       Heavenly Father: Thank You for this day, a day of tribute                                    
       to some valued messengers of Your will.                                                      
                                                                                                    
       Each moment of each day we are blessed with Your                                             
       overwhelming joy, the joy a new mother shares with the                                       
       birth of new life. Each day a new mother emanates Your                                       
       hope, as she prays for her child's safety, success and                                       
       happiness. Every day a mother demonstrates Your                                              
       lessons of forgiveness, for there is not a more forgiving                                    
       soul than a mother.                                                                          
                                                                                                    
       Let us not forget the unbridled Love a mother possesses                                      
       for her children, that love which is Your most powerful                                      
       message.                                                                                     
                                                                                                    
       Watch over our mothers that are in Your presence and                                         
       give them comfort. Give strength to those mothers among                                      
       us so they may continue to deliver Your power. And                                           
       protect our daughters that they too may be messengers of                                     
       Your will.                                                                                   
                                                                                                    
            In the power and the glory of Your name we pray. Amen.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF                                                  
ALASKA:                                                                                           
                                                                                                    
   * Section 1.  The uncodified law of the State of Alaska is amended                             
by adding a new section to read:                                                                    
          PURPOSE.  The purpose of this Act is to create a sustainable                              
source of revenue to help balance the state budget.  Although the                                   
majority of the state's funding will be provided from other revenue                                 
sources, these sources do not provide sufficient revenue to balance the                             
budget.  A tax on income earned in the state, coupled with a credit                                 
based on taxes paid on the permanent fund dividend, is a fair and                                   
sustainable source of revenue.                                                                      
   * Sec. 2.  AS 43.05.240 is amended by adding a new subsection to                               
read:                                                                                               
                   (c)  A taxpayer who seeks redress from a tax imposed                             
          under this title on the grounds that a tax statute or regulation                          
          violates the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution                          
          of the State of Alaska, or is preempted by federal statute,                               
          regulation, or treaty shall file the return with a notice of                              
          protest and pay the tax.  The notice of protest initiates the                             
          informal conference process described in (a) of this section;                             
          however, if the taxpayer timely files an action in superior                               
          court under AS 43.05.275(c), the informal conference process                              
          is terminated.  A taxpayer who fails to file a notice of protest                          
          with the return is not entitled to a refund if the tax statute or                         
          regulation is determined to be unconstitutional.                                          
   * Sec. 3.  AS 43.05.275(a) is amended to read:                                                 
                   (a)  Except as provided in AS 43.20.021 an in (c) of                         
          this section, a claim for credit or refund of a tax under this                        
          title for which a taxpayer is required to file a return or pay a                          
          tax may be filed by the taxpayer                                                          
                           (1)  before the later of                                                
                                      (A)  three years from the time the                            
                   return was filed; or                                                             
                                      (B)  two years from the time the tax                          
                   was paid; or                                                                     
                             (2)  within two years from the time the tax                            
          was paid, if no return was filed.                                                         
   * Sec. 4.  AS 43.05.275(c) is amended to read:

                   (c)  A taxpayer who has filed a notice of protest

          an action in superior court to recover on the claim if the sole                           
          ground for appeal is that a tax statute is                                                
                             (1)  violative of the United States

                             (2)  violative of the state constitution; or                           
                             (3)  preempted by federal statute, regulation,

          sources in the other state or territory and the denominator of
