FOOD & BEVERAGE
DID YOU KNOW?
- Due to the dynamic nature of the food and beverage industry, many companies are prime candidates for tax breaks.
- Companies developing new or improved food or beverage products, manufacturing processes, and packaging can qualify for sizable federal and state R&D tax credits.
- The R&D tax credit is based on “qualified research expenses” (QREs) – for every dollar spent on QREs, you can earn up to 8.0% in federal tax credits! Additionally, over 40 states offer similar R&D tax incentives that can double benefits in some cases.
