The Maryland General Assembly ended its 2013 legislative session April 8.
One of the measures approved this year was the Cybersecurity Investment Incentive Tax Credit.
- Establishes a tax credit for investment in startup cybersecurity companies that will help solidify Maryland’s place as a cybersecurity leader in both the government and commercial spaces
- Provides a refundable tax credit to qualified Maryland cybersecurity companies that seek and secure capital from an in-state or out-of-state investor
- Funds the tax credit at $3 million for fiscal year 2014
- Allows Maryland to promote the development of startup cybersecurity companies that provide greater revenues for the state
This tax credit is yet another step in Governor Martin O’Malley‘s push to make the state the “epicenter of cybersecurity.”
