(B) There is allowed a credit against the tax imposed by section 5725.18 of the Revised Code for an insurance company subject to that tax that is a certificate owner of a rehabilitation tax credit certificate issued under section 149.311 of the Revised Code. The credit shall equal twenty-five per cent of the dollar amount indicated on the certificate, but the amount of the credit allowed for any company for any year shall not exceed five million dollars.

The company may carry forward any balance of the credit in excess of the amount claimed in that year for not more than five ensuing years, and shall deduct any amount claimed in any such year from the amount claimed in an ensuing year.
(C) An insurance company claiming a credit under this section shall retain the rehabilitation tax credit certificate for four years following the end of the year in which the credit was claimed, and shall make the certificate available for inspection by the tax commissioner upon the request of the tax commissioner during that period.
