     "Manufacturing facility" means a business location, including but not limited to a factory, mill, or plant,  at which more than 50% of the business personal property that is housed in the facility is manufacturing equipment.

STATEMENT

 

     This bill allows a corporation business tax credit for 20% of the costs of manufacturing equipment installed at a manufacturing facility in this State and 20% of the costs of improvements or additions that result in the renovation, modernization or expansion of a manufacturing facility in this State.

     The bill provides that expenditures for manufacturing equipment and manufacturing facility renovation, modernization and expansion for which a credit is allowed under this bill will not be expenditures for which a credit will be allowed under the New Jobs Investment Tax Credit, the Manufacturing and Employment Investment Tax Credit, the Research and Development Credit or the Effluent Treatment and Conveyance Equipment Credit.

     The bill defines "manufacturing equipment" as machinery, apparatus or equipment used in the production of tangible personal property that is eligible for the sales tax exemption for manufacturing equipment.  That is machinery, apparatus or equipment for use or consumption directly and primarily in the production of tangible personal property by manufacturing, processing, assembling or refining, whose use is not incidental to those activities, and which has a useful life of more than one year. The bill defines a "manufacturing facility" as a business location, including but not limited to a factory, mill, or plant, at which more than 50% of the business personal property that is housed in the facility is manufacturing equipment.
