The PA EDGE tax credit is limited to 20% of any of the qualified taxpayer’s qualified tax liabilities incurred in the taxable year for which the credit was approved. A qualified tax liability includes corporate net income tax, bank and trust companies shares tax, title insurance companies shares tax, insurance premiums tax, gross receipts tax, mutual thrift institutions tax and personal income tax liabilities for owners of pass-through entities receiving the credit.

If the qualified taxpayer receiving the PA EDGE tax credit holds the credit through the end of the calendar year in which the credit was granted, the taxpayer may apply for approval to sell or assign the credit to a buyer or assignee. A buyer or assignee may offset up to 50% of its own qualified tax liability with the purchased or assigned credit. The PA EDGE tax credits must be used by the buyer or assignee in the calendar year the purchase or assignment is made. Credits may only be purchased or assigned once.
