New York R&D Tax Credits

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

New York provides two separate research and development tax credits:

  • The Excelsior Research and Development Tax credit is refundable and equal to 50% of a qualifying entity's corresponding federal research and development tax credit, subject to a limit of up to 8% of QREs attributable to New York activity (e.g. If the federal credit is $100,000, then the Excelsior credit is $50,000 maximum. If the taxpayer only has $75,000 in New York QREs => Excelsior R&D credit is capped at $75K*.08 = $6,000). Applicants must operate predominately in specific industries that create a minimum number of new jobs for the strategic industry, or retain jobs and make significant capital investments.

  • The Life Sciences R&D Tax Credit is equal to either 15% or 20% of the life science company’s QREs in New York State for a company that employs more than, or less than, 10 persons, respectively. The credit is allowed for up to three consecutive years and is limited to $500,000 per year ($1.5 million lifetime cap). The state will issue a Certificate of Tax Credit showing the amount of tax credit allowed and the tax year the credit may be claimed.  A qualified life sciences company must be a new business.
