Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 519 - Current law authorizes a tax credit for all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2023, for the sale of higher ethanol blend fuel and biodiesel fuel and for the production of biodiesel fuel. This act provides that any taxpayer with a tax year beginning prior to January 1, 2023, but ending during the 2023 calendar year shall be allowed a tax credit for the amount of fuel sold or produced during the portion of such tax year that occurs during the 2023 calendar year.

Additionally, current law authorizing a tax credit for the production of biodiesel fuel limits the maximum amount of tax credits that may be authorized in a fiscal year to $4 million. This act increases such annual limit to $5.5 million and removes a provision requiring the Department of Revenue to apportion tax credits among biodiesel producers applying for such tax credits.

This act is identical to provisions in HCS/SS/SCS/SB 92 (2023), as amended, and is substantially similar to HCS/HB 925 (2023) and to provisions in HS/HCS/SS/SB 138 (2023).
