is carried first to the earliest of the taxable years to which

to be claimed by all taxpayers under paragraph (e) exceeds the

are less than the maximum amount available for credits, the
commissioner shall notify eligible taxpayers that they may file
returns using the full credit calculated under the table in

available for credits, the commissioner shall determine for each
taxpayer a prorated credit amount and, not later than February
15, inform the taxpayer of that amount.
