DATE ISSUED: July 1, 2008
Effective July 1, 2008, the Capital Investment Tax Credit program is amended to include new solar panel manufacturing facilities as "qualifying projects" under section 220.191(1)(h), Florida Statutes. Under this new provision, a business that establishes a qualifying project that includes locating a new solar panel manufacturing facility in this state, and generates a minimum of 400 new jobs, within six months after beginning operations, may now qualify for the Capital Investment Tax Credit.
In addition, a qualifying business may assign or transfer the annual credit, or any portion thereof, granted under this section to any other business. The business receiving the transferred or assigned credit may use the credit only in the year received, and may not carry the credit forward or backward. The Department of Revenue will adopt rules and forms necessary to administer the transfer of the tax credit.
