79-32,182b. Credit against tax for corporations for certain research and development activity expenditures. (a) For all taxable years commencing after December 31, 2000, a credit shall be allowed against the tax imposed by the Kansas income tax act on the Kansas taxable income of a taxpayer for expenditures in research and development activities conducted within this state in an amount equal to 61/2 % of the amount by which the amount expended for such activities in the taxable year of the taxpayer exceeds the taxpayer’s average of the actual expenditures for such purposes made in such taxable year and the next preceding two taxable years.
(b) In any one taxable year, the amount of such credit allowable for deduction from the taxpayer’s tax liability shall not exceed 25% of the total amount of such credit plus any applicable carry forward amount. The amount by which that portion of the credit allowed by subsections (a) and (b) to be claimed in any one taxable year exceeds the taxpayer’s tax liability in such year may be carried forward until the total amount of the credit is used.
(c) As used in this section, the term “expenditures in research and development activities” means expenditures made for such purposes, other than expenditures of moneys made available to the taxpayer pursuant to federal or state law, which are treated as expenses allowable for deduction under the provisions of the federal internal revenue code of 1986, as amended, except that for taxable years commencing after December 31, 2013, expenditures in research and development activities shall not include any expenditures for the performance of any abortion, as defined in K.S.A. 65-6701, and amendments thereto.
(d) For tax year 2013 and all tax years thereafter, the income tax credit provided by this section shall only be available to taxpayers subject to the income tax on corporations imposed pursuant to subsection (c) of K.S.A. 79-32,110, and amendments thereto, and shall be applied only against such taxpayer’s corporate income tax liability.
