SECTION 293
Allocation of unrelated business taxable income
Tax (TAX) CHAPTER 60, ARTICLE 13
§ 293. Allocation of unrelated business taxable income. (a) The
portion of the unrelated business taxable income of a taxpayer to be
allocated within this state shall be determined by multiplying its
unrelated business taxable income by an allocation percentage to be
determined by:

(1) ascertaining the percentage which the average value of the
taxpayer's real and tangible personal property in its unrelated trade or
business within the state during the period covered by the taxpayer's
return bears to the average value of all the taxpayer's real and
tangible personal property wherever situated during such period which is
used in its unrelated trade or business (For purposes of this paragraph,
the taxpayer's real property shall include not only such property owned
by the taxpayer but also such property rented to it.);

(2) ascertaining the percentage which the receipts of the taxpayer's
unrelated trade or business, computed on the cash or accrual basis
according to the method of accounting used in the computation of the
taxpayer's unrelated business taxable income, arising during such period
from

(A) sales of tangible personal property by the unrelated trade or
business where shipments are made to points within this state,

(B) services performed within the state by the unrelated trade or
business,

(C) rentals from property of the unrelated trade or business situated
within the state, and

(D) all other receipts earned by the unrelated trade or business
within the state, bear to the total amount of the receipts of the
unrelated trade or business, similarly computed, arising during such
period from all sales of its tangible personal property, services,
rentals and all other transactions, whether within or without the state;

(3) ascertaining the percentage of the total wages, salaries and
other personal service compensation, similarly computed, during such
period of employees of the taxpayer's unrelated trade or business within
the state, except general executive officers, to the total wages,
salaries and other personal service compensation, similarly computed,
during such period of all employees of the unrelated trade or business
within and without the state, except general executive officers; and

(4) adding together the percentages so determined and dividing the
result by the number of percentages; provided, however, that if the
taxpayer does not have a regular place of business outside the state in
which its unrelated trade or business is conducted, the business
allocation percentage shall be one hundred percent.

(b) If it shall appear to the tax commission that the allocation
percentage determined in subdivision (a) of this section does not
properly reflect the activity, business or income of a taxpayer's
unrelated trade or business within the state, the tax commission shall
be authorized, in its discretion, to adjust it by (1) excluding one or
more of the factors therein, (2) including one or more other factors,
such as expenses, purchases, contract values (minus subcontract values),
(3) excluding one or more assets in computing such allocation
percentage, provided the income therefrom is also excluded in
determining unrelated business taxable income or (4) any other similar
or different method calculated to effect a fair and proper allocation of
the income reasonably attributable to this state. The tax commission
from time to time shall publish all rulings of general interest with
respect to any application of the provisions of this subdivision.
