Course Description

COVID Relief Bill Huge Win for Businesses!

The research and development (R&D) tax credit is one of the most significant and often misunderstood, incentives in the U.S. tax code. In a time when businesses are struggling to find the cash necessary to survive until the economy returns to its new normal, those who might qualify should take a closer look at eligibility, and those who have previously qualified need to understand how some of the COVID-19 relief legislation may interact with previous claims.

President Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 (CAA) into law Sunday, December 27. The CAA included a host of individual, business, payroll, disaster, and energy-related tax provisions, as well as two key tax extenders: 

The 179D Energy Efficient Commercial Building Deduction was made PERMANENT

The 45L Energy Efficient Homes Credit was extended through 2021! 

179D allows a deduction of up to $1.80/SF for new and renovated buildings and applies to private commercial property owners and designers/contractors working on publicly-owned properties. 45L allows a $1,000 or $2,000 tax credit to builders of energy-efficient homes and apartments meeting certain qualifying criteria. Additionally, the CAA clarifies that taxpayers whose PPP loans are forgiven are allowed deductions for otherwise deductible expenses paid with the proceeds of a PPP loan. Companies claiming the federal R&D tax credit can breathe a sigh of relief given that qualified research expenses must be capable of treatment as a Section 174 expense.

In this webinar, BRAYN's Director, Jason Villere, will cover what this means specifically for your business and how to maximize these highly lucrative tax credits and deductions.
