Capitalizing Section 174 research & experimental (R&E) expenses
- Dec. 8, 2022
One of the most significant tax changes for many businesses in 2022 is a requirement that taxpayers capitalize and amortize their research and experimentation (R&E) expenses paid or incurred after Dec. 31, 2021, under Section 174. Our tax experts discuss.
For tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2021, a provision from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is slated to take effect by modifying Sec. 174 and requiring research expenses to be capitalized and amortized over multiple years instead of being deducted in the year incurred.
