LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 668, as amended, Petrie-Norris. Property taxation: assessment appeals boards. Personal income taxes: exclusion: forgiven student loan debt.
The Personal Income Tax Law provides various exclusions from gross income in determining tax liability, including an exclusion for the amount of student loan indebtedness repaid or canceled pursuant to specified federal law, relating to repayment plans.
Existing federal law, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, excludes from gross income for purposes of federal income taxes any amount that would otherwise be includible in gross income by reason of the discharge after December 31, 2020, and before January 1, 2026, of specified student loans.
This bill would apply that provision of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to the Personal Income Tax Law.
This bill would take effect immediately as a tax levy.

Existing property tax law authorizes the board of supervisors of any county to create assessment appeals boards for the county to equalize the valuation of taxable property within the county for purposes of taxation, as provided. Existing law requires the clerk of the board of supervisors to be the clerk of the assessment appeals board and perform the same duties as the clerk is required to perform in connection with the proceedings of the county board of equalization.

This bill would make nonsubstantive changes to those provisions.
