How the PATH Act Can Benefit Your R&D Tax Credit

In December 2015, the federal R&D tax credit was made permanent by The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015 (“PATH” Act). Apart from instilling confidence in US businesses to invest in R&D, the PATH Act included two new provisions that will make it easier for startups and small and medium-sized businesses to immediately benefit from the R&D tax credit.  

Essentially, taxpayers that couldn’t utilize or take full advantage of the tax credits in the past should now reassess their eligibility and possibly take advantage of this lucrative incentive.

However, there are a lot of questions surrounding the new rules of the permanent R&D Tax Credit, in particular, the new payroll tax offset. To provide clarification, our latest video tutorial outlines the fundamental aspects of the PATH Act, focusing on the new adjustments to the payroll tax offset.
