Provides New Opportunity to Educate Ohio Manufacturers on the Research Credit


Cleveland – December 22, 2015 – Tax Credits Group, (TCG) is proud to announce its membership in The Ohio Manufacturer’s Association, (OMA). As such, TCG becomes an OMA Connections Partner.

The mission of the OMA is to protect and grow Ohio manufacturing. Through the OMA, manufacturers and manufacturing stakeholders work directly with members of the Ohio General Assembly, state regulatory agencies, the judiciary community and statewide media with the sole focus of improving business conditions for manufacturers in Ohio. The OMA offers its members education and support services in critical business areas including energy, environment, government affairs, human resources, safety and workers compensation, and tax, among others.

By aligning with the OMA, TCG looks forward to the opportunity to educate Ohio manufacturers about the credit opportunity and the options to claim it.

“With the permanency of the R&D credit, there is now a greater need for manufacturers to understand the long-term value in securing this incentive,” said TCG President Michael Krajcer. “The businesses we work with claiming the credit are able to further invest in new technologies, innovations and even job creation.”

Bethany Jones-Worner, TCG Managing Director, states, “With so many complexities and misconceptions out there on the research credit, we know that many Ohio manufacturers are overlooking it. Just like the OMA, we want to help the businesses in our own backyard grow and this credit is a means to do so.”

“We are pleased to add the subject matter expertise of TCG as a resource for our members,” commented OMA president Eric Burkland.
