METHODOLOGY:

This bill amends RSA 77:3,I (a) of the interest and dividends tax by increases the filing threshold for individuals only from $2,400 to $4,800 and amends RSA 77:5, I by increasing the exemption on income from $2,400 to $4,800.  Increasing the exemptions under the interest and dividends tax will result in an indeterminable decrease in State General Fund revenue.  The Department cannot determine the potential decrease in revenue in future years; however, the Department did apply the changes contained in this bill (assuming the changes would also apply to RSA 77:3, I (b) and (c), to tax year 2015 to show the impact on revenue in that tax year.  If this bill had been in effect for tax year 2015, State General Fund revenue would have been reduced by $6,994,969.  Additionally, there are some taxpayers who have overpaid their tax liability that carry the overpayment as a credit rather than request a refund.  If a taxpayer no longer has an Interest and Dividends Tax liability due to the changes in this bill, they may request their credit be refunded.  The requested refunds would add to any revenue decrease attributable to this bill.
