So what is a qualified
small business, anyway?

A QSB, as defined by the IRS is a...
  • Business with less than $5 million in gross receipts;
  • Business with five or fewer years of gross receipts; and
  • One that has qualifying research expenses (QREs).

Check out how this company claimed their R&D Tax Credits to offset their Federal Payroll Tax.

The Bottom Line

When this software / hardware firm reached out to Strike, they were not sure they would even qualify for the R&D Tax Credit, simply because they did not believe their employees and contractors were performing "Research".

After conducting our qualification research, we found that 11 out of their 15 employees performed activities related to the research of their software and hardware products.

This company can now offset its employer portion of Social Security Tax owed to the IRS, on Form 941, for the next 23 months!
