     8  which  is specified in an agreement between the grantee and the employer
     9  and includes both work experience and training, formalized in an outline
    10  defining each training component and outcomes of the training process.
    11    (c) On-the-job training expenditures. On-the-job training expenditures
    12  shall include expenditures for the  purchase  of  either  commercial  or

    19  on-the-job  training expenditures incurred by an employer. The amount of
    20  credit shall not exceed three hundred dollars per employee for whom such
    21  training has been provided during the taxable year in which such expend-
    22  itures were made.
    23    (e) Carryover. The credit allowed under this subdivision for any taxa-
    24  ble year shall not reduce the tax due for such year  to  less  than  the

    38  be deducted from the taxpayer's tax for such year or years.
    39    § 4. This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to taxable
    40  years  beginning  on  and after the first of January next succeeding the
