Fiscal Note - State of Utah - 2014 General Session
HB0138S01 - Underground Petroleum Storage Tank Amendments
State Government (UCA 36-12-13(2)(b)):
Enactment of this bill could increase revenue to state by $0.96 million in FY 2015 and by $2.07 million in FY 2016 due to changes in fees and definitions related to underground storage tanks. This revenue could be offset by risk-based refunds of approximately $0.60 million in FY 2015 and by $1.43 million in FY 2016 that the Utah State Tax Commission will provide to low-risk underground storage tank operators. The bill also reduces the interest rate on loans related to underground storage tanks from three percent to zero percent beginning in FY 2015. Loan interest will decrease by about $2,200 per year over the next 10 years. The bill also transfers balances of $5.95 million from the Petroleum Storage Tank Loan Fund and the Petroleum Damage Fund to the Petroleum Storage Tank Trust Fund in FY 2014.
