Lunch and Learn – Dollars for Design: Optimizing the R&D Tax Credit for Architecture

July 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


This lunch and learn is hosted at the AIA New Orleans Center for Architecture and Design by Jason Villere, of BRAYN Consulting LLC.

You are paying too much in taxes. Over 70% of architecture firms and their owners are not claiming a very powerful tax incentive – the Research & Development Tax Credit. Are you missing out on dollars for design that could give you a competitive advantage? This course will cover eligibility requirements and how to leverage available information and technology within time tracking software to easily access this lucrative incentive.

Attendees are eligible for 1 continuing education unit (CEU).

After attending this lunch and learn, you will be able to: 

Understand the four-part test and basic exclusions to R&D, including the main components of funded versus non-funded research

Debunk the myths of the R&D tax credit

Learn how to optimize time and project tracking to maximize tax credits

Identify target-rich environments for R&D activities

Attendance is free for both AIA members and non-members. 

Please RSVP on this page if you plan to attend. Thanks!
