How to enter Virginia PTE in ProConnect Tax

by Intuit Updated 4 months ago

Recent PTE legislation

Virginia recently passed legislation making changes to their pass-through entity tax. Tax bulletin 23-3 details the changes. 

The new legislation repeals the requirement that restricted qualifying pass-through entities to those 100 percent owned by natural persons or persons eligible to be shareholders of an S corporation. 

Updated requirements for eligible owners

This requirement was replaced with an eligible owner requirement that allows any PTE to make the PTET election, but limits who’s eligible to claim the refundable PTET credit. 

Eligible owners under the new law are direct owners of a PTE who are a natural person subject to Virginia individual income tax, or estates or trusts subject to Virginia fiduciary income tax.

We plan to release an update on April 20 for these changes.

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