How CTI makes tax incentives easy

Maximize State & Federal Credits

A specialty pharma company intended to expand and bolster its research and development expertise within the market. As such, the company wanted to acquire every possible tax credit available with its qualifying activities. And since most of their R&D activities occurred in California, the company was eligible for both federal and state credits.

Comprehensive Study Process

CTI’s elite team conducted a thorough R&D study to identify all qualifying R&D costs. A large portion of those expenses included wages for 150 scientists and R&D-related personnel. With all total tax credits, including the payroll offset, CTI captured $3.5 million for the pharma company.

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.

I really liked the audit protection, operating with the knowledge that CTI stands behind its work. Audit protection, personal relationships, and the ease of the step-by-step process...I could not be happier with the results.
