2 Doc pgs Executve Sury The purpose of ths study s to estte the potentl pct to the stte of Clforn by stchng to Sngle Sles Fctor SSF for stte corporte ncoe tx purposes. Ths report predcts tht such stch to the SSF ll: Stulte busness nd ndustrl groth n the stte s esured by ncresed eployent; Help ttrct busness nto the stte; Help retn nd expnd busness nd ndustry; nd Crete ncresed job opportuntes for ll Clfornns To ost effcently nd effectvely ddress those objectves, ths study frst esttes the eployent nd sles effects on fve sttes hch recently stched to SSF. Usng the esttes or preters fro studyng these fve sttes, the study then predcts ht such slr effects ould be n Clforn, nd esttes the net tx revenue effects to Clforn fro such stch. Ths net tx revenue effect ncludes the loss of corporte ncoe tx revenues, offset by the ncrese n other txes. Ths study esttes tht the stch to SSF could, n the long run, crete pproxtely 44,000 pernent jobs n equlbru nd result n n nnul net revenue gn of $4 llon to the stte. The report tht follos provdes detled nforton derved fro the ntensve study conducted for ths progr. Whle no predctve study cn cl to be prescent, the results nd relted predctons re ethodologclly sound nd follo fro plusble fndngs. The nforton contned n ths report s both ccurte nd relevnt to help deterne the overll vlue of Clforn s stchng to n SSF ethod of pportonent.

Brefly, SSF llos fr to pporton ts busness ncoe nto Clforn bsed solely on the rto of ts sles n Clforn to ts totl sles. Currently, Clforn eploys three fctor pportonent forul, bsed on the reltve rtos of Clforn versus totl property, pyroll, nd sles, here the sles fctor ccounts for 50% of the eght used n ths pportonent forul. Snce sngle sles fctor ould gve no eght to property nd pyroll, t s dely beleved to be n ncentve for fr to locte or expnd ts fcltes n the stte snce there ould be no ncoe tx cost of dong so. Understndng ths ncentve effect, nuerous sttes hve grdully stched fro property, pyroll nd sngle sles-eghted tx fctors to double-eghted sles fctors. More recently nuber of sttes ncludng Georg, ousn, Ne York, Oregon, nd Wsconsn hve stched fro double eghted sles fctors to SSF 3. But hve such sttes experenced the econoc groth hoped for by such stch? In short, they hve; on verge n equlbru, hundreds of thousnds of jobs pper to hve been creted. Ths study uses the results fro these fve sttes s benchrk to predct ht slr econoc gns ould be to Clforn n ters of job groth, nd fnds tht such groth could be potentl pernent ncrese of 44,000 jobs n the next to yers. An portnt consderton n the dopton of SSF s lso ts effect on the stte s tx revenues, especlly n lght of predcted $0 bllon defct n 00. Here, ths study predcts tht, fter tkng ccount of drect costs to the stte fro lost corporte ncoe txes, nd lso ncresed personl nd busness txes fro busness expnson, the stte could ctully gn $4 llon n net tx revenues nnully, n the next fe yers.

The ntent of the SSF s to ttrct busness to stte. The purpose of ths pper s to nlytclly nd eprclly exne these ncentve effects usng ultstte fr. The odel s predctons re eprclly supported usng fve sttes hch recently stched fro double-eghted sles fctors to sngle sles tx fctors Georg, ousn, Ne York, Oregon, nd Wsconsn. The results hve sgnfcnt polcy plctons, not only becuse lkers pprently rely on ths ncentve n n ttept to ttrct ne busness nvestent nto ther sttes, but lso becuse the drect costs of these ncentves y be substntl. Ths pper odels fr hch cn vl tself of fvorble sles pportonent rules, n loctng/expndng to ne stte. Becuse the fr s decson s lso ffected by stte tx rtes nd structures, the odel lso llos for vryng tx rtes nd both untry nd seprte ccountng tx structures. The fr fces to coon scenros.
