The act implements the recommendations of the department of regulatory agencies, as contained in the department's sunset review of the issuance of private letter rulings (rulings) and information letters (letters) by the department of revenue, as follows:
- Continues the issuance of rulings and letters by the department of revenue and removes the issuance of rulings and letters from the sunset review process;
- Allows the department of revenue to extend the 90-day deadline to issue a ruling if the taxpayer agrees to the extension; and
- Allows the department of revenue to issue letters and rulings for any issue related to a tax or fee administered by the department of revenue.
For the 2023-24 fiscal year, the act appropriates $53,644 from the private letter ruling fund to the department of revenue for use by the taxation business group for personal services related to taxation services.
