Dollin Inc. is incorporated under Virginia law and has its corporate headquarters in Richmond. Dollin is a distributor; it purchases tangible goods from manufacturers and sells the goods to retailers. It has a branch office through which it sells goods in the United Kingdom and owns 100 percent of a French corporation (French Dollin) through which it sells goods in France. Dollin’s financial records provide the following information for the year:
Before-tax net income from sales:
Domestic sales $ 967,900
UK sales (foreign source income) …………… 415,000
Dividend income: Brio Inc. ………………….. $ 8,400
French Dollin (foreign source income) ……… 33,800
• Dollin pays state income tax in Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. All three states tax their apportioned share of Dollin’s net income from world-wide sales. Because Virginia is Dollin’s commercial domicile, it also taxes Dollin’s U.S. source (but not foreign source) dividend income net of any federal dividends-received deduction. The states have the following apportionment factors and tax rates:
• Dollin paid $149,200 income tax to the United Kingdom.
• Brio Inc. is a taxable U.S. corporation. Dollin owns 2.8 percent of Brio’s stock.
• The $33,800 dividend from French Dollin is a distribution of after-tax earnings with respect to which French Dollin paid $17,000 French income tax.
• Dollin elects to claim the foreign tax credit rather than to deduct foreign income taxes. Solely on the basis of the above facts, compute the following:
a. Dollin’s state income tax for Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
b. Dollin’s federal income tax. Assume that Dollin paid the state taxes during the year, and no state income tax is allocable to foreign source income.
