FAQ

1. What is a business tax credit?

 A tax credit is a dollar for dollar value that is used to offset corporate income taxes owed.

2. How are tax credits different from tax deductions?

Tax credits are applied on the taxes owed and tax deductions are deducted from your gross income. Simply put, in the state of GA, $6,000 tax credits are equivalent to $100,000 in tax deductions.

3. Doesn’t my CPA already do this for me?

Each tax credit program has its own specifications and jurisdictions. Generation of the tax credits is not a part of general accounting.   You need a tax credit specialist to fully take advantage of the 90+ tax credits available to you. Our team of specialists works with your CPA to make sure that you get the maximum  amount of tax credits.

4. Why do you need to work with my CPA?

TRACS GROUP is not a CPA firm, we strictly specialize in building tax rebates and credits, and we do not prepare tax returns for you. We do work with your CPA to make sure you utilize all the tax rebates and credits we generate for you.

5. This sounds too good to be true, what’s the catch?

There is no catch.  Tax credits have been around for decades. The names of each program change constantly along with requirements and laws. TRACS Group keeps up with the changes ensuring that you get the most out of each tax credit now and for years to come.
