   The Personal Income Tax Law imposes  specified taxes based

computation of taxes in accordance with tax tables prescribed by the
Franchise Tax Board   a tax upon taxable income at
various rates depending upon the amount of that income  .
   This bill  would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to
those provisions   would, for taxable years beginning
on or after January 1, 2011, increase the tax rate applicable to
taxable income over $500,000 to 10.3%  . 
   This bill would constitute a change in state statute that would
result in a taxpayer paying a higher tax 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.  
   This act provides for a tax levy within the meaning of Article IV
of the Constitution and shall go into immediate effect. 
   Vote:  majority   2/3  . Appropriation:

part-year resident" under paragraph (1), any carryover items,
deferred income, suspended losses, or suspended deductions shall only
be includable or allowable to the extent that the carryover item,
