A taxpayer must recapture a percentage of the credit allowed for the entire period of eligibility if an investment is made in an insurance company or in a company that provides services to an insurance business if:
The number of new employees on account of which a taxpayer claimed the credit decreases to less than 25% of its total work force for more than 60 days during any of the taxable years for which the credit is claimed;
Those employees are not replaced by other employees who have not been shifted from an existing location of the subject insurance business in Connecticut; and
The insurance business in which the investment was made has relocated to a location outside Connecticut.

The taxpayer must recapture a percentage of the credit that is related to an investment in a company that meets the requirements provided above as follows:
