The credit is also allowed in any instance where there is a valid and enforceable lease contract between the homeowner and an individual with a physical disability that requires, or will require, accessible and barrier-free design elements if the individual inhabits any portion of the dwelling. The credit is the lesser of $5,000 or the cost of the construction or renovation. The credit is earned in and may be claimed on the return for the taxable year in which the construction or renovation is completed. Only one credit may be granted per home. If the home is co-owned in indivision by two or more taxpayers who qualify for and claim a homestead exemption on the dwelling, the credit allowed to each taxpayer shall be limited to the pro-rata ownership interest of the taxpayers. The total amount of credits granted in any taxable year is limited to $500,000 and the credits will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Any taxpayer who claims the credit in a calendar year in which the $500,000 annual cap has been exceeded may claim the credit on their income tax return in the next calendar year and the claim will have priority over other claims after the date the original claim was made. In order to qualify for the credit, Requirement #1 and 2 below must be met as well as either Requirement #3 or 4: Requirement #1 The required elements must be included in the construction of a new one or two-family dwelling or in the renovation of an existing dwelling that is owned by the taxpayer.

Form R-1089 is a Louisiana Individual Income Tax form. States often have dozens of even hundreds of various tax credits, which, unlike deductions, provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction of tax liability. Some common tax credits apply to many taxpayers, while others only apply to extremely specific situations. In most cases, you will have to provide evidence to show that you are eligible for the tax credit, and calculate the amount of the credit to which you are entitled.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
