	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 76, as amended,  Committee on Budget and Fiscal Review
  Committee on Public Safety  .  Income
taxation: NOLs: credits: cigarettes and other tobacco products tax:
oil severance tax.   Committee on Public Safety:
Inmates: incentive credits.  
   Existing law provides time credit for work performance and good
behavior to prisoners confined to a county jail, industrial farm, or
road camp, or any city jail, industrial farm, or road camp.
Specifically, except regarding certain prisoners who are limited to
15% credit against sentenced time, existing law provides that a term
of 4 days will be deemed to have been served for every 2 days spent
in actual custody in one of these facilities, except that a term of 6
days will be deemed to have been served for every 4 days in actual
custody for prisoners required to register as sex offenders,
prisoners committed for a serious felony, or prisoners with a prior
conviction for a serious or violent felony.  
   This bill would instead provide that prisoners sentenced to state
prison for whom the sentence is executed, except for those required
to register as sex offenders, committed for a serious felony, or with
a previous conviction for a serious or violent felony, who are
confined in a city or county jail, industrial farm, or road camp,
from the date of arrest until state prison credits are applicable,
shall have one day deducted from his or her period of confinement for
every day the prisoner served in a city or county jail, industrial
farm, or road camp. The bill would provide that a prisoner sentenced
to state prison who is confined in a city or county jail, industrial
farm, or road camp may not receive the day-for-day credit if it
appears by the record that the prisoner refused to satisfactorily
perform labor or failed to satisfactorily comply with rules and
regulations, as specified. The bill would provide that, for prisoners
otherwise in a county jail, industrial farm, or road camp, or any
city jail, industrial farm, or road camp for a crime committed on or
after the effective date of this bill, except those subject to the
15% limitation on credits noted above, a term of 6 days will be
deemed to have been served for every 4 days spent in actual custody.
Because this bill would change the punishment for crimes, it would
impose a state-mandated local program.  
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.  
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.  
   This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as
an urgency statute.  
   (1) Existing law allows individual and corporate taxpayers to
utilize net operating losses and carryovers of those losses for
purposes of offsetting their individual and corporate tax
liabilities. Existing law allows net operating losses attributable to
taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2011, to be
carrybacks to each of the preceding 2 taxable years. 

   This bill would delete those net operating loss carryback
provisions.  
   (2) The Corporation Tax Law provides for taxable years beginning
on or after July 1, 2008, that any credit that is an eligible credit,
as defined, may be assigned to any eligible assignee, as defined.
 
   This bill would provide that the credits may be assigned only on
an original return that is filed on or before the effective date of
this bill.  
   (3) The Cigarette and Tobacco Products Tax Law, the violation of
which is a crime, imposes a tax on every distributor of cigarettes
and tobacco products at specified rates, including additional taxes
imposed under the Tobacco Tax and Health Protection Act of 1988
(Proposition 99) and the California Families and Children Act of 1998
(Proposition 10). That law imposes a tax upon the distribution of
tobacco products at a tax rate which is equivalent to the combined
rate of all taxes imposed on cigarettes, which is deposited in
specified accounts.  
   This bill would, commencing on October 1, 2009, impose an
additional excise tax on the distribution of cigarettes at the rate
of $0.075 for each cigarette distributed, which would, under
Proposition 99, impose an equivalent tax rate on the distribution of
tobacco products. This bill would also impose a tax upon the
distribution of tobacco products at the same equivalent tax rate. The
bill would impose a floor stock tax and require a dealer or
wholesaler to file a return with the State Board of Equalization
showing the number of cigarettes in his or her possession or under
his or her control on that date, as specified, and to remit the tax
to the board. The revenues collected from the additional tax, except
as specified, would be deposited in the General Fund. 

   Because this bill would impose new requirements under the
Cigarette and Tobacco Products Law, the violation of which is a
crime, it would impose a state-mandated local program. 

   (4) Existing law imposes various taxes, including taxes on the
privilege of engaging in certain activities. The Fee Collection
Procedures Law, the violation of which is a crime, provides
procedures for the collection of certain fees and surcharges.
 
   This bill would impose an oil severance tax on and after October
1, 2009, upon any producer for the privilege of severing oil from the
earth or water in this state for sale, transport, consumption,
storage, profit, or use, as provided, at the rate of 9.9% of the
gross value of each barrel of oil severed. The tax would be
administered by the Department of Conservation and would be collected
pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Fee Collection
Procedures Law. The bill would require the department to deposit all
tax revenues, penalties, and interest collected pursuant to these
provisions into the General Fund.  
   Because this bill would expand the scope of the Fee Collection
Procedures Law, the violation of which is a crime, it would impose a
state-mandated local program.  
   (5) The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse
local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.  
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.  
   (6) This bill would result in a change in state taxes for the
purpose of increasing state revenues within the meaning of Section 3
of Article XIII A of the California Constitution, and thus would
require for passage the approval of 2/3 of the membership of each
house of the Legislature.  
   (7) This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.

   Vote: 2/3. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

   SECTION 1.    Section 2933 of the   Penal
Code   is amended to read: 
   2933.  (a) It is the intent of the Legislature that persons
convicted of a crime and sentenced to the state prison under Section
1170 serve the entire sentence imposed by the court, except for a
reduction in the time served in the custody of the Secretary of the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation pursuant to this section
and Section 2933.05.
   (b) For every six months of continuous incarceration, a prisoner
shall be awarded credit reductions from his or her term of
confinement of six months. A lesser amount of credit based on this
ratio shall be awarded for any lesser period of continuous
incarceration. Credit should be awarded pursuant to regulations
adopted by the secretary. Prisoners who are denied the opportunity to
earn credits pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 2932 shall be
awarded no credit reduction pursuant to this section. Under no
circumstances shall any prisoner receive more than six months' credit
reduction for any six-month period under this section.
   (c) Credit is a privilege, not a right. Credit must be earned and
may be forfeited pursuant to the provisions of Section 2932. Except
as provided in subdivision (a) of Section 2932, every eligible
prisoner shall have a reasonable opportunity to participate.
   (d) Under regulations adopted by the Department of Corrections and
Rehabilitation, which shall require a period of not more than one
year free of disciplinary infractions, credit which has been
previously forfeited may be restored by the secretary. The
regulations shall provide for separate classifications of serious
disciplinary infractions as they relate to restoration of credits,
the time period required before forfeited credits or a portion
thereof may be restored, and the percentage of forfeited credits that
may be restored for these time periods. For credits forfeited as
specified in paragraph (1) of subdivision (a) of Section 2932, the
Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation may provide that up to
180 days of lost credit shall not be restored and up to 90 days of
credit shall not be restored for a forfeiture resulting from
conspiracy or attempts to commit one of those acts. No credits may be
restored if they were forfeited for a serious disciplinary
infraction in which the victim died or was permanently disabled. Upon
application of the prisoner and following completion of the required
time period free of disciplinary offenses, forfeited credits
eligible for restoration under the regulations for disciplinary
offenses other than serious disciplinary infractions punishable by a
credit loss of more than 90 days shall be restored unless, at a
hearing, it is found that the prisoner refused to accept or failed to
perform in a credit qualifying assignment, or extraordinary
circumstances are present that require that credits not be restored.
"Extraordinary circumstances" shall be defined in the regulations
adopted by the secretary. However, in any case in which credit was
forfeited for a serious disciplinary infraction punishable by a
credit loss of more than 90 days, restoration of credit shall be at
the discretion of the secretary.
   The prisoner may appeal the finding through the Department of
Corrections and Rehabilitation's review procedure, which shall
include a review by an individual independent of the institution who
has supervisorial authority over the institution. 
   (e) A prisoner sentenced to the state prison under Section 1170
shall receive one day of credit for every day served in a county
jail, city jail, industrial farm, or road camp after the date he or
she was sentenced to the state prison as specified in subdivision (f)
of Section 4019.  
   (e) (1) Notwithstanding Section 4019 and subject to the
limitations of this subdivision, a prisoner sentenced to the state
prison under Section 1170 for whom the sentence is executed shall
have one day deducted from his or her period of confinement for every
day he or she served in a county jail, city jail, industrial farm,
or road camp from the date of arrest until state prison credits
pursuant to this article are applicable to the prisoner.  
   (2) A prisoner may not receive the credit specified in paragraph
(1) if it appears by the record that the prisoner has refused to
satisfactorily perform labor as assigned by, or has not
satisfactorily complied with the reasonable rules and regulations
established by, the sheriff, chief of police, or superintendent of an
industrial farm or road camp.  
   (3) Section 4019, and not this subdivision, shall apply if the
prisoner is required to register as a sex offender, pursuant to
Chapter 5.5 (commencing with Section 290), was committed for a
serious felony, as defined in Section 1192.7, or has a prior
conviction for a serious felony, as defined in Section 1192.7, or a
violent felony, as defined in Section 667.5. 
   (f) The provisions of subdivision (d) shall also apply in cases of
credit forfeited under Section 2931 for offenses and serious
disciplinary infractions occurring on or after January 1, 1983.
   SEC. 2.    Section 4019 of the   Penal Code
  is amended to read: 
   4019.  (a) The provisions of this section shall apply in all of
the following cases:
   (1) When a prisoner is confined in or committed to a county jail,
industrial farm, or road camp, or any city jail, industrial farm, or
road camp, including all days of custody from the date of arrest to

judgment of imprisonment, or a fine and imprisonment until the fine
is paid in a criminal action or proceeding.

jail, industrial farm, or road camp or any city jail, industrial
farm, or road camp as a condition of probation after suspension of
imposition of a sentence or suspension of execution of sentence, in a
criminal action or proceeding.
   (3) When a prisoner is confined in or committed to the county
jail, industrial farm, or road camp or any city jail, industrial
farm, or road camp for a definite period of time for contempt

and regulations established by the sheriff, chief of police, or
superintendent of an industrial farm or road camp.

pursuant to Section 6 of Article XIII B of the California
Constitution because the only costs that may be incurred by a local
agency or school district will be incurred because this act creates a
new crime or infraction, eliminates a crime or infraction, or

taxable year beginning on or after January 1, 1994, and who operates
more than one business, and more than one of those businesses

if there is any remaining portion of the net operating loss after
application of clause (i) of subparagraph (B) of that paragraph,

deduction is denied by Section 17276.3, the carryover period
specified in this subdivision shall be extended as follows:
   (A) By one year for a net operating loss attributable to taxable
years beginning in 1991.

net operating loss carryover to each of the 10 taxable years
following the year of the loss if it is incurred by a taxpayer that
is under the jurisdiction of the court in a Title 11 or similar case
at any time during the income year. The loss carryover provided in

partnership or "S" corporation paragraphs (1) and (2) shall be
applied to the partnership or "S" corporation.
   (f) For purposes of this section, in determining whether a trade
or business activity qualifies as a new business under paragraph (2)
of subdivision (e), the following rules shall apply:
   (1) In any case where a taxpayer purchases or otherwise acquires
all or any portion of the assets of an existing trade or business
(irrespective of the form of entity) that is doing business in this
state (within the meaning of Section 23101), the trade or business
thereafter conducted by the taxpayer (or any related person) shall
not be treated as a new business if the aggregate fair market value
of the acquired assets (including real, personal, tangible, and
intangible property) used by the taxpayer (or any related person) in
the conduct of its trade or business exceeds 20 percent of the
aggregate fair market value of the total assets of the trade or
business being conducted by the taxpayer (or any related person). For
purposes of this paragraph only, the following rules shall apply:
   (A) The determination of the relative fair market values of the
acquired assets and the total assets shall be made as of the last day
of the first taxable year in which the taxpayer (or any related
person) first uses any of the acquired trade or business assets in
its business activity.
   (B) Any acquired assets that constituted property described in
Section 1221(1) of the Internal Revenue Code in the hands of the
transferor shall not be treated as assets acquired from an existing
trade or business, unless those assets also constitute property
described in Section 1221(1) of the Internal Revenue Code in the
hands of the acquiring taxpayer (or related person).
   (2) In any case where a taxpayer (or any related person) is
engaged in one or more trade or business activities in this state, or
has been engaged in one or more trade or business activities in this
state within the preceding 36 months ("prior trade or business
activity"), and thereafter commences an additional trade or business
activity in this state, the additional trade or business activity
shall only be treated as a new business if the additional trade or
business activity is classified under a different division of the
Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual published by the
United States Office of Management and Budget, 1987 edition, than are
any of the taxpayer's (or any related person's) current or prior
trade or business activities.
   (3) In any case where a taxpayer, including all related persons,
is engaged in trade or business activities wholly outside of this
state and the taxpayer first commences doing business in this state
(within the meaning of Section 23101) after December 31, 1993 (other
than by purchase or other acquisition described in paragraph (1)),
the trade or business activity shall be treated as a new business
under paragraph (2) of subdivision (e).
   (4) In any case where the legal form under which a trade or
business activity is being conducted is changed, the change in form
shall be disregarded and the determination of whether the trade or
business activity is a new business shall be made by treating the
taxpayer as having purchased or otherwise acquired all or any portion
of the assets of an existing trade or business under the rules of
paragraph (1) of this subdivision.
   (5) "Related person" shall mean any person that is related to the
taxpayer under either Section 267 or 318 of the Internal Revenue
Code.
   (6) "Acquire" shall include any gift, inheritance, transfer
incident to divorce, or any other transfer, whether or not for
consideration.
   (7) (A) For taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 1997,
the term "new business" shall include any taxpayer that is engaged in
biopharmaceutical activities or other biotechnology activities that
are described in Codes 2833 to 2836, inclusive, of the Standard
Industrial Classification (SIC) Manual published by the United States

   (4) (A) A tobacco product manufacturer may not include a brand

certifications, except as specified below.
   (1) The Attorney General may not include or retain in the
directory the name or brand families of any nonparticipating
manufacturer that fails to provide the required certification or
whose certification the Attorney General determines is not in
compliance with subdivision (b), unless the Attorney General has
determined that the violation has been cured to the satisfaction of
the Attorney General.
   (2) Neither a tobacco product manufacturer nor brand family shall
be included or retained in the directory if the Attorney General
concludes that either of the following is true:
   (A) In the case of a nonparticipating manufacturer, any escrow
deposit required pursuant to Section 104557 of the Health and Safety
Code for any period for any brand family, whether or not listed by
the nonparticipating manufacturer, has not been fully deposited into
a qualified escrow fund governed by a qualified escrow agreement that
has been approved by the Attorney General.
   (B) Any outstanding final judgment, including interest thereon,
for violations of Article 3 (commencing with Section 104555) of
Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health and Safety Code,
this section, and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, has
not been fully satisfied for the brand family and the manufacturer.
   (3) The Attorney General shall update the directory as necessary
in order to correct mistakes and to add or remove a tobacco product
manufacturer or brand family to keep the directory in conformity with
the requirements of this section. The Attorney General shall
promptly provide distributors with written notice of each tobacco
product manufacturer and brand family that the Attorney General has
added to, or excluded or removed from the list.
   (4) Every distributor shall provide to the Attorney General and
update, as necessary, an electronic mail address for the purpose of
receiving any notifications as may be required by this section.

  (5) The Attorney General shall provide each tobacco product
manufacturer that has provided all certifications and other
information required by this section with a written acknowledgment of
receipt within seven business days after receiving the
certifications and other materials. Each tobacco product manufacturer
shall provide to each distributor to whom it sells or ships
cigarettes, or any tobacco product defined as a cigarette under this
section, a copy of each acknowledgment of receipt provided to the
manufacturer by the Attorney General. Upon request, the Attorney
General shall provide any distributor with a copy of the most recent
written acknowledgment of receipt provided to the tobacco product
manufacturer.
   (d) (1) The Attorney General may exclude or remove from the list
required by subdivision (c) a tobacco product manufacturer or any of
its brand families, based on a determination that the manufacturer is
not a participating manufacturer and has not made all escrow
payments required by paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section
104557 of the Health and Safety Code, in accordance with that
subdivision, or has not complied with this section. Before the
exclusion or removal may take effect, the Attorney General shall
notify the manufacturer of this determination.
   (2) Upon receiving notice from the Attorney General pursuant to
paragraph (1), the manufacturer may challenge the Attorney General's
determination as erroneous, and may seek relief from the
determination, by filing a petition for writ of mandate pursuant to
Section 1085 of the Code of Civil Procedure for that purpose in the
Superior Court for the County of Sacramento, or as otherwise provided
by law. The filing of the petition shall operate to stay the
Attorney General's determination, if the manufacturer has paid into
escrow the full amount of any deficiency in the escrow payments that
the Attorney General has determined the tobacco product manufacturer
was required to have made under paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of
Section 104557 of the Health and Safety Code, including any
installment payments required under subdivision (h), pending final
resolution of the action.
   (e) (1) No person shall affix, or cause to be affixed, any tax
stamp or meter impression to a package of cigarettes pursuant to
subdivision (a) of Section 30163, or pay the tax levied pursuant to
this part on a tobacco product defined as a cigarette under this
section, unless the brand family of the cigarettes or tobacco
product, and the tobacco product manufacturer that makes or sells the
cigarettes or tobacco product, are included on the list posted by
the Attorney General pursuant to subdivision (c).
   (2) No person shall sell, offer, or possess for sale in this
state, or import for personal consumption in this state, cigarettes
of a tobacco product manufacturer or brand family not included in the
directory.
   (3) No person shall do either of the following:
   (A) Sell or distribute cigarettes that the person knows or should
know are intended to be distributed in violation of paragraphs (1)
and (2).
   (B) Acquire, hold, own, possess, transport, import, or cause to be
imported cigarettes that the person knows or should know are
intended to be distributed in violation of paragraphs (1) and (2).
   (f) (1) Any nonresident or foreign nonparticipating manufacturer
that has not registered to do business in the state as a foreign
corporation or business entity shall, as a condition precedent to
having its brand families listed or retained in the directory,
appoint and continually engage without interruption the services of
an agent in this state to act as agent for the service of process on
whom all process, and any action or proceeding against it concerning
or arising out of the enforcement of this section, Article 3
(commencing with Section 104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division
103 of the Health and Safety Code, and any regulations promulgated
pursuant thereto, may be served in any manner authorized by law. This
service shall constitute legal and valid service of process on the
nonparticipating manufacturer. The nonparticipating manufacturer
shall provide the name, address, telephone number, and proof of the
appointment and availability of the agent to the satisfaction of the
Attorney General.
   (2) The nonparticipating manufacturer shall provide notice to the
Attorney General 30 calendar days prior to termination of the
authority of an agent and shall further provide proof to the
satisfaction of the Attorney General of the appointment of a new
agent no less than five calendar days prior to the termination of an
existing agent appointment. In the event an agent terminates an
agency appointment, the nonparticipating manufacturer shall notify
the Attorney General of said termination within five calendar days
and shall include proof to the satisfaction of the Attorney General
of the appointment of a new agent.
   (3) Any nonparticipating manufacturer whose products are sold in
this state without appointing or designating an agent as herein
required shall be deemed to have appointed the Secretary of State as
its agent, as provided in Section 2105 of the Corporations Code, and
may be proceeded against in courts of this state by service of
process upon the Secretary of State. However, the appointment of the
Secretary of State pursuant to this provision as the agent for
service of process does not satisfy the condition precedent specified
in paragraph (1) to having its brand families listed or retained in
the directory.
   (g) (1) Not later than 25 days after the end of each calendar
quarter, and more frequently if so directed by the board or the
Attorney General, each distributor shall submit any information as
the board or Attorney General requires to facilitate compliance with
this section, including, but not limited to, a list by brand family
of the total number of cigarettes or in the case of roll your own,
the total ounces for which the distributor affixed stamps during the
previous calendar month or otherwise paid the tax due for those
cigarettes. The distributor shall maintain, and shall make available
to the board and the Attorney General, all invoices and documentation
of sales of all nonparticipating manufacturer cigarettes and any
other information relied upon in reporting to the board and the
Attorney General for a period of five years.
   (2) Notwithstanding Section 30455, the board is authorized to
disclose to the Attorney General any information received under this
part for purposes of determining compliance with and enforcing the
provisions of this section and Article 3 (commencing with Section
104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health and
Safety Code, and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto. The
board and Attorney General shall share with each other the
information received under this section, and may share that
information with other federal, state, or local agencies, only for
purposes of enforcement of this section, Article 3 (commencing with
Section 104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health
and Safety Code, and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, or
corresponding laws of other states.
   (3) At any time, the Attorney General may require from the
nonparticipating manufacturer proof from the financial institution in
which the manufacturer has established a qualified escrow fund for
the purpose of compliance with Article 3 (commencing with Section
104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health and
Safety Code, and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, of the
amount of money in the fund being held on behalf of the state and
the dates of deposits, and listing the amounts of all withdrawals
from the fund and the dates thereof.
   (4) In addition to the information required to be submitted
pursuant to this section or Article 3 (commencing with Section
104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health and
Safety Code and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto, the
board or the Attorney General may require a retailer, wholesaler,
distributor, or tobacco product manufacturer to submit any additional
information, including, but not limited to, samples of the packaging
or labeling of each brand family, as is necessary to enable the
Attorney General to determine whether a tobacco product manufacturer
is in compliance with this section, or Article 3 (commencing with
Section 104555) of Chapter 1 of Part 3 of Division 103 of the Health
and Safety Code, and any regulations promulgated pursuant thereto.
   (h) To promote compliance with this section, the Attorney General
may promulgate regulations requiring a tobacco product manufacturer
subject to the requirements of paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of
Section 104557 to make the escrow deposits required in quarterly or
other specified installments during the year in which the sales
covered by the deposits are made. The Attorney General may require
production of information sufficient to enable the Attorney General
to determine the adequacy of the amount of the installment deposit.
   (i) (1) In addition to any other civil or criminal penalty
provided by law, upon a finding that a distributor has violated
subdivision (e), or paragraph (1) of subdivision (g), the board may
take the following actions:
   (A) In the case of the first offense, the board may revoke or
suspend the license or licenses of the distributor pursuant to the
procedures applicable to the revocation of a license set forth in
Section 30148.
   (B) In the case of a second or any subsequent offense, in addition
to the action authorized under subparagraph (A), the board may
impose a civil penalty in an amount not to exceed the greater of
either of the following:
   (i) Five times the retail value of the cigarettes or tobacco
products defined as cigarettes under this section.
   (ii) Five thousand dollars ($5,000).
   (2) A distributor in any action for a violation of subdivision (e)
shall have a defense provided that either of the following is true:
   (A) At the time of the violation, the cigarettes or tobacco
products claimed to be the subject of the alleged violation belonged
to a brand family that was included on the list required by
subdivision (c).
   (B) At the time of the violation, the distributor possessed a copy
of the Attorney General's most recent written acknowledgment of
receipt of the certifications and other information required as a
condition of including the brand family on the list required by
subdivision (c).
   (3) The defense described in subparagraph (B) of paragraph (2) is
not available to a distributor if, at the time of the violation, the
Attorney General had provided the distributor with written notice
that the brand family had been excluded or removed from the list
required by subdivision (c), or the distributor failed to provide the
Attorney General with a current address for the receipt of written
notice through electronic mail as required by paragraph (4) of
subdivision (c).
   (4) A violation of paragraph (3) of subdivision (e) shall
constitute a misdemeanor.
   (j) If a distributor affixes a stamp or meter impression to a
package of cigarettes under subdivision (a) of Section 30163, or pays
the tax levied under this part on a tobacco product defined as a
cigarette under this section, during the period between the date on
which the brand family of the cigarettes or tobacco product was
excluded or removed from the list required by subdivision (c) and the
date on which the distributor received notice of the exclusion or
removal under paragraph (4) of subdivision (c), then both of the
following shall apply:
   (1) The distributor shall be entitled to a credit for the tax paid
by the distributor with respect to the cigarette or tobacco product
to which the stamp or meter impression was affixed, or the tax paid
during that period. The distributor shall comply with regulations
prescribed by the board regarding refunds and credits that are
adopted pursuant to Section 30177.5. If the distributor has sold the
cigarette or tobacco product to a wholesaler or retailer, and has
received payment from the wholesaler or retailer, the distributor
shall provide the credit to the wholesaler or retailer.
   (2) The brand family may not be included on or restored to the
list until the tobacco product manufacturer has reimbursed the
distributor for the cost to the distributor of the cigarettes or
tobacco product to which the stamp or meter impression was affixed,
or the tax paid, during that period.
   (k) Any tobacco product manufacturer that falsely represents any
of the following to any person shall be guilty of a misdemeanor for
each false representation:
   (1) Any information required under subdivision (b).
   (2) That the tobacco product manufacturer is a participating
manufacturer.
   (3) That the tobacco product manufacturer or any other person has
made any or all escrow payments required by paragraph (2) of
subdivision (a) of Section 104557 of the Health and Safety Code, if
applicable to the manufacturer.
   (4) That it has complied with subdivision (b), or with paragraph
(1) of subdivision (g), if applicable to the manufacturer.
   (  l  ) A violation of subdivision (e) shall
constitute unfair competition under Section 17200 of the Business and
Professions Code.
   (m) No person shall be issued a distributor's license, pursuant to
Section 30140, unless that person has certified in writing that the
person will comply fully with this section. Any person who makes a
certification pursuant to this subdivision that asserts the truth of
any material matter that he or she knows to be false is guilty of a
misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment of up to one year in the
county jail, or a fine of not more than one thousand dollars
($1,000), or both the imprisonment and the fine.

tobacco product manufacturer described in subdivision (b) shall be
due 45 days after that effective date, and the directory described in
subdivision (c) shall be published or made available within 90 days
after that effective date.
   (o) The Attorney General may adopt rules and regulations to
implement this section. The rules and regulations may establish
procedures for including in the list described in subdivision (c)
tobacco product manufacturers that are not participating
manufacturers and were not required to make escrow payments under
paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 104557 of the Health and
Safety Code, for sales made during any preceding calendar year, and
brand families of those manufacturers. The rules and regulations may
also establish procedures for seizure and destruction of cigarettes
forfeited to the state pursuant to Section 30436 or Section 30449,
including, but not limited to, the state facilities that may be used
for the destruction of contraband cigarettes. Nothing in this section
shall affect the authority of local law enforcement and local
government officials to seize and destroy contraband under existing
state or local law. The regulations adopted to effect the purposes of
this section are emergency regulations in accordance with Chapter

      PART 21.  OIL SEVERANCE TAX LAW


   42001.  This part shall be known and may be cited as the Oil
Severance Tax Law.
   42002.  For purposes of this part, the following definitions shall
apply:
   (a) "Barrel of oil" means 42 United States gallons of 231 cubic
inches per gallon computed at a temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

   (b) "Department" means the Department of Conservation.
   (c) "Gross value" means the sale price at the mouth of the well in
the case of oil, including any bonus, premium, or other thing of
value paid for the oil. If there is no sale at the time of severance,
"gross value" means the sale price when the oil is sold, including
any bonus, premium, or other thing of value paid for the oil. If oil
is exchanged for something other than cash, or if the relation
between the buyer and the seller is such that the consideration paid,
if any, is not indicative of the true value or market price, then
the department shall determine the value of the oil subject to the
tax based on the cash price paid to producers for like quality oil in
the vicinity of the well.
   (d) "Oil" means petroleum, or other crude oil, condensate, casing
head gasoline, or other mineral oil that is mined, produced, or
withdrawn from below the surface of the soil or water in this state.
   (e) "Producer" means any person or entity that takes oil from the
earth or water in this state in any manner; any person that owns,
controls, manages, or leases any oil well in the earth or water of
this state; any person that produces or extracts in any manner any
oil by taking it from the earth or water in this state; any person
that acquires the severed oil from a person or agency exempt from
property taxation under the United States Constitution or other laws
of the United States or under the California Constitution or other
laws of the State of California; and any person that owns an
interest, including a royalty interest, in oil or its value, whether
the oil is produced by the person owning the interest or by another
on the person's behalf by lease, contract, or other arrangement.
   (f) "Production" means the total gross amount of oil produced,
including the gross amount attributable to a royalty or other
interest.
   (g) "Severed" or "severing" means the extraction or withdrawing
from below the surface of the earth or water of any oil, regardless
of whether the extraction or withdrawal shall be by natural flow,
mechanical flow, forced flow, pumping, or any other means employed to
get the oil from below the surface of the earth or water, and shall
include the extraction or withdrawal by any means whatsoever of oil
upon which the tax has not been paid, from any surface reservoir,
natural or artificial, or from a water surface.
   (h) "Stripper well" means a well that has been certified by the
department as an oil well incapable of producing an average of more
than 10 barrels of oil per day during the entire taxable month. Once
a well has been certified as a stripper well, that stripper well
shall remain certified as a stripper well until the well produces an
average of more than 10 barrels of oil per day during an entire
taxable month.
   42003.  On and after October 1, 2009, for the privilege of
severing oil from the earth or water in this state for sale,
transport, consumption, storage, profit, or use, a tax is hereby
imposed upon all producers at the rate of 9.9 percent of the gross
value of each barrel of oil severed. The tax shall be applied equally
to all portions of the gross value of each barrel of oil severed.
   42004.  Except as otherwise provided in this part, the tax shall
be upon the entire production in this state, regardless of the place
of sale or to whom sold or by whom used, or the fact that the
delivery may be made to points outside the state.
                                                             42005.
The tax imposed by this part shall be in addition to any ad valorem
taxes imposed by the state, or any of its political subdivisions, or
any local business license taxes that may be incurred as a privilege
of severing oil from the earth or water or doing business in that
locality. There shall be no exemption from payment of an ad valorem
tax related to equipment, material, or property by reason of the
payment of the gross severance tax pursuant to this part.
   42006.  Two or more producers that are corporations and are owned
or controlled directly or indirectly, as defined in Section 25105, by
the same interests shall be considered as a single producer for
purposes of application of the tax prescribed in this part.
   42007.  (a) There shall be exempted from the imposition of the oil
severance tax imposed pursuant to this part oil produced by a
stripper well in which the average value of oil as of January 1 of
the prior year is less than thirty dollars ($30) per barrel.
   (b) For oil produced in this state from a well that qualifies
under Section 3251 of the Public Resources Code or which has been
inactive for a period of at least the preceding five consecutive
years, the imposition of the oil severance tax shall be reduced to
zero for a period of 10 years.
   (c) There shall be exempted from the imposition of the oil
severance tax imposed pursuant to this part all oil owned or produced
by the state and any political subdivision's (including any local
public entity, as defined by Section 900.4 of the Government Code)

other pooling agreement.
   42008.  The tax imposed by this part is due and payable to the
department quarterly on or before the last day of the month next
succeeding each calendar quarter.
   42009.  (a) Any person that fails to pay any tax within the time
required shall pay, in addition to the amount of tax owed, interest
at the rate of 11/2 percent per month, or fraction thereof, from the
date on which the tax became due and payable until and including the
date of payment.
   (b) Every payment on a delinquent tax owed pursuant to this part
shall be applied as follows:
   (1) First, to any interest due on the tax.
   (2) Second, to any penalty imposed by this part.
   (3) Third, to the balance, if any, of the tax due.
   42010.  On or before the last day of the month following each
quarterly period of three months, a return for the preceding
quarterly period shall be filed with the department in the form as
the department may prescribe.
   42011.  The department shall deposit all tax revenues, penalties,
and interest collected pursuant to this part in the General Fund.
   42012.  The department may prescribe those forms and reporting
requirements as necessary to implement the tax, including, but not
limited to, information regarding the location of the well by county,
the gross amount of oil produced, the quantity sold and the selling
price, the prevailing market price of oil, and the amount of tax due.

   42013.  The department shall administer and collect the tax
imposed by this part pursuant to the Fee Collection Procedures Law
(Part 30 (commencing with Section 55001) of Division 2). For purposes
of this part, the references in the Fee Collection Procedures Law to
"fee" shall include the tax imposed by this part, to "feepayer"
shall include a person required to pay the oil severance tax, and to

2 of the Government Code, and for purposes of that chapter, including
Section 11349.6 of the Government Code, the adoption of these
regulations is an emergency and shall be considered by the Office of

with, but not be repealed by, the Office of Administrative Law, and
shall remain in effect until revised by the director.
   42015.  The provisions of this part are severable. If any

invalidity shall not affect other provisions or applications that can
be given effect without the invalid provision or application.
