House committee substitute to the 2nd edition makes the following changes.

Amends proposed GS 143B-437.020 by adding and defining the terms agriculture and economic development incentive programs. Amends the definition of eligible project to mean a discrete and specific economic development project that would expand agricultural production or processing capabilities that requires new or expanded natural gas or propane gas service, deleting the requirement that the project be located in a rural area. Amends the definition of project carrying costs to make clarifying changes.

Provides that economic development incentive programs may use funds for agricultural projects for the specified purposes (was, state, regional, and local economic development funds may, at the fund manager's discretion, be used for the specified purposes).

Adds that economic development incentive programs may use funds for agricultural projects to allow the owner of an eligible project to pay for cost-effective alternatives that would reduce infrastructure costs or increase energy efficiency by adding supplemental uses of propane gas to increase annual volume throughput, reduce energy consumption, reduce energy costs, or enhance the feasibility of the project or the provision of propane gas service.

Clarifies that total incentive funds for all eligible projects must not cumulatively exceed $5 million per biennium. Requires managers of economic development incentive programs to promptly report payments to the Department of Commerce, which must promptly notify economic development incentive program managers when the funding limitation has been reached for the biennium.

Makes conforming changes, including replacing the term "funds" with "incentive funds."

Changes the act's titles.

S 538 (2013-2014) RESULT FROM DOR INACTION ON REVIEW REQUESTS. Filed Mar 28 2013, A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO GRANT A TAXPAYER'S REQUEST FOR A REFUND OR TO REMOVE A PROPOSED ASSESSMENT BY OPERATION OF LAW IF THE DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE HAS NOT ISSUED A FINAL DETERMINATION WITHIN THE STATUTORY TIME FRAME.

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

Amends GS 105-241.11 to require a taxpayer's request for review of a proposed denial of a refund or a proposed assessment to include a detailed explanation setting out the specific grounds of the request. Provides that inability to pay an assessment is not a sufficient basis for requesting review. Requests are automatically denied if the taxpayer fails to comply with these requirements. Provides that when there is an automatic denial, the Department of Revenue (Department) does not have to schedule a conference with the taxpayer and must send the taxpayer notice that the denial is final and not subject to further review. Requires the notice, in the case of an automatic denial of a request for review of a proposed assessment, to include a statement that the assessment is collectible under GS 105-241.22.

Amends GS 105-241.13(a)(3) to allow the Department to make multiple requests for information from a taxpayer concerning a request for a departmental review of a proposed denial of a refund or a proposed assessment. Requires all requests to be made 60 days before the final determination must be issued.

Amends GS 105-241.14 to add that the Secretary and taxpayer may mutually agree to reduce the nine-month period for a final determination on a proposed denial of a refund or proposed assessment. Amends the circumstances that negate the consequences of inaction by the Department as follows: (1) amends a proposed circumstance to also include that the Department made a written request for additional information and the taxpayer has not responded in a complete manner as determined by the Secretary; (2) provide in a proposed circumstance that if the time limit set for the review will expire within 60 days of receipt of the requested information from the taxpayer, the Department must review the information and either grant the refund, remove the proposed assessment, or issue a final determination within 90 days of receipt of the requested information; and (3) add a circumstance where the Department received a request for review based on a proposed denial of refund, and the denied refund is based on a specified contingent event that has not been finalized.

Changes the effective date of the act to January 1, 2014 (was, when the act becomes law).

Adds a new Section 4 to the act as follows. Amends GS 143-64.17L(e) to allow the Board of Governors to allow UNC Charlotte, in addition to NC State University, to implement an energy conservation measure without entering into a guaranteed savings contract. Amends GS 142-63 by deleting the provision that allowed a state governmental unit that has solicited a guaranteed energy conservation measure or the State Treasurer to execute and deliver a financing contract to finance the costs of the energy conservation measure, with a $5 million cap on the aggregate outstanding amount payable to the state under financing contracts entered into under the Article.
