HB15-1159 - Instream Flow Incentive Tax Credit

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning The Instream Flow Incentive Tax Credit For Water Rights Holders.

In 2009, the general assembly enacted the instream flow incentive tax credit for water rights holders for 6 years. When enacted, the tax credit included a trigger that made the credit unavailable if total general fund revenues for a particular fiscal year would not be sufficient to grow the total state general fund appropriations by 6% over the previous fiscal year's appropriations.

The bill extends the instream flow incentive tax credit for water rights holders for an additional 5 income tax years. The bill also makes a change to the requirements of the donation, specifying that the donation may either preserve or improve the environment, rather than requiring that the donation only preserve the environment as originally enacted.

Additionally, the bill removes the application of the trigger to the tax credit.
