Summary:
Reviews status of the research and experimentation (R&E) tax credit, which seeks to stimulate business R&D investment by reducing the after-tax cost to firms of undertaking qualified research above a base amount. Examines the design, effectiveness, and legislative history of the R&E tax credit, and outlines key R&E tax credit policy issues, including a weak and disparate incentive effect, the ambiguous definition of qualified research, and inefficient targeting of R&D with large social returns. Discusses legislation in the 110th Congress to change the R&E tax credit.
