Delaware Expands Research Tax Credit

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - Small business owners in Delaware are eligible for an expanded tax credit with the signing of a new law by Gov. Jack Markell.
    
Markell on Tuesday signed legislation doubling the state research and development tax credit for smaller businesses while maintaining the annual cap of $5 million for the credit as a whole.
    
Currently, all businesses are entitled to a state tax credit equal to half of the corresponding federal tax credit for research and development in Delaware. Under the new law, businesses with less than $20 million average annual gross receipts for the most recent four years can get a state tax credit equal to the entire corresponding federal credit.
    
Markell noted that only about 2 percent of state R&D tax credits currently go to small companies and start-ups.
