Taking the right approach.

Companies spend significant time and effort collecting and compiling data and aggregating the documentation necessary to support federal and state research and development (R&D) tax credits.  Often this effort is the undertaking of the scientists, engineers, and product development team members with competing priorities.  As a result, many companies understate and/or under-document their credits, losing some or all of them on examination.
