    (a) Definitions.

Upon making a designation, the Secretary shall send a written notice to the Commissioner of Taxes identifying the designated counties.

    (b) A credit against the income tax liability is available as follows:

The credit shall be available to the employer in any year the counties qualify and for one year after a qualification ends. As used in this section, "finished wood products" means wood products that are manufactured into the form in which they are offered for sale to consumers.

    (2) The credit, either alone or in combination with any other credit allowed by this chapter, shall not reduce the income tax liability of the employer by more than 80 percent.

    (3) The recapture of development incentives established in 3 V.S.A. chapter 47, subchapter 6 shall apply to the tax credits in this section, except that the provisions of subsection 2512(c) of that title shall not apply to a business relocation outside the designated counties.
