R&D Tax Consultants – Cheyenne (WY)

Cheyenne (WY) business owners are constantly looking for new ways to improve profitability, reduce costs, and leverage new opportunities. In terms of cost reduction, the focus is often on operational efficiencies, production optimization, and new technology. However, many are surprised to learn about the significant savings opportunity available through the Research & Development (R&D) tax credit. The credit provides a dollar-for-dollar reduction of federal tax liability for qualifying activities. Unfortunately, many Texas companies miss out on millions in savings due to the misconception the credit is only for large companies with formal R&D functions. This is not true, in fact, many businesses already qualify for the credit based on current business activities.

Cheyenne R&D Tax Credit Process

  • Phase 1: Initial Consultation and Benefit Estimate – During this initial phase, our R&D tax credit experts educate the taxpayer on the R&D tax credit and evaluate the eligibility of the company’s operations. A large part of this initial consultation revolves around the Internal Revenue Code’s 4-part test requirements of the R&D credit, and whether the company’s activities successfully meet those requirements. Key aspects discussed include company operations (historical and present), company financials, employee roles and responsibilities, major projects, project documentation, and relevant contacts.
  • Phase 2: Qualification and Quantification – Once an agreement is reached, the focus turns to an investigation of the facts identified in the first phase. This often includes project interviews, quantifying related wages and expenses, and determining eligibility for the credit. Through oral interviews and review of documentation, the credit is finalized, and the appropriate tax forms are completed and made available to the taxpayer’s tax preparer.
  • Phase 3: Final Report – Following the completion of the final credit figure and applicable tax forms, we may have some follow-up questions and requests, however, the bulk of the lift is out of the taxpayer’s hands. During this final phase, we prepare a final report outlining the specifics of the study process, findings, applicable regulations, and relevant documentation, figures, and exhibits. While this report is not required in advance of claiming the credit, it is an important piece of documentation to support the credit claim and it will be the first line of defense if the IRS ever audits the claim.

Wyoming – State R&D Tax Credit

Unfortunately, the state of Wyoming does not offer a state-level R&D tax credit. However, the federal tax credit is still available to Wyoming companies.
