Let us help you get the IRS Employee Retention Credit for your business.

Retention Credit

What is ERC?

The Employment Retention Credit is a stimulus program designed to help those businesses that were able to retain their employees during the Covid-19 pandemic. Established by the CARES Act, it is a refundable tax credit – a grant, not a loan – that you can claim for your business. The ERC is available to both small and mid-sized for-and nonprofit businesses. It is based on qualified wages and healthcare paid to employees.

Available for 2020 and 3 quarters of 2021, ERC is claimed on an amended quarterly payroll tax return (Form 941X). Once the IRS processes Form 941X, a check is issued to the taxpayer for the credit amount, plus interest. The statute of limitations for filing amended payroll tax returns is three years from the due date of the return,meaning, to apply for the Employee Retention Tax Credit for the 2nd quarter of 2020, the amended return needs to be submitted by July 2023. So, there’s still time to apply for the credit.

Businesses Do Not Have To Prove Loss of Revenue. 
In fact many businesses had a revenue increase and still qualified.
