This committee serves the following functions:

- the history, rationale and estimated revenue impact of the credit,
- whether the credit has provided a benefit to this State including, for corporate tax credits, measurable economic development, new investments, creation of new jobs or retention of existing jobs in this State, and
- whether the credit is unnecessarily complex in the application, administration and approval process;
- review the individual and corporate income tax credits pursuant to the schedule prescribed in A.R.S. 43-222; and
