The Research and Development (R&D) incentive provides a Federal and Arizona income tax credit for increased research and development activities conducted in this state. This tax credit has become wildly popular in Arizona over the past few years. Also being discussed will be the Domestic Production Activities Deduction. Manufactured, Produced, Grown or Extracted (MPGE) qualifying production products can generate a substantial deduction using the DPAD. Join us as we welcome Randy Eickhoff with Acena Consulting, to discuss this popular tax credit and the benefits that come with filing for the credit and to help better understand how to assess, calculate and monetize this important DPAD tax deduction for US companies.

Randy is the president and founder of Acena Consulting, LLC. They are a specialty tax consulting firm with one goal - to lower your federal and state income taxes through the use of research & development tax credits, specialty deductions and tax planning. Given that one of the largest expenses business owners incur each year is the income tax they pay, lowering that number each year can create additional jobs, higher growth and higher cash flow for the business and owners.
