  Synced Audio / Video / Slides

Construction companies operate in a unique environment-a competitive one with a complex regulatory landscape and a constantly rising cost of doing business. But there’s a powerful way to help offset that cost for companies in the construction industry and help them remain competitive: The R&D tax credit.

The R&D credit is one of the most valuable tax incentives you can leverage as it represents a dollar-for-dollar reduction of your income tax liability. And yet these credits are frequently overlooked because construction companies don’t realize that their everyday activities may qualify for the credit.

This 60-minute webinar will provide an overview of the IRS eligibility criteria and how construction companies can determine which activities and expenses are eligible for the credit. Whether you’re a general contractor, specialized drilling contractor, mechanical contractor, civil contractor, or anywhere in between, you may be eligible to claim the R&D credit-so we’ll look at examples of construction companies that have successfully done so. In addition, this session will cover the information required to conduct an R&D tax credit study and the documentation necessary to support credit claims. We’ll also discuss recent court cases and tax law changes and the impact they’ve had on the credit, plus the risks and rewards of claiming it.

After this session, you will be able to:
  • Identify construction industry activities that can qualify for the R&D tax credit
  • Estimate the potential impact of R&D tax credits on your company's bottom line
  • Interpret recent law changes in terms of your company's ability to claim the R&D credit
