        Amends the Illinois Income Tax Act.  Creates an income tax credit      
   for individuals in an amount equal to 25% of  unreimbursed,  medically      
   necessary  expenses  incurred in caring, in the individual's home, for      
   an elderly parent who has been diagnosed by a  licensed  physician  as      
   being  unable to live alone.  Provides that the taxpayer shall provide      
   the Department of Revenue, upon request,  with  certification  from  a
