Indirect Export Sales – Do they Qualify for the IC-DISC?

Tedder Schwarz

In many introductory discussions with potential IC-DISC clients, a common topic is whether indirect export sales qualify.  In many cases, companies do not directly export products themselves; instead they may use a distributor, freight forwarder or another type of U.S. company as a method to export.  When using an indirect method of exporting, it is important to know the rules to determine whether a company’s export sales qualify for use by the IC-DISC. 

Are you Amending your 2016 Return to Claim the Payroll Tax Credit?

David Seibel

Recently, the IRS issued Notice 2017-23, which provides guidance on the R&D payroll tax provision enacted in the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act passed in December 2015.  For tax years beginning after December 31, 2015, taxpayers that have less than $5 million in gross receipts for the current tax year and no gross receipts for any tax years preceding the five tax year period ending with the current tax year can apply their R&D credits to offset up to $250,000 in payroll tax liability. This option benefits true startup companies that may not have a lot of federal income tax liability.
