Tax Expenditure Evaluation Interim Study Committee.
Current law requires a legislative declaration stating the intended purpose
of a new tax expenditure or the intended purpose for extending an
expiring tax expenditure. The bill expands that law by:
  • Requiring a statutory legislative declaration, not

  • Requiring any bill that creates a new tax expenditure to
include a repeal of the expenditure after a specified period
of tax years and any bill that extends an expiring tax
expenditure to extend the expenditure for a specified period
of tax years; and
  • Requiring the statement of the intended purpose to be a part
of a tax preference performance statement, which includes:
  • The classification of the type of the tax expenditure;
  • Detailed information regarding the legislative
purpose of the tax expenditure, which, at minimum,
includes clear, relevant, and ascertainable metrics
and data requirements that allow the tax expenditure
to be measured for effectiveness in achieving the
intended purpose.
