R&D Tax Credits
There is no question that innovation is considered the key to improving economic conditions. Are you getting the R&D tax credits you deserve?

R&D Tax Credits

Are your getting all you can from your research and development (R&D) activities?

Regardless of your size, you are probably like most manufacturers. You are continually looking for ways to improve existing processes and products and/or develop new ones.

You have always bet on innovation, and the federal lawmakers again endorsed your efforts by extending the research & development (R&D) tax credit through 2009 and increasing the alternative simplified credit from 12 percent to 14 percent.

Uncover opportunities for R&D tax credits in your operation

Manufacturers like you have taken advantage of R&D tax credits when they developed new technology, added new equipment, introduced new materials, performed environmental testing, improved or built new manufacturing facilities, and/or streamlined internal processes. We can help you uncover unique opportunities for R&D tax credits in your operation.

Why hasn’t your existing business advisor suggested research and development credits? The process of identifying the opportunity for federal R&D tax credits and substantiating the claim is complicated. You may also qualify for state and global incentives, depending on where the activities were performed. 

You will benefit from our tax expertise and knowledge of manufacturing

We have a proven track record of helping manufacturers take advantage of R&D tax credits. We are particularly suited to help maximize your R&D tax credits because our firm serves more than 1,000 manufacturers, and we know how the tax laws affect your industry.

We can help reduce your current year effective tax rate or uncover cash refunds from previously filed income tax returns and get the most out of your research and development activities. That means the IRS sends you back cash — often lots of it.

Currently big business is netting 93 percent of all R&D tax credit dollars, even though small and mid-size businesses represent 98 percent of the nation’s businesses.

If you think your company may qualify, call us today for a complimentary evaluation of your R&D potential.
