SB 954 - This act modifies every state tax credit program in existence, except for the senior citizen property tax credit, the homestead preservation tax credit, financial and insurance tax credits, the residential treatment agency tax credit, and the community college new job training and retention credits, by limiting the amount of tax credits available for authorization in each fiscal year beginning FY 2011 based upon an allocation made by enactment of the appropriation bill for public debt.
The act creates a procedure for the allocation of tax credit authorizations after June 30, 2011. Unless specifically allocated, no tax credits may be authorized after June 30, 2011. No later than October 1, 2010, the administering agency of each tax credit program, now or hereafter authorized by state law, must provide the House Budget Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee with a request for tax credit allocation. Where Missouri law allows the issuance of tax credits to a recipient over the course of several years, such tax credit authorization must be allocated in the aggregate, and subsequent issuance of such tax credits will not be used in calculating any statutory limitation on the fiscal year authorization allocation of tax credits. Fiscal year allocations of tax credits must be made in the annual appropriations bill for public debt and specifically provide: the name of the tax credit program; the actual amount allocated for authorization; the administering agency for the program; and whether the amount is authorized for streaming tax credit issuance and the amount of streamed credits. Allocations for tax credits which remain unauthorized at the end of the fiscal year will expire on the last day of such fiscal year.
The act repeals the transportation development tax credit, loan guarantee fee tax credit, dry fire hydrant tax credit, and the qualified research expense tax credit.
This act is similar to Senate Bill 728 (2010).
