Enabled by the New Mexico Legislature

In 2020, the New Mexico Legislature created a Technology Readiness Gross Receipts Tax Credit for the purpose of helping businesses achieve technology maturation for commercialization opportunities that require improvements on a preexisting invention. As a result, Los Alamos and Sandia national laboratories established the TRGR Technology Readiness Initiative.
