3 USA Business Climate Rankings Georgia vs. Alabama Georgia s Business Climate was named number 1 in the nation by Site Selection Magazine (Site Selection Magazine, November 2013). According to CNBC s 2013 Top States for Business Rankings, Georgia was ranked 8 th in the U.S ranked better than Alabama (ranked 33 rd ). Georgia was ranked 1 st in the U.S. for having the Best Workforce ranked better than Alabama (ranked 25 th ).

According to the Tax Foundation s 2013 State Business Tax Climate Index Rankings, Georgia is ranked 1 st in the Southeastern U.S. and 8 th in the nation for the Lowest Corporate Taxation - better than Alabama which is ranked 19 th in the nation. The Corporate Taxation Index is a measurement of all the standard taxes corporations are typically required to pay in a given state relative to another state.

4 Overview Comparison of Corporate Income Tax Methods

5 Corporate Income Tax Calculation Example In the example below, Georgia's corporate income tax method can, on average, result in 189% lower state corporate income tax payments when compared with corporate income tax payments for Alabama! Calculation Assumptions: The apportionment calculation assumes that a company has $100 Million in gross receipts (sales), $63 Million in cost of goods sold (expenses), $36 Million for other operating expenses, and 30% of the company s sales are accounted for as in-state for Georgia and 60%* for Alabama. The throw-back rule* has been applied to the sales factor for Alabama. For Alabama, all property and payroll are assumed to be (located) in-state and the standard payroll factor and property factor weights have been applied due to the "Three Factor Apportionment Formula with Double-Weighted Sales". This calculation does not take into consideration the various corporate income (job) tax credits that may be offered by each state. Please note that the estimated state corporate income tax obligation would be lower if job tax credits were factored into the analysis. Note: Calculation consultation was provided by Bennett Thrasher CPA Firm, 2010.

The Corporate Taxation Index is a measurement of all the standard taxes corporations are typically required to pay in a given state relative to another state

7 Comparison of Corporate Income Tax Methods When calculating corporate income taxes, states have the option to decide what a company s tax base (e.g. net income, gross receipts, gross profits, etc.) should be and how much of a company s tax base will be subject to the state s corporate income tax rate(s) using state corporate income tax apportionment formulas. Please note that the tax base and state corporate income tax apportionment formulas have a greater impact, than state corporate income tax rates, with regard to the total amount of taxes that a company ultimately pays to the state. Determining a Company s Tax Base Net Income Tax vs. Gross Receipts Tax: Georgia and Alabama both impose a Net Income Tax which only taxes the net income of a company (i.e. a company s gross receipts after all operating expenses AND cost of goods sold have been deducted). Side Note Net Income Tax vs. Gross Receipts Tax: In contrast to the Net Income Tax, some states impose a Gross Receipts Tax which taxes gross receipts essentially taxing gross profits (i.e. revenue or sales). This means that more income is subject to taxation in Gross Receipts Tax states when compared with Net Income Tax states since the gross receipts of a company represents a larger tax base that typically does not deduct operating expenses. This means that a company that isn t profitable, in a given year, would have to pay taxes in the Gross Receipts Tax states but would not be required to pay any taxes in the Net Income Tax states like Georgia and Alabama. Therefore companies with low profit margins will benefit more from being subject to a net income tax (in states like Georgia and Alabama) versus a gross receipts/gross profits tax. Comparison of State Income Tax Rates: Georgia levies a flat 6% corporate income tax rate while Alabama levies a higher, flat 6.5% corporate income tax rate. Accounting for High Expenses/Costs Net Operating Loss (NOL) Benefit: Net Operating Loss (NOL) carry-back and carry-forward provisions allow businesses to carry their losses forward or back to reduce their tax base/taxable income in a given year. Georgia gives businesses 20 years to carry-forward an unlimited amount of losses while Alabama only gives businesses 15 years to carry-forward an unlimited amount of losses. Georgia gives businesses the option to carry-back an unlimited amount of losses while Alabama does not give businesses the option to carry-back losses. Accounting for Out-of-State Gross Receipts Enforcement of the Throwback Rule: States also have the option to enforce the throwback rule meaning that if a corporation earns income that is not taxed by a state in which it has facilities then that income is "thrown back" and taxed in the state where the company has facilities and corporate taxation is enforced. Alabama enforces the throwback rule while Georgia does not enforce the throwback rule and therefore do not tax out-of-state gross receipts. Determining How Much of a Company s Tax Base Will Be Subject to State Corporate Income Taxes State Tax Apportionment Formula: In the U.S., states use a method called apportionment to determine how much of a company s tax base (i.e. federal taxable income) will be subject to their state corporate income tax rate(s). There are three apportionment factors of the traditional state corporate income tax formula : 1.) sales factor (net income or gross profits/receipts), 2.) property factor, and 3.) payroll factor. Single Factor Apportionment Formula: Georgia uses the single factor apportionment formula which only taxes the sales factor. The sales factor is equal to the net income tax base (i.e. gross receipts after operating expenses AND costs of goods sold have been deducted). Three Factor Apportionment Formula: Some states use a basic three factor apportionment corporate income tax formula which taxes the 1.) net income (i.e. gross receipts after operating expenses and costs of goods sold have been deducted), 2.) property, and 3.) payroll of a company giving each factor approximate equal weight. Sources: The Tax Foundation, The Federation of Tax Administrators, 2013.

8 Comparison of Corporate Income Tax Methods continued Determining How Much of a Company s Tax Base Will Be Subject to State Corporate Income Taxes State Tax Apportionment Formula continued: Three Factor Apportionment Formula with Double-Weighted Sales Factor: Alabama uses the three factor apportionment corporate income tax formula with a double-weighted sales factor ; as the name indicates, with the double-weighted sales factor, net income will be given twice the weight as the other two factors in this calculation. All else being equal, this means that a company that has significant amounts of property or payroll in states like Alabama is going to have more of its tax base apportioned and subject to state corporate income taxes because of the three factor apportionment formula which includes property and payroll factors in its apportionment formula when compared with taxation in states like Georgia which apply the single factor apportionment formula that does not include property and payroll factors. Side Note Net Income Tax vs. Gross Receipts Tax: As stated before, some states levy a special type of corporate income tax called a Gross Receipts Tax which taxes a company s gross receipts figure (i.e. revenue or sales) as opposed to the Net Income Tax levied in the Southeastern U.S. states. The Gross Receipts Tax is comparable to a single factor apportionment formula but gross receipts (i.e. a larger tax base) is used for the sales factor as opposed to net income (i.e. a smaller tax base). Even though the Gross Receipts Tax is comparable to a single factor apportionment formula, taxation is typically higher in Gross Receipts Tax states due to the use of the larger gross receipts tax base as opposed to the smaller net income tax base.

The total amount of credit cannot exceed $1,250 per employee per year. Training programs must be approved by the Technical College System of Georgia. The retraining program must be for quality and productivity enhancements and certain software technologies. This tax credit can be used to offset up to 50 percent of a company s state corporate income tax liability. Unused credits can be carried forward for 10 years. These credits can be combined with other tax credits. Hiring Assistance Georgia s Department of Labor (GDOL) assists companies in recruitment by posting job notices, collecting and screening applications and/or résumés, providing interview space, scheduling interviews and hosting job fairs.
