Fiscal Note Summary


Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.


    The stated purpose of this bill is to allow a tax deduction for all prepaid tuition contracts or college savings plans regardless of whether they are administered by the board of the college prepaid tuition and savings program.
    
    As written, this bill would allow a decreasing modification to federal adjusted gross income for any payment made under a prepaid tuition contract or other college savings plan, whether or not such plan is administered by the “Board of College Prepaid Tuition and Savings Program”. The passage of this bill would result in a loss to the General Revenue Fund of roughly $8.5 million per year.
    
    If all returns were accepted as filed, there would be no additional administrative cost to the State Tax Department.
