Tax Credits & Incentives

Watch and Money

It is a proven fact that more than 50% of credits and incentives go unclaimed annually. Marcum wants to ensure that these opportunities are never missed. Our professionals have extensive experience identifying and securing credits and incentives in every industry segment.

Marcum's Tax Credits and Incentives Services practice can help your business reduce costs, generate refunds and provide the advice to unlock and secure favorable incentives packages. We can help identify tax and non-tax savings opportunities for job creation, research, training and other qualified expenditures.

Busy companies can overlook non-traditional methods to reduce costs. When operations and the general business climate run at lower levels, opportunities present themselves to utilize tax incentives that impact the bottom line by:

  • Avoiding paying unnecessary taxes.
  • Obtaining immediate tax refunds.
  • Reducing operational costs.
  • Improving earnings before interest and tax, net income and shareholder value.
  • Enhancing the economic value of company initiatives.

The Research & Development Tax Credit

The Research & Development tax credit is one of the few domestic tax credits existing under current tax law - and is often overlooked and most often not utilized to its maximum potential. This credit is an important tool for maximizing a company's value. Companies now have the ability to apply for the Alternative Simplified Tax Credit (ASC) which may be most beneficial to companies that have not reported research credits in the past or previously been limited due to the base amount rules. The Research & Development Tax Services team at Marcum LLP can help.

Marcum Research and Development Tax Credit (RDTC) Services

Our RDTC practice group has over 30 years of experience in applying the Research and Development (R&D) tax credit to a variety of industries, including high technology, software, manufacturing and service industries. We enhance our capabilities through an alliance with RD Tax Savers, who provide technical and engineering expertise.

Is your company eligible for a tax credit?

No matter if your business is doing well or in loss situation, there are a variety of credits and incentives available.

Some additional federal domestic credit and incentive programs include:

  • Employment based credits such as the Work Opportunity Tax Credit.
  • Economic Development Credits.
  • Energy Credits and Incentives.
 
Our Approach to RDTC Studies

Once the determination has been made that a business is eligible for the RDTC, we undertake a preliminary feasibility study. This preliminary study estimates the expected range of federal and state credits, along with the cost to produce the studies, to allow the business to make an appropriate cost benefit decision regarding whether to proceed with the Study.

As a client opts to proceed, we will initiate the Study by obtaining a more in-depth understanding of the client's business and interviewing appropriate individuals who have been participants in various stages of the research and development. This will enable us to ascertain which projects and costs (known as Qualified Research Expenditures or QRE(s)) should be included in the calculation of the Credit. The results are summarized in an RDTC report which includes the information needed to obtain the federal and state credits through either a tax return or an application based upon state jurisdiction.

Marcum's professionals advise how to best track and capture the QRE(s). Our team will provide representation to support the amount of the credit in the event of an examination by a taxing authority.

Benefits include:

  • $1 for $1 Reduction on taxes owed or taxes paid.
  • Additional future tax savings.
  • Significant credits/ cash back from previous three years' returns.
  • Credits that have not been claimed may be carried back one year and forward 20 years.
  • Overall increase in company assets and value.
