STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1033-18
RE: H.B. No. 2416
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Finance, to which was referred H.B. No. 2416 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO TAX ON INTANGIBLE PROPERTY,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to clarify that, for the general excise and use tax, intangible property is sourced to the location where it is used. Specifically, this measure exempts intangible property used outside the State from the general excise tax and imposes use tax on intangible property, acquired from an unlicensed seller, that is used in the State.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the effective date to July 1, 2030, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Finance that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 2416, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 2416, H.D. 1, and be placed on the calendar for Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Finance,
SYLVIA LUKE, Chair
