“R&D Tax Credits for the Construction Industry: A Washington Update”
Dean Zerbe of alliantgroup will update members of CFMA regarding both proposed and recent
legislation from Washington, D.C. relating to the R&D Tax Credit and Section 179D Energy Efficient
Buildings Tax Credit.
Many construction companies are unaware that the government offers generous research and
development (R&D) incentive programs. Other companies are aware of the R&D tax credit, but fail to
take full advantage due to misconceptions about the types of research and development activities that
qualify. The fact is that a broad range of common construction industry practices will qualify for the
credit under the Internal Revenue Code’s definition of R&D.

May 12
“Leadership”
The Chapter’s May and final meeting of the season has traditionally been when scholarships are
awarded to deserving students, and as such, the speaker for that meeting has been someone who has
been able to leave both award recipients and attendees with a unique message regarding the topic of
leadership.
Syndicated radio talk show host, journalist, and political columnist Howie Carr will lend
his insight and unique views on the topic of leadership. With examples from the context of the levels of
local, state, and federal politics, he will be sure to provide attendees with original and entertaining
observations and opinions.
