Electrical Engineering R&D Tax Credits
Electrical engineering businesses are crucial for commercial, health, and military industries. That is because they create a wide range of necessary products, including WiFi, sensors, Bluetooth capabilities, data storage, and many others. But to achieve all that, electrical engineering companies often incur research and development expenditures, which are costly.
For this reason, they need to rely on the Electrical Engineering research and development tax credit to recover part of their expenses. Generally speaking, your electrical engineering company can get refunds of up to 22% of your total QREs. However, the exact sum will depend on the state in which it operates.
Qualifying Costs and Activities
Costs for third-party contractors, raw materials, and supplies used in R&D projects are all regarded as QREs. You can also cover job titles like project managers, production managers, electronic designers, electrical project engineers, electrical engineers, circuit engineers, and C-suite. Moreover, qualifying activities for the R&D tax credit in the Electrical Engineering industry include:
Creating new PCBs;
Developing schematic designs;
Creating prototypes and new publications;
Assessing prototypes for functionality and customer requirements;
Evaluating products created in factories.
