Course Description

Bring a valuable but often overlooked tax opportunity to your business or CPA firm clients with a research and development (R&D) tax credit study. R&D studies can help a company increase cash flow by generating tax credits for qualifying research and development expenses. Yet, the complex and often confusing regulations, calculations, and tracking required may keep CPA firms from offering this service and businesses from claiming the credit.

The webinar provides a high-level look at how businesses and CPA clients can lower their effective tax rate if their activities to develop new or improved products or processes qualify.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize historical context of the R&D credit and its current status

  • Separate fact from myth about credit qualifications

  • Learn how to identify qualified versus non-qualified activities

  • Differentiate calculation method options and discuss examples

  • Hear updates on case law, IRS regulations, and other legislative proposals
