RE: H.B. No. 1041
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Economic Development, to which was referred H.B. No. 1041 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO CONFORMITY TO THE INTERNAL REVENUE CODE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to conform Hawaii income and estate and generation-skipping transfer tax laws to the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended as of December 31, 2020.
Your Committee finds that this annual conformity measure is submitted by the Department of Taxation to ensure state income tax and state estate and generation-skipping transfer tax laws conform to the federal Internal Revenue Code as it exists on the December 31st preceding each Regular Session. The purpose of conformity is to update the state tax laws with those changes made to the federal Internal Revenue Code during the past year and to adopt those changes that are appropriate for Hawaii law.
Your Committee has amended this measure by changing the effective date to July 1, 2050, to encourage further discussion.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Economic Development that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 1041, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 1041, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Economic Development,
SEAN QUINLAN, Chair
