A taxpayer may be entitled to a deduction from Kansas adjusted gross income of the amortizable costs of a new facility or expansion of an existing biomass-to-energy plant. The deduction is equal to 55 percent of the amortized costs of the facility for the first taxable year and five percent for the next nine taxable years. This provision applies to all taxable years commencing after Dec. 31, 2005. (K.S.A. 79-32,237)
For all taxable years commencing after Dec. 31, 2005, any new biomass-to-energy plant property or any expanded biomass-to-energy plant property is exempt from all property taxes levied from and after purchase or commencement of construction or installation of such property and for the 10 taxable years immediately following the taxable year in which construction or installation of such property is completed. (K.S.A. 79-229)
The Kansas Development Finance Authority is authorized to issue revenue bonds in amounts sufficient to pay the costs of construction or expansion.
