What is the R&D tax credit?
The R&D (research and development) tax credit is a federal, and often state, tax incentive established to promote domestic innovation and production. For organizations of all sizes, from small startups to major corporations, this credit offers a dollar-for-dollar tax reduction for business operations including innovation, design, process improvement, and many other activities.
Significant savings are available for a range of qualifying activities; however, many businesses fail to claim the credit they are owed. In fact, only 1 in 20 eligible companies take advantage of it. Learn more about the R&D tax credit qualifications by checking out our FAQs.

What Our Clients Are Saying
"With Cunningham and Associates, you won’t just be in safe hands; you’ll save your money, too! Our company was looking to apply for R&D tax credits. A large national firm asked for a percentage-based fee, and honestly, it would have been a rip-off for us. These guys charged us a fixed fee and helped us unlock extra funds we weren’t even aware we had. We put that money back into our business, and we’re doing so much better than last year."
"We first tried to handle our R&D tax credit application with a CPA and soon realized we needed help. At Cunningham and Associates, we were assigned a partner who not only gave us immediate attention but also guided us through the process so we knew exactly what was happening every step of the way."
"As a manufacturing company, we were not sure if we would qualify for an R&D tax credit. We contacted Cunningham and Associates for a free audit, and they took over our case. They didn’t just fill out the paperwork for us; they made sure it was IRS-compliant and submitted on time. The communication was easy and stress-free. Thanks to them, we were able to get the funds we needed to reinvest in our business. They stand behind their work and take pride in helping clients. Highly recommend.”
