    CONGRESS TAKES ON ENERGY TAX REFORM

    US House Ways and Means panel releases details of energy tax reform plans

    Brian Scheid, 6 May 2013 (Platts)

    “The architects of Congress' looming tax policy reform have a lot of choices when it comes to energy tax breaks and federal subsidies, the US House of Representatives' Ways and Means Committee said…[B]road proposals include suggestions to eliminate all energy tax expenditures and adopt the Fair Tax or finance tax reform by imposing a carbon tax…[S] lightly more narrow comments call for eliminating all tax expenditures benefiting renewable technologies or replacing them with a technology neutral approach…

    “The 558-page report summarized current tax laws and suggestions for reforms, outlines dozens of potential changes to the federal tax code for oil and gas production, credits for wind and solar productions and tax structures for renewable energy projects…[It] summarized more than 1,300 submissions from stakeholders to Ways and Means on the tax reform efforts…The report examines suggestions made to 11 separate working groups…”

    “…[S]uggestions include keeping various tax preferences for oil and gas companies such as the enhanced oil recovery credit, the deduction for intangible drilling costs and the percentage depletion deduction in place…[or] eliminating these preferences entirely…Other suggestions include eliminating or extending more long-term the production tax credit for renewables, including wind and solar…[and] extending this PTC to cover waste heat, biogas, renewable chemicals and other bio-based products.

    “Last month, the Senate Finance Committee released a 15-page paper which outlined dozens of similar options for revamping tax policies that have long applied to electricity generators, oil and gas drillers and other players in the energy sector.”
