  (3)  "State tax liability", in the case of a business taxpayer, any liability incurred by such taxpayer pursuant to the provisions of chapter 143, chapter 147, chapter 148, and chapter 153, exclusive of the provisions relating to the withholding of tax as provided for in sections 143.191 to 143.265 and related provisions, and in the case of an individual taxpayer, any liability incurred by such taxpayer pursuant to the provisions of chapter 143;

  (4)  "Taxpayer", a person, firm, a partner in a firm, corporation or a shareholder in an S corporation doing business in the state of Missouri and subject to the state income tax imposed by the provisions of chapter 143, or a corporation subject to the annual corporation franchise tax imposed by the provisions of chapter 147, including any charitable organization which is exempt from federal income tax and whose Missouri unrelated business taxable income, if any, would be subject to the state income tax imposed under chapter 143, or an insurance company paying an annual tax on its gross premium receipts in this state, or other financial institution paying taxes to the state of Missouri or any political subdivision of this state pursuant to the provisions of chapter 148, or an express company which pays an annual tax on its gross receipts in this state pursuant to chapter 153, or an individual subject to the state income tax imposed by the provisions of chapter 143.

  2.  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 shelter for victims of domestic violence.

  3.  The amount of the tax credit claimed shall not exceed the amount of the taxpayer's state tax liability for the taxable year that the credit is claimed, and such taxpayer shall not be allowed to claim a tax credit in excess of fifty thousand dollars per taxable year.  However, any tax credit that cannot be claimed in the taxable year the contribution was made may be carried over to the next four succeeding taxable years until the full credit has been claimed.

  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 shelter or shelters for victims of domestic violence in such taxpayer's taxable year has a value of at least one hundred dollars.

  5.  The director of the department of social services shall determine, at least annually, which facilities in this state may be classified as shelters for victims of domestic violence.  The director of the department of social services may require of a facility seeking to be classified as a shelter for victims of domestic violence whatever information is reasonably necessary to make such a determination.  The director of the department of social services shall classify a facility as a shelter for victims of domestic violence if such facility meets the definition set forth in subsection 1 of this section.

  6.  The director of the department of social services shall establish a procedure by which a taxpayer can determine if a facility has been classified as a shelter for victims of domestic violence, and by which such taxpayer can then contribute to such shelter for victims of domestic violence and claim a tax credit.  Shelters for victims of domestic violence 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 shelters for victims of domestic violence in any one fiscal year shall not exceed two million dollars.

  7.  The director of the department of social services 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 of the department of social services, the cumulative amount of tax credits are equally apportioned among all facilities classified as shelters for victims of domestic violence.  If a shelter for victims of domestic violence fails to use all, or some percentage to be determined by the director of the department of social services, of its apportioned tax credits during this predetermined period of time, the director of the department of social services may reapportion these unused tax credits to those shelters for victims of domestic violence that have used all, or some percentage to be determined by the director of the department of social services, of their apportioned tax credits during this predetermined period of time.  The director of the department of social services may establish more than one period of time and reapportion more than once during each fiscal year.  To the maximum extent possible, the director of the department of social services 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.  This section shall become effective January 1, 2000, and shall apply to all tax years after December 31, 1999.
