Importance of the R&D Tax Credit

The Research and Development (“R&D”) tax credit has continuously evolved since its inception in the 1980s. Introduced to increase the competitiveness of U.S.-based businesses to conduct innovative activities, it has now evolved into one of the largest tax credits offered by the government. The credit has since been made permanent to incentivize companies to hire technical talent and continue innovating.


But did you know that R&D tax credits aren’t always associated to beakers and lab coats? In fact, eligible activities extend beyond product development to include daily activities such as consulting, integrating, customizing, or developing software solutions.

How Do the New IRS Updates Affect How the R&D Tax Credit is Claimed?

The new information requirements pertain to the research credit claim’s business components, activities, and costs. For a claim to be valid, taxpayers must do the following:

  • Identify all the business components to which the R&D tax credit can be applied that year;
  • Identify all research activities they’ve conducted and name the individuals who led each research activity, as well as the information each individual sought to discover; and
  • Identify the total qualified employee pay expenditures, total qualified supply expenses, and total qualified contract research expenses for the claim year. You can do this by using Form 6765 (Credit for Increasing Research Activities).
