(a) Requirement of declaration. -- Every corporation subject to tax under this article shall make a declaration of estimated tax for the taxable year if its West Virginia taxable income can be reasonably expected to exceed ten thousand dollars.

(b) Definition of estimated tax. -- The term "estimated tax" means the amount which a corporation estimates to be its income tax under this article for the taxable year, less an amount which such corporation estimates to be the sum of any credits allowable against the tax.

(c) Contents of declaration. -- The declaration shall contain such pertinent information as the tax commissioner may by forms or regulations prescribe, including, but not limited to, such detailed information as may be necessary to clearly reflect the estimated West Virginia taxable income of the corporation for the taxable year.

(d) Amendment of declaration. -- A corporation may make amendments of a declaration filed during the taxable year under regulations prescribed by the tax commissioner.

(e) Time for filing declaration. -- If the requirements of subsection (a) are first met before the first day of the fourth month of the taxable year a declaration of estimated tax of a corporation shall be filed on or before the fifteenth day of the fourth month of the taxable year, except that if the requirements of subsection (a) are first met --

(1) After the last day of the third month and before the first day of the sixth month of the taxable year, the declaration shall be filed on or before the fifteenth day of the sixth month of the taxable year, or

(2) After the last day of the fifth month and before the first day of the ninth month of the taxable year, the declaration shall be filed on or before the fifteenth day of the ninth month of the taxable year, or

(3) After the last day of the eighth month and before the first day of the twelfth month of the taxable year, the declaration shall be filed on or before the fifteenth day of the twelfth month of the taxable year.

(f) Declaration of estimated tax of one hundred dollars or less. -- A declaration of estimated tax of a corporation having a total estimated tax for the taxable year of one hundred dollars or less may be filed at any time on or before the fifteenth day of the first month of the succeeding taxable year under regulations of the tax commissioner.

(g) Return as declaration or amendment. -- If on or before the fifteenth day of the second month of the succeeding taxable year a corporation files its return for the taxable year for which the declaration is required, and pays therewith the full amount of the tax shown to be due on the return:

(1) Such return shall be considered as such corporation's declaration, if no declaration was required to be filed during the taxable year, but is otherwise required to be filed on or before the fifteenth day of the first month of the succeeding taxable year.

(2) Such return, if filed on or before such applicable date shall be considered an amendment permitted by subsection (d) if the tax shown on the return is greater than the estimated tax shown in a declaration previously made.
