Plans for Two Major Changes to R&D Credits

This article dissects the new legislation from the IRS that requires more documentation for those filing research and development tax credits. The IRS gave a three-month warning, and these changes are expected to be forced on January 10.

Be sure to check out this link for more information and details on how to best prepare and position yourself through various tax legislation changes.
