How does a partnership or S corporation make the pass-through entity election and pay the tax? Where does a member report the credit?
Georgia law allows certain pass-through entities to make an election to pay tax at the entity level. If the S corporation or Partnership makes this election, they are then called an "Electing Pass-Through Entity." Members of an Electing Pass-Through Entity are eligible for a non-refundable credit on their individual return.
The election must be filed no later than the due date or extended due date of the return. The election can be made annually and is not revocable once made for that tax year.
Indicate that the election is being made by checking Partnership elects to pay the tax at the entity level on GA > screen 1.
Indicate that the election is being made by checking S Corporation elects to pay the tax at the entity level on GA > screen 600S.
e-Filing through Drake Tax is available.
