A. Definition.“Louisiana taxable income” of a resident estate or trust means the taxable income of the estate or trust determined in accordance with federal law for the same taxable year, as specifically modified by the provisions contained in Subsection B of this Section, less a federal income tax deduction to be computed following the provisions of R.S. 47:287.83 and 287.85.

(1) There shall be added to federal taxable income, unless already included therein:

(a) Interest on obligations of a state or political or municipal subdivision thereof, other than Louisiana and its municipalities, title to which obligations vested with the resident estate, trust, or fiduciary on or subsequent to January 1, 1980.

(b) Net income taxes paid to any state or political or municipal subdivision thereof within the taxable year.

(c) Repealed by Acts 1998, No. 61, § 2 .

(b) Deductions from gross income or depletion.

(i) In computing net income in the case of oil and gas wells, there shall be allowed as a deduction cost depletion as defined under federal law or percentage depletion as provided for in Item (ii) whichever is greater.
