Vaccine R&D Tax Credits
Ever since the great influenza pandemic of 1918, governments have been trying to motivate pharma companies to invest more in R&D to protect against this and other deadly diseases. Vaccinology has seen significant technological advancement thanks to the ongoing research activities that various federal and state R&D tax incentives make possible. One example is the development of mRNA vaccines that are so new they have only just passed clinical trials.
Therefore, if your business works on mRNA stabilization methods, new adjuvants, or any other advancements in vaccine production, you may use the Vaccines R&D tax credit to recoup the expenditures. Considering the state’s tax regulations where you conduct business, this incentive allows you to offset the maximum of 22% of overall QREs.
