Biofuel Production Facility Tax Credit

Repealed: 07/02/2015

The following was repealed by Act 27, 2015: Companies that invest in the development of a biofuel production facility may be eligible for a tax credit of up to 5% of project costs per year for up to 20 years. Companies may claim this credit against the state income tax or the financial institution excise tax liability that the project generates. For the purposes of the credit, biofuel is defined as a motor vehicle fuel that is produced from grain, starch, oilseeds, vegetable, algae, animal materials, or other biomass. To be eligible for the tax credit, the capital costs of the production facility must be at least $2 million, or $500,000 if the facility is located in a favored geographic area, which includes enterprise zones and less developed areas. The credit expires December 31, 2018. Additional restrictions apply. (Reference Code of Alabama 2-2-90, 40-18-190 through 40-18-194, and 40-18-202.1)
