B.  The credit provided for in subsection A of this section shall be thirty percent (30%) of the cash amount invested of a qualified investment in qualified rural small business capital companies which is subsequently invested in an Oklahoma rural small business venture by the qualified rural small business capital company and may only be claimed for a taxable year during which the qualified rural small business capital company invests funds makes the qualified investment in an Oklahoma rural small business venture and the credit shall be allowed for the amount of funds invested in an Oklahoma rural small business venture if the funds are used in pursuit of a legitimate business purpose of the Oklahoma rural small business venture consistent with its organizational instrument, bylaws or other agreement responsible for the governance of the rural small business venture.  The qualified rural small business capital company shall issue such reports as the Oklahoma Tax Commission may require attributing the source of funds of each qualified investment it makes in an Oklahoma rural small business venture.  If the tax credit exceeds the amount of taxes due or if there are no state taxes due of the taxpayer, the amount of the claim not used as an offset against the taxes of a taxable year may be carried forward for a period not to exceed ten (10) three (3) taxable years.

C.  No taxpayer may claim the credit provided for in this section for qualified investments in qualified rural small business capital companies made prior to January 1, 2001.

E.  No financial lending institution shall be eligible to claim the credit provided for in this section except with respect to amounts invested qualified investments in a qualified rural small business capital company.

F.  No taxpayer may claim the credit authorized by this section for the same invested qualified investment amount for which any credit is claimed pursuant to either Section 2357.62 or 2357.63 of this title.

G.  If a pass-through entity is entitled to a credit under this section, the pass-through entity shall allocate such credit to one or more of the shareholders, partners or members of the pass-through entity; provided, the total of all credits allocated shall not exceed the amount of the credit to which the pass-through entity is entitled.  The credit may only be claimed for funds borrowed by the pass-through entity to make a qualified investment if a shareholder, partner or member to whom the credit is allocated has a legal obligation to repay the borrowed funds but the allocation may not exceed such shareholder's, partner's or member's pro-rata equity share of the pass-through entity even if the taxpayer's legal obligation to repay the borrowed funds is in excess of such amount. For purposes of this act, "pass-through entity" means a corporation that for the applicable tax years is treated as an S corporation under the Internal Revenue Code, general partnership, limited partnership, limited liability partnership, trust, or limited liability company that for the applicable tax year is not taxed as a corporation for federal income tax purposes.
