Startup Tax Credit

There is a new tax credit (up to $250K per year & $1.25M total per company) which allows 2016 R&D expenses to generate a tax credit to be used against 2017 payroll taxes.


  • 2016 qualifying expenditures include wages and costs related directly to software development
  • For each dollar of qualified expenditures, your company receives a payroll tax savings of up to 7 cents in the next year for federal payroll taxes, and depending upon the state, may also save in state income taxes
  • If you had a net loss and didn’t owe taxes in 2016 you can still get a tax benefit for future years
  • Note: your company must have had zero revenue prior to 2012 and no more than $5 million in gross receipts in 2016 to use this credit

For more information please contact or your tax advisor.

Is there a “right” price for your business?

Setting a price for your product or service can be tricky. If you price it too high then you’ll scare potential clients away. If you price it too low, you’ll miss out on profit for your business and clients may not view your business as having as much “value” as a higher priced product or service.

Learn how to set the right price for your product or service with Simple Finance for Entrepreneurs. The next cohort starts on February 28th! Sign up HERE .
