Georgia R&D Tax Credits

Find out if you qualify for R&D tax credits in Georgia and recharge your business.

Research and development (R&D) tax credits are a valuable benefit for companies conducting qualified R&D activities in Georgia.  Any business—from startups to existing companies embarking on R&D for the first time, or established companies expanding their existing R&D budget—can be eligible for Georgia R&D tax credits.

R&D tax credits are available to any company that increases its qualified research expenditures, and credit earned 10% of the increase in R&D spending compared to the base amount. The credit can be used to offset up to 50% of net Georgia income tax liability, after all other credits have been applied.

Any unused R&D tax credits can be carried forward for up to 10 years. In addition, excess R&D tax credits can be used against state payroll withholding.
