R & D Tax Credits & Incentives


R & D Tax Credits

The Research & Development Tax Credit Program allows credits against a taxpayer's Arkansas state income tax for making certain qualified research expenditures as well as certain donations or sales below cost of new machinery and equipment to a qualified research program.


R & D Tax Incentives

Tax credits are intended to provide incentives for university-based research, in-house research of several kinds, and research and development in start-up, technology-based enterprises. It is important for the applicant to understand the different incentives and to select the most appropriate for the eligible research and development activity.


Centers for Applied Technology

The Centers for Applied Technology Program is a competitive effort to support applied technology in areas of advanced materials and manufacturing systems; agriculture, food and environmental sciences; biotechnology, bioengineering and life sciences; and, information technology. The benefits of establishing a center is that an income tax credit equal to 33% of qualified research expenditures may be allowed to an Arkansas taxpayer who invests in an active project under research and development programs offered by the Division of Science & Technology.
