Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa House Plan Users a Offers Choice DES MOINES (AP) - Farmers and other nonhighway users of motor fuel would get the choice of two ways of claiming iud tax reimbursement, under a bill passed 88-5, by the Iowa house Monday. They could file quarterly applications for motor fuel tax refunds now provided by law, or let it go until they filed their state income tax return and claim a fuel tax credit then. The senate-passed bill would have substituted the income tax credit for the present system of refunds. Rep (R- tax the Lyle Stephens LeMars), said the income credit system, similar to way the federal government now operates, would eliminate a situation under which many farmers and contractors now lose hundreds of thousands of dollars annually by failing to file their quarterly refund applications on time. Lose Revenue The state might lose a little motor fuel revenue it now is getting but isn’t entitled to, he said, but it would make up for k I I • I    jr I    Legislative Notes bv Frank Nye Nonhighway Fuel    2 Illogical Move Was in Claiming Refunds Perfectly Logical for House J^ES MOINES — The house debated a bill to change Iowa’s the loss in administrative sav-; declared. “We don't want the in8s-    greedy, lecherous, bureaucratic Rep. Harold Fischer (R-Wclls-burgj, filed the amendment to give nonhighway users a choice of which system to use. He declared that under the bill without his amendment, every nonhighway motor fuel user would have to give the state the use of his gas tax money without interest for up to a year. Greedy, Lecherous “We don’t want to be like the federal government,” Fischer Indian Leader Cites Iowa Discrimination government to keep that money and invest it at interest, at the expense of the nonhighway fuel user.” Stephens and others protested that Fischer’s amendment would increase the administrative problems of the department of revenue and lead to the possibility of double collection by farmers. The amendment was first defeated on a 46-46 tie vote. But after Rep. Keith Dunton (D-| Thornburg) won reconsideration, it was passed 56-38. Another amendment, offered by Rep. Quentin Anderson (R-Beaconsfield), would allow the same choice of a quarterly refund or an annual income tax credit for persons operating1 boats on private lakes.
