Are you getting the appropriate R&D tax credits for your business?
What is the Research & Development Tax Credit?
R&D tax credit is an incentive that rewards taxpayers for conducting research in the United States. Its goal is to promote and incentivize innovation by allowing tax credits for their research expenditures. It is for the businesses of all sizes not just research labs and larger corporations.
Substantiating research activities, documenting research expenses, and computing research tax credits in a way that meets the stringent audit requirements of the IRS and state tax authorities isn’t easy. As a result, we find many taxpayers don’t receive the R&D tax credit they deserve.
- Reduction in federal & state income tax liability
- Immediate cash flow.
- Tax credit carried forward up to 20 years.
- Unclaimed credit for open tax years, generally last three to four years.
- Salaries paid to employees and supervisors involved in the research.
- Payments made to US-based contractors assisting in the qualified research.
- Supplies used and consumed in the R&D process.
