          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-

     1    Section 1. Paragraph 1 of subsection (c-1) of section 606 of  the  tax
     2  law,  as  amended  by  section  1 of part P of chapter 59 of the laws of
     3  2018, is amended to read as follows:
     4    (1) A resident taxpayer shall be allowed a credit as  provided  herein
     5  equal to the greater of one hundred dollars times the number of qualify-
     6  ing  children  of the taxpayer or the applicable percentage of the child
     7  tax credit allowed the taxpayer under section twenty-four of the  inter-
     8  nal  revenue  code  for the same taxable year for each qualifying child.
     9  Provided, however, in the case of  a  taxpayer  whose  federal  adjusted
    10  gross  income  exceeds  the  applicable  threshold  amount  set forth by
    11  section 24(b)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code, the credit shall only  be
    12  equal  to  the applicable percentage of the child tax credit allowed the
    13  taxpayer under section 24 of the Internal Revenue Code for each qualify-
    14  ing child. For the purposes of this subsection, a qualifying child shall
    15  be a child who meets the definition of  qualified  child  under  section
    16  24(c)  of the internal revenue code [and is at least four years of age].
    17  The applicable percentage shall be  thirty-three  percent  or  sixty-six
    18  percent  for children under age four beginning in taxable year 2020. For
    19  purposes of this subsection, any reference to section 24 of the Internal
    20  Revenue Code shall be a reference to such section as  it  existed  imme-
    21  diately prior to the enactment of Public Law 115-97.
    22    § 2. This act shall take effect April 1, 2020.
