Is your company eligible for a research tax credit?
On Thursday, May 28, BKD, LLP, in cooperation with Manufacturer’s Edge, is hosting a free lunch in Boulder to discuss tax credits.
Discussion led by Ashley Thompson, BKD CPAs & Advisors
Ashley has 15 years of experience helping clients claim federal and state research credits. He leads BKD’s research and experimentation tax credit practice and conducts research credit studies for clients in manufacturing, software development and other industries. In addition to helping clients identify, document and calculate available credits, Ashley helps clients implement strategies to efficiently capture qualified research expenses.
Any taxpayer engaged in what the government considers qualified research activity can qualify for the credit, though companies in the following industries are more likely to qualify:
• Software Development
• Tool and Die
• Biotech and Pharmaceutical
• Oil and Gas Exploration
• Brewery and Distillery
The federal R&D credit is a dollar-for-dollar credit against federal tax. It can be taken during the year earned or, in some cases, carried forward to future tax years or back to prior tax years. Companies also can claim credits from prior years and request a refund. In addition to the federal R&D credit, many states also offer credits for research activity.
Space for the lunch is limited. If you and/or another executive from your company would like to attend, please RSVP by May 26 to email@example.com or 303.837.2261.
We hope you will attend!
