15.335  Research activities credit.

An eligible business may claim a corporate tax credit for increasing research activities in this state during the period the eligible business is participating in the program. The credit equals six and one-half percent of the state's apportioned share of the qualifying expenditures for increasing research activities. The state's apportioned share of the qualifying expenditures for increasing research activities is a percent equal to the ratio of qualified research expenditures in this state to total qualified research expenditures. The credit allowed in this section is in addition to the credit authorized in section 422.33, subsection 5. If the eligible business is a partnership, subchapter S corporation, limited liability company, or estate or trust electing to have the income taxed directly to the individual, an individual may claim the tax credit allowed. The amount claimed by the individual shall be based upon the pro rata share of the individual's earnings of the partnership, subchapter S corporation, limited liability company, or estate or trust. For purposes of this section, "qualifying expenditures for increasing research activities" means the qualifying expenditures as defined for the federal credit for increasing research activities which would be allowable under section 41 of the Internal Revenue Code in effect on January 1, 1999.

Any credit in excess of the tax liability for the taxable year shall be refunded with interest computed under section 422.25. In lieu of claiming a refund, a taxpayer may elect to have the overpayment shown on its final, completed return credited to the tax liability for the following year.
