VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
(A138, R162, S140)
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 12-6-3535, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE STATE INCOME TAX CREDIT ALLOWED TAXPAYERS MAKING QUALIFIED REHABILITATION EXPENDITURES FOR A CERTIFIED HISTORIC STRUCTURE IN THIS STATE, TO EXTEND THE CREDIT TO LICENSE TAXES AND TO CLARIFY THE APPLICATION OF THE CREDIT TO PASS-THROUGH ENTITIES; TO AMEND SECTION 12-43-215, RELATING TO VALUATION OF OWNER-OCCUPIED RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY FOR AD VALOREM TAX PURPOSES, SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR THE VALUATION TO BE CONSIDERED BY AN ASSESSOR WHEN THE VALUE OF THE PROPERTY ASSESSMENT IS APPEALED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Taxes to which credit applies
SECTION 1. Section 12-6-3535(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 69 of 2003, is amended to read:
"(A) A taxpayer who is allowed a federal income tax credit under Section 47 of the Internal Revenue Code for making qualified rehabilitation expenditures for a certified historic structure located in this State is allowed to claim a credit against income or license tax imposed pursuant to this title. For the purposes of this section, 'qualified rehabilitation expenditures' and 'certified historic structure' are defined as provided in the Internal Revenue Code Section 47 and the applicable treasury regulations. The amount of the credit is ten percent of the expenditures that qualify for the federal credit. To claim the credit allowed by this subsection, the taxpayer must attach to the return a copy of the section of the federal income tax return showing the credit claimed, along with any other information that the Department of Revenue determines is necessary for the calculation of the credit provided by this subsection."
Application of credit to pass-through entities
SECTION 2. Section 12-6-3535(C)(2) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 69 of 2003, is amended to read:
"(2) The credit earned pursuant to this section by an 'S' corporation owing corporate level income tax must be used first at the entity level. Any remaining credit passes through to each shareholder in a percentage equal to each shareholder's percentage of stock ownership. The credit earned pursuant to this section by a general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability company, or any other entity taxed as a partnership pursuant to Subchapter K of the Internal Revenue Code must be passed through to its partners and may be allocated among any of its partners, including without limitation, an allocation of the entire credit to one partner, in any manner agreed by the partners."
Valuation to be used
SECTION 3. Section 12-43-215 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 12-43-215. When owner-occupied residential property assessed pursuant to Section 12-43-220(c) is valued for purposes of ad valorem taxation, the value of the land must be determined on the basis that its highest and best use is for residential purposes. When a property owner or an agent for a property owner appeals the value of a property assessment, the assessor shall consider the appeal and make any adjustments, if warranted, based on the market values of real property as they existed in the year that the equalization and reassessment program was conducted and on which the assessment is based.
SECTION 4. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor and applies to applicable tax periods beginning after 2004.
Ratified the 2nd day of June, 2005.
Approved the 7th day of June, 2005.
