Eligible businesses can claim an Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) on their qualified wages.

For all quarters in 2020, the deadline to apply for the ERC refund is April 15, 2024, and for all quarters in 2021, the deadline is April 15, 2025

How Much Is the Tax Credit Worth?

The Employee Retention Tax Credit was expanded significantly for the 2021 tax year.

Under the CARES Act of 2020, qualified employers, including those who took a loan under the initial PPP, can claim a 50% ERC refund on qualified wages paid between March 15 and December 31, 2020. The maximum credit is $5,000 per employee.

Under the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA) of 2021, the ERC grants are equal to 70% of eligible employee wages. The maximum credit is $21,000 per employee ($7,000 per quarter).

Once you’ve filed your claim, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has stipulated a 20-week minimum turnaround on the ERC refunds.
