Item DescriptionFY2012 FY2013 FY2014
2.602 Investment Tax Credit
Manufacturing corporations and corporations engaged primarily in research and development, agriculture or commercial fishing are allowed to take a credit of 3% of the cost of depreciable real and tangible property. Such property must have a useful life of four years or more. The property must be used and located in Massachusetts on the last day of the taxable year. A corporation cannot take the credit on property which it leases to another. A corporation can take the credit on property which it leases from another (for property leased and placed in service on or after July 1, 1994). Generally, eligible corporate lessees making qualifying leasehold improvements may claim the credit. A corporation may carry over to the next succeeding three years any unused portion of its Investment Tax Credit (ITC), but it is neither transferable nor refundable.

To be consistent with all other estimates in this document, this estimate is based on actual investment tax credit claims of corporations from the most recent Corporate Excise Returns Report, and does not take into account increased tax revenues resulted from greater economic activity induced by the investment tax credit (i.e., the estimate is "static", not "dynamic")
