WVC 11 - 13 N- 4 §11-13N-4. Amount of credit allowed; expiration of the credit.
(a) Credit allowable. -- The amount of annual credit allowable under this article to an eligible taxpayer is two hundred fifty dollars for each new job at a new value-added steel product manufacturing facility located in this state, or at a new value-added steel product line of an existing manufacturing facility located in this state, that is filled by a full-time employee of the eligible taxpayer during the taxable year, subject to the following:

(1) When the new value-added steel product manufacturing facility, or the new steel product line of an existing value-added steel product manufacturing facility, is in operation for less than twelve months of the taxable year in which it is placed in service, the credit allowed by subsection (a) of this section shall be prorated by the ratio that the number of months in the taxpayer's taxable year during which the new value-added steel products facility, or the new products line of an existing value-added steel product manufacturing facility, was in service bears to twelve.

(2) When the eligible taxpayer stops manufacturing value-added steel products at the new value-added steel product manufacturing facility, or at the new steel product line of an existing value-added steel product manufacturing facility, during the taxable year, the credit allowed by subsection (a) of this section shall be prorated by the ratio that the number of months in the taxpayer's taxable year during which the new value-added steel products facility, or the new products line of an existing value-added steel product manufacturing facility, was in operation manufacturing value-added steel product bears to twelve.

(3) When determining the number of full-time employees who fill new jobs at the new value-added steel product manufacturing facility located in this state, or who fill new jobs at a new value-added steel product line of an existing manufacturing facility located in this state, the eligible taxpayer may not include any position occupied by any employee of the eligible taxpayer, or of a related person, which existed in this state as of the first day of the second calendar month preceding the calendar month in which the new value-added steel product manufacturing facility, or a new value-added steel product line at an existing value-added steel products manufacturing facility first becomes operational, whether the positions are filled by permanent, seasonal, temporary or part-time employees.

(4) The amount of credit allowable each taxable year is calculated annually based upon the number of new jobs filled by full-time employees during the taxable year: Provided, That the credit provided for in this article may only be taken one time for each new job created, and once claimed in a tax year for a new job the credit may not be claimed in a subsequent year for that position.

(b) Expiration of credit. -- This credit expires on the first day of July, two thousand two. When the first day of July in the year two thousand two falls during the taxable year of the eligible taxpayer, the amount of credit allowable for that taxable year shall be limited to that portion of the amount of credit that would have been allowable had the credit not expired multiplied by the ratio of the number of months during taxpayers taxable year ending before the first day of July, two thousand two, bears to twelve.
