What is required for filing a successful annual tax return?

The following are helpful guidelines to consider when filing the annual tax return:

  • Only utilize alternative apportionment if approved by the municipality
  • Only utilize the tax credit lines for refundable and nonrefundable credits (not CCFs)
  • Input the correct “span period” that the return covers
  • Amended returns must include all municipalities, even if no changes to that municipality
