Our fee structure has been shown to minimize IRS scrutiny when our client’s R&D tax credits have come under examination.

Intrepid Advisors simply knows how to deal with the IRS and state tax authorities . We resolve questions quickly and preserve R&D tax credits for our clients. Free audit support is included with every R&D tax credit study!
