Current Bill Summary

SB 15 - This act enables a taxpayer making less than $30,000 per year who modifies their home to be accessible to a disabled person who resides with the taxpayer to claim a credit against their income tax for one hundred percent of the costs of modification, up to $2,500. For taxpayers making between $30,000 and $60,000, a credit will be allowed in the amount equal to fifty percent of the costs of modification, up to $2,500. All tax credits will be refundable, up to $2,500 per year. The credits are not transferrable. The credit has a statewide maximum of $100,000 per year, subject to appropriation.

If any portion of the modification was claimed as a deduction on the taxpayer's federal income tax, then the amount of the tax credit shall be reduced by 1/3.

The credit applies to tax years beginning January 1, 2006, and expires December 31, 2011.

This act is similar to SB 982 (2002), SB 46 (2003) and SCS/SB 1282 (2004).
