Any company located in Lowell that is engaged in research and development and is classified as R&D with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue can qualify for an exemption on corporate sales tax from the state. In addition, the City of Lowell is one of the few communities in MA offering 100% tax exemption on any core equipment directly related to its R&D activities.
