How to enter Colorado PTE in Lacerte

SOLVEDby Intuit30Updated March 28, 2023

Down below we'll go over how to enter PTE for Colorado on Individual, Partnership, and S Corporate returns in Lacerte.

SALT Parity Act Election

Beginning in tax year 2022, partnerships and S corporations may elect to be subject Colorado income tax at the entity level pursuant to the SALT Parity Act. The election is binding upon all partners or shareholders, regardless of whether the partner is an individual, corporation, or other legal entity. The election applies to, and Colorado tax must be paid with respect to, both resident and nonresident partners and shareholders.

Each partner or shareholder is allowed a credit against their Colorado income tax liability equal to the share of the tax imposed upon and paid by the entity with respect to the partner’s or shareholder’s income. All other credits are passed through to the partner or shareholder and must be claimed on a return filed by the partner or shareholder along with the refundable SALT Parity Act credit. When a partnership or S corporation makes the SALT Parity Act election, all partners or shareholders must add back any deduction taken under section 199A of the Internal Revenue Code.
