Topic - Women and Innovation: Understanding the Research and Development Tax Credit
Session: The Section 41 Research and Development Tax Credit is a government-sponsored benefit that has been around since the 1980's and through time it has undergone a number of changes and clarifications. Many businesses miss out on R&D tax credit opportunities simply because they don't realize they qualify for these capital infusing credits. Business efforts and initiatives that focus on product development and improvement, process efficiencies, operational techniques, formulas, or inventions may qualify for federal and state R&D tax credits. These financial incentives are available for companies that conduct qualifying R&D activities in a multitude of industries. From software development, engineering, architecture and manufacturing to wineries and farms, companies in virtually every vertical have successfully taken advantage of the available research and development credits. Join us in learning more about the R&D Tax Credit and how to identify qualifying activities in your own organization and for your clients. We will explore some innovative discoveries from women throughout history and clarify some of the most common misconceptions about the applicability of the R&D Tax Credit today.
