Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

SECTION 1.Article 25, Chapter 6, Title 12 of the S.C. Code is amended by adding:

Section 12-6-3595.There is allowed a tax credit to any resident taxpayer that claims the federal tax credit for qualified adoption expenses related to a domestic adoption. This credit may be claimed in the year in which the federal credit is earned, regardless of the year in which the federal credit is first claimed, and may be carried forward for the next five tax years. The credit is equal to one hundred percent of the federal credit earned; however, regardless of the year in which this credit is claimed, for each child adopted, the credit may not exceed five thousand dollars cumulatively for all tax years. The taxpayer must provide proof of eligibility, including the adoption being domestic, and amount of the federal credit as well as any other documentation the department requires.
