The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) was approved under the CARES Act. It is a tax credit that rewards businesses for keeping their employees working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ERTC is essentially a tax rebate issued by the IRS in order to partially reimburse eligible employers for payroll expenses.

The maximum amount an employer can receive is $26,000 per qualifying employee. As you can see, you could hugely benefit from this tax credit program!

Retroactively Claiming the ERTC

The CARES Act includes two stimulus programs for employers – the ERTC and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). In 2020 and early 2021, at the height of the pandemic, eligible business owners were limited to one of the programs. Most chose the PPP because it provided faster financial assistance.

Now, the IRS is allowing qualifying PPP loan recipients to retroactively claim ERTC funds as well. Our job is to help you determine if you are eligible for this government program.


There are very specific eligibility requirements for claiming the Employee Retention Credit.
