Wildfire Mitigation Income Tax Credit

Concerning changing the wildfire mitigation income tax deduction to the wildfire mitigation income tax credit.
Session:
2016 Regular Session
Subject:
Fiscal Policy & Taxes
Bill Summary

The bill changes the wildfire mitigation income tax deduction to the wildfire mitigation income tax credit. An income tax deduction reduces a taxpayer's taxable income, the amount to which the tax rate is applied. A tax credit reduces a taxpayer's tax liability by taking a dollar-for-dollar reduction in what is owed by what the credit allows. The bill allows a landowner a credit of 25% of the costs incurred in performing wildfire mitigation measures, not to exceed $2,500. Any amount in excess of the landowner's tax liability in the year the credit is first claimed may be carried forward to offset the landowner's future tax liability for 5 years.
