Investment tax credit (ITC)

Who is eligible? 

You are entitled to this credit if you or your business placed qualified property into service during the tax year.

How much is the credit?

  • The ITC is a percentage of the investment credit base (the cost or other basis of the investment property).
  • It is refundable for new businesses.
  • If you are an eligible farmer, you may qualify to claim 20% of the investment credit base on qualifying property placed in service on or after 4/1/2022. For more information, see Investment tax credit: eligible farmers income test.

Recordkeeping requirements

Taxpayers must prove entitlement to tax credits.  During the course of an audit, you may be required to provide documentation to substantiate entitlement based on the specific facts of your tax credit claim.  See Investment tax credit recordkeeping requirements for more information on the recordkeeping requirements for this credit.
