Industrial Journalist Suggests Research and Development Tax Credits Offset Costs of Innovation
Industrial Journalist TR Cutler Suggests Research and Development Tax Credits Offset Costs of Innovation, 12/04/2018 - According to Industrial journalist Thomas R. Cutler, equipment manufacturing is one of the largest and most competitive sectors of the U.S. manufacturing economy and is often fragmented. Without innovation, streamlined processes, and continuous product improvement, it is very easy for equipment manufacturers to fall behind and lose market share. Innovation can be expensive; one way to offset that cost is by claiming R&D tax credits.

Cutler reported that while the R&D tax credit has been permanent since 2015, many equipment manufacturers are not yet claiming it, and those that are may not be claiming everything to which they are entitled. Considering the broad range of eligibility criteria, and the fact that the tax credit can be claimed for the current year as well as retroactively up to three years back, this can add up to significant funding that can have a direct impact on the bottom line.
