As you begin to evaluate potential service providers, it’s important to remember that there are significant differences between R&D credit and 179D advisors in the marketplace. Sometimes taxpayers are not immediately aware of how those differences may impact their experience from start to finish. Working with a qualified firm with a team of experienced specialists can abate many issues that could arise during an audit. With over 90% success rate (better than the industry standard), and decades of experience, we fully understand IRS audit techniques and procedures.

Choose a Firm You Can Trust
KBKG has put together a set of questions to ask when evaluating a provider that will assist taxpayers in making an informed choice that delivers the results they deserve.

What are the actual capabilities of the provider you are using?

  • Does the advisor demonstrate thought leadership in the marketplace? Are they up to date with current tax law and trends?
  • Do they have the resources to stay on top of all the tax issues?
  • Will the advisor be around a few years from now if you happen to get audited?
  • Will they be willing to support you in that audit?
  • What is their Audit success rate?
  • What do other clients say about their experience with the service provider?
  • Does the provider operate ethically?
