$$ Credit Alert! Claiming the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC)
The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, signed into law on December 27, 2020, by former President Trump, significantly enhanced the benefits of the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). Not only did this legislation make retroactive changes to the credit, it also enhanced and extended the credit into 2021.
Many companies, especially those who participated in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, can now capture credits for wages paid during 2020 and receive even higher benefits for wages in 2021. Like most tax initiatives, the ERTC comes with complexities and interaction with other tax provisions.
Here is an example of how powerful the ERTC can be:
50-employee company (38 on health insurance) + 5-week Shut Down in 2020 = $163,500 ERTC in addition to their PPP loan.
