    Designing for Dollars – Architects and the R&D Tax Credit

    Friday, February 12, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST

    Learn how Architects may decrease taxes and increase cash flow with the R&D tax credit. Many activities performed by architecture firms during conceptual design, schematic design, design development, and construction document phases qualify for the R&D tax credit. The credit averages about 6.5 cents on the dollar at the federal level with many states having similar incentives: often doubling the benefit.


    Learning Objectives

      1. Identify target-rich environments for R&D activities.
      2. Learn how to optimize time and project tracking to maximize tax credits.
      3. Debunk the myths of the R&D tax credit.
      4. Understand the four-part test and basic exclusions to R&D, including the main components of funded versus non-funded research.
