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.
