What is the passthrough withholding requirement?

An S corporation, or a limited liability company filing as an S corporation, is required to withhold income tax at the highest individual income tax rate from the year-end distributive share of North Dakota income of its nonresident shareholders whose distributive share of North Dakota income is $1,000 or greater.  For the tax years prior to 2014, the withholding requirement only applies to nonresident individuals.  Starting with the 2014 tax year, the definition of a "nonresident shareholder" for a passthrough entity withholding return purposes was expanded to include nonresident trusts, nonresident grantor trusts, and passthrough entities with a commercial domicile outside of North Dakota.  The applicable rate for each year is set out in Form 60 and its instructions.  The total withholding must be paid in full with the S corporation return when it is filed.
