    (C)    To receive the credit the taxpayer shall claim the credit on his income tax or withholding return in a manner prescribed by the department. The department may require any information that it determines is necessary for the calculation of the credit provided by this section."

SECTION    2.    This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor and applies to taxpayers who encumbered their property with a perpetual recreational trail easement after 2015.
