A. An individual may claim an exemption in an amount equal to the amount included in adjusted gross income pursuant to Section 86 of the Internal Revenue Code, as that section may be amended or renumbered, of income includable except for this exemption in net income; provided that the individual's adjusted gross income shall not exceed the following amounts, except as provided in Subsection B of this section:
[A.] (1) seventy-five thousand dollars ($75,000) for married individuals filing separate returns;
[B.] (2) one hundred fifty thousand dollars ($150,000) for heads of household, surviving spouses and married individuals filing joint returns; and

taxable year, the amounts of adjusted gross income provided in Subsection A of this section shall be adjusted to account for inflation. The department shall make the adjustment by multiplying each amount of modified gross income by a fraction, the numerator of which is the consumer price index ending during the prior taxable year and the denominator of which is the consumer price index ending in tax year 2023. The result of the multiplication shall be rounded down to the nearest one hundred dollars ($100), except that if the result would be an amount less than the corresponding amount for the preceding taxable year, then no adjustment shall be made."
SECTION 2. APPLICABILITY.--The provisions of this act apply to taxable years beginning on or after January 1, 2023.
