R & D TAX CREDITS FOR CONSTRUCTION FIRMS
Many construction companies are unaware that the federal government offers research and development (R&D) tax credits. Other companies are aware of these credits, but fail to take full advantage of them due to misconceptions about the types of research and development activities that qualify. Research and development is not limited to the work of scientists; a broad range of construction industry practices will qualify for the credit under the Internal Revenue Code’s definition of R&D.
Steve Mihalik, a shareholder at Doeren Mayhew with more than 25 years of public accounting experience, will discuss how construction firms can quality for Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits.
