Each resident individual taxpayer who files an individual income tax return and who is not eligible to be claimed as a dependent by another taxpayer for Hawaii income tax purposes, may claim a Credit of 6 percent of the qualified nursing facilities expenses paid to a nursing facility during the taxable year.

The qualified nursing facility expenses are amounts actually paid by the taxpayer for services provided to the taxpayer or a qualified dependent of the taxpayer to a nursing facility licensed under Sections 321-9 and 321-11, HRS, and any intermediate care facility for mentally retarded persons under Sections 321-9 and 321-11, HRS. The qualifying nursing facility must be subject to the imposition and payment of the tax imposed by Chapter 346E, HRS.
