total amount of tax, if any, the hospital or health care provider owes for that calendar year
under sections 295.50 to 295.57. The credit shall equal 2.5 percent of revenues for patient
services used to fund expenditures for qualifying research conducted by an allowable
research program. The amount of the credit shall not exceed the tax liability of the hospital
or health care provider under sections 295.50 to 295.57.

(b) For purposes of this subdivision, the following requirements apply:

(1) expenditures must be for program costs of qualifying research conducted by
an allowable research program;

(2) an allowable research program must be a formal program of medical and health
care research conducted by an entity which is exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the

(3) qualifying research must:

(A) be approved in writing by the governing body of the hospital or health care
provider which is taking the deduction under this subdivision;

(B) have as its purpose the development of new knowledge in basic or applied
science relating to the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the human body;

(C) be subject to review by individuals with expertise in the subject matter of the
proposed study but who have no financial interest in the proposed study and are not
involved in the conduct of the proposed study; and

(D) be subject to review and supervision by an institutional review board operating
in conformity with federal regulations if the research involves human subjects or
an institutional animal care and use committee operating in conformity with federal
regulations if the research involves animal subjects. Research expenses are not exempt if
the study is a routine evaluation of health care methods or products used in a particular
setting conducted for the purpose of making a management decision. Costs of clinical
research activities paid directly for the benefit of an individual patient are excluded from
this exemption. Basic research in fields including biochemistry, molecular biology, and
physiology are also included if such programs are subject to a peer review process.

(c) No credit shall be allowed under this subdivision for any revenue received by the
hospital or health care provider in the form of a grant, gift, or otherwise, whether from a
government or nongovernment source, on which the tax liability under section 295.52 is
not imposed.

(d) The taxpayer shall apply for the credit under this section on the annual return
under section 295.55, subdivision 5.

(e) Beginning September 1, 2001, if the actual or estimated amount paid under this
section for the calendar year exceeds $2,500,000, the commissioner of management and
budget shall determine the rate of the research credit for the following calendar year to the
nearest one-half percent so that refunds paid under this section will most closely equal
$2,500,000. The commissioner of management and budget shall publish in the State
Register by October 1 of each year the rate of the credit for the following calendar year. A
determination under this section is not subject to the rulemaking provisions of chapter 14.
