Frequently Asked Questions

What is a retroactive law?

legislation is "retroactive" when it applies new legal consequences to conduct that occurred before the legislation took effect. Congress and state legislatures generally may enact legislation that has retroactive effects when their intent to do so is clear.

Does the legislative power to pass retroactive legislation exist?

The legislative power to pass retroactive legislation is a fact, yet not all states have empowered their legislators to do so. Several state constitutions, such as those of Georgia and Texas, flatly prohibit the legislature from enacting any law with retroactive application, including tax laws.

Why are states enacting retroactive tax levies?

Like the premise of Back to the Future, state governments are tinkering with time. To improve future budget revenues, states are enacting retroactive tax levies. Much to the disappointment of taxpayers, the U.S. Supreme Court recently denied review in several state tax cases challenging the reach of retroactive tax laws.

When is a retroactive tax law unconstitutional?

Where the retroactive application of a tax law is “so harsh and oppressive as to transgress the constitutional limitation,” it will be found to violate due process. A tax law will be found unconstitutional if “the retroactive imposition of the tax after the [taxable event] was arbitrary, harsh, and oppressive.”
