Land does not qualify. Manufacturing equipment (new to the State of Indiana) qualifies for a deduction from assessed value over a ten year period. Equipment not used in direct production, such as office equipment, does not qualify. New real estate investments options can have abatement terms from one to a maximum of ten years.

Corporate Income Tax

Corporate Income Tax

The Corporate Adjusted Gross Income Tax is calculated at a flat 8.5 percent of adjusted gross income. Adjusted gross income is a company’s federal adjusted gross income with certain adjustments. This method of determination simplifies tax calculations for corporations and does not apply to S corporations and not-for-profit organizations.

Single-Sales Factor

Single-Sales Factor

Indiana is phasing in the single-sales factor for apportioning corporate income tax. Indiana had determined its share of an interstate or international corporation’s taxable income by weighing the Indiana portion of a company’s property and the proportion of its employees in Indiana. The single-sales factor will calculate the Indiana portion based solely on the portion of a company’s sales in Indiana.
