IEEE-USA Livestream Webinar: R&D Tax Credits

#ieeeusa #networking #careers #webinar #student #network #ieee #technology #career #careerbuilding #leadership #STEM #research #development #researchanddevelopment #tax #taxes #credit #taxcredit

The IRS’ definition of R&D and industry’s definition of R&D differ. A large majority of R&D performed in the US is done in the private sector, rather than done by universities and the work that qualifies for R&D Tax Credits is much broader (and more lucrative) than you would think. The program that pays for this R&D work is the Research Tax Credit, which is administered by the IRS. This presentation, R&D Tax Credits for Engineers and Scientists, is a high level basic primer that will teach you what type of R&D work that you already do qualifies for the credit and the general steps required to present your work successfully to the IRS.
