The R&D Tax Credit: Valuable for American Manufacturers


The R&D Tax Credit, which has been in effect since 1981, is an important tax credit that is available to American businesses that innovate.

Why the R&D Tax Credit?

U.S. manufacturers are under intense global competition and the credit is designed to protect American jobs and spur innovation. And there is good evidence that this credit really does work.

We have served the manufacturing industry for decades and we work closely with our clients to make sure they are taking advantage of every possible tax benefit.

Think it doesn’t apply to you?

Think again. Even if you are not developing new products, you may qualify. You may be eligible for this valuable tax credit if you:

  • Manufacture products,
  • Develop new, improved or more reliable products, processes, or formulas,
  • Improve processes or reduce waste,
  • Design tools, jigs, molds, dies,
  • Develop prototypes or models,
  • Perform testing,
  • Test new materials,
  • Develop, implement, or upgrade software or systems,
  • Add new equipment, or
