  • Paid for improvements on a leasehold facility

Hiring Incentives

Work Opportunity Tax Credit

This Federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) was created in the mid-’90s by the Small Business Job Protection Act of 1996 and the Welfare-to-Work Tax Credit of 1996 to incentivize employers to hire and retain from certain target groups. Employers have claimed about $1 Billion each year under the WOTC Program. They can employ an unlimited number of qualifying individuals and follow a few simple steps to claim the tax credit.

You could qualify for the WOTC, especially If your business falls in one of these categories:

  • Restaurants
  • Retail
  • Manufacturing
  • Grocery

Nearly every business can benefit from the Employer Based Tax Incentives even candidates that aren’t qualified for the WOTC are often entitled to other tax incentives. Each time the Act passes, more companies are eligible for Employee based Tax Incentives, which enlarges the WOTC and other similar programs.

Employee Retention Credit

Covid and Disaster ERC

Under the CARES Act, if your business kept its employees on the payroll during the pandemic, it may be eligible to get the ERC tax credit. The ERC outlines the various eligibility requirements, but mistakes can delay your refund. Our ERC experts will apply for and get your ERC tax credit refund on your behalf.

You may qualify for the ERC if your business:

  • Was negatively impacted by Covid-19
  • Had limitations in commerce, travel, or group meetings
  • Paid federal payroll taxes and has an EIN
  • Hasn’t claimed the refund yet 
  • Has received PPP funding

Businesses may be eligible for 2020 employee retention tax credits of up to $5,000 per employee and $7,000 per quarter for Q1-Q3 of 2021 with a total maximum of $26,000 PER qualified employee! (2020- (Q1-Q3) 2021). Our service partner will help you see if you qualify for the credit and get you the credit! For example, a business with 100 qualifying employees would receive a $260,000 credit!


Research and Development Tax Credits

Our team includes professional IP attorneys with engineering backgrounds who comply with the IRS-required Comprehensive Project by Project Approach method. You can still take advantage of missed tax credits as the IRS lets companies go back three open tax years!

To see if you qualify, ask yourself:

  • Were you profitable in the last 4 years, or are you expecting to be profitable this year?
  • Do you have an average annual payroll of over $1M?
  • Is your company a C Corp, or S Corp/Partnership?

You might not have realized that your company qualifies for the R&D tax credit! If your company engages in activities and spends time developing or improving a process or product, engineering, designing, testing, or programming are considered Qualified Research Activities (QRE)!

Common Questions

I’ve already owned my commercial property for years and years-is it too late to get money back?

No-it’s not too late! The IRS says: “A taxpayer may conduct a cost segregation study on used property and then recompute its depreciation deductions for prior years”. We employ the “Catch Up” method to help clients who have older properties recoup their missed accelerated depreciation.

I want to save money with cost segregation-how do I get started?

We’ll perform a simple and quick initial consultation and generate a feasibility report to discover cash flow and NPV benefits (NPV: Net Present Value). This lets our experts determine your current tax status and assess your current tax status along with your business plans to see if you would benefit from our study.

What about compliance requirements?

No problem! Our platform is tested to fight fraud, reduce risk and obey compliance requirements.

Can’t my CPA just do all this for me?

The average CPA doesn’t have the time to delve into these tax incentive areas and often need some expert guidance-we come alongside to help your CPA help you.

I own a U.S. manufacturing company, how do I get my manufacturing incentive benefit?

One of our R&D Specialists will conduct a preliminary consultation over the phone to identify any potential QRE’s (Qualified Research Expenditures). If we identify any QRE’s, we then obtain your authorization to start working on your behalf. We don’t charge a fee until after all the credits are identified and utilized with your accountant.

I want to reduce my property taxes and get money back on what I’ve already paid. How do I get started?

 It’s easy-we just need your most recent property tax assessment and your authorization for us to work on your behalf. There’s no risk and we only get our fee when we get savings and/or refunds for you!

Why can’t my accountant just get the ERC tax credit for me?

With over 70,000 pages of tax code, it’s not reasonable for every CPA to be an expert on all of it. We specialize in this tax area and understand all the complexities involved in finding out your eligibility and calculating your refund.

Won’t I just have to pay the ERC credit back later?

No! Since it’s a refund of your payroll taxes, it’s YOUR money to keep! You get to decide what you do with it!
