In the guest chair:
Bennett Thrasher Senior Manager, Betsi Barrett joined us in-studio today to talk about federal and state tax credits and when businesses should start looking at which ones they may be able to take advantage of. Betsi also discussed the recent changes to the federal Research & Development Tax Credit that will allow those qualified to take the credit on past returns more easily than in the past.
And it’s Friday, so Adam G. from SocialSave.com joined us for Work Hard / Play Hard!
