In today’s hyper-competitive A/E business climate, you need every edge that you can get to boost your firm’s after-tax profits. Beyond the usual ways to increase revenue and contain operating expenses, did you know that there is a little-used research and development (R&D) tax credit that you can use to decrease your A/E/C firm’s federal and state income tax obligations?
But did you also know that it was just recently legislated PERMANENT? Did you also know this incentive can now be used to off-set the dread Alternative Minimum Tax?
This credit is open to a majority of tax entity structures including C-Corporations and Pass-Through entities such as S-Corporations, LLCs, Sole Proprietors and Partnerships. If you are a U.S. Company and make products and/or services on U.S. soil then there has to be a credit available to you; the only question to answer now is “what is the size of your benefit?”
This Zweig break-out educational session will provide you with the latest insight on the R&D tax credit that is designed to reduce the high cost of innovation in the United States. Unfortunately, too many A/E/C firm leaders mistakenly believe that this valuable tax credit does not apply to them.
