Course Description

The R&D Tax Credit is a 20% federal credit designed to incentivize technological advances and the hiring of employees to perform R&D activities in the United States. R&D was made permanent by the PATH Act signed into law on December 18, 2015. The provision allows Eligible Small Businesses (ESB) that satisfies the less than $50 million gross receipts requirement to offset a taxpayer’s regular and AMT liabilities for tax years beginning after December 31, 2015.

Join CTI Director of R&D Mark Echols for an insightful and educational webinar for an in-depth look exploring what the R&D credit is, how to identify opportunities, and address concerns for capturing the R&D tax credit.
