    ($3,000) for an eligible firefighter or an eligible
    rescue squad worker. In the case of a married
    couple filing a joint return, each spouse may
    qualify separately for the deduction allowed under
    this subdivision. In order to claim the deduction
    allowed under this subdivision, the taxpayer must
    submit with the tax return any documentation
    required by the Secretary. An individual may not
    claim a deduction as both an eligible firefighter
    and as an eligible rescue squad worker in a single
    taxable year.
    The following definitions apply in this
    subdivision:
    a. Eligible firefighter. - A member of a
    bona fide fire department who attended at
    least 36 hours of fire department drills and
    meetings during the taxable year.

    member of a bona fide rescue or emergency
    medical services squad who attended at least
    36 hours of rescue squad training and meetings
    during the taxable year."

    years beginning on or after January 1, 2003.
