Claims for Research & Development Credits have always been contentious, as taxpayer audit experience and IRS guidance have borne out. Indeed the IRS has formally identified R&D Credits as a Tier I Issue.

Although taxpayers have recently logged wins in research and development cases, audits of these claims remain intense, and the IRS continues to be skeptical of claims.

This session will include:

  • Practical tips for gathering and preparing evidence to substantiate R&D Credit Claims.
  • An introduction to key legal provisions of R&D Credit.
  • New developments in relation to R&D Credit Claims.
  • Anticipating potential audit issues when developing your claim.
  • Common IRS challenges to supporting documentation.
