RE: P2 Tax Credit



http://www.tceq.state.tx.us/assistance/Prop2/prop2.html describes the Texas
version which was originally designed to provide tax relief for pollution
control to offsett the cost of compliance. However about 6 years ago they
included pollution control.  It took a suprising amount of thought. You
probably want to contact Ron Hatlett of the Texas Commission on
Environmental Quality (TCEQ).  He knows the program well and can probably
point you to some resources.  Ron can be reached at 512/239-3100.

I have never heard of any data that could demonstrate how effective these
programs are at encouraging P2.  There is certainly evidence that companies
will take advantage of the program.  However it would take a lot of
interviewing and study to see how effective this type of program is at
encouraging P2. I think they serve as an attention getter, and maybe make
the difference in a cost/benefit analysis.

Subject: P2 Tax Credit


The Indiana Clean Manufacturing Technology Institute and its consultants
first proposed P2 Tax Credit legislation in 1995 and it has been introduced
three times since, but has not been adopted by the state legislature.  We
intend to discuss the topic with a legislative committee this summer.

Does any state currently have P2 Tax Credit legislation that provides
corporate income tax credit for verified, implemented P2 strategies that
resulted in reduced toxics used and/or wastes generated?  If so, do data
exist showing increased tax revenues to the state (from product sales,
business expansion, etc.) as a result of the P2 tax credit?

Thank you for your attention to this request for information.
