The R&D Coalition is committed to ongoing engagement with Congress and other policymakers to achieve the following objectives:

  1. Ensure favorable treatment of R&D expenditures in the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), including a robust R&D Tax Credit and a fair and efficient system of cost recovery for R&D expenses
  1. Repeal provisions in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that amended Section 174 of the IRC to require companies to amortize deductions for R&D expenditures over five years beginning in 2022
  2. Ensure that Members of Congress and their staff have accurate information about the positive impact of R&D investments on the U.S. economy and the way various policy proposals might affect those investments
