Are distributions from an S Corporation to stockholders subject to the Tennessee Hall income tax?

A distribution reported on a federal IRS Form 1120S Schedule K-1 is a taxable dividend under Tennessee income tax law. Tennessee income tax is not controlled by federal tax law. Tennessee law taxes dividends from stock and Tennessee courts have defined a dividend as “return upon stock.” An S Corporation distribution is a dividend from stock and therefor is taxable.
