The IRS released final regulations concerning the application of the R&D tax credit to “internal use software”

The IRS released final regulations concerning the application of the R&D tax credit to “internal use software” (i.e., software which is developed by or for the benefit of the taxpayer). Examples of internal-use software include software for use in human resources, support services and financial management. Software that is not for internal use needs to meet a lower threshold to qualify for the credit. These final regulations also include examples to illustrate the application of the process of experimentation requirement to software. Click here to view the full regulations.
