Provides that, if a member separates from service with an employer before the member is fully vested in the employer contribution subaccount, the amount in the subaccount that is not vested is: (1) transferred to the member's new employer, if the new employer participates in the plan; or (2) held in the member's employer contribution subaccount until forfeited. Provides that a member who: (1) terminates service in a covered position; and (2) does not perform any service in a covered position for at least 30 days after the date on which the member terminates service; is entitled to withdraw vested amounts in the member's account. Provides that a member may elect to have withdrawals paid as: (1) a lump sum; (2) a direct rollover to another eligible retirement plan; or (3) if the member is at least 62 years of age with at least five years of participation in the plan, a monthly annuity in accordance with the rules of the board.

Provides an income tax deduction for certain amounts a taxpayer included as an item of income in a prior tax year. Specifies that, in determining an Indiana net operating loss deduction, certain modifications to adjusted gross income are not to be applied.

(Under current law, a county's local income tax applies only to residents of the county and to nonresidents who have their principal place of business or employment in the county.) Adds exemptions to certain taxes in connection with an NBA All-Star game and NBA related events when held in Indiana. Provides that a return under the financial institutions tax is due one month after the taxpayer's federal tax return is due. Creates a three month window during which an owner of an aircraft that is located in another state may register in Indiana without paying the difference in the sales tax paid to that state at its rate and the Indiana use tax rate. Provides that the department of state revenue may collect debts of a local unit of government through a tax refund set off program. Requires the legislative services agency to conduct a study concerning the correlation between employment growth and the statutory tax relief realized by C corporations during the period 2011 through 2016.
