Craft Brewers Leaving R&D Tax Credits Untapped

Opportunities Available to Reduce Income Tax Liabilities

Tax reform has created ample changes for businesses, as well as confusion in the marketplace for what applies and what doesn’t. The clarity around applying the Research and Development (R&D) tax credit is no exception.

The R&D tax credit is granted to companies engaged in R&D activities. It is a dollar-for-dollar credit offset against income tax liability – making it much more advantageous than a deduction. The credit is available federally, as well as within some state tax laws.

How & When the R&D Tax Credit Applies

Generally speaking, businesses who do not claim the R&D tax credit aren’t sure which activities qualify as research, what expenditures qualify for the credit, what documentation is needed to demonstrate research, and how to use the credit appropriately.

To help explain this, K·Coe Isom recently hosted a webinar on the opportunities available to craft brewers – of all shapes and sizes – that are looking for an opportunity to reduce income tax liabilities.
