HB 675-FN - FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT exempting agricultural tower silos from the education property tax.

FISCAL IMPACT:

      The Department of Revenue Administration indicates this bill will have an indeterminable impact on state restricted education trust fund expenditures and local expenditures and local revenue. There will be no fiscal impact on state and county revenue or county expenditures.

METHODOLOGY:

    The Department indicates this bill removes agricultural silos from taxation under RSA 76:3, the statewide property tax. Since the amount collected by the state is an amount set by statute, the amount collected will remain the same. However, this bill removes agricultural silos from the equalized valuation calculation, and since that measure is used in the computation of the state’s cost of an adequate education, and since the statewide property tax is calculated on a town by town basis, this bill will change the amount a town receives in grants and pays in statewide property tax. The Department cannot estimate the amount of the changes.
