Agriculture and the Research & Development Tax Credit

The agriculture industry is often overlooked when evaluating eligibility for the R&D Tax Credit. However, farms today are typically operating subject to razor thin profit margins and are consistently evaluating ways to increase crop yield and their bottom line.

The costs associated with these efforts can often be recouped through the R&D Tax Credit. ABGi has significant experience in the agriculture industry which allows us to maximize the R&D Tax Credit you are entitled to while minimizing the time needed from your business.
