Understanding the R&D Credit

Click on one of the four topics below to showcase the content.

The R&D Tax Credit was created by Congress to:

  • Fuel American innovation by reducing the tax bill of qualified businesses.
  • Protect American jobs by keeping our technological capabilities within the United States.
  • Drive Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by investing in companies that showcase innovation.
  • Keep American businesses thriving by offsetting the cost of our premium American workforce.

Prior to 2016 – the R&D Tax Credit could not be taken against AMT. That’s all changed now.

That means if you run a company and AMT has traditionally kept you from further reducing your tax liability, 2016 is your year.

Now you can use the R&D Tax Credit to reduce your tax bill below AMT.

That’s why 2016 and beyond is the time to jump on the R&D Tax Credit.

If you are unsure whether or not your business qualifies as “innovative” – there’s more good news:

Starting in 2001 – Congress evolved the definition to include any activities (products, processes, software, techniques, or formulas) that are new and improved for the company.

In other words – if you’re creating or improving something, whether it’s new to the world or just new to you, you can and should be claiming the research credit.
