2014 Commercial Activity Tax (CAT) Changes

Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, changes to the annual minimum tax (AMT) will go into effect. While taxpayers with receipts of $1 million or less will see no increase in their CAT liabilities, if you have taxable gross receipts in excess of $1 million, you will see an increase in your annual minimum tax amount. The increase is as follows:

 

Taxable Gross Receipts

$1 Million or less

$150

No Additional Tax

More than $1 Million but less than or equal to $2 Million

$800

0.26% x (Taxable Gross Receipts - $1 Million)

$2,100

0.26% x (Taxable Gross Receipts - $1 Million)

More than $4 Million

$2,600

0.26% x (Taxable Gross Receipts - $1 Million)
