SB 237 - Fiscal Note 1
This bill would create a credit against corporate income tax for qualifying expenditures for childcare, residential heating
and electricity affordability, housing affordability, and food affordability. The department is authorized to adopt
regulations to define qualifying expenditures.
The tax credit is limited to 50 percent of qualifying expenditures and may not exceed 50 percent of a corporation’s tax
liability for the year. Unused credits may not be sold, traded, transferred, or applied in a prior or subsequent year.
Qualifying expenditures may not be claimed for credit under another provision of Title 43, nor be taken as a deduction (26
U.S.C.) in computing the Alaska corporate income tax.
Revenue Impact
The Division is not able to predict the behavior of corporations in response to this bill—how much or for which activities
they might contribute. For that reason, this note is indeterminate. However, we have completed an analysis which
forecasts the maximum revenue impact this bill could have on corporate income tax revenue. Because the bill creates a
credit for money contributed and qualified spending, the impact would be a reduction to corporate income tax revenue.
The analysis splits out the maximum potential impact by non‐petroleum and petroleum taxpayers below:
The above analysis is estimated by scaling company tax return information by available earning per share projections. This
information is then rolled up by a sector by sector basis and scaled to reflect the Alaskan corporate tax base.
Implementation Costs
This legislation would require the Department of Revenue to make minor changes to its Tax Revenue Management System
(TRMS). Resources required to implement this bill would include staff time to updated tax forms, TRMS, and Revenue
Online, and other miscellaneous costs when applicable. These costs will be absorbed by the Tax Division using existing
