Event Synopsis:

The Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit was created to help businesses engaged in qualified research activities. The credit is applicable to companies of all sizes including startups and small companies. The credit enables companies and their owners to offset federal taxes dollar for dollar. Startups who have not yet turned a profit may reduce the load of their federal payroll tax bills up to a maximum of $250,000 annually. The IRS notes only four steps for an activity to qualify for the credit.

However, because of some legal misinterpretations on tax credit laws, only very few companies in the U.S. take advantage of the R&D tax credit. Although the federal government encourages research companies to qualify for the credit, the credit tends to be misunderstood and underutilized.

Listen as a panel of distinguished tax credit professionals organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit. Speakers, among other things, will offer helpful insights on the benefits of qualifying for such credit, as well as strategies to avoid common pitfalls.

In a live webcast, the speakers will discuss:

PATH Act of 2015 – Overview
The Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit – In-depth discussion
Annual Tax Offset under R&D Tax Credit
How to Qualify for R&D Tax Credit
Frequently Asked Questions about R&D
