether or not incorporated, whether or not organized in the United States, and whether or not affiliated, owned or controlled directly or indirectly by the same interests, the secretary may distribute, apportion, or allocate gross income, deductions, credits, or allowances between or among such organizations, trades, or businesses, if he determines that such distribution, apportionment, or allocation is necessary in order to prevent evasion of taxes or clearly to reflect the income of any of such organizations, trades, or businesses.

(3) Consolidated returns.

(a) Consolidated or combined returns are not allowed under this Part except as required by the secretary pursuant to this Paragraph.

(b) For purposes of this Section, whenever a corporation which is required to file an income tax return, is affiliated with or related to any other corporation through stock ownership by the same interests or as parent or subsidiary corporations, or whose income is regulated through contract or other arrangement, the secretary may require such consolidated statements as in his opinion are necessary, if any, in order to determine the taxable income received by any one of the affiliated or related corporations.

(c)(i) Whenever two corporations which are each required to file an income tax return are affiliated corporations as defined in Section 1504 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, and

(aa) If one corporation transfers all or substantially all of its Louisiana assets to the other corporation, and

(bb) If the corporations involved in the transfer file their income tax returns in accordance with the separate accounting method as set forth in R.S. 47:287.94,

then notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, such transaction may, at the election of the secretary or the taxpayers, be treated as if the transaction was a reorganization as described in Section 368(a)(1)(F) of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended.

(ii) If a transaction qualifies under Subparagraph (3)(c)(i) and if an election is made to treat the transaction as a Section 368(a)(1)(F) reorganization, then in determining the tax attributes to be carried over to the transferee, the transferee shall succeed only to those items associated with the transferred assets.

(4) The foregoing Paragraphs are operative whether or not a federal income tax return for the taxable year is actually filed by the taxpayer and whether or not such adjustments have been made at federal law.
