Digital Fireside Chat: 174 Capitalization Rule Changes -- How Capitalization of R&E Expenses Will Affect Taxpayers Presented by Tri-Merit
Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023 | Noon-1 p.m. | Online | Complimentary for Employees of Member Firms

Most businesses feel unclear addressing Section 174 amendments introduced by the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA).
For tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2021, all Section 174 research and experimentation (R&E) expenditures must be capitalized and amortized. This rule significantly impacts the AEC industry regardless of whether your business is currently claiming the research and development (R&D) tax credit.

Join Presenters Barry Devine and Leslie Osborne of Sustaining Member Tri-Merit as they explain how capitalization of R&D and R&E expenditures will impact taxpayers should the long-awaited resolution of this congressional issue not arrive in time. Learn how these changes could significantly impact your bottom line:

  • Interplay with the R&D Credit
