President Calls for Permanent R&D Tax Credit and 17% ASC Rate. Previous budgets from the President called for elimination of the Regular Incremental Credit in favor or a permanent Alternative Simplified Credit. The 2014 budget, by contrast, calls for retaining both the regular and simplified credit options, increasing the value of the simplified credit, and making both credit approaches permanent. This would be a huge benefit for U.S. businesses, which - should the budget be adopted by Congress - would be able to much more accurately plan for the favorable impact of R&D credits in their annual tax and financial plans.
