St. Croix Economic Development Corporation will present a "Conversation on R&D Tax Credits" at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, April 29. Valerie Fedie of Wipfli will discuss tax breaks for research and development expenses.

Based in Eau Claire, Felie consults with a wide range of Minnesota and Wisconsin companies to maximize their R&D tax credits while also helping clients overcome challenges and leverage opportunities with new product and process improvements. She has particular expertise in R&D tax credit incentive projects, IRS Section 174 deductibility analysis, and federal and state audit defense support.

Changes to IRS regulations and recent developments now provide greater opportunities for companies to qualify for the credits, she said. Definitions of R&D activities are broader, and as the list of qualifying activities grows, it is much easier for a wide array of companies to qualify many of their activities as R&D.

The St. Croix EDC webinar is not only intended for business owners, presidents, CEOs, CFOs, and controllers, but also for bankers and advisers to business owners so they are aware of the opportunities.
