Office Announcements
2022 IT-204-LL Returns
Completed 2022 IT-204-LL returns are being mailed to clients for review and signature. Please be sure to return your signed forms, along with any updated bank account information, to our office in advance of the March 15 deadline.

Please note: If documents for personal tax returns are not submitted for the 2022 tax season by March 15, there is a good chance that an extension will need to be filed on your behalf.

  • Filing an extension simply moves the filing deadline from April 18 to October 15.
  • If you anticipate receiving a refund on your return, no action is required on your part at the time the extension is filed.
  • If you typically end up owing on your return, your accountant will advise that you submit an estimated payment at the time the extension is filed to avoid any penalties.
  • Allied CPAs, PC does not charge an additional fee for filing an extension.
Eblast Survey: Each month we include this survey question at the end of our eblast. Recently there has been some friendly debate about whether clients are getting all the way to the end of the eblast to see the question. SO... this month we've moved the survey right up here to the top to find out if YOU find the eblast content relevant!

It is our sincere hope that these eblasts are beneficial to our clients. Thank you for your feedback, it is appreciated!

NYS Pass-through Entity Tax (PTET)
The PTET is an optional tax that partnerships or New York S corporations may annually elect to pay on certain income for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2021.

If an eligible partnership or eligible New York S corporation (electing entity) elects to pay the PTET, its partners, members, or shareholders subject to tax under Article 22 (personal income tax) may be eligible for a PTET credit on their New York State income tax returns.

Who can make the election
Only an authorized person may make this election on behalf of an eligible partnership or eligible S corporation. Tax professionals may not make this election on behalf of their clients.
The following types of businesses are not eligible to opt in:
  • single-member LLCs (unless they elect to be treated as an S corporation for New York purposes)
  • sole proprietorships
  • trusts
  • non-profit corporations
  • corporations that are not New York S corporations

When to make the election
An S corporation intending to file as a resident S corporation for 2022 must certify, when it files its annual PTET return or extension, that all its shareholders are residents of New York for purposes of Article 22.

For PTET taxable years 2023 and later, the eligible entity may opt in on or after January 1 but no later than March 15.

The election to opt in to the PTET must be made online on an annual basis and is irrevocable after the due date of its first PTET estimated payment.
