R&D Tax Credit Studies – Des Moines (IA)

R&D Credit Consulting

Finding ways to reduce costs and expenses while driving sales, profitability and growth is essential to success in business. Companies in Des Moines and across Iowa navigate the success formula differently by adjusting operations, production, vendor contracts, and pricing strategies. Others focus on product variation, new product development, relationship management, and marketing programs. While useful, many are surprised to learn about the saving potential available through federal tax incentives including the Research & Development (R&D) tax credit. The credit is designed to incentivize innovation projects and provide a financial incentive to undertake such efforts. It features dollar-for-dollar savings against current year taxes and has both a carryforward and carryback feature. Despite its amazing potential, many businesses do not attempt to claim the credit because of various misconceptions about who can apply, qualifying activities, and restrictions.
