AN ACT to amend the tax law, in relation to extending the biofuel credit
  and to amend the general municipal law, in relation to  requiring  all
  municipalities  to use biofuels for any purpose which requires the use
  of fuel


  Section 1. Subdivision (a) of section 28 of the tax law, as amended by
section  1  of  part  K of chapter 59 of the laws of 2012, is amended to
read as follows:
  (a) General. A taxpayer subject to tax under article nine,  nine-A  or
twenty-two  of  this  chapter shall be allowed a credit against such tax
pursuant to  the  provisions  referenced  in  subdivision  (d)  of  this
section. The credit (or pro rata share of earned credit in the case of a
partnership)  for  each gallon of biofuel produced at a biofuel plant on
or after January first, two thousand six shall equal fifteen  cents  per
gallon after the production of the first forty thousand gallons per year
presented  to  market.  The credit under this section shall be capped at
two and one-half million dollars per taxpayer per taxable year for up to
no more than [four] NINE consecutive taxable years per biofuel plant. If
the taxpayer is a partner in a partnership or shareholder of a New  York
S  corporation,  then the cap imposed by the preceding sentence shall be
applied at the entity level, so that the aggregate credit allowed to all
the partners or shareholders of each such entity  in  the  taxable  year
does not exceed two and one-half million dollars. The tax credit allowed
pursuant  to  this section shall apply to taxable years beginning before
January first, two thousand twenty.
