That credit shall be equal in amount to the lesser of:

(2) The portion of the tax actually paid that the financial organization would have paid if the rate of tax imposed by this article is applied to the tax base determined under the law of such other state.

(b) Any additional payments of such tax to other states, or to political subdivisions thereof, by a financial organization described in this section, and any refunds of such taxes, made or received by such financial organization with respect to the taxable year, but after the due date of the annual return required by this article for the taxable year, including any extensions, shall likewise be accounted for in the taxable year in which such additional payment is made or such refund is received by the financial organization.

(c) For tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2009, the provisions of this section are null and void and of no force or effect.
