Pursuant to chapter 91, Hawaii Revised Statutes, the Director of Taxation of the State of Hawaii will hold a public hearing at the above-referenced time and place to allow the public to comment on the proposed adoption of the following administrative rules.

Section 237-8.6, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), provides that the county surcharge on state tax shall be levied, assessed, and collected on all gross proceeds and gross income taxable under chapter 237. Section 237-8.6, HRS, also requires the Director of the Department of Taxation to implement rules specifying which transactions are subject to the surcharge. The proposed amendments to section 18-237, Hawaii Administrative Rules, would clarify and provide examples specifying which transactions are subject to the surcharge and to what taxation district the transaction would be assigned.

All interested parties are invited to attend and present their views orally or in writing. Written statements may be submitted to the Director of Taxation before or at the public hearing.

Special accommodations (i.e., sign language interpreter, large print, or taped materials) can be requested by contacting the Director’s Office three weeks in advance of the public hearing.

A copy of the proposed rules may be picked up between 7:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, from the Director’s Office at the Department of Taxation, Room 221, Princess Ruth Keelikolani Building, 830 Punchbowl Street, Honolulu, Hawaii and at the District Tax Offices located at 3060 Eiwa Street, Lihue, Kauai; 54 High Street, Wailuku, Maui; and 75 Aupuni Street, Hilo, Hawaii.
