Legislative Update No. 8, March 2, 2018

Proponents of Dark Store Theory Present to Senate Assessment/Taxation Committee 

Linda Terrill, an attorney who regularly represents large commercial properties throughout the state, in conjunction with the Kansas Chamber, presented her thoughts on the “dark store theory” to the Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee on Wednesday.  This was an information presentation and there is no bill presently up for discussion.  Ms. Terrill discussed the recent Target case and spent much of her time on the increased valuations occurring in Johnson County.  When asked by Senator Larry Alley whether county appraisers should be state employees, Ms. Terrill said she thought such a change could be helpful because “there is an incentive for counties to raise values and there is not as much incentive at the state level.” 

A copy of Ms. Terrill’s presentation materials is available here.  Ms. Terrill testified that she did not need any legislation to address her concerns because case law is on her side; however, her materials list bullet points of “helpful changes” on page 3, and KAC is concerned that the bulleted list could evolve into a bill. 

Chairman Caryn Tyson has scheduled Tuesday, March 6 for the counties to present their side of the issue to the committee. KAC is working with the Kansas County Appraisers Association to present arguments rebutting this week’s comments from Linda Terrill. 

In listening to the committee, it is evident that the senators on this committee do not understand the tax lid. For example, they do not understand that valuation increases are met with decreased mill levies pursuant to the tax lid.  If your senator sits on the Assessment and Taxation Committee, you may want to visit with him/her to explain the workings of the tax lid.  You might also explain that commissioners do not instruct appraisers to raise values, another comment that is regularly voiced by committee members. 

Standard and Poor's Financial Services has published a paper on the dark store theory and its potential to affect local government credit ratings.  That document is available here.  

Sales and Use Tax for Remote Sales

On March 1 the House Taxation Committee heard HB 2756, a bill that addresses internet sales in Kansas and the non-payment of taxes on out-of-state purchases. Specifically, HB 2756 requires marketplace facilitators—entities that conduct sales through electronic transactions—to collect and remit sales tax on all taxable retail sales in Kansas. The law would apply to marketplace facilitators with gross receipts from retail sales totaling at least $50,000. HB 2756 also addresses cellphone purchases and downloaded media. Each change moves Kansas closer to collecting the sales tax that purchasers already owe.

Historically, the collection of sales tax on internet purchases is a federal issue due to the application of the Commerce Clause. However, Congress has failed to enact legislation to allow the collection of sales tax on interstate commerce.  Kansas—like other states—is failing to collect sales tax on internet purchases, which creates a disadvantage for our storeowners who commit to maintaining brick-and-motor stores within the state. The National Conference of State Legislatures conducted a 2012 study that revealed over $23 billion in sales tax goes uncollected across the United States. In Kansas, the study estimated $279,224,028 in uncollected taxes.

There are a number of federal issues that come into play for HB 2756 both from a constitutional standpoint and a policy standpoint. NACo has an overview on how uncollected sales tax affects Kansas. Lisa Soronen, Executive Director at the State and Local Legal Center, has a helpful overview of the constitutional issues at play with any state action on sales tax on internet purchases. During the hearing, Max Behlke, Director of Budget and Tax in the National Conference of State Legislatures, noted how unlikely Congress is to act on sales tax, which is prompting states to act. The tone of the committee suggested some action is likely.

Tax Lid Exemption for Consolidation of Services 

On the first day back from the turnaround break, the House Tax Committee took up the issue previously covered in HB 2626, which adds a tax-lid exemption after municipal consolidation of services. Nathan Eberline with KAC worked with the League, the Kansas Chamber, and the Kansas Realtors Association to craft an agreement for a new bill. KAC testified in support of the new bill, HB 2755, and the committee placed the bill on the Consent Calendar. This is to avoid having endless amendments on the floor. If no one votes to pull the bill from the Consent Calendar, then we have an improved likelihood of adding this policy to the current law.

911 Legislation 

The Senate Utilities Committee held hearings on SB 420 this week, which would enact amendments proposed to the 911 Act by the 911 Coordinating Council.  The first bill draft circulated by the Council in the third week of the session would have created mandatory state-directed training for local PSAPs.  The lobbyist for law enforcement raised concerns about the training requirement at the 911 Council’s January meeting, and was able to come away with favorable amendments that prevent the Council from enacting mandatory training standards, along with other helpful revisions to the law.  At this week’s hearing, KAC supported the fee increase that would go to PSAPs, but raised concerns about the Council’s ability to assess penalties on PSAPs and last-minute drafting of an unclear sentence that relates to the use of 911 fees for training expenses.  We also noted that the legislation should have been discussed with all stakeholders before the 2018 session so that all parties could be fully informed and heard on the bill.  The committee seemed concerned with the issues they heard raised in testimony, and Senator John Skubal (Johnson County) note that he didn’t think one governmental entity should assess penalties on another governmental entity. Senator Mike Petersen (Sedgwick County) expressed concerns about restrictions on the use of 911 fees. Chairman Rob Olson has asked the stakeholders to gather on Monday for a three-hour work session to iron out their differences. Melissa Wangemann at KAC will be attending that meeting.

Cybersecurity Bills 

Earlier in the session, KAC raised concerns about cybersecurity bills that would require local government to pay substantial fees to access the state network.  There are two bills relating to cybersecurity that have passed the House—Sub for HB 2331 and HB 2359.  These bills do not include the offending language relating to local government fees.  Both bills now touch only on the executive branch of the State.  HB 2331 creates the Kansas Information Security Office (KISO) and establishes the position of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in statute. The bill also would establish the Kansas Information Technology Enterprise (KITE), which would consolidate the functions of the Office of Technology Services (OITS) and transfer current OITS employees and officers to KITE.  The explanation for HB 2359 is much longer, and outlines the duties of the CISO and KISO. A fully summary of that bill is available here

Letter of Support for Medicaid Expansion

The Alliance for a Healthy Kansas has created an automated letter to legislators from local government officials who support expansion of Medicaid.  KAC adopted a position supporting the expansion of Medicaid—also known as Kancare—several years ago and the position remains on our policy statement.  The automated letter that goes to Kansas legislators is available at this link: http://www.expandkancare.com/get-involved/sign-on-letter-for-kansas-counties/

U.S. Supreme Court Gears Up to Hear Remote Sales Tax Issues in South Dakota v. Wayfair

As noted earlier in this Update, the Kansas legislature is currently discussing legislation relating to sales tax on internet sales; meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is gearing up to hear a case that would open the door to states collecting sales tax on remote sales.  The case is South Dakota v. Wayfair, and it is slated for arguments in April.

The International Municipal Lawyers Association interviewed Lisa Soronen of the State and Local Law Center about this case.  Their 30-minute podcast on the case is available here: https://soundcloud.com/internationalmunicipallawyersassociation/scotus-wayfair-north-and-south-dakota-why.
