Frequently Asked Questions

How much does Neo.Tax charge

Our fee is 2% of total qualifying R&D expenses we find and claim for you. We will only charge you after completing your claim documents. This is inclusive of the required forms as well as the study, at no extra charge. You can pay all at once or spread out over 12 months.

But my startup isn’t profitable…

Even if your company does not owe any income taxes, you can claim the R&D tax credit to reduce your payroll taxes, as long as your business earned less than $5 million in revenue in the credit year, and did not earn any revenue or interest income in any year preceding the 5 year period ending with the credit year.

How soon can I start getting money back?

The payroll-tax offset is currently available for qualified expenses incurred during the prior tax year. The R&D credit must be calculated and shown on a taxpayer’s federal income tax return with the portion of the credit applied to offset payroll taxes identified and elected when the original tax return is filed.
The offset is then available on a quarterly basis beginning in the first calendar quarter after a taxpayer files their federal income tax return.

What if I already have a CPA?

That is great! When your claim is complete we can send access to your forms to just you or also include your accountant, along with filing instructions. We are always happy to jump on a call with your accountant as well to answer any questions they may have.

What happens if I get audited?

We make sure your R&D Tax Credit is super kosher and transparent, so that even if the IRS disagrees with the amount of your credit, they won’t charge you penalties or interest, just the difference in calculation. Plus, we provide a study with your tax forms and we have a former IRS Agent pre-audit each one before filing.

What do you charge?

To create your claim and documentation, our fee is equal to 20% of the total credit amount we calculate.

How do I file my R&D Tax Credit Claim?

It needs to be submitted along with your annual corporate tax filing and you need to file:

  • Form 6765, Credit for Increasing Research Activities
  • Form 3800, General Business Credit. This form has a line that asks for the amount of Credit for Increasing Research Activities
  • Each state will have its own form if it offers a state R&D tax credit program. If you qualify for the payroll tax offset, you will need to make sure you account for it on Form 941, Employer’s Quarterly Federal Tax Return. You will also need to fill out and attach Form 8974, Qualified Small Business Payroll Tax Credit for Increasing Research Activities
  • Documentation requirements as stated in I.R.C. § 41
