To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Iowa Open Records Law (Code Chapter 22), I hereby request the following records:
1) A list of all tax credit transfers recorded in the Tax Credit Award, Claim and Transfer Administration System (CACTAS) database since Jan. 1, 2012.
Please note that I am not requesting the creation of a new record. State and federal courts have ruled that a request for an agency to search a queryable database with specific parameters does not constitute the creation of a new record.
I also ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist employed by the Lowell Sun and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest and not for any commercial purposes. I would be happy to discuss my request if it requires clarification. I can be reached at 978-970-4650.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.
This information is confidential taxpayer information which is exempt from
Chapter 22 under Iowa law so we are not able to share that with you. Iowa
Code sections 422.20 and 422.72.
