The R&D tax credit is a $22B government tax incentive to reward U.S. companies for their investments in innovations and technology advancements.
All expenses must undergo The 4-Part Test to qualify. These could be wages, supplies, software/cloud service, or even contract research.

Dollar For Dollar

The R&D tax credit reduces federal, state, income, and payroll tax liabilities. Meaning, if you owe $70K to the IRS and your federal credit is $70K, you will owe $0.

Federal & State

The Federal R&D tax credit is a permanent tax credit, thanks to the PATH Act passed in 2015. There are 36 states who currently have their own state-level version of the R&D tax credit. It's important to note, a business can qualify for both the federal credit and their respective state credit.

Generate Cash Refunds

The IRS issues cash refunds to businesses and their owners (pass-through entities) that engaged in R&D but did not claim the credit on a timely filed return. Businesses can retroactively amend their tax returns for the past three or more years, resulting in substantial cash refunds.

Apply to Payroll Tax

Start-ups may be eligible to apply the R&D tax credit against their payroll taxes for up to five years. Recent legislation has increased the allowable amount for start-ups to offset payroll taxes from $250,000 to a maximum of $500,000 per year.
Enacted as part of the Coronovirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securty (CARES) Act, qualifying small businesses can receive up to $26,000 per employee via direct payment.

$26,000 Per Employee

Businesses that meet the requirements and are eligible for both 2020 and 2021 could be looking at up to $26,000 per employee in employee retention tax credits.

What If I Claimed PPP?

You can still qualify for the ERC, despite claiming PPP. 

The amount of any PPP loans forgiven are simply backed out of the wage calculation. Strike experts ensure all of your calculations include any PPP forgiveness.

Full or partial shutdown
Supply chain disruptions

There’s Still Time to Claim

There is no limit to how many businesses can claim the credit or how much funds are available. But there is limited time to amend your tax returns and receive the credit.

Let’s get you qualified.

In just a few short minutes, our Tax Credit Specialists will be able to get you qualified and on your way to collecting the money you deserve.
Schedule Time With An Expert

Some things should be automated, but some really shouldn’t.

We know an accurate credit analysis requires human discovery. Fully automated systems are unreliable and tend to leave money on the table.
We’ve built our proprietary software to help ease the burden of the tax credit filing process, not replace it. Designed to give clarity and visibility during your engagement with Strike, we streamline the discovery and data collection process, leaving the expert piece up to the experts, not a machine.
