Possible FL R&D tax credit: Info needed on use ofFederal R&D tax credit

The UCF Office of Economic Development and the Florida High Tech Corridor and others are working with the Florida legislature on establishing a Florida R&D tax credit that would be the same as or at least comparable to the Federal credit program. To help show the value of such an act by the legislature, we have been ask to find companies that have used the Federal R&D Tax Credit in the past. The need is to provide Tallahassee with examples that could lead them to the conclusion that if Florida had one, it would have a significant potential impact, and should be based on the Federal program.

If your company has used the Federal R&D tax credit, would you please send an email to Ed Schons ( indicating that your company has used the credit, and if possible, in what years. If you have questions or need further information, please call Ed at (407)882-2103 or (407)247-6500 (cell).

Because of the legislative deadlines, this information is needed ASAP.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide in this matter.

Jim Pearson
FPC Executive Director
