With the April tax deadline just a few days away, taxpayers are scrambling to find those last few deductions to lower their tax bill. While there are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of potential tax deductions to evaluate, the Domestic Production Activities Deduction is one that US companies should be looking at very closely.


We put together a  short video introduction to the Domestic Production Activities Deduction to help CPAs, business owners, CFOs, controllers and private equity understand the basics of this important tax incentive.


 Introduction to the DPAD (part 1)


Our next video will focus on the methods available to companies to allocate expenses for the DPAD.  We hope you will join us both for the next video and webinar on May 2nd where we will go through the rules and examples of how the DPAD is calculated. You can find more information and register for the webinar here


This incentive is constantly changing as a result of court cases and IRS Notices. We recommend utilizing the services of an expert (shameless self-promotion below) in this area in order to mitigate potential mistakes, maximize your DPAD and develop the proper documentation.


At Acena Consulting, we recognize that you, the small business owner, have a lot more on your plate than worrying about another tax deduction. Our role is to bring strong tax technical knowledge, ability to build efficient processes, answer the questions you may not know to ask. We take this concern off your list so you can focus on your core business.
