SCS/SB 280 - This act allows a tax credit for contributions to support unplanned pregnancy resource centers. The credit is for 50% of the contribution, cannot exceed $50,000 per year, is not refundable but can be carried forward. No more than a total of $2 million may be claimed in credits in any one year. An unplanned pregnancy resource center is a non-residential facility that provides assistance designed to support women and encourage birth over abortion. The center must be tax exempt, must provide direct person-to-person counseling at no cost, and cannot provide abortion referrals.
This act also reduces the maximum tax credits available for
investments in transportation development in distressed
communities, from $10 million per year to $8 million per year.
