LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1786, as amended, Mansoor. Sport fishing: licenses. Personal Income Tax Law: gross income exclusion: Olympics.
The Personal Income Tax Law provides for various exclusions from gross income.
This bill would also exclude from gross income the value of any specified prize or award won by a taxpayer in the Olympic Games.
This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.

Existing law requires every person 16 years of age or older who takes any fish, reptile, or amphibian for any purpose other than profit to first obtain a license for that purpose, with specified exceptions, and to have that license on his or her person or in his or her immediate possession when engaged in carrying out any activity authorized by the license. Existing law requires a resident or a nonresident, 16 years of age or older, upon payment of the applicable fee, to be issued a sport fishing license for the period of a calendar year, or, if issued after the beginning of the year, for the remainder of the year.

This bill would revise those provisions to require, on and after January 1, 2015, that a resident or a nonresident, 16 years of age or older, upon payment of the applicable fee, be issued a sport fishing license for the period of 12 consecutive months beginning on the date specified on the license.
