HB 129-FN- FISCAL NOTE
FISCAL IMPACT: [ X ] State [ ] County [ ] Local [ ] None
Estimated Increase / (Decrease)
[ X ] General [ ] Education [ ] Highway [ ] Other
This bill repeals the Education Tax Credit Program (RSA 77-G). This program allows a tax credit to offset business profits tax, the business enterprise tax or both tax liabilities in the tax year in which an approved scholarship donation is made. The Education Tax Credit Program began January 1, 2013. Since that time the education tax credit used has been $20,000 in FY 2014, $115,000 in FY 2015 and $88,819 in FY 2016. The repeal of this program would eliminate the tax credit allowed against the business profits tax and the business enterprise tax resulting in an indeterminable increase in state general fund revenue.
