Research & Development Tax Credit

The Research and Development (R&D) tax credit is designed to promote innovation in the United States by rewarding companies that continue to invest in research activities, talent, and growth.

There is no requirement for your company’s R&D to be revolutionary, or for you to have a laboratory or employ scientists—even projects that provide incremental system or design improvements can qualify for this valuable tax credit.
