(35 ILCS 5/206)
(from Ch. 120, par. 2-206)
Tax credits for coal research and coal utilization equipment.
(a) Until January 1, 2005, each corporation subject to this Act
entitled to a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of
Section 201 in an amount equal to 20% of the amount donated to the Illinois
Center for Research on Sulfur in Coal.
(b) Until January 1, 2005, each corporation subject to this Act
be entitled to a credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b)
of Section 201 in an amount equal to 5% of the amount spent during the
taxable year by the corporation on equipment purchased for the purpose of
maintaining or increasing the use of Illinois coal at any Illinois facility
owned, leased or operated by the corporation. Such equipment shall be
limited to direct coal combustion equipment and pollution control equipment
necessary thereto. For purposes of this credit, the amount spent on
qualifying equipment shall be defined as the basis of the equipment used to
compute the depreciation deduction for federal income tax purposes.
For tax years ending on or after December 31, 1987, the credit shall be
allowed for the tax year in which the amount is donated or the equipment
purchased is placed in service, or, if
the amount of the credit exceeds the tax liability for that year, whether
it exceeds the original liability or the liability as later amended, such
excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax liability of the 5
taxable years following the excess credit years. The credit shall be
applied to the earliest year for which there is a liability. If there is
credit from more than one tax year that is available to offset a liability,
earlier credit shall be applied first.
