Business Trends - You've Earned It - R&D Tax Credit

Course Description:
In 1981, congress implemented the federal Research & Development (R&D) tax credit to encourage companies to invest in innovation. Since then, the government has expanded the types of activities that qualify as R&D allowing many companies to meet the criteria simply through their efforts to stay competitive. Many day-to-day company operations potentially qualify for the R&D tax credit, and as a result, many businesses are receiving tax credits and related deductions for qualified research and development expenditures. Federal R&D credits total more than $12 billion annually; in addition, most states also offer some kind of R&D tax incentive. Join us for a webinar to learn more about R&D tax incentives, and whether or not your company may qualify.

Learning Objectives:
- Identify the different R&D tax incentives
- Discuss what is necessary for a company to qualify
- Outline the many benefits that can result from these types of incentives
- Discuss recent R&D tax developments, including the impact of tax reform on R&D incentives and enhancements for small and medium sized businesses
