For IHIF Members Only – Therapeutic Discovery Tax Credit Webinar

As part of the new healthcare reform law, a new Therapeutic Discovery Project Credit program was created that would encourage investments in new therapies by small biotech companies. This new provision creates a unique opportunity for companies without tax liability to exchange their credits to Treasury for a grant. So, companies in a loss position would be able to receive funds immediately.

Importantly, the new law also provides for an accelerated implementation timeline, with program creation slated for late Spring, 2010. And, since this new 2-year program is limited to a total of $1 Billion, it is imperative that small biotech companies have a firm understanding of the program, upcoming Treasury rules and the application process.

BIO invites you to join us for a webinar to learn more about this critical new program for biotech companies. The webinar, titled “Therapeutic Discovery Tax Credit Program 101”, is complimentary to BIO members , and will take place on Friday, April 16 th at 1pm EDT.
