What is section 174?

Section 174 is a new part of the tax code effective beginning with tax year 2022. It changes the way profits are calculated for your corporate taxes.


Section 174 has an impact on all startups. It will especially impact startups that have started to generate revenue (especially global startups).

Essentially, it can make it so startups with revenue and no actual profits, owe a significant amount in taxes.

This is because Section 174 requires that R&D expenses are not immediately deducted but are spread out over a period of time (5 years for US; 15 years for International).
