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.

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.

How Not-For-Profits Can Navigate the Employee Retention Tax Credit
Posted by Nate Smith on Tue, Jun 8, 2021 @ 03:50 PM

The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) was enacted as part of the early COVID-19 stimulus measures, and can be claimed through Dec. 31, 2021 by eligible employers who retained employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. Earlier this year, the ERTC was expanded through the American Rescue Plan Act to potentially cover more organizations and situations.

Not-For-Profits Must Carefully Manage Gross Receipts for Employee Retention Credit Eligibility
Posted by Nate Smith on Thu, Apr 1, 2021 @ 11:44 AM

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) was originally enacted as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The ERC was extended and expanded by the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA), and then again by the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. Eligible employers can obtain the ERC with respect to wages and health plan costs paid during periods of disruption brought about by the coronavirus pandemic. The most common way to become an eligible employer under the CARES Act, the CAA, and the ARP Act is to satisfy a gross receipts test. Until recently, not-for-profit (NFP) entities faced significant uncertainty about the manner in which gross receipts is defined for purposes of the ERC. Although the CAA provided this clarification, NFP entities now must consider unusual planning decisions in order to maintain ERC eligibility.
