Credit Allowance


(1)

A person or entity that makes a qualified equity investment shall, at the time of investment, earn a vested credit against the taxes otherwise due under ORS chapter 316, 317 or 318.

(2)

The total amount of the tax credit available to a taxpayer under this section shall equal 39 percent of the purchase price of the qualified equity investment. The applicable percentage is zero percent for years 1 and 2, seven percent for year 3 and eight percent for years 4, 5, 6 and 7. A tax credit allowed under this section may not be sold or transferred, with the exception that tax credits that a partnership, limited liability company, S corporation or other pass-through entity is entitled to claim may be allocated to the partners, members or shareholders of the entity for their direct use in accordance with the provisions of any agreement among the partners, members or shareholders.

(3)

The holder of a qualified equity investment or any partner, member or shareholder of such holder pursuant to subparagraph 2 above on a particular credit allowance date of the qualified equity investment may claim a portion of the tax credit against its tax liability for the tax year that includes the credit allowance date equal to the applicable percentage for that credit allowance date multiplied by the purchase price of the qualified equity investment.

(4)

The credit allowed under this section may not exceed the tax liability of the taxpayer claiming the credit for the tax year in which the credit is claimed.

(5)

For qualified low-income community investments made, any tax credit otherwise allowable under this section that is not used by the taxpayer in a particular tax year may be carried forward and offset against the taxpayers tax liability in any succeeding tax year. Any credit remaining in the next succeeding tax year may be carried forward and used in the second succeeding tax year. Any credit remaining unused in the second succeeding tax year may be carried forward and used in the third succeeding tax year. Any credit remaining unused in the third succeeding tax year may be carried forward and used in the fourth succeeding tax year. Any credit remaining unused in the fourth succeeding tax year may be carried forward and used in the fifth succeeding tax year, but may not be used in any tax year thereafter. For qualified low-income community investments made prior to January 1, 2014, any tax credit otherwise allowed under this section that is not used by the taxpayer in a particular tax year may be carried forward and offset against the taxpayers tax liability in any succeeding tax year.
