   An act to amend Sections 6377.1, 17053.73, 17059.2, 23626, and
23689 of the Revenue and Taxation Code, as added by Assembly Bill 93

	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 90, Galgiani. Economic development: taxation: credits:
exemption.
   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.
   Existing law exempts from those taxes, on and after July 1, 2014,
and before January 1, 2019, 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, and until January 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 those purposes for use within a designated census tract or
a former enterprise zone. Existing law specifies 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.
   This bill would extend the application of the exemption from
January 1, 2019, to July 1, 2022, and eliminate the requirement that,
after January 1, 2019, the qualified tangible personal property
purchased by a qualified person for those purposes for use within a
designated census tract or a former enterprise zone.
   The Personal Income Tax Law and the Corporation Tax Law allow
various credits against the taxes imposed by those laws, including
hiring credits 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.
   This bill would, under both laws for taxable years beginning on or
after January 1, 2014, and before January 1, 2021, revise the
definitions of "qualified full-time employee," "qualified taxpayer,"
and "small business" for the credit against those taxes for portions
of the wages paid by a taxpayer, engaged in a trade or business
within a designated census tract, as defined, or an economic
development area, to certain full-time employees who provide services
for that taxpayer in connection with that trade or business. This
bill would additionally expand the definition of "qualified wages"
for qualified full-time employees within a designated pilot area, as
provided.
   Existing law also allows 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, 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. Existing law limits the
aggregate amount of credits allocated to taxpayers to a specified sum
per fiscal year.
   This bill would make specifications regarding the fiscal year
allocation under these provisions of credit amounts and the taxable
years for which the allocated amounts may be claimed as a credit
allowed to taxpayers.
   This bill would also restate the carryover period of certain tax
credits that were amended by AB 93 of the 2013-14 Regular Session and
the operation of existing law with respect to those carryover
credits.
   This bill would make the operation of its modifications and
revisions contingent on the enactment of AB 93 of the 2013-14 Regular
Session, as specified.
   This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as
an urgency statute.

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.
