RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT TAX CREDIT

Are you getting the appropriate R&D tax credit for your business?

What is Research & Development Tax Credit?
Research & Development 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 businesses of all sizes, not just for 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.
