Permanent extension and expansion of research and development tax credit

Permanent extension and expansion of research and development tax credit

Recent legislation bring a number of changes to the research and development (R&D) credit, making it easier for construction contractors to invest in innovation in the US. With the R&D credit now permanent, taxpayers can more effectively plan and commit to long-term investments in R&D and innovation. In addition, the ability to offset the credit against AMT removes a major obstacle associated with utilization of R&D credits, particularly for owners or members of pass-through entities.

“Although construction demand is recovering, strong competition has reduced profit margins. Contractors need to take advantage of opportunities to reduce costs, maintain or grow the organization, and understand available tax minimization strategies.”
