About the Event

The R&D tax credit is a powerful tool for businesses to spur innovation and invest in research and development activities. In addition to the federal credit, many states also offer their own R&D credits, providing even more opportunities for eligible companies to save money on taxes. For qualified small businesses, the payroll tax credit option can allow them to offset payroll taxes with the R&D credit. By taking advantage of these tax incentives, businesses can take control of their future and invest in the development of new products, services, and technologies. By leveraging the R&D tax credit, businesses can not only save money on taxes, but also stay competitive in their industry by staying at the forefront of innovation.

What will be covered:

  • What activities qualify for R&D Tax Credits
  • Which expenses qualify for R&D Tax Credits
  • Things to consider when applying for R&D
  • Payroll R&D tax credits for qualified small businesses
  • Deadlines to file payroll tax credits
