(a) the amount of tax credit available for current and each preceding credit year;

(b) the amount of tax credit that was available for each tax year and transferred during the tax year; and

(c) the carryover amount per credit year.

(2) Tax credits are used on a "first-in, first-out" basis.

(3) Tax years of less than 12 months count as one tax year.

(4) The carryover amount of media production tax credit is any amount in excess of income tax liability after deduction of all other nonrefundable tax credits, including the media postproduction tax credit.

(5) Owners of a pass-through entity may claim the tax credit in the tax year they include their distributive share of income, loss, deduction, or tax credit reported on the Montana Schedule K-1.
