469.337 CORPORATE FRANCHISE TAX EXEMPTION.
(a) A qualified business is exempt from taxation under section 290.02, the alternative
minimum tax under section 290.0921, and the minimum fee under section 290.0922, on the
portion of its income attributable to operations of a qualified business within the biotechnology
and health sciences industry zone. This exemption is determined as follows:
(1) for purposes of the tax imposed under section 290.02, by multiplying its taxable net
income by its zone percentage and subtracting the result in determining taxable income;
(2) for purposes of the alternative minimum tax under section 290.0921, by multiplying its
alternative minimum taxable income by its zone percentage and reducing alternative minimum
taxable income by this amount; and
(3) for purposes of the minimum fee under section 290.0922, by excluding zone property and
payroll from the computations of the fee. The qualified business is exempt from the minimum fee
if all of its property is located in the zone and all of its payroll is zone payroll.
(b) No subtraction is allowed under this section in excess of 20 percent of the sum of the
corporation's biotechnology and health sciences industry zone payroll and the adjusted basis of
the property at the time that the property is first used in the biotechnology and health sciences
industry zone by the corporation.
(c) No reduction in tax is allowed in excess of the amount allocated under section 469.335.
