Credits & Incentives

Reaping the benefits of a never-ending array of federal and state tax saving opportunities

When it comes to minimizing your tax burden, the most important tools available to taxpayers are federal and state tax credits, incentives and deductions. These range from research and development credits to credits for energy-efficient homes to child day care assistance credits and more.

Tax credits, incentives and deductions can be used for businesses in start-up modes to encourage investors to participate in low-income housing opportunities or even for plugging abandoned oil wells. As policies and priorities shift at both the federal and state level of government, legislators are continually crafting and bringing new tax credit opportunities to life.

Taxpayers seek assistance to address key challenges like:

  • Discovering tax credits, incentives or deductions that may be available when pursuing business or individual wealth growth and preservation
  • Assessing the applicability and taxpayer qualifications for sizing available tax-advantaged opportunities
  • Reviewing previous years’ tax returns to assess whether opportunities have been missed and those that can be recovered
  • Performing any required studies and producing reports for tax authorities, for example, R&D credits or cost segregation reports
  • Preparing or amending tax forms
  • Defending the applicability and qualifications of the taxpayer before tax authorities
