Legislators Say ‘No’ to Refundable Tax Credits

THANK YOU to the legislators who voted on the floor today to oppose HB2492 – a bill that would allow a few large corporations to make their R&D tax credits refundable.

No confusion here, refundable tax credits are direct subsidies to corporations without the complications (transparency) of the appropriations process.   The heroes of the tax payers today were:
