Tax Credit for Investors in Maryland Tech Startups

Looking to invest in a Maryland-based technology startup? Investors can now earn a tax credit of up to 50% of the investment.

Building upon a previous program set aside to support cybersecurity startups in Maryland, $2 million in funding is available to investors who back early-stage companies.

How much is available? Investors in qualified Maryland technology startups qualify for 33% (up to $250,000) in tax credits, 50% (up to $500,000) for companies located in select counties.

Multiple industry sectors qualify, including aerospace, cybersecurity, education, artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, agriculture, robotics and other technology areas.

Applications for the Maryland Innovation Investment Tax Credit are now available. Visit the Department of Commerce website for more details.

Passed by the Maryland General Assembly, Governor Hogan signed the tax credit program into law earlier this year.
