Fiscal Note Summary


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


     The stated purpose of this bill is to provide a credit against personal income tax for fees paid for recycling, not to exceed $600. The bill also grants rule-making authority.
    
     According to our interpretation, the passage of this bill would have no revenue impact upon the General Revenue Fund. This bill proposes a credit against personal income tax for fees “paid for recycling services” imposed by WV Code, §22-15-11, §22-15A-19 and §22-16-4. However, the aforementioned code sites impose a fee for the “the disposal of solid waste”. None of these code sites base the imposition of the fees on “recycling services”.
    
     There would be no additional administrative costs to the State Tax Department from the passage of this bill.
