2021 Legislative Tax Measures

This page will hold our grids of 2021 Legislative Tax Measures covered so far in this session. For the latest grid, please scroll down.

Please check out our lists of bills we are watching:

Below are our lists of 2021 Legislative Tax Measures.

The first page of the list is the list of bills introduced by the Executive Branch.  These are organized by agency:

  • AGR = Dept. of Agriculture
  • BED = Dept. of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism
  • BUF = Dept. of Budget and Finance
  • CCA = Dept. of Commerce and Consumer Affairs
  • HHL = Dept. of Hawaiian Home Lands
  • HTH = Dept. of Health
  • LNR = Dept. of Land and Natural Resources
  • PSD = Dept. of Public Safety
  • TAX = Dept. of Taxation
  • TRN = Dept. of Transportation

Subsequent pages in the list are organized by tax type, and within tax type by bill number.

Numbers in strikethrough text are measures that appear to be dead, either because they missed a deadline or because they were deferred by a committee hearing the measure.  However, no measure is permanently dead until the legislative session adjourns.

Here is our first list. 

Here is our List 1A. It was produced after the First Decking deadline. We don’t always produce this list, but hey, this year is special.

Here is our List 2. It corresponds to our Second Breakfast Briefing on March 16.

Here is our List 3. It corresponds to our Third Breakfast Briefing on April 12.

Here is our List 4. It corresponds to our Final Breakfast Briefing on May 18. It was updated on June 21 to show four bills out of 28 on Gov. Ige’s intent to veto list.

To find commentary in the Legislative Tax Bill Service, please use the category links (by tax type) or the search tools on the right.

Q: Are there bills on later grids that aren’t on the first one? Why is that?

A: Yes, there are. The first grid contains the Administration bills whether they’ve had a hearing or not, and any other bill that has had a hearing. By the first lateral deadline, some bills (if referred to only one committee) may be still alive although they haven’t had a hearing yet. If the one committee to which the bill is referred hears the bill, that bill will then appear on the grid. If all versions of a bill are dead, we remove it from the grid. Another possibility is that a bill that doesn’t contain tax/public finance provisions is amended to contain them.
