Summary: This bill provides a new tax credit for the domestic production of rare earth magnets. The magnets must be manufactured or produced in the ordinary course of the taxpayer's trade or business, and the credit is disallowed if any rare earth material component used to produce such magnets is produced in a non-allied foreign nation.
The bill defines a rare earth magnet as a permanent magnet composed of an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron, or an alloy of samarium and cobalt, which may also include other material.
