Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on [[date]]. However, limited UltraTax CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline.

Links to our most popular tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

Use the state tabs at the bottom of the Apportionment Information window to enter state-specific apportionment information. State tabs appear only if you have added states to the return and if additional apportionment information is required.

To enter state-specific apportionment information, click the appropriate state tab at the bottom of the Apportionment Information window.

Special information for processing California returns

UltraTax CS provides predefined statement dialogs for factor components requiring detail information. UltraTax CS uses the information you enter in the statement dialogs in the Everywhere column on the form for that component. UltraTax CS ignores amounts from the Everywhere / (Override) column for that component.

Fields & buttons

General information group box

UltraTax CS uses the information you enter in this group box to complete form fields and answer questions that are not addressed in the Apportionment spreadsheet.

Enter 1 if more than 50 percent of gross business receipts are from agricultural, extractive, or certain financial activities, and UltraTax CS uses the three-factor method of apportionment with a single-weighted sales factor to calculate the average apportionment percentage. Enter 2 or leave the field blank and UltraTax CS uses the single sales factor. Enter the code directly or select from the drop-down list.

The activities that use the three-factor method of apportionment are:

  • Extractive or agricultural business activities are qualified business activities for all taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 1993. Extractive business activities are activities relating to the production, refining, or processing of oil, natural gas, or mineral ore. Agricultural business activities means activities relating to any stock, dairy, poultry, fruit, furbearing animal, truck farm, plantation, ranch, nursery, or range. Other activities may qualify. See R&TC Section 25128(d)(2) and Cal. Code Regs., tit.18 sections 25128, 25128-1, and 25128-2 for more information.
