Hanna v. State of Georgia

Date: August 11, 2011

Georgia Supreme Court

This case concerns the tax treatment of federal S-corporations, which are not recognized as S-corporations for state purposes.  The Georgia Court of Appeals only allowed the taxpayer to subtract a small percentage of the total pass-through income from his adjusted gross income on his state tax return.  This created a double standard for these S-corporations and exposed their shareholders to a risk of duplicative taxation.  NFIB submitted a brief to the state Supreme Court requesting that the court review and overturn the court of appeals decision.

Status:  DECIDED. NFIB amicus brief filed in support of petition for review on 05/08/09.  Review was denied 09/28/09.
