Request for final approval; form; approval; when; denial; appeal; credit; issuance of certificates; fee; credit carried forward.

(1) Within twelve months after the date on which the historically significant real property is placed in service, a person whose application was approved under section 77-2905 shall file a request for final approval containing all required information with the officer on a form prescribed by the officer and shall include a fee established by the officer pursuant to section 77-2907. The officer shall then determine whether the work substantially conforms to the application approved under section 77-2905. If the work substantially conforms and no other significant improvements have been made to the historically significant real property that do not substantially comply with the standards, the officer shall approve the request for final approval and refer the application to the department to determine the amount of eligible expenditures, calculate the amount of the credit, and issue a certificate to the person evidencing the credit. If the work does not substantially conform to the approved application or if other significant improvements have been made to the historically significant real property that do not substantially comply with the standards, the officer shall deny the request for final approval and provide the person with a written explanation of the decision. The officer shall make a determination on the request for final approval in writing within thirty days after the filing of the request. If the officer does not make a determination within thirty days after the filing of the request, the request shall be deemed approved and the person may petition the department directly to determine the amount of eligible expenditures, calculate the amount of the credit, and issue a certificate evidencing the credit. Any denial of a request for final approval by the officer pursuant to this section may be appealed, and the appeal shall be in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act.

(2) The department shall divide the credit and issue multiple certificates to a person who qualifies for the credit upon reasonable request.

(3) In calculating the amount of the credits to be issued pursuant to this section, the department may issue credits in an amount that differs from the amount of credits allocated by the officer under section 77-2905 if such credits are supported by eligible expenditures as determined by the department, except that the department shall not issue credits in an amount exceeding one hundred ten percent of the amount of credits allocated by the officer under section 77-2905. If the amount of credits to be issued under this section is more than the amount of credits allocated by the officer pursuant to section 77-2905, the department shall notify the officer of the difference and such amount shall be subtracted from the annual amount available for allocation under section 77-2905. If the amount of credits to be issued under this section is less than the amount of credits allocated by the officer pursuant to section 77-2905, the department shall notify the officer of the difference and such amount shall be added to the annual amount available for allocation under section 77-2905.

(4) The department shall not issue any certificates for credits under this section until the recipient of the credit has paid to the department a fee equal to one-quarter of one percent of the credit amount. The department shall remit such fees to the State Treasurer for credit to the Civic and Community Center Financing Fund.

(5) If the recipient of the credit is (a) a corporation having an election in effect under subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, (b) a partnership, or (c) a limited liability company, the credit may be claimed by the shareholders of the corporation, the partners of the partnership, or the members of the limited liability company in the same manner as those shareholders, partners, or members account for their proportionate shares of the income or losses of the corporation, partnership, or limited liability company, or as provided in the bylaws or other executed agreement of the corporation, partnership, or limited liability company. Credits granted to a partnership, a limited liability company taxed as a partnership, or other multiple owners of property shall be passed through to the partners, members, or owners, respectively, on a pro rata basis or pursuant to an executed agreement among the partners, members, or owners documenting any alternate distribution method.

(6) Subject to section 77-2912, any credit amount that is unused may be carried forward to subsequent tax years until fully utilized.

(7) Credits allowed under this section may be claimed for taxable years beginning or deemed to begin on or after January 1, 2015, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
