Effective with tax year 2015, the New York Department of Taxation and Finance discontinued the separate Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax (MCTMT) filing requirement. In 2015 UltraTax CS®, the New York tab located in File > Client Properties will no longer include a checkbox for the Metropolitan Commuter Tax (MTA).
Preparers will still need to enter specific data in UltraTax CS to calculate the tax, as it’s now reported on the New York personal income tax return (due April 18, 2016). In applicable Federal Screens C and F, assign state use code and indicate Code 17 Form MTA-6. UltraTax CS will provide a MTA Worksheet to review the tax calculation reported on the New York income tax return.
