Notice of Proposed Rule
DAR File No.: 41169
Filed: 01/12/2017 09:49:34 AM
Purpose of the rule or reason for the change:
H.B. 265 passed during the 2016 General Session, required the Division to make rules to allow a psychiatrist or a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner to apply for and receive a tax credit certificate from the Division under certain circumstances. The amendments to this rule help accomplish that mandate.
Summary of the rule or change:
This section is amended to include in the classification of an informal adjudicative proceeding, initiated by other than a notice of agency action, the Division's approval or denial of an application for a tax credit certificate under Section 58-1-111.
Statutory or constitutional authorization for this rule:
- Subsection 58-1-106(1)(a)
- Subsection 63G-4-102(6)
Anticipated cost or savings to:
the state budget:
The Division will incur minimal costs of approximately $75 to print and distribute the rule once the proposed amendments are made effective. The designation of these matters as informal adjudicative proceedings will reduce the time and expense incurred by the Division in processing the applications. The amount of the savings cannot be estimated as it will vary depending on circumstances.
The proposed amendment only applies to psychiatrists or psychiatric mental health practitioners who apply for a tax credit certificate. As a result, the proposed amendments do not apply to local governments.
No cost to small business is anticipated as a result of this amendment. There may be some savings to small business owners who submit applications, due to the reduced time and expense that will be required to process their applications. The amount of the savings cannot be estimated as it will vary depending on circumstances.
persons other than small businesses, businesses, or local governmental entities:
No cost to licensees is anticipated as a result of this amendment. There may be some savings to licensees who submit applications due to the reduced time and expense that will be required to process their applications. The amount of the savings cannot be estimated as it will vary depending on the circumstances.
Compliance costs for affected persons:
The proposed amendment only applies to psychiatrists or psychiatric mental health practitioners who apply for a tax credit certificate. The Division anticipates no compliance costs for these affected persons.
Comments by the department head on the fiscal impact the rule may have on businesses:
Section R156-46b-202 is amended to meet the mandate of H.B. 265 (2016). The amendment adds to the list of adjudicative proceedings that are classified as informal adjudicative proceedings the approval or denial of application for a tax credit certificate by a psychiatrist, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, or volunteer retired psychiatrist. No fiscal impact on businesses will result from this change.
