Therapeutic Discovery Tax Credit Program: Application Process Webinar

Monday, June 28 2010
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

The recently enacted new Therapeutic Discovery Project Credit program was created as a unique opportunity for companies in a loss position to earn tax credits for up to 50 percent of many of their R&D activities, and at their option, exchange these credits for a grant, on 1:1 basis.  The final application (Form 8942) for this new program is expected to be released by the IRS by June 21, 2010.

MassBio members are invited to join BIO’s third webinar on the Therapeutic Discovery Tax Credit Program titled "Therapeutic Discovery Tax Credit Program: Application Process" which will provide up to date information on regulatory guidance, implementation of the new program, and the application process. The webinar is complimentary to MassBio’s biotechnology company members, and will take place on Monday, June 28th at 1 p.m.
