Architecture firms constantly face design challenges as they evaluate design solutions and alternatives – from conceptual design to the construction document phase of a project. However, the company may be unaware that the expenses associated with the development of many of these designs may allow for valuable R&D incentive programs. Let TaxIncennovations help you get onto the path to valuable R&D tax credits for your company today!

Below are some of the examples of qualifying R&D activities but are not limited to the following:

  • Developing construction documents

  • Designing and developing master plans

  • Involving in value engineering activities

  • Developing conceptual designs and ideas

  • Designing and developing site features and orientations

  • Building information modeling (BIM) activities and computer-aided design (CAD)

  • Evaluation and collaboration between consultants on means and methods for constructability

  • Developing new or innovative designs to meet energy efficient specifications or LEED certifications

Prior to 2016, small to mid-size companies who qualified for the R&D tax credit were sometimes limited to utilize the credit by Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).  With the new regulations put in place in 2016, small to mid-size businesses can offset their AMT with the R&D tax credit.
