The amount of the tax credit that can be claimed is 50% of either:
- The difference in the cost of the services set forth in the medicaid and medicare fee schedules in effect at the time the services were rendered; or
- For any services without a medicare fee schedule equivalent, the difference between the amounts paid for the services under the medicaid fee schedule in effect at the time the services were rendered and the fee amounts published in the most recent Colorado-specific cost-of-care or compensation survey conducted by an entity identified by rule of the executive director of the department of revenue (department).
If the amount of the credit allowed exceeds the amount of the income tax otherwise due, the bill prohibits the balance from either being refunded or carried forward and applied against the income tax due in any succeeding income tax years.
The department is required to include information regarding the tax credit in its 'State Measurement for Accountable, Responsive, and Transparent (SMART) Government Act' presentation in the legislative interim immediately prior to the repeal of the credit.
