New R&D Credit Guidance for Certain Taxpayers with Audited Financials
Some possible qualifying expenditures, like contract research, are not included in the "safe harbor" of this directive and would need to be analyzed and included separately in the taxpayer's QRE amount, as appropriate. Such costs outside the purview of this guidance can be claimed but would be subject to risk assessment and possible examination.
This new guidance for LB&I taxpayers that meet the above definition is optional and is available for original returns timely filed, including extensions, going forward. "A significant amount of analysis and planning will be required to properly comply with this new directive. Engineered Tax Services can help LB&I taxpayers and their CPAs navigate these new rules to help maximize their R&D tax credits," said David Mayer, CPA and National Director of ETS.
