Abstract: U.S. corporations that have elected to be an interest charge domestic international sales corporation (IC-DISC) file Form 1120-IC-DISC to report their income and deductions. The IC-DISC is not taxed, but IC-DISC shareholders are taxed on their share of IC-DISC income. IRS uses Form 1120-IC-DISC to check the IC-DISC's computation of income. Schedule K (Form 1120-IC-DISC) is used to report income to shareholders. Schedule P (Form 1120-IC-DISC) is used by the IC-DISC to report its dealings with related suppliers.
Current Actions: Questions 2, 7, and 8 on Form 1120-IC-DISC (Schedule O) were deleted. The three deleted questions are a part of the new Schedule N (Form 1120), Foreign Operations of U.S. Corporations, that corporations will attach to their Form 1120-IC-DISC for the 2000 tax year.
