Income tax; rolling conformity with the Internal Revenue Code. Provides that, beginning with taxable year 2021, Virginia shall generally conform to federal tax laws on a rolling basis, meaning that Virginia tax laws incorporate changes to the Internal Revenue Code as soon as Congress enacts them. However, the bill provides that, unless subsequently adopted by the General Assembly, Virginia shall not conform to any amendments to the Internal Revenue Code that have an impact of more than 0.25 percent on general fund revenues in the fiscal year in which the amendment was enacted or any of the next four fiscal years. The Secretary of Finance, in consultation with the Chairmen of the Senate Committee on Finance and Appropriations and the House Committees on Appropriations and Finance, shall be responsible for determining when an amendment meets these criteria. The Secretary of Finance shall also provide an annual report to such chairmen on the fiscal impact of amendments to the Internal Revenue Code. Read the Bill »
