Frequently Asked Questions

What is the R&D Tax Credit?

It’s the government’s way of rewarding businesses developing products and technologies. The government actually wants to provide cash relief for your efforts, regardless of profitability. With R&D credits Startups can lower their payroll costs, meaning more runway to develop, hire, and grow.  TaxTaker has simplified the process of claiming these credits, ensuring you’re never leaving money on the table. What would an extra $10k, $50k, $200k mean to you?

Who can claim the credit?

Essentially, any company that is developing or improving upon technologies in the United States.


The IRS does have a four-part test to qualify for the program, as follows:


First, activities be technical in nature, which is short for based in the hard sciences or computer sciences.


Next, activities must be intended to develop a new or improved business component of the taxpayer. These can be products, processes, formulas, inventions, software, and technologies.


Third, there must be some risk of failure for the taxpayer.  While you think you might very well get to the outcome, the IRS wants to make sure your endeavor is demonstrating and overcoming uncertainties. 


Last but not least, they want to see a demonstration of a process of experimentation, or in other words trial and error. Have you evaluated one or more alternatives to achieve a result, what were the capabilities or potential methods required to achieve the result and the appropriate designs? 


In other words can we do it? How can we do it? And what’s it going to look like?

How much could my company save?

It’s all relative to your internal R&D spend. As a good rule of thumb, most companies will receive somewhere in the neighborhood of up to 10% of their qualifies expenses.

Does my company need to be profitable?

While revenue is a great indicator of business success, the government isn’t concerned about profitability, but rather what your internal technical spend looks like across development wages, contract research, and supply and prototype costs.


For example if you have $500,000 in salaried engineers developing your B2B saas software, you could likely receive up to $50,000!
