Who Can Benefit from VCI Tax Credits?

Investors in Indiana startups can receive an additional boost to their investment dollars by leveraging VCI tax credits against their Indiana tax liabilities.  

Investors who do not carry Indiana tax liabilities may pursue the sale of their tax credits to potential buyers through the transferability allowance implemented by the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) in 2020. 

There is no cost to use TechPoint’s Indiana VCI Marketplace to make connections as either a buyer or seller, as facilitating connections that lead to more investment opportunity in our startup community is a part of our mission. Once introduced by a TechPoint representative, paired potential buyers and sellers are encouraged to fully connect and negotiate transaction terms. 

Rules for Transfer Eligibility

  • $10,000 or more certified through a SINGLE certification letter with a corresponding unique PIN number. Multiple Certification Letters/PIN numbers may not be combined to meet the minimum assignment amount threshold. 
  • Tax Credits may only be assigned to another taxpayer in exchange for currency. This can include forms of currency that are not in United States Dollars (USD); however, if the taxpayer is assigning credits in exchange for currency that is not USD the Assignor/Seller and the Assignee/Purchaser may be asked to confirm that the value of the currency conforms with the final point immediately below. 
  • Assignor/Seller is prohibited from receiving value in connection with an assignment that exceeds the value of the part of the credit assigned. This policy requires the value of the Tax Credit to be its face value, and not some other calculated price based on its perceived value to the Assignor/Seller and/or the Assignee/Purchaser.
