Tax Incentives and Credits

Staying current in state tax credits and economic development incentives is a daunting, if not an insurmountable task. This is seen in studies that have shown that at least 50% of tax credits and incentives are not claimed each year.

Our State and Local Tax professionals are fully committed to assisting you in identifying and securing the tax credits and incentives available to you and your business.

Tax Incentive Services

Some of the ways we can assist you and add value to your organization include:

  • Review state tax returns for tax credit opportunities that may still be available to you under state statute.
  • Identify economic development incentives available to your company before the commitment to expand or move is made.
  • Analyze tax credits and and/or incentive packages offered by competing state tax jurisdictions.
  • Evaluate your company's status in meeting a state's recurring compliance requirements.

Our experience professionals have been extremely successful in representing clients of all sizes and across numerous industries in matters such as those described above. The insight, innovation, and experience of Schneider Downs' State and Local Tax professionals can assist you in navigating the labyrinth of state tax credit and economic development incentives.
