of chapter 62 of the laws of 2006, is renumbered section 38-a.
  S 2. Subdivisions (a) and (b) of section 38-a of the tax law, subdivi-
sion  (a) as amended by section 1 of part K of chapter 59 of the laws of
2012, subdivision (b) as added by section 1 of part X of chapter  62  of
the laws of 2006, such section as renumbered by section one of this act,
are amended to read as follows:
  (a)  General.  A taxpayer subject to tax under article nine, nine-A or

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
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 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.
  (b) Definitions. For the purpose of this section, the following  terms
shall have the following meanings:
