The RIX® Technology utilized an IRS approved system for web-based documentation of Research Tax Credits that has been in use by a major U.S. corporation under a formal IRS Research Credit Recordkeeping Agreement since 2006.

RIX® (for Resource Information Xchange) is an interactive, web-based information management system that provides easy-to-use, activity-based information requests, facilitates uploading and storage of relevant contemporaneous documentation, and streamlines the review & analysis of information gathered. The primary functions of the application provide an interactive Research Credit knowledge exchange for the taxpayer; allow remote reporting of Research Credit data by the taxpayer; analyze, test and document qualified activity and financial information; and facilitate remote Research Credit review by IRS. RIX® Technology provides a valuable conduit for the client to ask real-world questions and evaluate the credit worthiness of individual activities or projects to maximize tax credits. It is a great system that was proven very successful in its initial implementation.
