SB 146 - This act increases the amount of tax credits available for taxpayers who modify their home to be accessible for seniors or disabled people who reside with such taxpayer. Under current law, up to one hundred thousand dollars in tax credits remaining unused under the rebuilding communities tax credit program are allocated for use by taxpayers who modify their homes for disabled persons residing with such taxpayers. This act increases the amount of available tax credits by allocating all unused tax credits under the rebuilding communities tax credit program for use by taxpayers who modify their homes for seniors or disabled persons residing with such taxpayers. The rebuilding communities tax credit program is capped at ten million dollars annually. Constructing additional rooms in the dwelling or a new structure on the property for the purpose of accommodating the senior or disabled person is added as a new eligible cost for which the tax credit may be claimed.
This act is identical to HB 528 (2009) and substantially similar to a provision in HCS/HB 323 (2009), HCS/HB 958 (2009), SS/SCS/SB 1283 (2008) and to SB 717 (2008).
