How do I know if my projects qualify?

All activities must meet the requirements of The 4-Part Test in order to determine whether the associated project expenses can be included in the credit calculations.


The research must impart new or improved functionality, performance, reliability, or quality to a product, process, formulation, invention, software, or technique.


The activity undertaken must rely on the principles of “hard” sciences including physics, biology, engineering, chemistry, or computer science.

Eliminating Uncertainty

From the outset of the project, the development team must encounter technical uncertainty regarding the optimal design, methodology, or capability to achieve project specifications.


The activities constitute a process of experimentation with the intent to resolve the technical uncertainty through the systematic evaluation of alternate solutions.

The 4-Part Test is the most challenging and extensive part of any R&D Tax Credit Claim. It is imperative to have an experienced hand to ensure that your R&D Tax Credits are properly calculated and substantiated. Strike has the tax experts you need to maximize your benefits.

AdRizer LLC

Strike did an excellent job identifying, documenting, and capturing the R&D tax credits for AdRizer. Their work was very much appreciated and took most of the burden from our staff. I sincerely appreciate the level of effort, professionalism, and client service the STRIKE Team provided throughout this project.

Xevant LLC

The services rendered by STRIKE to Xevant exceeded expectations. The team efficiently managed a highly complex set of circumstances with utmost professionalism by industry experts and veterans of the tax code. The services were completed on time and resulted in an unexpected but fortuitous outcome. With 3 years of past R&D tax credits captured, we will continue using STRIKE for all future R&D tax credit management. From day 1 through completion of the project, we felt as if we had the best in the business overseeing our project and they made us feel as if we were always their top priority despite the many customers they manage. I would recommend STRIKE to any company looking for a competent R&D service provider.
