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.
