Bill Proposes Tax Credits For Angel Investors

A Missouri House representative has introduced legislation that would encourage investment in business startups through tax incentives. The “Missouri Angel Incentive Act,” sponsored by Rep. Noel Torpey, R-Independence, would give tax credits of up to $50,000 per year for businesses and $250,000 per year for individuals who invest in the early stages of a company. The total amount of tax credits would cap out at $6 million.
