SB778 SD1 HD1     
Report Title: General Excise Tax; Exemption Requirement; Trust Fund Liability
Description: Includes an additional requirement for a taxpayer to qualify for general excise tax (GET) benefits, to provide that the taxpayer claiming a GET benefit must owe less than fifty per cent of the taxpayer's total GET liability. Defines "reasonable cause" with respect to the Director of Taxation's authority to waive denial of the GET benefit if failure to comply is due to reasonable cause and not to the wilful neglect of the taxpayer. Specifies that there shall be personal liability for general excise taxes imposed for gross income or gross proceeds for gross excise tax liability not paid. Deletes provisions under section 237-41.5, Hawaii Revised Statutes, that make a person personally liable for interest and penalties on general excise taxes. Effective July 1, 2030. (SB778 HD1)
