HOUSTON, June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- alliantgroup Director Greg Knarr will be speaking tomorrow, June 7, at 5:40 p.m. E.T. at an event hosted by the Michigan Association of CPAs. The annual West Michigan Management Information & Business Show covers topical issues such as the federal tax plans of the new administration and what business decision-makers need to know about cybersecurity. During his presentation, "The R&D Tax Credit: Permanent, Expanded and Open to Startups and Small Business," Knarr will discuss this popular tax credit and the significant changes that have made the credit permanent and expanded the number of businesses eligible for the credit.
"The regulatory and legislative changes to the R&D credit have had a huge impact on how businesses claim the credit, which affects nearly every business because this credit is the largest incentive offered at a federal level," said Dhaval Jadav, alliantgroup CEO. "At alliantgroup, we're committed to making sure small and mid-sized American businesses can claim the same valuable tax credits as larger corporations."
