Scott Engberg, VP - CHM Industries, Inc.

I spend every waking day thinking and strategizing about how to improve my products, beat the competition and lead my team. I have little bandwidth and time to process the implications and, dare I say, potential benefits of the corporate tax structure. We go to work, design industry leading products, pay our taxes and go home.

Having Tax Credit Collective on our team has opened my eyes to previously unknown tax savings that we are offered just for doing our daily work of creating new products.

Never pushy, always willing to listen and full of ideas... this is the kind of partner you want in your corner. If you own or run a business that develops products, I highly suggest connecting with Tax Credit Collective so they can help you find the money you have been leaving on the table for years.
