If you think the research tax credit doesn’t apply to your company or you believe you’re already maximizing it, this course is for you. 

Government contractors are often not maximizing their credit as they have either been advised not to include their government work or they don’t understand how they can get a credit from the government when the government pays them for the work. 

In this webinar, you’ll learn why that’s not true and how to take your costs (including overlooked costs such as bid and proposal time and cost overruns) tied to your government projects and turn them into profit that will help your bottom line.

Target Audience: Government contractors, startups, software, CPAs, CFOs, tax professionals
