For university start-ups strapped for cash and quickly burning through what they do have, every penny counts…

Did you know many start-ups can offset their research and development expenses each year by leveraging federal and state R&D Tax Credits. The R&D Tax Credit is available for companies engaged the development of new or improved products and processes. A recent program expansion includes new benefits for eligible start-ups to receive up to $250,000 per year for five years towards payroll taxes. This provision is particularly helpful for tech and life science start-ups with engineers, scientists, and developers on staff.

First enacted in 1981, the R&D Tax Credit is now permanent and expanded with new provisions that enable more companies to monetize the credit.  In addition to the federal program, many states, like New York, have their own R&D Tax Credit programs.
