Document ID Corporate
Summary During the 2018 Session, the Virginia General Assembly enacted House Bill 798 (2018 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 807), which requires multistate debt buyers to apportion their income to Virginia using a special method of apportionment (“Debt Buyer Apportionment”). Under Debt Buyer Apportionment, debt buyers are required to use a single factor method of apportionment based on sales and market-based sourcing methods to source certain sales that consist of money recovered on debt. These final guidelines are published by the Department of Taxation (“the Department”) to provide guidance to taxpayers by 12/31/2019 regarding the apportionment method and market-based sourcing methods that apply to debt buyers, as required by the second enactment clause of House Bill 798.
