Frequently Asked Questions
Why am I just hearing about the Employee Retention Tax Credit?
During the Covid outbreak accountants have been bombarded with new tax laws and regulations. The CARES act of December 2020 greatly expanded those businesses who qualify for the ERTC and made millions of dollars available to a huge percent of the business population effected by the virus.
Is this a loan? Do I have to pay it back?
No, this is not a loan. It is a tax credit refund that you keep.
Will this affect my PPP Loan forgiveness?
No, if your business received a PPP loan the PPP Loan amount is deducted from the ERTC calculations and will be kept separate as required.
How is the ERTC calculated retroactively for 2020?
We will calculate your credit based upon gross wages paid during your shut down/lost revenue times. The PPP Loan amount is deducted from your qualifying wages. The remaining wages are then capped out at $10,000 per employee. The credited amount is divided in half, making the refund amount a maximum of $5,000 per employee for 2020.
How is the ERTC calculated for 2021?
We will calculate your credit based upon gross wages paid during your shut down/lost revenue times. The PPP Loan amount is deducted from your qualifying wages. The remaining wages are then capped out at $10,000 per employee. The credited amount is multiplied by 70% making the refund amount a maximum of $21,000 in 2021.
