Amortization expense related to capitalized software for the years ended September 30, 2021, 2020, and 2019 was $12.3 million, $9.6 million, and $7.2 million, respectively. The majority of this amortization was recorded within our "cost of revenue" on our consolidated statements of operations.
The amortization totals above include $2.4 million and $0.6 million of costs which were capitalized and subsequently written off during the years ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. No comparable amount where recorded for the year ended September 30, 2019. These costs were related to contracts that were deemed unrecoverable. This expense was recorded within "cost of revenue" on our consolidated statements of operations.
The entire disclosure for research, development, and computer software activities, including contracts and arrangements to be performed for others and with federal government. Includes costs incurred (1) in a planned search or critical investigation aimed at discovery of new knowledge with the hope that such knowledge will be useful in developing a new product or service, a new process or technique, or in bringing about a significant improvement to an existing product or process; or (2) to translate research findings or other knowledge into a plan or design for a new product or process or for a significant improvement to an existing product or process whether intended for sale or the entity's use, during the reporting period charged to research and development projects, including the costs of developing computer software up to the point in time of achieving technological feasibility and in-process research and development acquired in a business combination consummated during the period.
