Let’s get started!

Before you begin, you may need to gather the following items:

  • Last year’s tax return (only your income is needed.  We do not need your spouse’s income)
  • A list of any patent applications where you are an inventor
  • An email address for your patent agent or attorney (optional) so that we may email them your calculation status
  • A reference number or docket number that your patent attorney or agent uses to keep track of  your invention (optional)
  • About 5 minutes of your time

(note – if your patent will list more than one inventor, each inventor must fill out this form separately)

**Warning – we are in pre-beta testing only.  Use at your own risk.
