The R&D Tax Credit Opportunity
The R&D Tax Credit was created by Congress in 1981 as an incentive to
Increase private industry research investments. Recognizing that
T h l i li
Technological innovation d i i
ti drives economic growth, productivity, and
th d ti it d
competitiveness, the purpose of the credit was to reverse a decline in
non-governmental U.S. research and development efforts.
To qualify a company must produce a expansive Research and
Development Report detailing every qualifying aspect .
When the IRS approves the R&D Report your credit is not a deduction but
a dollar for dollar credit against taxes owed or
taxes paid. The qualifying aspects are certain
types of p
yp product development, expansion,
process improvement and engineering activities.
It is for businesses of all sizes in a variety
of commercial activities, including engineering,
manufacturing processing, food production
development and other commercial endeavors.
What The Experts Say

that are the cornerstone of America's success.“
