Utah provides a Research and Development Credit which closely follows IRC § 41. The credit amount is a combination of the following calculations:

  1. 5% of your excess qualified research expenses ("QREs") for research activities conducted in Utah over a comparative base amount;
  2. 5% of certain excess payments made to a qualified organization for basic research conducted in Utah over a comparative base amount; and
  3. 7.5% of your QREs in Utah for the current tax year.

Note: You may carry forward any credit for #1 or #2 (above) that exceeds your tax liability for 14 years. You may not carry forward any credit as calculated for #3.
