Excess inclusion income (EII) must be included in Arkansas corporate income tax returns. Arkansas has adopted Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code, which includes provisions on excess inclusion income in IRC §860.
If a taxpayer files a consolidated Arkansas return, excess inclusion income should be recognized on a separate entity basis, at the member company level, rather than on a consolidated basis. Arkansas law requires each member of an Arkansas consolidated return to calculate its taxable income separately. No exception has been made for excess inclusion income.
