Research and Development Tax Incentives for the Environmental Engineering Industry

Environmental engineering firms may not realize that their activities related to the design and development of many types of systems may constitute qualified R&D activities, potentially entitling them to significant R&D incentives. If you think you have to be a manufacturer or software developer to be conducting qualified activities as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, think again. If your firm is in the environmental engineering industry, there is a strong chance that you could benefit from an R&D Tax Credit study. Let alliantgroup’s engineering experts help you claim the credits that you deserve.

Examples of activities and innovations eligible for R&D tax incentives include the following:

  • Conducting brownfield redevelopment
  • Conducting site remediation and redevelopment
  • Drainage system design
  • Performing landfill gas extraction and treatment system design
  • Designing flare stations
