IA 130 GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

IA 130 Form (pdf) Section I Section II
Additional examples that include completed forms

Also see instructions for line 62, IA 1040.

Nonresidents of Iowa may not claim this credit.

Part-year residents of Iowa may claim this credit ONLY if any income earned while an Iowa resident was also taxed by another state or foreign country.

The tax imposed on your income is the tax shown on the income tax return you filed with that state or foreign country. “Tax imposed” is the tax calculated from the tax formula/tables on the other state/foreign country’s tax return, less any non-refundable credits. Do not reduce this figure by the tax withheld or estimated tax payment made to the other state/foreign country.

You must complete a separate IA 130 for each state or foreign country. Separate IA 130s are not required for foreign taxes paid by mutual funds or other regulated investment companies.

Note: The credit or portion of the credit must not exceed the amount of the Iowa tax imposed on the same income which was taxed by the other state or foreign country.

Shareholders of S corporations who have income from the corporation that was apportioned outside Iowa by using the IA 134 (S Corp Apportionment Credit) and not taxed by Iowa cannot claim an out-of-state credit on this income.

Attach the following to your Iowa return:

  • The IA 130
  • The income tax return you filed with the other state
  • If you are claiming the credit for taxes paid to a foreign country, include federal form 1116, Computation of Foreign Tax Credit if it is required with your federal return.

If you were assessed a minimum tax or a special tax on a lump sum distribution by another state, see the following special instructions.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR MINIMUM TAX OR LUMP-SUM DISTRIBUTION TAX:

  • If you were assessed a minimum tax or a special tax on a lump-sum distribution by another state or items similarly taxed on your Iowa return, you must separately compute an out-of-state credit for each of these items. Do not include minimum tax or a special lump-sum tax when computing the regular tax credit. Please write “Minimum Tax” or “Lump-sum Tax” next to the amount on line 6 of Section I or II on the IA 130.
  • Minimum Tax -- Report the amount of preference items taxed by the other state on line 1. However, a preference item may be included in line 1 only if it is also a preference item for Iowa purposes. Enter on line 2 the amount of Iowa preference items. Report on line 4 the minimum tax figure from line 45, IA 1040. On line 6, report only the portion of the minimum tax liability from the other state which applies to preference items which were also taxed by Iowa.
  • Lump-Sum Distribution -- Report on line 1 the amount of distribution subject to special lump-sum tax by the other state (do not include distribution taxed by other state as part of gross income). Enter on line 2 the total lump-sum distribution taxed by Iowa. Report on line 4 the Iowa Lump-Sum Distribution Tax from line 44, IA 1040.
