    • Research and Development Tax Credit Businesses that invest in research and development in Maryland may be entitled to a tax credit. The total credits for all businesses may not exceed $6 million a year. This credit is available for tax years beginning after December 31, 1999, but before January 1, 2020. The credit may be taken against corporate income tax or personal income tax. Sole proprietorships, corporations and pass-through entities, such as partnerships, subchapter S corporations, limited liability companies and business trusts may claim the tax credit. To qualify for the credit: The business must invest in research and development activities in Maryland during the tax year. The business must also submit an application for the credit to the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) by September 15 of the year following the tax year in which the Maryland qualified expenses were incurred. The Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development will certify the amount of credit available to the business by December 15. How the credit is calculated: There are two types of research and development tax credits available to businesses: Basic Research and Development Credit: 3% of the lesser of its Maryland qualified research and development expenses incurred during the tax year or the Maryland base amount, subject to statutory limits on the total amount of credits to all firms; Growth Research and Development Credit: 10% of the Maryland qualified research and development expenses incurred during the year that exceeds the Maryland base amount, subject to statutory limits on the total amount of credits to all firms. The Maryland base amount is the average annual gross receipts of the business for the four preceding tax years multiplied by the Maryland base percentage. For most businesses, the Maryland base percentage is the percentage that Maryland research and development expenses for the preceding four tax years is of total gross receipts for those years. If the credit allowed in any tax year exceeds the State income tax for that tax year, a taxpayer may apply the excess as a credit against the State income tax for succeeding tax year until the earlier of: The full amount of the excess is used; The expiration of the 7th tax year in which the Maryland qualified research and development expense was incurred.
    • Documentation required: The certification from DBED must be attached to Form 500CR. Form 500CR, must be submitted along with Form 500X, the Maryland Amended Corporation Income Tax Return, or Form 502X, Maryland Amended Individual Income Tax Return. For Pass-Through Entities, Form 500 CR must be submitted with Form 510 and 510 Schedule K-1, which separately states each member's share of the credit.
