This bill would allow as a deduction, under both of those laws for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2015, the amount of any loss of the fair market value of any tangible personal property located in California that is attributable to a rule, regulation, or statute that took effect in the taxable year in which the deduction is claimed, as provided.
This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO
