Does Your Business Quality for the R&D Tax Credit? 

Many company leaders don't realize their operations qualify for the research and development tax credit. Launched in 1981, the R&D tax credit rewards businesses that discover, design, and further develop both new and existing technologies. The innovation tax credit offers business owners an opportunity to:

  • Earn up to 13.5 cents of federal and state R&D tax credits for every qualified dollar
  • Claim a dollar-for-dollar reduction in both federal and state income tax liability
  • Lower effective tax rate
  • Increase in earnings per share
  • Drive cash flow

The research and development tax credit also offers a carry forward credit of up to 20 years. Businesses can also perform look-back studies to identify unclaimed credits for open tax years.
