Research & Development Incentives


Take A Deep Dive Into How Your Business May Qualify For Research And Development Incentives

The Federal Credit for Increasing Research Activities ("The R&D Tax Credit") is an income tax credit that can provide a dollar-for-dollar reduction in a company’s federal tax liability.  Many states allow for a state-specific R&D Tax Credit for qualified expenses related to R&D activities conducted in their state.  The availability of these R&D incentives provides great “look back” opportunities where a business can go back to prior years, identify and capture the benefit and then request tax refunds.
