How Do I Know If My Projects Qualify?
All activities must meet the requirements of The 4-Part Test 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.
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.
