74-8304. Tax credit for investments in certified Kansas venture capital companies by corporations; determination and allowance. (a) There shall be allowed as a credit against the tax imposed by the Kansas income tax act on the Kansas taxable income of a taxpayer and against the tax imposed by K.S.A. 40-252, and amendments thereto, on insurance companies for a cash investment in a certified Kansas venture capital company in an amount equal to 25% of such taxpayer's cash investment in any such company in the taxable year in which such investment is made and the taxable years following such taxable year until the total amount of the credit is used. The amount by which that portion of the credit allowed by this section exceeds the taxpayer's liability in any one taxable year may be carried forward until the total amount of the credit is used. If the taxpayer is a corporation having an election in effect under subchapter S of the federal internal revenue code or a partnership, the credit provided by this section shall be claimed by the shareholders of such corporation or the partners of such partnership in the same manner as such shareholders or partners account for their proportionate shares of the income or loss of the corporation or partnership.
(b) The secretary of revenue shall allow credits that are attributable to not more than $50,000,000 of cash investments in certified Kansas venture capital companies and certified local seed capital pools allowable pursuant to K.S.A. 74-8401, and amendments thereto, which shall include not more than $10,000,000 for Kansas Venture Capital, Inc. The credits shall be allocated by the secretary for cash investments in certified Kansas venture capital companies in the order that completed applications for designation as Kansas venture capital companies are received by the secretary. Any certified Kansas venture capital company may apply to the secretary at any time for additional allocation of such credit based upon then committed cash investments, but priority as to such additional allocation shall be determined at the time of such subsequent application. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (c), investors in Kansas venture capital companies established after July 1, 1984, which otherwise meet the requirements specified in this act, shall be, upon certification of the Kansas venture capital company, entitled to the tax credit provided in subsection (a) in the calendar year in which the investment was made.
(c) No taxpayer shall claim a credit under this section for cash investment in Kansas Venture Capital, Inc. No Kansas venture capital company shall qualify for the tax credit allowed by Chapter 332 of the 1986 Session Laws of Kansas for investment in stock of Kansas Venture Capital, Inc.
(d) The provisions of this section, and amendments thereto, shall be applicable to cash investments made in any taxable year commencing after December 31, 1985, and prior to January 1, 1998.
(e) For tax year 2013 and all tax years thereafter, the income tax credit provided by this section shall only be available to taxpayers subject to the income tax on corporations imposed pursuant to subsection (c) of K.S.A. 79-32,110, and amendments thereto, and shall be applied only against such taxpayer's corporate income tax liability.
