Financial Institution Excise Tax

The Excise Tax on Financial Institutions is levied to give effect to the provisions of Federal law limiting the right of the states to tax national banking associations.

It is not a tax on income but is an excise tax measured by income. The proceeds of the tax, after the expense of administration, are distributed one-half (50%) to the general fund, 33.3% distributed to the municipalities, and the remaining 16.7% distributed to the counties.
