Angel Investor Tax Credit Extended, Funds Added

MHTA- Governor Dayton signed a tax bill Friday evening that extends Minnesota’s popular Angel Investor Tax Credit two more years and adds funds, but it also restricts eligible investors. Increasing the yearly allotment from $12 million to $15 million, the new law also adds an additional $3 million to this year’s program. Certifications for investors and companies are due May 11 for the additional $3 million in 2014.

The program has been so popular that it has run out of funds earlier and earlier each year since it began in 2010. It ran out of funds in early March this year.

Beginning in 2015, the program divides the available $15 million into two eligibility pools. $7.5 million is available to any certified company/investor in Minnesota. The other $7.5 million, however, is reserved for businesses that meet one of the following criteria: located outside the Twin Cities Metro Area, women-owned, or minority-owned. If applicants meeting those criteria do not use the entire $7.5 million by September 30, the remaining money is released to any certified company/investor in Minnesota.
