SENATE BILL NO. 426
INTRODUCED BY M. SPRAGUE
AN ACT DISTRIBUTING APPROXIMATELY ONE-HALF OF THE FOREIGN CAPITAL DEPOSITORY ASSESSMENT PAYMENTS EQUALLY TO INDIVIDUAL INCOME TAXPAYERS FOR INCOME TAX RELIEF; AND PROVIDING AN IMMEDIATE EFFECTIVE DATE AND AN APPLICABILITY DATE.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MONTANA:
Section 1. Income tax relief -- foreign capital depository assessment distribution. (1) The assessment payments made on June 15 of each year by foreign capital depositories pursuant to 15-31-803 must be redistributed to taxpayers as income tax relief as provided in this section.
(2) Each year, the department shall determine the June 15 collections under 15-31-803, including any late payments of assessments that should have been paid on any preceding June 15, together with penalty and interest on late payments. The amount of the collections divided by the number of individual state income taxpayers who filed income tax returns pursuant to 15-30-103 for the previous tax year equals the amount of income tax relief to which each taxpayer is entitled.
(3) The department shall include on each Montana state individual income tax form the amount of the income tax relief provided under this section. The form must provide that after the taxpayer's determination of taxes, the amount of the income tax relief is subtracted from the amount of taxes owed by the taxpayer. If the amount of taxes due is exceeded by the amount of income tax relief, the department shall pay the excess amount to the taxpayer, but only if the amount to be paid exceeds $10.
(4) (a) A return filed using the filing status married filing jointly is considered to have been filed by one taxpayer.
(b) A fiduciary or a beneficiary of an estate or trust who was required to file an income tax return pursuant to 15-30-135 is not considered a taxpayer unless a return was filed on behalf of the decedent the previous year.
Section 2. Codification instruction. [Section 1] is intended to be codified as an integral part of Title 15, chapter 30, and the provisions of Title 15, chapter 30, apply to [section 1].
