Current Status : Chapter 29 SLA 05 : 05-26-05

| Sponsor Statement 2 |

05-03-05 : Designed to enable the borough to dissolve or consolidate service areas that are nonfunctional or are functioning below minimum standards and that pose a financial risk to the borough. HB 121 is written in such a way as to protect those service areas that are taxing themselves adequately and doing a good job in maintaining their roads to insure safe passage on them. Note title change

HB 293 : Borough Sales Tax Exemptions
Signed into Law! Chapter 30 SLA 05
Sponsored by Hou. Community & Regional Affairs Committee

An Act relating to a borough sales tax exemption for a source that is taxed by a city in that borough.

Companion Bill : SB 161
Contact : : 465-3732
Last Action : Signed into Law : 05-26-05
Current Status : Chapter 30 SLA 05 : 05-26-05

| Sponsor Statement |

05-07-05 : Clarifies current statutory language to make it plain that a borough government may institute local tax exemptions and avoid the ''stacking of taxes.'' Without this provision, cities within borough boundaries who chose to tax themselves may be subjected to ''double taxation'' should the borough decide to levy a borough wide tax. Under these circumstances, taxable entities may end up paying an 8% tax to the city and an additional 8% tax to the borough. This kind of double taxation severely affects the costs of doing business in those areas and goes against the public policy of Alaska.
