There is hereby allowed a nonrefundable credit against the tax imposed by section 5747.02 of the Revised Code for a taxpayer who is an "eligible individual" as defined in section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code. The credit shall equal five per cent of the credit allowed on the taxpayer's federal income tax return pursuant to section 32 of the Internal Revenue Code for taxable years beginning in 2013, and ten per cent of the federal credit allowed for taxable years beginning in or after 2014. If the Ohio adjusted gross income of the taxpayer, or the taxpayer and the taxpayer's spouse if the taxpayer and the taxpayer's spouse file a joint return under section 5747.08 of the Revised Code, less applicable exemptions under section 5747.025 of the Revised Code, exceeds twenty thousand dollars, the credit authorized by this section shall not exceed fifty per cent of the amount of tax otherwise due under section 5747.02 of the Revised Code after deducting any other nonrefundable credits that precede the credit allowed under this section in the order prescribed by section 5747.98 of the Revised Code except for the joint filing credit authorized under division (G) of section 5747.05 of the Revised Code. In all other cases, the credit authorized by this section shall not exceed the amount of tax otherwise due under section 5747.02 of the Revised Code after deducting any other nonrefundable credits that precede the credit allowed under this section in the order prescribed by section 5747.98 of the Revised Code.

The credit shall be claimed in the order prescribed by section 5747.98 of the Revised Code.
