Corporate Income Tax is Computed at 7.4%

Corporations that are taxable in Idaho and another State or Country or part of a unitary group of corporations, use a three-factor formula to ascertain how much of the business is conducted in Idaho.

The apportionment formula is made up of a property factor, a payroll factor, and a sales factor. These three factors, with the sales factor being double weighted for all taxpayers (except for electrical and telephone companies) are totaled and divided by four to compute the Idaho apportionment factor.

The Idaho apportionment factor is then applied to the business income of the corporation to compute income assigned to Idaho. Non-business income allocable to Idaho is added to the income apportioned to Idaho to arrive at Idaho taxable income.
