Taxation: Federal Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021: Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act: shuttered venue operator grants.


The Personal Income Tax Law and the Corporation Tax Law, in conformity with federal income tax law, generally define "gross income" as income from whatever source derived, and provide various exclusions from gross income. Existing law requires any bill authorizing a new tax expenditure to contain, among other things, specific goals, purposes, and objectives the tax expenditure will achieve, detailed performance indicators, and data collection requirements. Existing federal law, the Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act, among other things, awards grants to eligible shuttered venue operators, including live venue operators or promoters, theatrical producers, and live performing arts organization operators. Existing federal law excludes from gross income for purposes of federal income taxes any amount received in the form of a shuttered venue operator grant, as specified. Existing federal law prohibits reductions in tax deductions, reductions in tax attributes, and denials of basis adjustments, for federal income tax purposes based on that exclusion. This bill, for taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2019, and in conformity with federal law, would exclude from gross income any amount received in the form of a federal shuttered venue operator grant. The bill would adopt, except as provided, the provisions of the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, prohibiting any reduction in tax deductions, reductions in tax attributes, and denials of basis adjustments based on the exclusion from gross income, as provided. This bill would provide findings to comply with the additional information requirement for any bill authorizing a new tax expenditure. This bill would also make findings and declarations related to a gift of public funds. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute.
