The Illinois Income Tax Act is amended by 5 adding Section 213 as follows: 6 (35 ILCS 5/213 new) 7 Sec. 213. Tax credit for long term care insurance 8 premiums. Beginning with taxable years ending on or after 9 December 31, 2001, an individual taxpayer is entitled to a 10 credit against the tax imposed by subsections (a) and (b) of 11 Section 201 in an amount equal to 15% of the premium costs 12 paid by the taxpayer during the taxable year for a qualified 13 long term care insurance contract as defined by Section 7702B 14 of the Internal Revenue Code that offers coverage to either 15 the individual or the individual's spouse, parent, or 16 dependent as defined in Section 152 of the Internal Revenue 17 Code. The credit allowed under this Section may not exceed 18 $200 for each qualified long term care policy or the amount 19 of the taxpayer's liability under this Act, whichever is 20 less. A taxpayer is not entitled to the credit with respect 21 to amounts expended for the same qualified long term care 22 insurance contract that are claimed by another taxpayer. If 23 the amount of the credit exceeds the taxpayer's liability 24 under this Act for the year, then the excess may not be 25 carried forward to apply to the taxpayer's liability for the 26 succeeding year. The provisions of Section 250 do not apply 27 to the credit under this Section. 28 Section 99. Effective date. This Act takes effect on 29 January 1, 2002.
