The Legislature does, therefore, declare that this article be construed so as to accomplish the foregoing purposes.
In recognition of the fact that corporate business is increasingly conducted on a national and international basis, it is the intent of the Legislature to adopt a combined system of income tax reporting for corporations. A separate accounting system is sometimes not adequate to accurately measure the income of multistate and multinational corporations doing business in this state and sometimes creates tax disadvantages for West Virginia corporations in competition with those multistate and multinational corporations. Therefore, it is the intent of the Legislature to capture lost revenue with adoption of a combined reporting tax base.
