Prev Article 32. - INCOME TAXNext


79-32,203. Tax credits for expenditures related to nongame and endangered species. (a) There shall be allowed two types of credits against the tax liability of a taxpayer imposed under the Kansas income tax act related to real property that is both:

(1) Designated by the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism pursuant to the nongame and endangered species conservation act as critical habitat for a threatened or endangered species or certified by the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism as land known to support populations of species in need of conservation; and

(2) included in management activities as part of a recovery plan, or an agreement identified in subsection (b) of K.S.A. 32-962, and amendments thereto, as approved by the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism for a species listed as threatened, endangered or in need of conservation pursuant to the nongame and endangered species conservation act.

(b) There shall be allowed as an annual credit against the tax liability of a taxpayer imposed an amount equal to the total amount paid by the taxpayer during the taxable year for ad valorem taxes and assessments that are imposed by the state or by any political or taxing subdivision of the state or related to real property described in subsection (a) for each year that the management activities specified in the recovery plan or agreement described in subsection (a)(2) remain in effect and apply to such real property. The credit allowed by this subsection shall not exceed the amount of tax imposed under the Kansas income tax act reduced by the sum of any other credits allowable pursuant to law.

(c) There shall be allowed as a credit against the tax liability of a taxpayer imposed under the Kansas income tax act an amount equal to costs incurred by the taxpayer for habitat management or construction and maintenance of improvements on real property described in subsection (a). Such costs shall be for management or improvements in accordance with management activities as a part of a recovery plan or conservation agreement identified in subsection (b) of K.S.A. 32-962, and amendments thereto, as approved by the secretary of wildlife, parks and tourism, for a species listed as threatened, endangered or in need of conservation pursuant to the nongame and endangered species conservation act. The tax credit allowed by this subsection shall be deducted from the taxpayer's income tax liability for the taxable year in which the expenditures are made by the taxpayer. If the amount of such tax credit exceeds the taxpayer's income tax liability for such taxable year, the taxpayer may elect, at the time of filing the initial return upon which the credit is claimed, to: (1) Carry over the amount thereof that exceeds such tax liability for deduction from the taxpayer's income tax liability in the next succeeding taxable year or years until the total amount of the tax credit has been deducted from tax liability; or (2) receive reimbursement of the amount thereof that exceeds such tax liability, to be paid from amounts appropriated to the secretary of revenue for that purpose upon warrants of the director of accounts and reports issued pursuant to vouchers approved by the secretary or a person or persons designated by the secretary.

(d) The provisions of this section shall be applicable to all taxable years commencing after December 31, 1997, but before January 1, 2003.
