The credit may not exceed twenty-five dollars in a taxable year for each foster child placed with the foster parent. For purposes of this section:

(3) 'foster parent' means a parent licensed by the South Carolina Department of Social Services to care for a foster child placed with the foster parent by that department.
The Department of Revenue may prescribe requirements for that evidence of eligibility that it determines necessary for the administration of this credit."
SECTION 2. Upon approval by the Governor, this act is effective for taxable years beginning after 2001.
