If you prepare Montana returns for pass-through entities, be aware that they are subject to certain withholding requirements.
The entity may qualify for a waiver from the withholding requirements for certain owners if the owner files a Pass-Through Entity Owner Tax Agreement (Form PT-AGR).
An owner may file Form PT-AGR if they are a:
- Nonresident individual, estate, or trust;
- Tax-exempt entity administered outside Montana;
- Foreign C corporation; or
- Domestic second-tier pass-through entity
A domestic second-tier pass-through entity is a pass-through entity that is owned by resident taxpayers, including domestic C corporations and other entities whose principal place of business or administration is in Montana.
Forms PT-AGR are filed separately. Do not attach these forms to an income tax return.
