R&E Tax Regulations

The U.S. government policy through associated tax law – Sections 41 and 174 of the Internal Revenue Code – seeks to promote the global competitiveness and growth of American industry.

Recent revisions to the Tax Code and regulations have broadened the application of the law to improve the opportunity for traditional industries, such as electric utility companies, to take advantage of R&E investment tax benefits.

Tax recovery of R&E Qualified Research Expenditures (QREs) can have a significant impact on the organization’s bottom line, providing accelerated cash flow and contribution to after tax net income through:

  • Section 174, deductions provide a cash flow NPV based on the marginal corporate tax rate of 35%.
  • Section 41, credits may provide up to 20% dollar savings.
