What Is the R&D Tax Credit?

The R&D tax credit is available to companies developing new or improved business components. It’s available at the federal and state level, with over 35 states offering an additional credit to offset state tax liability. The R&D tax credit is calculated as a percentage of the company’s expenses related to R&D activities. Qualified R&D expenditures can include operating expenses such as wages, materials, and payments to third-party contractors if the activity that gives rise to the expenditure is a qualified research activity. So, while these expenses are generally fully deductible when determining taxable income, what many companies do not realize is that they can also count toward the R&D credit.

Qualifying R&D Activities

Activities that give rise to qualified research expenditures for purposes of the Sec. 41 R&D credit can include such activities as:

Developing a new or improved product

Developing new technology

Creating a new production process

Improving current processes

Developing or improving software

Developing prototypes or models
