Why do you need an R&D study?
The R&D Credit is an IRS Tier 1 issue – that means if you get audited, you better have good documentation and justification for the Credit. Consider your R&D study as good insurance which serves as proof of your R&D work.
Documentation: Contemporaneous timekeeping data is considered by many as the gold-standard of evidence to protect your R&D credit. eTaxConnect uses data from your version control system to get this information and compile a report which is completely audit-ready.
