NOTES

Exception to sunset for credit for Constructing Renewable Fuel Facilities:
extension of sunset to Jan. 1, 2017 for taxpayers who sign a letter of commitment as of Sept. 1, 2013, and begin construction on or before Dec. 1, 2013.

Exceptions to Article 3A sunsets:

(1) extension of sunset to Jan. 1, 2008 for taxpayers who submit a letter of commitment to create jobs or make new investments to the Department of Commerce.
(2) extension of sunset to Jan. 1, 2010 for an interstate air courier that has a real estate lease of at least 100 acres for a term in excess of 15 years.
(3) extension of sunset to Jan. 1, 2010 for a taxpayer that qualifies as an eligible major industry.
(4) extension of sunset to Jan. 1, 2010 for certain taxpayers located in a Development Zone.

Exceptions to Article 3A carryforwards: large investments can have 20 years of carryforwards; taxpayers who invest at least $50 million in real property, machinery and equipment, or central office or aircraft facility property can have 10 years.

Exception for Article 3J carryforward: If the Secretary of Commerce certifies that the taxpayer's investment will exceed $150 million, carryforwards may be taken for 20 years.

For Article 3A and Article 3J, installments begin in the year after the credit was generated.

Sunset dates for S&U economic incentive refunds indicate the initial date for which purchases are deemed ineligible for refund.

The estimates of credits taken do not include the effect of G.S. 105-130.5(a)(10). This provision effectively increases the income tax liability of corporations by the amount of credit multiplied by the tax rate (6.9%).
