Data Current as of: 8/6/2010
Section 17 of said chapter 62, as so appearing, is hereby amended by striking out subsection (d) and inserting in place thereof the following subsection:-
(d) A partner's distributive share of an item of income, loss, deduction or credit shall be determined by the partnership agreement, but the distributive share shall be determined in accordance with the partner's interest in the partnership, determined by taking into account all facts and circumstances, if: (i) the allocation to a partner under the agreement of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit, or any item thereof, has no substantial economic effect; or (ii) the partnership agreement does not provide as to the partner's distributive share of income, gain, loss, deduction or credit, or item thereof. The partner shall include the distributive share of income, loss, deduction or credit in the partner's return for the taxable year during which or with which the taxable year of the partnership ends. Except as the context otherwise requires and subject to rules or regulations that the commissioner may adopt, the determination of a partner's distributive share shall take into account rules and principles developed under the Code and any regulations promulgated thereunder, and adjusted as required or appropriate to properly reflect income and other tax items for Massachusetts tax purposes.
