The Tax Management Portfolio, Income Taxes: Special Problems in Formulary Apportionment includes a review of constitutional principles and focuses on distortion in the apportionment of income. It is not intended to be an exhaustive review of basic state apportionment principles. Rather, references are made to the laws of certain jurisdictions for illustrative purposes. As with all state taxation, relevant statutes, regulations, administrative decisions and case law should be consulted for specific guidance.
