Domestic Production Activities Deduction
Overview for VT Tax Year
The domestic production activities deduction enacted as section 199 of I.R.C. in 2004 passes
through for Vermont income tax purposes.
The Federal deduction applies to all U.S. taxpayers—corporations, S-corps, partnerships,
individuals, estates and trusts. Pass-through entities compute the deduction at the individual
partner or shareholder level and is taken as an adjustment to AGI on Federal Form 1040 or
I.R.C. Section 199 defines “production activities” more broadly that just manufacturing. It
includes, for example, construction, film production, farming, software development,
architectural services, and food and beverage production. Click here for IRS information on
