Requires that expenditures made from such reserve be used to acquire, construct, reconstruct, or erect depreciable business assets, for research or experimentation in connection with the taxpayer's trade or business, or for employee wage increases. Permits the accumulation of amounts of capital in the business expansion reserve for up to five years without tax penalty.

Disallows any business expense deduction or credit for amounts paid out of a business expansion reserve other than the credit authorized by this Act.
