Don't Wait. Secure The Employee Retention
Tax Credit For Your Business Today

What is the ERC?

The Employee Retention Credit (ERTC) was approved under the CARES Act for all businesses to keep employees on the payroll.

The ERC Program is a refundable tax credit per employee by an eligible employer. RECEIVE UP TO $26,000 PER EMPLOYEE!

Who is Eligible For the ERC in 2020 & 2021?

The ERC was not widely used until March 2021, when updated IRS regulations made this type of COVID-19 Relief more accessible. In short: thousands of businesses who once picked between the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and ERC can now possibly use both, by amending their Quarterly Form(s) 941.

Criteria #1:  Must Issue a Formal Payroll

Employers must file Form 941s and W-2s. (Sole-proprietors are ineligible)

Criteria #2: Eligible Employee Headcount

Employers must have below a certain number of full-time employees in 2019.  (NOTE: this is not the same as full-time equivalents – FTEs)

– 2020 program: fewer than 100 full-time employees     (unlimited part-time employees)

– 2021 program: fewer than 500 FT employees

 (unlimited part-time employees)

Criteria #3: Must Meet one (not necessarily both) of:

A: Reduce Business Receipts (Sales for a Calendar Quarter)

For example: A business with $100k in sales for Q2 2019 vs

 – Q2 2020: eligible with < $50k in sales (or 50% lower)

 – Q2 2021: eligible with < $80k in sales (or 20% lower)

B: Must have been fully/partially shut down by government order

A “Stay At Home” order for non-essential businesses, or a capacity limit for a restaurant, would meet this test.  (The order is likely jurisdiction specific.) You can also have the same, or even more sales, and still qualify.

The Employee Retention Credit will be claimed against the employer’s portion of employment taxes (including Social Security and Railroad Retirement). If your ERC exceeds the amount due, it is then viewed as an overpayment and is refundable.

We had a large amount of money owed to us via the ERC from the IRS. ERC Today made the process easy and we have our money sooner than expected. Couldn’t be happier to be giving this review!

The COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for businesses all over the world, including my own, as I own multiple dental practices in multiple states. So, I was happy and surprised to learn about the employee retention tax credit to say the least. The ERTC filing was a bit confusing to me, but thankfully not to Stephen and his team at ERC Today! They successfully got my business a tax credit of over $20k+ per employee. The application process with this company was simple and straightforward and I am so happy I found out about it. Just wanted to share so others in a similar situation can take advantage of it like I did!

It was recommended that I apply for the ERC through this company. Everything about the application process was easy. I was anxious to get news of whether or not I qualified, so the waiting part was difficult. This company is professional and handled things efficiently. Patience is the name of the game. I would recommend ERC today to anyone applying for ERC tax credit.

I was completely ignorant of what the ERC was until a friend and fellow restaurant owner in my city mentioned it to me. He connected with Stephen, who explained what the ERTC was and if/how I qualified for it. Thankfully I did! Stephen and the ERC Today team made the entire process quick and easy, and the money I received really provided an extra sense of security during these difficult times.

I’m writing this review after submitting everything for the Employee Retention Tax Credit, and although I haven’t received any money yet I just wanted to make it known that the staff are amazing! They made everything about the ERTC clear and easy to understand. I’ve already received confirmation from the IRS that funds will be coming through soon. I can’t recommend them enough, thanks!
