‘Qualified US Life Science Headquarters company’, an affiliated group, as defined in Section 1504(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that derives at least 70 percent of its revenue from the sale or license of life science products or intellectual property, or the rendering of contract life sciences services, or the combination of the two, if either (1) greater than 70 percent of all commercial employees, excluding sales representatives, are Massachusetts based employees, or (2) if greater than 70 percent of all tangible property excluding inventory, leased or owned, would be apportionable to Massachusetts in the fiscal year, notwithstanding the company's ability to qualify for single sales factor apportionment.
(b) For Qualified US Life Science Headquarters Companies, research and development costs, within the meaning of section 41(b) of the Code, shall include, to the extent they relate to legally mandated clinical trial activities, those qualified research expenditures that are performed both inside and outside of the commonwealth.
(c) A Qualified US Life Science Headquarters company shall be allowed a credit against its excise due under this chapter equal to the sum of ten percent of the excess, if any, of the qualified research expenses for the taxable year, over the base amount; and fifteen percent of the basic research payments determined under subsection (e)(1)(A) of section forty-one of the Federal Internal Revenue Code. The terms, ‘qualified research expenses’, ‘base amount’, ‘qualified organization base period amount’, ‘basic research’, and any other terms affecting the calculation of said credit shall, unless the context otherwise requires or unless otherwise stated herein, have the same meanings as under said section forty-one of said Code as amended and in effect on August twelfth, 1991. In determining the amount of the credit allowable under this section, the commissioner of revenue may aggregate the activities of all corporations that are members of a controlled group of corporations, as defined by subsection (f)(1)(A) of section forty-one of said Code, and in addition may aggregate the activities of all entities, whether or not incorporated, that are under common control, as defined by subsection (f)(1)(B) of section forty-one of said Code.
(d) For purposes of section thirty, the deduction from gross income that may be taken with respect to any expenditures qualifying for a credit under said section forty-one of said Code as amended and in effect on August twelfth, 1991 shall be based upon its cost less the credit allowable hereunder; provided, however, that subsection (c) of section two hundred and eighty C of said Code shall not apply.
(e) The credit allowed hereunder for any taxable year shall not reduce the excise to less than the amount due under subsection (b) of section thirty-two, subsection (b) of section thirty-nine, or section sixty-seven and under any act in addition thereto.
(f) The credit allowed under this section is limited to one hundred percent of a corporation’s first twenty-five thousand dollars of excise, as determined before the allowance of any credits, plus seventy-five percent of the corporation's excise, as so determined in excess of twenty-five thousand dollars. The commissioner of revenue shall promulgate regulations similar to those authorized under section 38(c)(2)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code for purposes of apportioning the twenty-five thousand dollars amount among members of a controlled group. Nothing in this section shall alter the provisions of section thirty-two C, as it affects other credits under this chapter.
(g) In the case of corporations filing a combined return of income under section 32B, a credit generated by an individual member
corporation under the provisions of this section shall first be applied against the excise attributable to that company under section thirty-two or thirty-nine, subject to the limitations of paragraphs (c) and (d). A member corporation with an excess research and development credit may apply its excess credit against the excise of another group member, to the extent that such other member corporation can use additional credits under the limitations of said paragraphs (c) and (d). Unused, unexpired credits generated by a member corporation shall be carried over from year to year by the individual corporation that generated the credit and shall not be refundable, Nothing in this section shall alter the provisions of paragraph (h) of section thirty-one A.
(h) Any corporation entitled to a credit under this section for any taxable year, may carry over and apply to its excise for any one or more of the next succeeding fifteen taxable years, the portion, as reduced from year to year, of its credit which exceeds its excise for the taxable year. Any corporation may carry over and apply to its excise for any subsequent taxable year the portion of those credits, as reduced from year to year, which were not allowed by paragraph (f).
(i) The commissioner of revenue shall promulgate such regulations as are necessary to implement this section.
(j) The provisions of this section shall apply to expenditures incurred on or after January first, 1991; in the case of any taxable year which begins before January first, 1991, and ends before December thirty-first, 1991, the base amount and the qualified organization base period amount with respect to such taxable year shall be the amount which bears the same ratio to the base amount and the qualified organization base period amount for such year, determined without regard to this paragraph, as the number of days in such taxable year on or after January first, 1991, bears to the total number of days in that taxable year.
SECTION 35B. Section 38Q of chapter 63, as inserted by section 35A of the bill, shall take effect for taxable years beginning on January 1, 2008 and before January 1, 2011 and shall expire on December 31, 2010.”

“SECTION 22. Section 6 of chapter 62 of the General Laws is hereby amended by inserting after subsection (1), as most recently amended by section 4 of chapter 63 of the acts of 2007, the following 2 subsections:—
(m) (1) A taxpayer subject to tax under this chapter which undertakes a project of economic investment within the commonwealth may take a credit against the taxes imposed by this chapter, in an amount equal to 10 per cent of the cost of qualifying property used exclusively in the commonwealth for the project. Qualifying property shall be tangible personal property and other tangible property, excluding property taxable under chapter 60A but including buildings and structural components of buildings acquired by purchase, as defined under section 179(d) of the Code, as amended and in effect for the taxable year, if the property is depreciable under section 167 of the Code and has a useful life of 4 years or more. If such property is disposed of or ceases to be in qualified use before the end of its useful life or before the end of the year in which the credit is to be taken, the recapture and related provisions of subsection (e) of section 31A of chapter 63 shall apply. A taxpayer taking a credit allowed under this subsection may not take the credit allowed by subsection (g) except to such extent, not to exceed 2 per cent of the cost of any qualifying property.
A credit is allowed under this section only to the extent that the taxpayer files the application with the department of business development, in a form as may be determined by the department.
(2) Any taxpayer entitled to a credit under this section for any taxable year may carry over and apply to its tax for any of the next succeeding 10 taxable years, that portion, as reduced from year to year, of those credits which exceed the tax for the taxable year.
(3) The commissioner of revenue shall adopt rules and regulations as are necessary to implement this section. Such rules and regulations may provide the adjustment of intercompany prices and elimination of intercompany transactions to ensure that all amounts upon which the credit is based reasonably reflect fair market value. In addition, such rules and regulations shall include provisions to prevent the generation of multiple credits with respect to the same property.
(4) If a credit allowed under this subsection, or a credit as may be allowed under subsection (g) as limited in this subsection, exceeds the tax otherwise due under chapter 62, 90 per cent of the balance of such credit shall, at the option of the taxpayer, be refundable to the taxpayer for the taxable year in which qualified property giving rise to that credit is placed in service. If such credit balance is refunded to the taxpayer, the credit carryover provisions of paragraph (2) and of paragraph (2) of subsection (g) shall not apply.
After debate, the question on adoption of the amendment was determined by a call of the yeas and nays at nine minutes before six o’clock P.M., on motion of Mr. Tarr, as follows, to wit (yeas 5 — nays 32) [Yeas and Nays No. 186]:
