Employers: The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a tax credit for employers. Take advantage of the new COVID-19 Employee Retention Credit (ERC) while it’s still available. If your business or non-profit continued to pay employees on payroll in 2020 and 2021 despite  the pandemic,  governmental orders, and supply chain problems, you have an excellent chance of up to $26,000 per employee.  Many
businesses did not qualify at the beginning of the program, but may qualify under revisions of the Cares Act.  You can still apply.

The ERC is claimed by amending your business's quarterly IRS payroll tax returns and is based on how much money the business paid its employees in 2020 and 2021. A business may be eligible for the ERC if it had a significant decline in revenue in any quarter, from the beginning of the pandemic through the third quarter of 2021 (called the Gross Receipts Test). A business may be eligible for the ERC if governmental orders limited its operations by forcing the business to close, required capacity limitations, or restricted its business functions in other ways (called the Partial Shutdown Test).

You Can Take Advantage of the ERC if You Experienced any of the Following:

  • Full or partial shutdowns
  • Decrease in hours of operation
  • Interruption of supply chains
  • Reduction in ability to deliver goods and services
  • Shifting hours to increase sanitation
  • Inability to work with your vendors
