HB22-1002 Fifth Year High School Concurrent Enrollment 
Comment: 1/18/22
Position: Support
Calendar Notification: NOT ON CALENDAR
Sponsors: M. Weissman (D) | J. Bacon (D) / J. Buckner (D)
Summary:

Under current law, a qualified student who is selected to participate in the accelerating students through concurrent enrollment (ASCENT) program by the department of education (department) may enroll in postsecondary courses and be included in the pupil enrollment of a school district, board of cooperative services, or charter school (local education provider) for funding during the year following the student's fourth year of high school. The number of students who are selected to participate in the ASCENT program is limited each year through the budget process.

The bill removes the limit on the number of program participants and allows each qualified student selected by the enrolling local education provider to participate in the program. The bill reduces the number of postsecondary credits a qualified student must have completed to be eligible to participate in the ASCENT program. The bill directs the department to distribute to each local education provider for each ASCENT program participant an amount equal to 3% of the per-pupil extended high school funding amount to pay for non-tuition expenses the qualified student incurs in participating in the postsecondary courses.

Under existing law, a qualified student who fails to complete a concurrent enrollment course must repay the local education provider for the amount of tuition, and a local education provider may require a qualified student to repay the tuition amount if the qualified student earns a failing grade for a concurrent enrollment course. The bill repeals these provisions.

HB22-1039 Sales & Use Tax Exemption Form Simplification 
Comment: 1/18/22
Position: Support
Calendar Notification: NOT ON CALENDAR
Sponsors: C. Kipp (D) / K. Van Winkle (R) | J. Bridges (D) | R. Woodward (R)
Summary:

Sales and Use Tax Simplification Task Force. For some, but not all, exemptions from state and state-collected local sales and use taxes, a person who wishes to establish the right to obtain an exemption is either explicitly required by state law or required by the department of revenue (department) as it administers and enforces state law to complete a form created by the department, which, depending on which exemption is sought, may be described as an affidavit, application, certificate, certification, declaration, or statement. The bill requires the department to examine its forms and requirements relating to their use and, to the extent feasible without impairing the proper administration of the exemptions, simplify the forms and related requirements for persons making tax-exempt purchases. Exceptions to existing statutory requirements relating to the forms are made for any simplifications made by the department.

SB22-032 Simplify Local Sales & Use Tax Administration 
Comment: 1/18/22
Position: Support
Calendar Notification: NOT ON CALENDAR
Sponsors: J. Bridges (D) | R. Woodward (R) | K. Van Winkle (R) / C. Kipp (D)
Summary:

Sales and Use Tax Simplification Task Force. In order to enable the streamlining of the imposition, collection, and administration of sales and use taxes imposed by local taxing jurisdictions on retail sales made by retailers that have a state standard retail license and either do not have physical presence in a local taxing jurisdiction or have only incidental physical presence in a local taxing jurisdiction through the streamlining of application requirements for and elimination of fees for local general business licenses, the bill requires the department of revenue (department) to require sufficient information to be collected from such a retailer, when the retailer applies for or renews a state standard retail business license through the state's electronic sales and use tax simplification system (SUTS) or by other means or at any other time to the extent necessary, and made available to local taxing jurisdictions to ensure that concerns of local taxing jurisdictions, including but not limited to concerns relating to administrative efficiency, retailer compliance, and collection of sales and use tax revenue are addressed. The department is required to consult with local taxing jurisdictions when determining what information to collect and how to make the information collected available to local taxing jurisdictions and making and testing modifications. The department is also required to consult with retailers and to address any reasonable concerns they may have. The department is required to accomplish these tasks expeditiously so that no later than July 1, 2023, and sooner if feasible, a retailer that has a state standard retail license and either does not have physical presence within a local taxing jurisdiction or has only incidental physical presence can make retail sales within the local taxing jurisdiction without having to obtain a general business license from the local taxing jurisdiction.

On and after July 1, 2022, a local taxing jurisdiction is prohibited from charging a fee for a local general business license to a retailer that has a state standard retail license, makes retail sales within the local taxing jurisdiction, and either does not have physical presence within the local taxing jurisdiction or has only incidental physical presence within the local taxing jurisdiction. On and after July 1, 2023, a local taxing jurisdiction is prohibited from requiring such a retailer to apply separately to the local taxing jurisdiction for a general business license. A local taxing jurisdiction must automatically issue a general business license to such a retailer unless the local taxing jurisdiction has previously revoked a general business license held by the retailer for a violation of its local code.

For the 2022-23 state fiscal year, $2,100 is appropriated to the department of revenue for use by the taxation services division to implement the bill.
