R&D Tax Credit Studies

An R&D tax credit is a dollar-for-dollar credit against a company’s or individual’s federal and sometimes, state taxes. It is a credit for time and expenses already incurred by the company for efforts to develop a new product, design a new machine or continually improve their processes. An R&D study performed by John Gerlach & Company will generate the maximum benefit available, along with providing the proper supporting documentation.

  • Large equipment purchases
