Rhode Island statute allows for multiple tax credits and incentives that can be used to offset tax liability.

Some of these tax credits and incentives are "by right" and do not require pre-approval or certification by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation.  These credits and incentives still require that supporting documentation and a tax credit form, if applicable, be provided when the tax credit or incentive is claimed on a tax return.  Without this supporting documentation, the tax credit or incentive claimed will not be allowed.


The Rhode Island Division of Taxation oversees and administers several tax credit and incentive programs.  Below, you will find links to the procedures and applications for these select credits.

The credit and incentive programs require applications, approval and review by the RI Division of Taxation and, if applicable, another state agency.
