26 man of the Idaho housing and finance association to the state tax commis-
27 sion pursuant to section 67-6211, Idaho Code, in each year is continuously
28 appropriated and shall be paid to any capital reserve fund, established by
29 the Idaho housing and finance association pursuant to section 67-6211,

26 years on the personal property described as business inventory in subsec-
27 tions (1) and (2) of section 63-602W, Idaho Code, for all counties in the
28 state. The percentage so determined for each county shall be applied to
29 the sales tax distributed under this subsection and the resulting sum
30 shall be paid to the county treasurer of each county for distribution to

33 the tax charge, applicable to the current property roll equalized by
34 county commissioners sitting as a board of equalization, of each tax-
35 ing district within the county, except school districts, and divide
36 it by the total current tax charges applicable to the current prop-
37 erty roll of all taxing districts, except school districts, within
38 said county and the resulting percentages shall be applied to the
39 county's proportionate share of said sales tax account and the
40 resulting amount shall be distributed to each taxing district in the
41 county periodically but not less frequently than quarterly by the
42 county auditor and applied by such taxing districts in the same man-
43 ner and in the same proportions as revenues from property taxation.
44 (ii) The moneys set aside and appropriated to the county treasurer
45 out of the sales tax account above may be considered by the counties
46 and other taxing districts and budgeted against at the same time, in
47 the same manner and in the same year as revenues from taxation on all
48 classes of personal property which these moneys replace.

50 shall be subject to the redistribution provisions of section 40-801, Idaho

54 allterrain all-terrain vehicle or other vehicle processed by the county asses-
55 sor or the Idaho transportation department excepting those applications in
1 which any sales or use taxes due have been previously collected by a retailer,
2 shall be a fee for the services of the assessor of the county or the Idaho
3 transportation department in collecting such taxes, and shall be paid into the
4 current expense fund of the county or state highway account established in
5 section 40-702, Idaho Code.

13 tion that the population of that city bears to the population of all
14 cities within the state; and
15 (ii) Fifty percent (50%) of such amount shall be paid to the various
16 cities, and each city shall be entitled to an amount in the propor-
17 tion that the preceding year's market value for assessment purposes
18 for that city bears to the preceding year's market value for assess-
19 ment purposes for all cities within the state.
20 (2) One-half (1/2) shall be paid to the state's general account or to the
21 various counties as follows:
22 (i) One million three hundred twenty thousand dollars ($1,320,000)

30 reserve for payments under other subsections of this section shall be distrib-
31 uted to the general account.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation increases the amount of the Sales Tax that
is automatically distributed to the Permanent Building Fund
(PBF) each year from $500,000 to $5 million.
Since 1965, the year sales taxes were first collected, $500,000
of those taxes have been distributed to the Permanent Building
Fund annually to help construct and maintain state buildings.
Thirty-five years ago, half a million dollars was 1.8 percent of
gross sales tax collections. Today, half a million dollars is 0.07
percent of that amount. Were the FY 2001 PBF distribution in the
same proportion as the FY 1966 amount, the Permanent Building Fund
would receive $13.5 million.
The Permanent Building Fund receives revenue from a variety of
sources including the sales tax, cigarette tax, beer tax, $10
income tax filing fee (head tax), the lottery and interest from
the Budget Stabilization Fund. Total FY 2001 PBF revenues are
estimated to be $31 million.
The Permanent Building Fund received FY 2001 requests totaling
$100 million for new building construction, as well as alteration,
maintenance and repair of existing state buildings. It is important
to note that those requests represent only a portion of the state's
total need for new construction and maintenance projects.
This legislation will reduce the amount of sales taxes being
distributed to the General Fund by $4.5 million per year.
