(1) Is disposed of prior to the end of its useful life, as determined under section five of this article; or
(2) Ceases to be used in an industrial facility of the taxpayer in this state prior to the end of its useful life, as determined under section five of this article, then the unused portion of the credit allowed for such property is forfeited for the taxable year and all ensuing years. Except when the property is damaged or destroyed by fire, flood, storm or other casualty, or is stolen, the taxpayer shall redetermine the amount of credit allowed in all earlier years by reducing the applicable percentage of cost of the property allowed under section five of this article, to correspond with the percentage of cost allowable for the period of time that the property was actually used in manufacturing activity as part of an industrial facility of the taxpayer. The taxpayer must then file a reconciliation statement with its annual return filed under article twenty-three of this chapter, for the year in which the forfeiture occurs and pay any additional taxes owed due to reduction of the amount of credit allowable for the earlier years, plus interest and any applicable penalties.
