Patent Income Tax Exemptions

Certain income derived from qualified patents and earned by a taxpayer are exempt from taxation. The Tax Exemption for Patent-derived Income defines qualified patents to include only utility patents and plant patents. The total amount of exemptions claimed by a taxpayer in a taxable year may not exceed $5 million. The exemption provides that a taxpayer may not claim an exemption for income derived from a particular patent for more than 10 taxable years. The exemption percentage begins at 50 percent of income derived from a qualified patent for each of the first five taxable years, and decreases over the next five taxable years to 10 percent in the 10th taxable year. It also specifies that a taxpayer is eligible to claim the exemption only if the taxpayer is domiciled in Indiana and is either an individual or corporation with not more than 500 employees including employees in the individual’s or corporation’s affiliates or is a nonprofit organization or corporation. The Tax Exemption for Patent-Derived Income is established by IC 6-3-2-21.7.

The Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit provides an incentive for business investment in Indiana by providing a credit against state tax liability for qualified company research expenses.

The R&D tax credit is authorized by IC 6-3.1-4-1 and is administered by the Indiana Department of Revenue.
