The end to the Employee Retention Tax Credit may be upon us!
The Latest Update from Congress…
On January 31, the House passed the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act of 2024 framework. The Senate has yet to vote on this proposed legislation. Nobody actually knows when the deadline will be at this point, however it is likely ERC will end early regardless. We have a limited window to get new ERC claims submitted, or wrap up an existing case during this waiting period and in the event that the finalized deadline is a date beyond today. Filing fees will not be billed initially, however once an ending date is announced, clients will be billed as long as your file was submitted prior to the (unannounced) new deadline.
I know your time is valuable, but please take a few minutes to read this and a few more minutes to consider the impact this type of cash injection could have on your business.
Because of the complexity and lack of understanding by traditional CPAs, many business owners have been told they don’t qualify.
We have partnered with Occams Advisory, a tax compliance firm made up of CPAs and independent tax attorneys. They have filed over 1,700 claims for clients in 49 states covering all types of businesses and most industry groups.
What is the ERC?
This is a unique opportunity that numerous business owners unfortunately overlooked during the years 2020 and 2021. However, Congress has now made it clear that the majority of business owners who employed individuals between March 2020 and September 2021 are eligible to benefit from this opportunity. With over a trillion dollars allocated specifically for this tax credit, it is crucial to note that unlike the PPP, this is not a loan but rather a substantial financial aid available for utilization. Payments of up to $26,000 per employee, with an average of approximately $20,000 per employee, are currently being disbursed. When considering the potential financial impact, the figures quickly accumulate. Learn more about the ERC. Please watch the video on this page.
