Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to rescinding the sunset date for the targeted jobs withholding tax credit program and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Economic Development Authority hereby proposes to amend Chapter 71, "Targeted Jobs Withholding Tax Credit Program," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 15.106A.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 403.19A.

Purpose and Summary

This rule making proposes to amend 261—Chapter 71 by rescinding paragraph 71.4(2)"e," which contains the sunset date for the Targeted Jobs Withholding Tax Credit Program. This sunset date is also found in Iowa Code section 403.19A(3)"c"(2) as amended by 2019 Iowa Acts, House File 779, section 45. Because the sunset date has been amended legislatively and may be extended again in the future, rescinding this paragraph will prevent confusion and conflict between the Iowa Code and these rules.

Fiscal Impact

This rule making has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.


Any person who believes that the application of the discretionary provisions of this rule making would result in hardship or injustice to that person may petition the Authority for a waiver of the discretionary provisions, if any, pursuant to 261—Chapter 199.

Any interested person may submit written or oral comments concerning this proposed rule making. Written or oral comments in response to this rule making must be received by the Authority no later than 4:30 p.m.on November 26, 2019. Comments should be directed to:
