Current Bill Summary


SB 292 - This act allows the Department of Economic Development to authorize up to $5 million in tax credits per year to encourage equity investment in technology-based early stage Missouri companies, commonly referred to as angel investments. Investors who contribute the first five hundred thousand dollars in equity investment to a qualified Missouri business may be issued a tax credit equal to thirty percent of the investment or forty percent of the investment if the qualified business is located in a rural area or distressed community. An investor can receive a credit of up to fifty thousand dollars for an investment in a single qualified business and up to one hundred thousand dollars for investments in more than one qualified business per year. Tax credits for equity investment in technology-based early stage Missouri companies may be carried forward for up to three years or transferred. The act also removes the sixty million dollar annual limitation on tax credit issuance for the Missouri Quality Jobs Act.

This act is identical to Senate Bill 45 (2009).
