How CTI makes tax incentives easy


Supporting Documentation

For years a company relied on the finance and accounting teams to claim R&D tax credits. Because they did not have the manpower to fully document research activities and expenses, they calculated credits based on estimates and assumptions.

Expert Study Analysis

CTI’s expert team did the ‘heavy lifting’ to perform a rigorous study analysis to account for all qualified activities and expenses, and then re-calculated all the R&D tax credits. CTI more than tripled the amount of federal and state R&D credits claimed.

CTI identified almost $2 million in R&D tax credits over three years. We’ve built a rapport and consistent methodology with CTI that makes for an efficient study process and credit amounts beyond our expectations.
