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.

Power Success with R&D Tax Credits

Innovation powers the economy. Government rewards you for it with tax incentives. Much of the research activity your firm performs may qualify.
