  2.  (1)  Beginning on March 29, 2013, any contribution to a pregnancy resource center made on or after January 1, 2013, shall be eligible for tax credits as provided by this section.

  (2)  For all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2007, and ending on or before December 31, 2020, a taxpayer shall be allowed to claim a tax credit against the taxpayer's state tax liability in an amount equal to fifty percent of the amount such taxpayer contributed to a pregnancy resource center.  For all tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2021, a taxpayer shall be allowed to claim a tax credit against the taxpayer's state tax liability in an amount equal to seventy percent of the amount such taxpayer contributed to a pregnancy resource center.

  4.  Except for any excess credit which is carried over pursuant to subsection 3 of this section, a taxpayer shall not be allowed to claim a tax credit unless the total amount of such taxpayer's contribution or contributions to a pregnancy resource center or centers in such taxpayer's tax year has a value of at least one hundred dollars.

  5.  The director shall determine, at least annually, which facilities in this state may be classified as pregnancy resource centers.  The director may require of a facility seeking to be classified as a pregnancy resource center whatever information which is reasonably necessary to make such a determination.  The director shall classify a facility as a pregnancy resource center if such facility meets the definition set forth in subsection 1 of this section.

  6.  The director shall establish a procedure by which a taxpayer can determine if a facility has been classified as a pregnancy resource center.  Pregnancy resource centers shall be permitted to decline a contribution from a taxpayer.  The cumulative amount of tax credits which may be claimed by all the taxpayers contributing to pregnancy resource centers in any one fiscal year shall not exceed two million dollars for all fiscal years ending on or before June 30, 2014, and two million five hundred thousand dollars for all fiscal years beginning on or after July 1, 2014, and ending on or before June 30, 2019, and three million five hundred thousand dollars for all fiscal years beginning on or after July 1, 2019, and ending on or before June 30, 2021.  For all fiscal years beginning on or after July 1, 2021, there shall be no limit imposed on the cumulative amount of tax credits that may be claimed by all taxpayers contributing to pregnancy resource centers under the provisions of this section.  Tax credits shall be issued in the order contributions are received.  If the amount of tax credits redeemed in a fiscal year is less than the cumulative amount authorized under this subsection, the difference shall be carried over to a subsequent fiscal year or years and shall be added to the cumulative amount of tax credits that may be authorized in that fiscal year or years.

  7.  For all fiscal years ending on or before June 30, 2021, the director shall establish a procedure by which, from the beginning of the fiscal year until some point in time later in the fiscal year to be determined by the director, the cumulative amount of tax credits are equally apportioned among all facilities classified as pregnancy resource centers.  If a pregnancy resource center fails to use all, or some percentage to be determined by the director, of its apportioned tax credits during this predetermined period of time, the director may reapportion these unused tax credits to those pregnancy resource centers that have used all, or some percentage to be determined by the director, of their apportioned tax credits during this predetermined period of time.  The director may establish more than one period of time and reapportion more than once during each fiscal year.  To the maximum extent possible, the director shall establish the procedure described in this subsection in such a manner as to ensure that taxpayers can claim all the tax credits possible up to the cumulative amount of tax credits available for the fiscal year.

  8.  Each pregnancy resource center shall provide information to the director concerning the identity of each taxpayer making a contribution to the pregnancy resource center who is claiming a tax credit pursuant to this section and the amount of the contribution.  The director shall provide the information to the director of revenue.  The director shall be subject to the confidentiality and penalty provisions of section 32.057 relating to the disclosure of tax information.
