WHAT IS THE FEDERAL R&D TAX CREDIT?
R&D = Research and Development (also known as the Research and Experimentation Tax Credit). The tax credits are an incentive for businesses to innovate and improve, through experimentation in the United States.
For the first three years of R&D claims, 6% of the total qualified research expenses (QRE) form the gross credit. In the 4th year of claims and beyond, a base amount is calculated, and an adjusted expense line is multiplied times 14%.
All industries and most types of businesses can qualify for the R&D tax credit if they can satisfy the 4-Part Test.

- Is the work technological in nature?
- Is there a permitted purpose?
- Is there elimination of uncertainty?
