Add What's Changed to the beginning of the instructions for Schedule H (100S):Sh.

Forms, Schedules, and instructions impacted by the court decision in Farmer Bros. Co. v. Franchise Tax Board (2003) have been revised to disallow any deduction taken based on R&TC Section 24402. In Farmer Bros. Col. V. Franchise Tax Board (2003) 108 Cal App 4th, 134 Cal Rptr. 2nd 390, the California Court of Appeal found that the R&TC Section 24402 deductible dividend provision discriminated against interstate commerce in violation of the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. R&TC Section 24402 provided for a deduction to the extent that the dividend payer was taxable in California. A statute that is held to be unconstitutional is invalid and unenforceable. Therefore, the deduction is not available.

  • Schedule H (100S) Instructions, Page 28, Part II, are deleted in full.
  • Schedule H (100S) Instructions, Page 28, Part II, explanation added:

It should read:

In no event will a R&TC Section 24411 deduction be allowed with respect to a dividend which was eliminated under R&TC Section 25106.
