Are R&D credits legitimate?
Yes! The R&D Credit Program was established by the U.S. government in 1981 (and made permanent with the PATH Act of 2015).
The R&D Credit Program encourages small businesses within the U.S. to keep technical talent domestic while simultaneously continuing to drive innovation. By strengthening businesses at home, we sharpen our competitive edge abroad. The goal is to incentivize American companies to design, develop and improve processes, products, procedures, techniques, and software –– as well as any activities that promote job growth. A majority of small businesses perform these activities, which means you most likely qualify for this credit program.
