View Entire Chapter
F.S. 220.19
220.19 Child care tax credits.
(1) If the credit granted under this section is not fully used in any one year because of insufficient tax liability on the part of the corporation, the unused amount may be carried forward for a period not to exceed 5 years. The carryover credit may be used in a subsequent year when the tax imposed by this chapter for that year exceeds the credit for which the corporation is eligible in that year under this section after applying the other credits and unused carryovers in the order provided by s. 220.02(8).
(2) If a corporation receives a credit for child care facility startup costs, and the facility fails to operate for at least 5 years, a pro rata share of the credit must be repaid, in accordance with the formula:

A = C x (1 - (N/60))


(a) “A” is the amount in dollars of the required repayment.
(b) “C” is the total credits taken by the corporation for child care facility startup costs.
(c) “N” is the number of months the facility was in operation.

This repayment requirement is inapplicable if the corporation goes out of business or can demonstrate to the department that its employees no longer want to have a child care facility.
