R&D Tax Credit Analysis

The Research and Development Tax Credit is a government-sponsored tax incentive that rewards companies for conducting R&D in the USA. The credit incentivizes innovation throughout the economy and to keep technical jobs here in the USA. The credit can be claimed against the income tax liability or payroll tax if a company qualifies. Burkland’s tax preparation services help determine if startups qualify for the credit. Use our R&D Tax Credit Calculator see how much your startup may be able to save with the R&D Tax Credit.
