The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a tax credit available to employers to help them retain their employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. If your business has been impacted by the pandemic and you’re struggling to keep your employees on the payroll, the ERC could provide much-needed financial relief.
To qualify for the ERC, an employer must meet one of the following criteria:
The employer must have experienced a decline in gross receipts of at least 20% compared to the same quarter in the prior year.
The employer must have been fully or partially suspended from operations due to government orders related to COVID-19.
If you meet either of these criteria, you may be eligible to claim a credit of 50% of the qualified wages paid to your employees, up to a maximum credit of $26,000 per employee. The credit is available for wages paid from March 13, 2020 through December 31, 2020.
There is a sense of urgency to qualify for the ERC, as it is only available for a limited time. If your business has been impacted by the pandemic, it’s important to act quickly to determine your eligibility and start taking steps to claim the credit.
