Nebraska R&D Tax Credits

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

Nebraska provides a research and development credit very closely matching the federal tax credits under IRC § 41. The Nebraska Advantage Research and Development Credit is a refundable credit equal to either 15% or 35% of the federal credit allowed under IRC § 41 for qualifying taxpayers. Most companies with QREs can claim an R&D tax credit equal to 15% of the federal credit allowed under IRC § 41, and also 35% of the federal R&D credits attributed to basic research payments made to a college or university in Nebraska.

If the business firm makes R&D expenditures in Nebraska and in other states, the tax credit will be apportioned to determine the amount based on activities conducted in Nebraska. The credit is claimed using Nebraska Form 3800N and Worksheet RD.
