What does RD tax credit mean? The RD credit means that organizations that invest in qualified research and development activities to incentivize innovation and growth (as defined in Internal Revenue Code section 41) may be eligible for a general business tax credit.
Purpose of Form Use Form 6765 to figure and claim the credit for increasing research activities (research credit), to elect the reduced credit under section 280C, and to elect to claim a certain amount of the credit as a payroll tax credit against the employer portion of social security taxes.
Businesses can claim the RD Credit by filing IRS Form 6765, Credit for Increasing Research Activities. As part of the process, they need to identify qualifying expenses and provide adequate documentation that shows how these costs meet the requirements under Internal Revenue Code Section 41.
Certain costs incurred during the development or improvement of products, processes, techniques, formulas, inventions or software that meet specific IRS requirements are considered qualified research expenses1. Examples include employee wages, contract research expenses and supply costs.
How does the RD tax credit work? Typically, 6% to 8% of a companys annual qualifying RD expenses can be applied, dollar for dollar, against its federal income tax liability.

Under regular tax rules, RD costs are capital expenses and arent deductible until the research project is abandoned or deemed worthless. However, if your RD costs qualify for special tax treatment, you have the option of deducting the cost a portion at a time over several years through amortization or a write-off.
The Alternative Simplified Credit Method produces a smaller RD credit percentage but allows more companies to participate by substantially reducing the difficulty of calculating the base period in the Regular Research Credit method.
Calculate RD expenditure credit Reduce any relevant subcontractor or external staff provider payments to 65% of the original cost. Add all costs together. Multiply the figure by 13% to get the expenditure credit. Enter this figure into your tax return.
RD tax credit calculation using the traditional method is based on 20% of a companys current year QREs over a base amount. First, however, the fix-based percentage must be obtained by dividing the QREs for tax years during a base period by the gross receipts from the same period.
The 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) contained a provision that effective January 1, 2022, costs incurred for RD activities would no longer be allowed for immediate deduction. Instead, current law stipulates that costs associated with RD activities will have to be capitalized and amortized over 5 or 15 years.
