Current Bill Summary

SB 98 - This act creates an income tax deduction for the amount of capital gains income incurred by the resident from the exchange of gold or silver issued by the federal government. Such gold and silver held in an nonbank depository will not subject to disclosure except under warrant. The value of gold and silver held by a nonbank depository will be based on the London PM fix for that day. The act also repeals provisions making silver coins of the United States legal tender and limiting the amount that a payment may be made with silver coins.

This act is identical to SB 713 (2014), HB 1174 (2014), and HB 421 (2013).
