	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 93, Committee on Budget. Economic development: taxation:
credits, deductions, exemptions, and net operating losses.
   (1) Existing law provides for the designation and oversight by the
Department of Housing and Community Development of various economic
development areas in the state, including enterprise zones,
manufacturing enhancement areas, targeted tax areas, and local agency
military base recovery areas, or LAMBRAs. Existing law allows
various incentives to businesses operating in these areas.
   This bill would repeal the provisions authorizing those
designations on January 1, 2014.
   (2) The Personal Income Tax Law and the Corporation Tax Law allow
various credits against the taxes imposed by those laws, including
hiring credits and sales and use tax credits for taxpayers within the
specified economic development areas, and a hiring credit for
taxpayers, other than those allowed a credit with respect to
operating in the specified economic development areas. Those laws,
for taxpayers engaged in business within specified economic
development areas, authorize specified net operating loss carryovers
and expense deductions in computing income subject to taxes. Those
laws also authorize an interest deduction for interest received in
payment of indebtedness of a person engaged in business in an
enterprise zone.
   This bill generally would make these provisions inoperative for
taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, and repeal these
provisions on either December 1, 2014, or December 1, 2019, as
provided. This bill would limit the application of sales and use tax
credits to sales and use tax paid for purchases before January 1,
2014, and limit the carryover of those credits to the 10 succeeding
years, limit the application of the hiring credits to employees hired
within a specified period before January 1, 2014, and limit the
carryovers for those credits to the 10 succeeding years. The bill
would limit the interest deduction to interest received before
January 1, 2014.
   This bill would also allow a credit against tax under both laws
for each taxable year beginning on or after January 1, 2014, and
before January 1, 2025, in an amount as provided in a written
agreement between the Governor's Office of Business and Economic
Development and the taxpayer, agreed upon by the California Competes
Tax Credit Committee as established by this bill, and based on
specified factors, including the number of jobs the taxpayer will
create or retain in the state and the amount of investment in the
state by the taxpayer. The bill would limit the aggregate amount of
credits allowed to taxpayers to a specified sum per fiscal year.
   This bill would, under both laws for taxable years beginning on or
after January 1, 2014, and before January 1, 2021, allow a credit
against tax for portions of the wages paid by a taxpayer engaged in a
trade or business within a designated census tract, as defined, or a
former enterprise zone to certain full-time employees who provide
services for that taxpayer in connection with that trade or business.
The bill would require the Population Research Unit in the
Department of Finance to identify designated census tracts in
accordance with certain criteria.
   (3) Existing sales and use tax laws impose taxes on retailers
measured by the gross receipts from the sale of tangible personal
property sold at retail in this state, or on the storage, use, or
other consumption in this state of tangible personal property
purchased from a retailer for storage, use, or other consumption in
this state, and provides various exemptions from those taxes.
   The bill would exempt from those taxes, on and after July 1, 2014,
and before January 1, 2019, or before July 1, 2021, the gross
receipts from the sale of, and the storage, use, or other consumption
of, qualified tangible personal property purchased by a qualified
person for use primarily in manufacturing, processing, refining,
fabricating, or recycling of property, as specified; qualified
tangible personal property purchased for use by a contractor for
specified purposes, as provided; and qualified tangible personal
property purchased for use by a qualified person to be used primarily
in research and development, as provided. The bill would require the
purchaser to furnish the retailer with an exemption certificate, as
specified.
   The Bradley-Burns Uniform Local Sales and Use Tax Law authorizes
counties and cities to impose local sales and use taxes in conformity
with the Sales and Use Tax Law, and existing law authorizes
districts, as specified, to impose transactions and use taxes in
conformity with the Transactions and Use Tax Law, which conforms to
the Sales and Use Tax Law. Exemptions from state sales and use taxes
are incorporated into these laws.
   This bill would specify that this exemption does not apply to
local sales and use taxes, transactions and use taxes, and specified
state taxes from which revenues are deposited into the Local Public
Safety Fund, the Education Protection Account, the Local Revenue
Fund, the Fiscal Recovery Fund, or the Local Revenue Fund 2011.
   (4) This bill would appropriate up to $600,000 for allocation to a
committee and departments, as specified, by the Director of Finance
in furtherance of the objectives of this bill, as provided.
   (5) This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately
as an urgency statute.
   Appropriation: yes.


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

  SECTION 1.  The Legislature finds and declares all of the
following:
   (a) California's economic development policy should be to create
good jobs with middle-class wages and benefits.
   (b) State assistance regarding employment should be focused upon
those individuals facing barriers to employment, and state tax policy
should encourage businesses to invest in California.
   (c) The state's largest economic development program, the
enterprise zone program, is in need of comprehensive reform. The
Public Policy Institute of California released a study in 2009
finding that enterprise zones have "no statistically significant
effect on either employment levels or employment growth rates."
Furthermore, the Legislative Analyst's Office has issued several
reports concluding that enterprise zones do not create jobs, finding
that the enterprise zone program is "expensive and not strongly
effective."
   (d) It is the intent of the Legislature to reform state tax
incentives for the hiring of individuals in enterprise zones to
refocus those tax incentives on creating new, good jobs within those
zones and within other areas of the state suffering from high rates
of unemployment and poverty.
   (e) It is the intent of the Legislature to exempt manufacturing
equipment from state sales and use taxes in order to make California
more competitive in attracting new businesses to the state, and to
bring California in line with the 48 other states that exempt
manufacturing equipment from sales and use tax.
   (f) It is the intent of the Legislature in appropriating funds
pursuant to this act to provide the California Competes Tax Credit
Committee, and the departments that are required to administer this
act, with an important tool to attract and retain high-value
employers. The program created by this act will allow businesses to
publicly apply for tax credits allowed on the basis of job creation
and retention standards. This program is intended to be a model of
transparency and accountability for the state's job creation efforts
in that performance measurements will ensure that the effective use
of taxpayer dollars is maximized.
  SEC. 2.  Section 7090 is added to the Government Code, to read:
   7090.  Chapter 12.8 (commencing with Section 7070) is repealed on
January 1, 2014.
  SEC. 3.  Section 7099.5 is added to the Government Code, to read:
   7099.5.  Chapter 12.93 (commencing with Section 7097) is repealed

   7119.  Chapter 12.97 (commencing with Section 7105) is repealed on
January 1, 2014.
  SEC. 5.  Section 13073.5 of the Government Code is amended to read:

   13073.5.  The Legislature finds and declares that: (1) population
size and distribution patterns in California exert a major influence
on the physical, social, and economic structure of the state and on
the quality of the environment generally; (2) sound and current data
and methods to estimate population trends are necessary to enable
state, regional, and local agencies to plan and function properly;
and (3) there is a critical need for a proper study of the
implications of present and future population trends in order that
state, regional, and local agencies might develop or reexamine
policies and actions based thereon.
   The Population Research Unit shall:
   (a) Develop basic demographic data and statistical compilations,
which may include a current population survey and a mid-decade
census.

   (c) Conduct local population estimates as required by law.
   (d) Validate all official census data and population statistics.
   (e) Analyze and prepare projections of enrollments in public
schools, colleges, and universities.
   (f) Analyze governmental records to establish characteristics of
migration and distribution.
   (g) Publish annual estimates of the population of the state and
its composition.
   (h) Prepare short- and long-range projections of population and
its composition.
   (i) Provide advisory services to state agencies and other levels
of government.
   (j) Evaluate and recommend data requirements for determining
population and population growth.
   (k) Analyze the demographic features of the causes and
consequences of patterns of natural increase or decrease, migration,
and population concentration within the state.
   (  l  ) Assess the need for population data required for
determining the allocation of federal, state, and other subvention
revenues.
   (m) Request and obtain from any department, division, commission,
or other agency of the state all assistance and information to enable
the unit to effectively carry out the provisions of this section.
   (n) Cooperate with the Office of Planning and Research with
respect to functions involving mutual areas of concern relating to
demography and state planning.
   (o) Enter into agreements to carry out the purposes of this
section, including the application for and acceptance of federal
funds or private foundation grants for demographic studies.
   (p) Act as primary state government liaison with the Census
Bureau, United States Department of Commerce, in the acquisition and
distribution of census data and related documentation to state
agencies.
   (q) Administer, with other agencies, a State Census Data Center
which will be responsible for acquiring decennial and other census
data from the Bureau of the Census, and for providing necessary
information to the Legislature and to the executive branch and for
seeking to ensure the availability of census information to local
governments. The unit and the Office of Planning and Research shall
be responsible for designating subcenters of the State Census Data
Center as needed. The unit will provide materials to subcenters of
the State Census Data Center, will coordinate the efforts of the
subcenters to avoid duplication and may consult in the design of
standard reports to be offered by the center and its subcenters.
    (r     ) Coordinate with the Office of
Planning and Research Environmental Data Center for the purposes of
ensuring consistency and compatibility of data products, improving
public access to data, ensuring the consistent interpretation of
data, and avoiding duplication of functions.
   (s) (1) Determine those census tracts that are to be designated
census tracts based on data from the five-year American Community
Survey (ACS). The census tracts that are within the highest quartile
for both civilian unemployment and poverty statistics, as determined
in paragraphs (2) and (3), shall be determined to be designated
census tracts as described in paragraph (7) of subdivision (b) of
Section 17053.73, and paragraph (7) of subdivision (b) of Section
23626 of the Revenue and Taxation Code.
   (2) To determine the census tracts that are within the highest
quartile of census tracts with the highest civilian unemployment, the

unemployment rate of each in ascending order, or from the lowest (0
percent) to the highest (100 percent) according to the following:
   (A) Census tracts without a civilian labor force shall be
excluded.
   (B) After ordering the census tracts by the civilian unemployment
rate of each, the census tracts shall be divided into four equal
groups or quartiles as follows:

percent to 100 percent, inclusive).
   (C) The last or highest quartile shall represent the top 25
percent of the census tracts with the highest civilian unemployment
rates.
   (3) To determine the census tracts that are within the quartile of
census tracts with the highest poverty, the census tracts shall be
sorted by the respective percentage of population below poverty of
each in ascending order, or from the lowest (0 percent) to the
highest (100 percent) according to the following:
   (A) Consistent with poverty statistics in the ACS, which adhere to
the standards specified by the federal Office of Management and
Budget in Statistical Policy Directive 14, the poverty thresholds as
specified by the United States Census Bureau shall be used to
determine those individuals below poverty.
   (B) To determine those individuals below poverty, different
thresholds, as specified by the United States Census Bureau, shall be
applied to families, people living alone, or people living with
nonrelatives (unrelated individuals).
   (C) If a family's total income is less than the dollar value of
the appropriate threshold, then that family and every individual in
it shall be considered to be below poverty.
   (D) If an unrelated individual's total income is less than the
appropriate threshold, then that individual shall be considered to be
below poverty.
   (E) Poverty status shall be determined for all people except
institutionalized people, people in military group quarters, people
in college dormitories, and unrelated individuals under 15 years of
age.
   (F) Census tracts that do not have a population for whom poverty
status is determined shall be excluded.
   (G) After ordering the census tracts by the respective percent
below poverty of each, the census tracts shall be divided into four
equal quartiles as follows:

census tracts (1 percent to less than 26 percent).
   (ii) The second quartile shall represent the second fourth (26
percent to less than 51 percent).
   (iii) The third quartile shall represent the third fourth (51
percent to less than 76 percent).
   (iv) The fourth quartile shall represent the fourth fourth (76
percent to 100 percent, inclusive).
   (H) The last or highest quartile shall represent the top 25
percent of the census tracts with the highest percentage of
population below poverty.
   (4) To determine the census tracts that are within the lowest
quartile of census tracts with the lowest civilian unemployment and
poverty, the census tracts shall be sorted by the respective civilian
unemployment and poverty rates of each in ascending order, or from
the lowest (0 percent) to the highest (100 percent) according to the
following:
   (A) Census tracts without a civilian labor force are to be
excluded.
   (B) After ordering the census tracts by the civilian unemployment
and poverty rates of each, the census tracts shall be divided into
four equal groups or quartiles as follows:
   (i) The first quartile shall represent the lowest fourth of the
census tracts (1 percent to less than 26 percent).
   (ii) The second quartile shall represent the second fourth (26
percent to less than 51 percent).
   (iii) The third quartile shall represent the third fourth (51
percent to less than 76 percent).
   (iv) The fourth quartile shall represent the fourth fourth (76
percent to 100 percent, inclusive).
   (C) The first or lowest quartile shall represent the bottom 25
percent of the census tracts with the lowest civilian unemployment

from the sale as exempt from the sales tax, and the purchase exceeds
the two-hundred-million-dollar ($200,000,000) limitation described
in subparagraph (A) of paragraph (1), or within one year from the
date of purchase, the purchaser removes that property from
California, converts that property for use in a manner not qualifying

for the exemption, the purchaser shall be liable for payment of sales
tax, with applicable interest, as if the purchaser were a retailer
making a retail sale of the tangible personal property at the time

   (f) This section shall apply to leases of qualified tangible
personal property classified as "continuing sales" and "continuing
purchases" in accordance with Sections 6006.1 and 6010.1. The
exemption established by this section shall apply to the rentals
payable pursuant to the lease, provided the lessee is a qualified
person and the tangible personal property is used in an activity

   (2) No later than each March 1 next following a calendar year for
which this section provides an exemption, the board shall provide to
the Joint Legislative Budget Committee a report of the total dollar
amount of exemptions taken under this section for the immediately
preceding calendar year. The report shall compare the total dollar
amount of exemptions taken under this section for that calendar year
with the department's estimate for that same calendar year. If that
total dollar amount taken is less than the estimate for that calendar
year, the report shall identify options for increasing exemptions
taken so as to meet estimated amounts.
   (h) This section is repealed on January 1, 2019.

   (f) Any qualified taxpayer who elects to be subject to this
section shall not be entitled to increase the basis of the qualified

carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over

   (5) In the event that a credit carryover is allowable under
subdivision (e) for any taxable year after the targeted tax area
designation has expired, has been revoked, is no longer binding, or
has become inoperative, the targeted tax area shall be deemed to
remain in existence for purposes of computing the limitation
specified in this subdivision.
   (h) The amendments made to this section by the act adding this
subdivision shall apply to taxable years beginning on or after
January 1, 1998.

for the taxable year, as provided in subdivision (i).
   (5) In the event that a credit carryover is allowable under
subdivision (i) for any taxable year after the targeted tax area
expiration date, the targeted tax area shall be deemed to remain in
existence for purposes of computing the limitation specified in this
subdivision.
   (k) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), this section shall
cease to be operative for taxable years beginning on or after January
1, 2014, and shall be repealed on December 1, 2019.

1, 1995, and before January 1, 2014, there shall be allowed as a
credit against the "net tax" (as defined by Section 17039) an amount
equal to the sales or use tax paid or incurred by the taxpayer in

2014, to the extent that the qualified property does not exceed a
value of one million dollars ($1,000,000).

subtracting the total number of full-time employees (defined as
                                      2,000 paid hours per employee
per year) the taxpayer employed in this state in the taxable year
prior to commencing business operations in the LAMBRA from the total
number of full-time employees the taxpayer employed in this state
during the second taxable year after commencing business operations
in the LAMBRA. For taxpayers who commence doing business in this
state with their LAMBRA business operation, the number of employees
for the taxable year prior to commencing business operations in the
LAMBRA shall be zero. If the taxpayer has a net increase in jobs in
the state, the credit shall be allowed only if one or more full-time
employees is employed within the LAMBRA.
   (B) The total number of employees employed in the LAMBRA shall
equal the sum of both of the following:
   (i) The total number of hours worked in the LAMBRA for the
taxpayer by employees (not to exceed 2,000 hours per employee) who
are paid an hourly wage divided by 2,000.

taxpayer by employees who are salaried employees divided by 12.
   (C) In the case of a taxpayer who first commences doing business
in the LAMBRA during the taxable year, for purposes of clauses (i)
and (ii), respectively, of subparagraph (B), the divisors "2,000" and

business in the LAMBRA and the denominator of which is 12.
   (3) "Qualified property" means property that is each of the
following:
   (A) Purchased by the taxpayer for exclusive use in a trade or

section exceeds the "net tax" for the taxable year, that portion of
the credit which exceeds the "net tax" may be carried over and added
to the credit, if any, in the succeeding 10 taxable years, if
necessary, until the credit is exhausted. The credit shall be applied
first to the earliest taxable years possible.
   (e) Any taxpayer who elects to be subject to this section shall
not be entitled to increase the basis of the property as otherwise
required by Section 164(a) of the Internal Revenue Code with respect
to sales or use tax paid or incurred in connection with the purchase
of qualified property.
   (f) (1) The amount of credit otherwise allowed under this section
and Section 17053.46, including any credit carryover from prior
years, that may reduce the "net tax" for the taxable year shall not
exceed the amount of tax that would be imposed on the taxpayer's
business income attributed to a LAMBRA determined as if that
attributable income represented all the income of the taxpayer
subject to tax under this part.
   (2) Attributable income is that portion of the taxpayer's
California source business income that is apportioned to the LAMBRA.
For that purpose, the taxpayer's business income that is attributable
to sources in this state shall first be determined in accordance
with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 25101) of Part 11. That
business income shall be further apportioned to the LAMBRA in
accordance with Article 2 (commencing with Section 25120) of Chapter
17 of Part 11, as modified for purposes of this section in accordance
with paragraph (3).
   (3) Income shall be apportioned to a LAMBRA by multiplying the
total California business income of the taxpayer by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the property factor, plus the payroll factor,
and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of this paragraph:
   (A) The property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal
property owned or rented and used in the LAMBRA during the taxable
year, and the denominator of which is the average value of all the
taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and
used in this state during the taxable year.
   (B) The payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the LAMBRA during the
taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is the
total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (4) The portion of any credit remaining, if any, after application
of this subdivision, shall be carried over to succeeding taxable
years, if necessary, until the credit is exhausted, as if it were an
amount exceeding the "net tax" for the taxable year, as provided in
subdivision (d). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over
only to the succeeding 10 taxable years, if necessary, until the
credit is exhausted, as if it were an amount exceeding the "net tax"
for the taxable year, as provided in subdivision (d).
   (g) (1) If the qualified property is disposed of or no longer used
by the taxpayer in the LAMBRA, at any time before the close of the
second taxable year after the property is placed in service, the
amount of the credit previously claimed, with respect to that
property, shall be added to the taxpayer's tax liability in the
taxable year of that disposition or nonuse.
   (2) At the close of the second taxable year, if the taxpayer has
not increased the number of its employees as determined by paragraph
(2) of subdivision (b), then the amount of the credit previously
claimed shall be added to the taxpayer's net tax for the taxpayer's
second taxable year.
   (h) If the taxpayer is allowed a credit for qualified property
pursuant to this section, only one credit shall be allowed to the
taxpayer under this part with respect to that qualified property.
   (i) The amendments made to this section by the act adding this
subdivision shall apply to taxable years beginning on or after
January 1, 1998.
   (j) This section is repealed on December 1, 2014.

principles similar to the principles that apply in the case of
controlled groups of corporations as specified in subdivision (e) of

in Sections 1256-30 to 1256-43, inclusive, of Title 22 of the
California Code of Regulations) of that individual.
   (iv) A termination of employment of an individual due to a
substantial reduction in the trade or business operations of the

California Code of Regulations) of that qualified disadvantaged
individual.
   (iv) A failure to continue seasonal employment of a qualified
disadvantaged individual due to a substantial reduction in the
regular seasonal trade or business operations of the qualified
taxpayer.
   (v) A failure to continue the seasonal employment of a qualified
disadvantaged individual, if that individual is replaced by other
qualified displaced employees so as to create a net increase in both
the number of seasonal employees and the hours of seasonal
employment.
   (C) For purposes of paragraph (1), the employment relationship
between the taxpayer and an employee shall not be treated as
terminated by reason of a mere change in the form of conducting the
trade or business of the taxpayer, if the employee continues to be
employed in that trade or business and the taxpayer retains a
substantial interest in that trade or business.
   (3) Any increase in tax under paragraph (1) shall not be treated

any credit allowable under this part.
   (4) At the close of the second taxable year, if the taxpayer has
not increased the number of its employees as determined by paragraph

the wages or salaries paid or incurred by the taxpayer upon which the
credit is based shall be reduced by the amount of the credit, prior
to any reduction required by subdivision (h) or (i).
   (h) In the case where the credit otherwise allowed under this
section exceeds the "net tax" for the taxable year, that portion of
the credit that exceeds the "net tax" may be carried over and added
to the credit, if any, in the succeeding 10 taxable years, if
necessary, until the credit is exhausted. The credit shall be applied
first to the earliest taxable years possible.
   (i) (1) The amount of credit otherwise allowed under this section
and Section 17053.45, including prior year credit carryovers, that

amount of tax that would be imposed on the taxpayer's business income
attributed to a LAMBRA determined as if that attributed income
represented all of the net income of the taxpayer subject to tax
under this part.
   (2) Attributable income shall be that portion of the taxpayer's
California source business income that is apportioned to the LAMBRA.
For that purpose, the taxpayer's business income that is attributable
to sources in this state first shall be determined in accordance
with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 25101) of Part 11. That

and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of this paragraph:
   (A) The property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal
property owned or rented and used in the LAMBRA during the taxable
year, and the denominator of which is the average value of all the
taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and
used in this state during the taxable year.

total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (4) The portion of any credit remaining, if any, after application
of this subdivision, shall be carried over to succeeding taxable
years, if necessary, until the credit is exhausted, as if it were an
amount exceeding the "net tax" for the taxable year, as provided in
subdivision (h). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this
              subdivision, shall be carried over only to the
succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, until the credit is
exhausted, as if it were an amount exceeding the "net tax" for the
taxable year, as provided in subdivision (h).
   (j) If the taxpayer is allowed a credit pursuant to this section
for qualified wages paid or incurred, only one credit shall be
allowed to the taxpayer under this part with respect to any wage
consisting in whole or in part of those qualified wages.
   (k) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), this section shall
cease to be operative for taxable years beginning on or after January

qualified employees shall continue to qualify for the credit under
this section for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014,

subdivision (g). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over

allowed to the taxpayer under this part with respect to any wage
consisting in whole or in part of those qualified wages.
   (j) The qualified taxpayer shall do both of the following:
   (1) Obtain from the Employment Development Department, as

Partnership Act administrative entity, the local county GAIN office
or social services agency, or the local government administering the

qualified disadvantaged individual meets the eligibility requirements
specified in paragraph (5) of subdivision (b). The Employment
Development Department may provide preliminary screening and referral
to a certifying agency. The Department of Housing and Community
Development shall develop regulations governing the issuance of
certificates pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 7086 of the
Government Code and shall develop forms for this purpose.
   (2) Retain a copy of the certification and provide it upon request
to the Franchise Tax Board.

the credit under this section for taxable years beginning on or after

within a LAMBRA and, for the first two taxable years, has a net
increase in jobs (defined as 2,000 paid hours per employee per year)

subtracting the total number of full-time employees (defined as 2,000
paid hours per employee per year) the taxpayer employed in this
state in the taxable year prior to commencing business operations in
the LAMBRA from the total number of full-time employees the taxpayer
employed in this state during the second taxable year after
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA. For taxpayers who
commence doing business in this state with their LAMBRA business
operation, the number of employees for the taxable year prior to
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA shall be zero. If the
taxpayer has a net increase in jobs in the state, the credit shall be
allowed only if one or more full-time employees is employed within
the LAMBRA.

"12" shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
number of months of the taxable year that the taxpayer was doing
business in the LAMBRA and the denominator of which is 12.

taken into account under subdivision (a) for any taxable year shall
not exceed the following applicable amounts for the taxable year of
the designation of the relevant LAMBRA and taxable years thereafter:
                                   The applicable
                                     amount is:

25120) of Chapter 17 of Part 11, modified for purposes of this
subdivision as follows:
   (i) Business income shall be apportioned to the enterprise zone by

the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the enterprise zone during
the taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is
the total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (ii) If a loss carryover is allowable pursuant to this section for

the enterprise zone shall be deemed to remain in existence for
purposes of computing the limitation set forth in subparagraph (B)
and allowing a net operating loss deduction.
   (D) "Enterprise zone expiration date" means the date the
enterprise zone designation expires, is no longer binding, or becomes
inoperative.

   (b) A taxpayer who qualifies as a "qualified taxpayer" under one
or more sections shall, for the taxable year of the net operating
loss and any taxable year to which that net operating loss may be
carried, designate on the original return filed for each year the
section which applies to that taxpayer with respect to that net
operating loss. If the taxpayer is eligible to qualify under more
than one section, the designation is to be made after taking into
account subdivision (c).
   (c) If a taxpayer is eligible to qualify under this section and

paid hours per employee per year) the taxpayer employed in this
state in the taxable year prior to commencing business operations in
the LAMBRA from the total number of full-time employees the taxpayer
employed in this state during the second taxable year after

accordance with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 25101). That
business income shall be further apportioned to the targeted tax area
in accordance with Article 2 (commencing with Section 25120) of
Chapter 17, modified for purposes of this section in accordance with
paragraph (3).
   (3) Business income shall be apportioned to the targeted tax area
by multiplying the total California business income of the taxpayer
by a fraction, the numerator of which is the property factor plus the
payroll factor, and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of
this paragraph:
   (A) The property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal
property owned or rented and used in the targeted tax area during the
taxable year, and the denominator of which is the average value of
all the taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or
rented and used in this state during the taxable year.
   (B) The payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the targeted tax area during
the taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is
the total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (4) The portion of any credit remaining, if any, after application
of this subdivision, shall be carried over to succeeding taxable
years, if necessary, until the credit is exhausted, as if it were an
amount exceeding the "tax" for the taxable year, as provided in
subdivision (i). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over
only to the succeeding 10 taxable years if necessary, until the
credit is exhausted, as if it were an amount exceeding the "tax" for
the taxable year, as provided in subdivision (i).
   (5) In the event that a credit carryover is allowable under
subdivision (h) for any taxable year after the targeted tax area
designation has expired or been revoked, the targeted tax area shall
be deemed to remain in existence for purposes of computing the
limitation specified in this subdivision.
   (k) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), this section shall
cease to be operative for taxable years beginning on or after January
1, 2014, and shall be repealed on December 1, 2019.
   (2) The section shall continue to apply with respect to qualified
employees who are employed by the qualified taxpayer within the
targeted tax area within the 60-month period immediately preceding
January 1, 2014, and qualified wages paid or incurred with respect to
those qualified employees shall continue to qualify for the credit
under this section for taxable years beginning on or after January 1,
2014, in accordance with this section, as amended by the act adding
this subdivision.
  SEC. 36.  Section 23645 of the Revenue and Taxation Code is amended
to read:
   23645.  (a) For each taxable year beginning on or after January 1,
1995, and before January 1, 2014, there shall be allowed as a credit
against the "tax" (as defined by Section 23036) for the taxable year
an amount equal to the sales or use tax paid or incurred by the
taxpayer in connection with the purchase of qualified property before
January 1, 2014, to the extent that the qualified property does not
exceed a value of twenty million dollars ($20,000,000).
   (b) For purposes of this section:
   (1) "LAMBRA" means a local agency military base recovery area
designated in accordance with Section 7114 of the Government Code.
   (2) "Taxpayer" means a corporation that conducts a trade or
business within a LAMBRA and, for the first two taxable years, has a
net increase in jobs (defined as 2,000 paid hours per employee per
year) of one or more employees in the LAMBRA.
   (A) The net increase in the number of jobs shall be determined by
subtracting the total number of full-time employees (defined as 2,000
paid hours per employee per year) the taxpayer employed in this
state in the taxable year prior to commencing business operations in
the LAMBRA from the total number of full-time employees the taxpayer
employed in this state during the second taxable year after
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA. For taxpayers who
commence doing business in this state with their LAMBRA business
operation, the number of employees for the taxable year prior to
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA shall be zero. If the
taxpayer has a net increase in jobs in the state, the credit shall be
allowed only if one or more full-time employees is employed within
the LAMBRA.
   (B) The total number of employees employed in the LAMBRA shall
equal the sum of both of the following:
   (i) The total number of hours worked in the LAMBRA for the
taxpayer by employees (not to exceed 2,000 hours per employee) who
are paid an hourly wage divided by 2,000.
   (ii) The total number of months worked in the LAMBRA for the
taxpayer by employees that are salaried employees divided by 12.
   (C) In the case of a taxpayer who first commences doing business
in the LAMBRA during the taxable year, for purposes of clauses (i)
and (ii), respectively, of subparagraph (B) the divisors "2,000" and
"12" shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
number of months of the taxable year that the taxpayer was doing
business in the LAMBRA and the denominator of which is 12.
   (3) "Qualified property" means property that is each of the
following:
   (A) Purchased by the taxpayer for exclusive use in a trade or
business conducted within a LAMBRA.
   (B) Purchased before the date the LAMBRA designation expires, is
no longer binding, or becomes inoperative.
   (C) Any of the following:
   (i) High technology equipment, including, but not limited to,
computers and electronic processing equipment.
   (ii) Aircraft maintenance equipment, including, but not limited
to, engine stands, hydraulic mules, power carts, test equipment,
handtools, aircraft start carts, and tugs.
   (iii) Aircraft components, including, but not limited to, engines,
fuel control units, hydraulic pumps, avionics, starts, wheels, and
tires.
   (iv) Section 1245 property, as defined in Section 1245(a)(3) of
the Internal Revenue Code.
   (c) The credit provided under subdivision (a) shall only be
allowed for qualified property manufactured in California unless
qualified property of a comparable quality and price is not available
for timely purchase and delivery from a California manufacturer.
   (d) In the case where the credit otherwise allowed under this
section exceeds the "tax" for the taxable year, that portion of the
credit which exceeds the "tax" may be carried over and added to the
credit, if any, in the succeeding 10 taxable years, if necessary,
until the credit is exhausted. The credit shall be applied first to
the earliest taxable years possible.
   (e) Any taxpayer who elects to be subject to this section shall
not be entitled to increase the basis of the property as otherwise
required by Section 164(a) of the Internal Revenue Code with respect
to sales or use tax paid or incurred in connection with the purchase
of qualified property.
   (f) (1) The amount of the credit otherwise allowed under this
section and Section 23646, including any credit carryovers from prior
years, that may reduce the "tax" for the taxable year shall not
exceed the amount of tax that would be imposed on the taxpayer's
business income attributed to a LAMBRA determined as if that
attributable income represented all the income of the taxpayer
subject to tax under this part.
   (2) Attributable income shall be that portion of the taxpayer's
California source business income that is apportioned to the LAMBRA.
For that purpose, the taxpayer's business income that is attributable
to sources in this state shall first be determined in accordance
with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 25101). That business income
shall be further apportioned to the LAMBRA in accordance with
Article 2 (commencing with Section 25120) of Chapter 17, modified for
purposes of this section in accordance with paragraph (3).
   (3) Income shall be apportioned to a LAMBRA by multiplying the
total California business income of the taxpayer by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the property factor, plus the payroll factor,
and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of this paragraph:
   (A) The property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal
property owned or rented and used in the LAMBRA during the taxable
year, and the denominator of which is the average value of all the
taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and
used in this state during the taxable year.
   (B) The payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the LAMBRA during the
taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is the
total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (4) The portion of any credit remaining, if any, after application
of this subdivision, shall be carried over to succeeding taxable
years, if necessary, until the credit is exhausted, as if it were an
amount exceeding the "tax" for the taxable year, as provided in
subdivision (d). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over
only to the succeeding 10 taxable years, if necessary, until the
credit is exhausted, as if it were an amount exceeding the "tax" for
the taxable year, as provided in subdivision (d).
   (g) (1) If the qualified property is disposed of or no longer used
by the taxpayer in the LAMBRA, at any time before the close of the
second taxable year after the property is placed in service, the
amount of the credit previously claimed, with respect to that
property, shall be added to the taxpayer's tax liability in the
taxable year of that disposition or nonuse.
   (2) At the close of the second taxable year, if the taxpayer has
not increased the number of its employees as determined by paragraph
(2) of subdivision (b), then the amount of the credit previously
claimed shall be added to the taxpayer's tax for the taxpayer's
second taxable year.
   (h) If the taxpayer is allowed a credit for qualified property
pursuant to this section, only one credit shall be allowed to the
taxpayer under this part with respect to that qualified property.
   (i) The amendments made to this section by the act adding this
subdivision shall apply to taxable years beginning on or after
January 1, 1998.
   (j) This section is repealed on December 1, 2014.

qualified wages in the third year of employment.
   (4) Twenty percent of the qualified wages in the fourth year of

   (1) "Qualified wages" means:
   (A) That portion of wages paid or incurred by the employer during
the taxable year to qualified disadvantaged individuals or qualified
displaced employees that does not exceed 150 percent of the minimum
wage.
   (B) The total amount of qualified wages which may be taken into
account for purposes of claiming the credit allowed under this
section shall not exceed two million dollars ($2,000,000) per taxable

   (C) Wages received during the 60-month period beginning with the
first day the individual commences employment with the taxpayer.
Reemployment in connection with any increase, including a regularly
occurring seasonal increase, in the trade or business operation of
the qualified taxpayer does not constitute commencement of employment
for purposes of this section.
   (D) Qualified wages do not include any wages paid or incurred by
the qualified taxpayer on or after the LAMBRA expiration date.
However, wages paid or incurred with respect to qualified
disadvantaged individuals or qualified displaced employees who are

commences seasonal employment with the qualified taxpayer, the tax
imposed by this part, for the taxable year that includes the 60th
month following the month in which the qualified disadvantaged
individual commences seasonal employment with the qualified taxpayer,
shall be increased by an amount equal to the credit allowed under
subdivision (a) for that taxable year and all prior taxable years

qualified taxpayer fails to offer seasonal employment to that
qualified disadvantaged individual.
   (iii) A failure to continue the seasonal employment of a qualified
disadvantaged individual, if it is determined that the failure to
continue the seasonal employment was due to the misconduct (as
defined in Sections 1256-30 to 1256-43, inclusive, of Title 22 of the

until the credit is exhausted. The credit shall be applied first to
the earliest taxable years possible.
   (i) (1) The amount of credit otherwise allowed under this section
and Section 23645, including any prior year carryovers, that may
reduce the "tax" for the taxable year shall not exceed the amount of
tax that would be imposed on the taxpayer's business income
attributed to a LAMBRA determined as if that attributed income
represented all of the income of the taxpayer subject to tax under
this part.
   (2) Attributable income shall be that portion of the taxpayer's
California source business income that is apportioned to the LAMBRA.
For that purpose, the taxpayer's business income that is attributable

   (3) Income shall be apportioned to a LAMBRA by multiplying the
total California business income of the taxpayer by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the property factor plus the payroll factor,
and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of this paragraph:
   (A) The property factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the average value of the taxpayer's real and tangible personal

year, and the denominator of which is the average value of all the
taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or rented and
used in this state during the taxable year.

of this subdivision, shall be carried over to succeeding taxable
years, if necessary, until the credit is exhausted, as if it were an
amount exceeding the "tax" for the taxable year, as provided in
subdivision (h). However, the portion of any credit remaining for
carryover to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2014, if
any, after application of this subdivision, shall be carried over
only to the succeeding 10 taxable years, if necessary, until the
credit is exhausted, as if it were an amount exceeding the "tax" for
the taxable year, as provided in subdivision (h).
   (j) If the taxpayer is allowed a credit pursuant to this section
for qualified wages paid or incurred, only one credit shall be
allowed to the taxpayer under this part with respect to any wage
consisting in whole or in part of those qualified wages.
   (k) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), this section shall
cease to be operative for taxable years beginning on or after January
1, 2014, and shall be repealed on December 1, 2019.
   (2) The section shall continue to apply with respect to qualified
employees who are employed by the qualified taxpayer within the
LAMBRA within the 60-month period immediately preceding January 1,
2014, and qualified wages paid or incurred with respect to those

carryback for any taxable year and a net operating loss for any
taxable year beginning on or after the date that the area in which

determined in accordance with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section
25101), modified for purposes of this subdivision as follows:

                                                  (i) Business income
shall be apportioned to the enterprise zone by multiplying the total
California business income of the taxpayer by a fraction, the
numerator of which is the property factor plus the payroll factor,
and the denominator of which is two. For purposes of this clause:

taxable year, and the denominator of which is the average value of
all the taxpayer's real and tangible personal property owned or
rented and used in this state during the taxable year.
   (II) The payroll factor is a fraction, the numerator of which is
the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the enterprise zone during
the taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is
the total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (ii) If a loss carryover is allowable pursuant to this section for
any taxable year after the enterprise zone designation has expired,
the enterprise zone shall be deemed to remain in existence for
purposes of computing the limitation set forth in subparagraph (B)
and allowing a net operating loss deduction.
   (D) "Enterprise zone expiration date" means the date the
enterprise zone designation expires, is no longer binding, or becomes
inoperative.
   (3) The changes made to this subdivision by the act adding this
paragraph shall apply to taxable years beginning on or after January

   (b) A taxpayer who qualifies as a "qualified taxpayer" under one
or more sections shall, for the taxable year of the net operating
loss and any taxable year to which that net operating loss may be

account subdivision (c).
   (c) If a taxpayer is eligible to qualify under this section and
either Section 24416.4, 24416.5, or 24416.6 as a "qualified taxpayer,"
with respect to a net operating loss in a taxable year, the taxpayer
shall designate which section is to apply to the taxpayer.
   (d) Notwithstanding Section 24416, the amount of the loss
determined under this section, or Section 24416.4, 24416.5, or
24416.6 shall be the only net operating loss allowed to be carried
over from that taxable year and the designation under subdivision (b)
shall be included in the election under Section 24416.1.

or business is designated a LAMBRA shall be a net operating loss
carryover to each following taxable year that ends before the LAMBRA
expiration date or to each of the 15 taxable years following the
taxable year of loss, if longer.
   (2) In the case of a financial institution to which Section 585,
586, or 593 of the Internal Revenue Code applies, a net operating

24416.1 shall not apply.
   (3) "LAMBRA" means a local agency military base recovery area
designated in accordance with Section 7114 of the Government Code.

state in the taxable year prior to commencing business operations in
the LAMBRA from the total number of full-time employees the taxpayer
employed in this state during the second taxable year after
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA. For taxpayers who
commence doing business in this state with their LAMBRA business
operation, the number of employees for the taxable year prior to
commencing business operations in the LAMBRA shall be zero. The
deduction shall be allowed only if the taxpayer has a net increase in
jobs in the state, and if one or more full-time employees are
employed within the LAMBRA.
   (B) The total number of employees employed in the LAMBRA shall
equal the sum of both of the following:
   (i) The total number of hours worked in the LAMBRA for the
taxpayer by employees (not to exceed 2,000 hours per employee) who
are paid an hourly wage divided by 2,000.
   (ii) The total number of months worked in the LAMBRA for the
taxpayer by employees who are salaried employees divided by 12.
   (C) In the case of a taxpayer that first commences doing business
in the LAMBRA during the taxable year, for purposes of clauses (i)
and (ii), respectively, of subparagraph (B) the divisors "2,000" and
"12" shall be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the
number of months of the taxable year that the taxpayer was doing
business in the LAMBRA and the denominator of which is 12.
   (5) "Net operating loss" means the loss determined under Section
172 of the Internal Revenue Code, as modified by Section 24416.1,
attributable to the taxpayer's business activities within a LAMBRA
prior to the LAMBRA expiration date. The attributable loss shall be
determined in accordance with Chapter 17 (commencing with Section
25101), modified for purposes of this section as follows:

loss from the business by a fraction, the numerator of which is the

respect to the taxpayer's business income attributable to a LAMBRA.
   (7) Attributable income is that portion of the taxpayer's
California source business income that is apportioned to the LAMBRA.
For that purpose, the taxpayer's business income attributable to
sources in this state first shall be determined in accordance with
Chapter 17 (commencing with Section 25101). That business income
shall be further apportioned to the LAMBRA in accordance with Article
2 (commencing with Section 25120) of Chapter 17, modified as

the total amount paid by the taxpayer in the LAMBRA during the
taxable year for compensation, and the denominator of which is the
total compensation paid by the taxpayer in this state during the
taxable year.
   (B) If a loss carryover is allowable pursuant to this section for
any taxable year after the LAMBRA designation has expired, the LAMBRA
shall be deemed to remain in existence for purposes of computing the
limitation specified in subparagraph (D) and allowing a net
operating loss deduction.
   (8) "LAMBRA expiration date" means the date the LAMBRA designation
expires, is no longer binding, or becomes inoperative pursuant to
