Such a waiver must be made in writing, and submits the decision with an adequate reasoning to the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, the House and Senate Committees on Rules, and the House and Senate Committees on Ways and Means.

(2) A taxpayer that incurs qualified water-dependent facility expenditures may be allowed a credit, to be computed as hereinafter provided, against the tax imposed by this chapter. The credit shall be equal to a percentage, not to exceed twenty-five percent, of the qualified water-dependent facility expenditures made by the taxpayer with respect to a qualified water-dependent facility which has received final certification and has been placed in service as provided for in this section. The Secretary shall administer and determine eligibility for the Massachusetts maritime commercial development tax credit and allocate the credit in accordance with this section; but, the Secretary may impose a fee for the processing of applications for the certification of any water-dependent facility under the provisions of this section.

The transferee shall use the credit in the year it is transferred. If the credit allowable for any taxable year exceeds the transferee's tax liability for that tax year, the transferee may carry forward and apply in any subsequent taxable year, the portion, as reduced from year to year, of those credits which exceed the tax for the taxable year; but, the carryover period shall not exceed 5 taxable years after the close of the taxable year during which the qualified water-dependent facility received final certification and was placed in service as provided for in this section.

(f) The Secretary shall annually, not later than September 1 of each year, file a report with the House and Senate Committees on Ways and Means, the chairs of the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Businesses, and the chairs of the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies, identifying the total amount of tax credits claimed pursuant to this subsection and the total amount of tax credits transferred, sold, or assigned hereunder for the preceding fiscal year.
