Don't Miss Out on Federal Tax Credits

Alternative Simplified Credit (ASC)

The Alternative Simplified Credit (ASC) is an alternative method used to compute R&D tax credits. Companies using the ASC method may be able to claim R&D credits even in cases where they do not qualify for traditional tax credits. Beginning in 2015, ASCs are also available on amended returns.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC)

Low-income housing tax credits are dollar-for-dollar federal tax credits that are allocated and administered by individual state housing agencies. These credits provide funding for the development costs of low-income housing projects by allowing investors to offset up to 70 percent of the present value of the costs incurred in developing low-income units for rental housing projects. Each state administers its LIHTC program differently and the specific requirements of the program change from year to year.
