Research & Development Tax Credit: Cash Incentives for Making Improvements

July 16, 2020

The Research and Development (“R&D”) Tax Credit is an excellent tax savings tool for companies that engage in product or process development. This tax credit is often overlooked by companies as only pertaining to scientists and labs. However, the actual definition of what qualifies for the R&D credit is much broader. Taxpayers of any size that design, develop, or improve products, processes, techniques formulas, inventions, or software are eligible. In this webinar, our professionals will:

  • Define the R&D tax credit
  • Highlight the activities and related expenses that qualify for the credit
  • Review the impact and opportunities of recent court cases
  • Recognize potential federal and state tax savings for your company
