ERC Credit Causes Confusion For Many Small Business Owners

SAN FRANCISCO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 3, 2022 / The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) program is one of the last hopes for small business owners to claim new-found money within their existing business. It is also one of the most confusing and complex to figure out and calculate correctly. There are multiple ways for a company to qualify including revenue loss, shutdowns, or disruptions due to COVID-19. The problem? There are so many ERC credit rules and regulations which make it near impossible for companies to figure out on their own. Good news? Qualifying businesses can receive up to a $26,000 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) refund per W-2 employee on payroll during 2020 and 2021, and have up to three years to file amended 941-X returns to claim the ERC refund credit.

The ERC credit is a valuable tax credit and is money the business has already paid the IRS in quarterly payroll taxes during the 2020 and 2021 business tax filing years. A business has up to three years into the future to file an amended IRS Form 941-X for each quarter they qualify for, in order to claim the ERC tax credit.In early 2020, many businesses scrambled to apply for the SBA EIDL loan and the PPP loan programs and had no knowledge of exactly what the ERC credit program was. In March 2020, the 116th Congress enacted the ERC as part of the The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), a $2.2 trillion economic stimulus bill signed into law by former President Donald Trump on March 27, 2020.
