The 2017 Anchin Construction & Development Forum

Research and Development (R&D) tax credits are a powerful though underutilized tool that can make a big difference for small to mid size construction companies. Many recent industry innovations including BIM (Building Information Management) modeling and GPS laser plotting along with a push for more energy efficient, “greener” designs have transformed development projects within the industry. Due to the increasingly technical nature of system and structure design, many activities performed by companies in the construction industry may qualify for R&D tax credits.

Anchin’s professionals understand the important issues that arise when examining potentially qualifying construction industry projects and related expenses. Our industry in accurate, highly defendable tax credit calculations. Our dedicated construction team includes audit, tax and advisory professionals with years of experience identifying issues and solving problems for every type of business within the construction industry subsectors, including the following types of services:

  • Civil/site engineering
  • Demolition
  • Electrical engineering
