TCG for CPAs


Did you know that the research tax credit is one of the most complicated sections of the entire tax code? In fact, the IRS declared it the most commonly reported “uncertain tax position” in 2010, 2011 and 2012. The R&D credit can be a valuable addition to any tax professional’s service line, but keeping up with everchanging rules, gathering the necessary documentation from clients and dealing with time-consuming controversy work often diminishes that value for busy CPAs.

At TCG, we do the heavy lifting, allowing our CPA partners to offer a full suite of Federal and State R&D tax credit services without spending valuable time and resources dealing with all the red tape.

What our clients are saying…

Having worked with Mike on five separate Research Tax Credit Studies (covering seven tax periods), I can truly attest to his professionalism and high level of customer service. Mike’s hands-on approach in working with our software developers, company management, and our tax return preparers has resulted in an efficient and seamless process.

Bart Ronan, Jenzabar, Inc.

Mike’s extensive knowledge of the research credit and its application to software developers was evident as he was able to quickly create a study workplan that resulted in an accurately and efficiently documented credit. His professionalism and ability to communicate with all levels of management and developers throughout the study exceeded expectations.

TCG has been able to bring valuable service offerings to my clients at a fraction of the price of other service providers. Working with Mike and his team just makes sense.
