Colorado Private Letter Ruling Apportions Gain on Sale of Business to Another State

Normally, the sale of a business interest commercially domiciled in Colorado is considered business income, and statutory apportionment rules apply. This would include the gain in the numerator of the apportionment ratio.  In a recent case, however, the business that was sold was a distinct operation with its own administration, manufacturing, and distribution departments outside the state. As such, the Dept. of Rev. determined that the gain on this sale should not be sourced to Colorado.

If you are looking to sell your business, contact an Eide Bailly SALT professional to make sure you remain in compliance throughout the transaction process.
