Is Your Tech Startup Overpaying this Tax Season?

Free Webinar for Tech Startups

We are hearing more and more about the federal R&D tax credit. 
As we approach tax time, are you checking to see if your business is eligible?


Register for our March 5th webinar to find out if you are eligible to take advantage of this program!

What is the credit? Both federal and state credit available to any company or person that incurs R&D expenses in the U.S.
Why is it available?  The aim is to promote investments in technology & hiring.
How do I learn more?  CTC is hosting a webinar featuring Chad Paul from
BDO (Formerly Smith and Gesteland) on the R&D Tax Credit on March 5. 
Feel free to reach out with any initial questions you may have, but please remember that CTC consultants are not tax professionals.  Find a professional that is a good fit for you.
