    A BILL FOR AN ACT concerning taxation.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

SOURCE: ; (03)IN1423.1.1. -->     SECTION 1. [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE] (a) This SECTION applies to state taxes paid:
        (1) in a taxable year beginning after December 31, 1997, and ending before January 1, 2002; and
        (2) by a taxpayer or by the shareholders, partners, beneficiaries, or members of a pass through entity, in the case of a taxpayer that is a pass through entity that did not have state tax liability.
    (b) Notwithstanding IC 6-8.1-9-1 or any other law, if:
        (1) a taxpayer made a qualified expenditure in a taxable year beginning after December 31, 1997, and ending before January 1, 2002, that would otherwise have been subject to the credit provided under IC 6-3.1-6 but for the fact that the taxpayer is a pass through entity that was not included in the definition of taxpayer under IC 6-3.1-6-1 , as the statute was in effect before January 1, 2002; and
        (2) the taxpayer's qualified expenditure would have been eligible for a tax credit if IC 6-3.1-6 , as amended by

P.L.129-2001, SECTION 5, and P.L.129-2001, SECTION 6, had been in effect in the taxable year in which the qualified expenditure was made;
the taxpayer may claim a refund equal to the amount set forth in subsection (c).
    (c) The amount of the refund permitted under subsection (b) is equal to the amount of the state taxes paid in a taxable year described in subsection (b) that would have been subject to a tax credit if IC 6-3.1-6 , as amended by P.L.129-2001, SECTION 5, and P.L.129-2001, SECTION 6, had been in effect in the taxable year.
    (d) In the case of a taxpayer that is a pass through entity that did not have state tax liability, an individual who was a shareholder, partner, beneficiary, or member of the pass through entity in the taxable year for which a refund is permitted under this SECTION may claim a refund. The individual is entitled to a refund equal to:
        (1) the
amount of the refund determined for the pass through entity for the taxable year; multiplied by
         (2) the percentage of the pass through entity's distributive income to which the shareholder, partner, beneficiary, or member is entitled.
The refund provided under this subsection is in addition to a refund to which a shareholder, partner, beneficiary, or member of a pass through entity is entitled. However, a pass through entity and an individual who is a shareholder, partner, beneficiary, or member of the pass through entity may not claim more than one (1) refund for taxes paid in a taxable year described in subsection (b).
    (e) This SECTION expires January 1, 2005.
