Employee Retention Tax Credit Service

Identifying and maximizing the tax incentive opportunities resulting from the CARES Act

Receive Up to 50% of Qualified Wages in Employment Tax Credits

The employee retention tax credit (ERTC) is available to eligible businesses who retain employees and pay them certain eligible wages anytime between March 13, 2020 – December 31, 2020. The fully refundable tax credit is equal to 50% of wages (up to $10,000) paid by the eligible businesses financially impacted by COVID-19.  Although the maximum credit per individual employee is $5,000, there is no aggregate credit limit per employer.

The ERTC is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) enacted March 27, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on the economy, public health, state and local governments, individuals, and businesses. This law provides many benefits to businesses in addition to the ERTC including; tax payment deferrals, grants and forgivable loans.
