Small Business Staff Member Retention Credit History 2021-- ERTC Eligibility Report Launched
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 does not have to be paid back, and any business, with fewer than 500 employees, both non-profits and start-ups, may potentially qualify.
The tool, along with more information about the ERTC, can be found at http://localrecoveryhelp.com
This announcement is to increase awareness of the newly 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.
Many businesses were affected by the pandemic and have had to deal with staff shortages and supply problems, closings and uncertainty. Over the past two years, lawmakers have created several relief programs to assist business owners and employees in these difficult times. The ERTC is one such program, introduced as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020.
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.
