Are you eligible for
R&D tax credits?
Most companies engaged in research and development (also called research and experimentation) already claim tax deductions for their costs. For qualifying R&D expenses, however, those same expenses can also generate tax credits as well – a double benefit from the same expenses.
Manufacturing and technology companies of all types are often eligible
Companies engaged in:
Increase cash flow due to lower taxes based on tax credits for qualifying R&D costs in addition to existing tax deductions
Establish systems to capture R&D costs for tax credits in future years
Potential for amending prior three years' open returns for additional tax credits if qualifying expenses found
In an R&D tax credit study, a tax professional identifies expenses that qualify for both the federal and state R&D tax credit. These may include both materials used in R&D and qualified wages for personnel engaged in research and often certain outside consultants. If significant tax credits are identified, the organization may choose to file amended tax returns to capture any open years' tax credits. Our tax professionals can also assist with any amended returns required.
