Research and Development Tax Incentives for the Mechanical Contracting Industry

Mechanical contracting companies 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 mechanical contracting industry, there is a strong chance that you could benefit from an R&D Tax Credit study. Let alliantgroup’s contracting experts help you claim the credits that you deserve!

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

  • Developing means, methods and construction techniques
