Designing for Dollars - Architects and the R&D tax credit


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. 


This is a Lunch + Learn that is being offered in person or you can join in as a webinar participant.
