Does my company qualify for the R&D Tax Credit?

Businesses of any size in a variety of industries qualify for the R&D Tax Credit. The only requirements are that the have projects that satisfy the 4-part test and incur qualified research expenses (wages, contractors, supplies/materials) in a given year.

What expenses qualify for the R&D Tax Credit?

Qualified R&D expenses may include taxable wages; guaranteed payments; US contractors, subcontractors and vendors; supplies and materials used during prototyping or testing; and computer rental and cloud storage costs.

What can the R&D Tax Credit be used for?

The tax credits can be used to offset current or future income tax liabilities. For companies filing amended, prior-year returns in which income tax was paid, the IRS issues a cash refund. For startups with no tax liability, the tax credit can be used to offset payroll taxes.

Which states offer R&D Tax Credits?

36 states currently offer a State R&D Tax Credit.

How much can I expect to get in R&D Tax Credits every year?

  • The amount of qualified research expenses you can claim, and
  • ​The benefits available in the state in which your business operates.

Can startups that are/were in losses benefit?

Yes. For qualified small businesses (QSBs) the current year Federal R&D Tax Credit can be used to offset future payroll taxes owed to the IRS. So, if qualified, EFI will assist to amend and file quarterly 941 reports, saving you money immediately.

Can my company’s chances of audit increase?

No. If the R&D Tax Credits are accurately and properly claimed on a timely-filed tax return, there is no increased chance of audit. Amending a prior-year tax return to claim R&D Tax Credits does increase your audit chances.
