Small Business Employee Retention Credit History 2021-- ERTC Qualification Record Launched

Jun 1

ERTC Today, a tax credit consulting firm, has released an online tool to help small business owners determine if they are eligible for the 2021 Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC).

The newly launched tool also allows participants to secure consultations to discuss their eligibility for the tax credit and the amount they can expect to receive. The ERTC doesn't have to be repaid. Any business with fewer 500 employees (both non-profits as well as start-ups) may qualify.

This latest announcement is intended to raise awareness about the recently approved tax credit. It was initiated by the IRS to assist small businesses in maintaining their staff during these challenging times, via payroll cost refunds.

During the pandemic, many businesses have struggled with staff and supply shortages, closures, and ongoing uncertainty. Over the past two years, lawmakers have created several relief programs to assist business owners and employees in these difficult times. One such program is the ERTC, which was introduced in March 2020 as part of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).

Businesses may be eligible for relief if they were forced to suspend their normal operations in part or completely in 2020 or 2021 due to a governmental order, if they conducted trade or business during those years, and if their employers were in operation during either qualifying year.

No matter if the business owner received assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), refunds can be up to $28,000 per employee. Many businesses had previously chosen the PPP. However, IRS regulations have made it more accessible to all businesses.
