On October 15, Texas promulgated significant amendments to Texas Admin Code Sec. 3.599 concerning the research and development activities franchise tax credit.

The amendments offer a significant departure from IRC statute and regulations when addressing the definitions of qualified research and qualified research expenditures. The changes also provide significant administrative challenges to taxpayers by requiring the research credit to be computed for each legal entity and records to be maintained beyond the normal statute of limitations.
