Port Tax Credit Guidelines

  

During the 2011 Session, the Virginia General Assembly passed legislation that created three port income tax credits: 

  • The Barge and Rail Usage Tax Credit (HB 2385 and SB 1282);
  • The International Trade Facility Tax Credit (SB 1136); and
  • The Virginia Port Volume Increase Tax Credit (HB 2531 and SB 1481)

The Department of Taxation has published the following drafts: the Barge and Rail Usage Tax Credit Guidelines, the International Trade Facility Tax Credit Guidelines, and the Port Volume Increase Tax Credit Guidelines.  As of October 19, 2011, these documents are available on the Port Tax Credit Guidelines website

Our current guideline process allows for a 60-day comment period immediately after a public draft has been distributed.   Accordingly, public comments will be accepted on this draft through December 19, 2011.  Please submit any comments or questions to me via e-mail at kristin.collins@tax.virginia.gov.
