New Guidelines Issued for ERTC, PPP Loan Forgiveness Program
Posted by Nate Smith on Tue, Sep 14, 2021 @ 09:00 AM

A significant number of organizations across the nation are likely eligible for the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC), but since few have claimed it, the tax break may expire early.

If passed, the proposed $1 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will end the pandemic-era tax break three months early, on Sept. 30 rather than the current date of Dec. 31, 2021. Eligible organizations would still be allowed to claim the ERTC for 2020 and the first quarter through the third quarter of 2021, but there would be no credit for the fourth quarter.

Posted by Ray Gandy on Thu, Jul 29, 2021 @ 12:00 PM

Avoid These 4 Pain Points With the Employee Retention Tax Credit
Posted by Nate Smith on Wed, Jul 28, 2021 @ 02:04 PM

With the modifications made to the incentive, organizations continue to evaluate how to maximize the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). The ERTC is a special incentive created within the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Securities (CARES) Act that encourages employers to retain their workforce during periods of economic disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It provides immediate reductions to payroll taxes and cash refunds for credits in excess of payroll taxes, for both commercial and not-for-profit employers. A business must have been subject to government shutdown orders or experienced a significant decline in gross receipts to qualify.

Earlier this year, the ERTC was expanded through the American Rescue Plan Act to potentially cover more organizations and situations.
