Changes to 2002 Forms

2002 Updates to Form 100W

Revision Date: 04/28/2004

Revision Details: Form 100W - Corporations Filing a Combined Report Booklet, Pages 3, 6, 9, 12 and 14

The Internet version of the instructions has been revised. In Farmer Bros. Co. 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 statue that is held to be unconstitutional is invalid and unenforceable. Therefore, the deduction is not available.
