Employee Retention Tax Credit
How Does This Apply To Me?
Different credit rules apply to companies who have 100 or fewer full-time employees, compared to those with 101-500 full-time employees. People who own (or have an ownership stake) in multiple businesses may qualify.
For example, if your qualified business has a wage expense of $100K per quarter in 2021, a credit in the form of a check from the IRS would equal about $70K. This would result in a refund of about $210K for businesses meeting the qualification requirements for all three quarters.
What Is The Employee Retention Credit?
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is an incentive created by Congress in March of 2020 and enhanced in December 2020; to offer financial help to businesses significantly impacted due to COVID. It applies to businesses with a significant decline in business revenues, or a business that operated at a reduced capacity due to a government-mandated shutdown.
