As used in this section:

(1) "Adjusted purchase price" means the amount paid for qualified equity investments multiplied by the qualified low-income community investments made by the issuer in projects located in this state as a percentage of the total amount of qualified low-income community investments made by the issuer in projects located in all states on the credit allowance date during the applicable tax year, subject to divisions (B)(1) and (2) of this section.

(2) "Applicable percentage" means zero per cent for each of the first two credit allowance dates, seven per cent for the third credit allowance date, and eight per cent for the four following credit allowance dates.

(3) "Credit allowance date" means the date, on or after January 1, 2010, a qualified equity investment is made and each of the six anniversary dates thereafter. For qualified equity investments made after October 16, 2009, but before January 1, 2010, the initial credit allowance date is January 1, 2010, and each of the six anniversary dates thereafter is on the first day of January of each year.

(4) "Qualified active low-income community business" excludes any business that derives or projects to derive fifteen per cent or more of annual revenue from the rental or sale of real property, except any business that is a special purpose entity principally owned by a principal user of that property formed solely for the purpose of renting, either directly or indirectly, or selling real property back to such principal user if such principal user does not derive fifteen per cent or more of its gross annual revenue from the rental or sale of real property.

(5) "Qualified community development entity" includes only entities:

(a) That have entered into an allocation agreement with the community development financial institutions fund of the United States department of the treasury with respect to credits authorized by section 45D of the Internal Revenue Code;

(a) Is acquired after October 16, 2009, at its original issuance solely in exchange for cash;

(b) Has at least eighty-five per cent of its cash purchase price used by the qualified community development entity to make qualified low-income community investments, provided that in the seventh year after a qualified equity investment is made, only seventy-five per cent of such cash purchase price must be used by the qualified community development entity to make qualified low-income community investments; and

(c) Is designated by the issuer as a qualified equity investment.

"Qualified equity investment" includes any equity investment that would, but for division (A)(6)(a) of this section, be a qualified equity investment in the hands of the taxpayer if such investment was a qualified equity investment in the hands of a prior holder.

(B) There is hereby allowed a nonrefundable credit against the tax imposed by section 5725.18 of the Revised Code for an insurance company holding a qualified equity investment on the credit allowance date occurring in the calendar year for which the tax is due. The credit shall equal the applicable percentage of the adjusted purchase price of qualified low-income community investments, subject to divisions (B)(1) and (2) of this section:

(1) For the purpose of calculating the amount of qualified low-income community investments held by a qualified community development entity, an investment shall be considered held by a qualified community development entity even if the investment has been sold or repaid, provided that, at any time before the seventh anniversary of the issuance of the qualified equity investment, the qualified community development entity reinvests an amount equal to the capital returned to or received or recovered by the qualified community development entity from the original investment, exclusive of any profits realized and costs incurred in the sale or repayment, in another qualified low-income community investment within twelve months of the receipt of such capital. If the qualified low-income community investment is sold or repaid after the sixth anniversary of the issuance of the qualified equity investment, the qualified low-income community investment shall be considered held by the qualified community development entity through the seventh anniversary of the qualified equity investment's issuance.

(2) The qualified low-income community investment made in this state shall equal the sum of the qualified low-income community investments in each qualified active low-income community business in this state, not to exceed two million five hundred sixty-four thousand dollars, in which the qualified community development entity invests, including such investments in any such businesses in this state related to that qualified active low-income community business through majority ownership or control.

The credit shall be claimed in the order prescribed by section 5725.98 of the Revised Code. If the amount of the credit exceeds the amount of tax otherwise due after deducting all other credits in that order, the excess may be carried forward and applied to the tax due for not more than four ensuing years.

By claiming a tax credit under this section, an insurance company waives its rights under section 5725.222 of the Revised Code with respect to the time limitation for the assessment of taxes as it relates to credits claimed that later become subject to recapture under division (E) of this section.

(C) The amount of qualified equity investments on the basis of which credits may be claimed under this section and sections 5726.54 , 5729.16 , and 5733.58 of the Revised Code shall not exceed the amount, estimated by the director of development, that would cause the total amount of credits allowed each fiscal year to exceed ten million dollars, computed without regard to the potential for taxpayers to carry tax credits forward to later years.

(D) If any amount of the federal tax credit allowed for a qualified equity investment for which a credit was received under this section is recaptured under section 45D of the Internal Revenue Code, or if the director of development services determines that an investment for which a tax credit is claimed under this section is not a qualified equity investment or that the proceeds of an investment for which a tax credit is claimed under this section are used to make qualified low-income community investments other than in a qualified active low-income community business, all or a portion of the credit received on account of that investment shall be paid by the insurance company that received the credit to the superintendent of insurance. The amount to be recovered shall be determined by the director of development services pursuant to rules adopted under division (E) of this section. The director shall certify any amount due under this division to the superintendent of insurance, and the superintendent shall notify the treasurer of state of the amount due. Upon notification, the treasurer shall invoice the insurance company for the amount due.

The amount due shall be considered to be tax due under section 5725.18 of the Revised Code, and may be collected by assessment without regard to the time limitations imposed under section 5725.222 of the Revised Code for the assessment of taxes by the superintendent. All amounts collected under this division shall be credited as revenue from the tax levied under section 5725.18 of the Revised Code.

(E) The tax credits authorized under this section and sections 5726.54 , 5729.16 , and 5733.58 of the Revised Code shall be administered by the department of development services. The director of development services, in consultation with the tax commissioner and the superintendent of insurance, pursuant to Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, shall adopt rules for the administration of this section and sections 5726.54 , 5729.16 , and 5733.58 of the Revised Code. The rules shall provide for determining the recovery of credits under division (D) of this section and under sections 5726.54 , 5729.16 , and 5733.58 of the Revised Code, including prorating the amount of the credit to be recovered on any reasonable basis, the manner in which credits may be allocated among claimants, and the amount of any application or other fees to be charged in connection with a recovery.

(F) There is hereby created in the state treasury the new markets tax credit operating fund. The director of development services is authorized to charge reasonable application and other fees in connection with the administration of tax credits authorized by this section and sections 5726.54 , 5729.16 , and 5733.58 of the Revised Code. Any such fees collected shall be credited to the fund.
