What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)?

The Employee Retention Credit is a tax credit that businesses can claim to help offset the cost of paying workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. To be eligible, businesses must have experienced a significant decline in revenue or been forced to close due to government restrictions. The credit is worth 50% of eligible wages paid to employees, up to $10,000 per worker. Businesses can claim the credit for wages paid from March 13, 2020, through December 31, 2020. For more information, businesses should contact their local tax authority or visit the IRS website. (

How can the ERC help your business retain employees during COVID-19 pandemic times and beyond?

Many businesses are struggling to retain employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ERC can help your business keep its workers by providing resources and support. The ERC can connect you with local and national organizations that can provide financial assistance, mental health resources, and other services. The ERC can also help you create policies that will support your employees during this difficult time. For example, you might consider offering flexible work hours or remote options. You might also provide additional paid time off for employees who need to care for sick family members. By working with the ERC, you can develop a plan to support your employees during the pandemic and beyond.

What are the requirements to be eligible for the credit?

In order to be eligible for the credit, taxpayers must have purchased a qualified home on or after December 15, 2017. The home must be used as the taxpayer's primary residence, and the taxpayer must not have owned a home in the past three years. In addition, the home must cost less than $900,000. Taxpayers who meet these requirements will be able to claim a credit of up to $3,000 on their federal tax return.

How do you claim the credit on your taxes?

As a general rule, you can claim the credit on your taxes if you incur expenses related to the pursuit of higher education. This includes tuition and fees, as well as other eligible expenses such as books and supplies. To claim the credit, you will need to fill out and submit IRS Form 8863. Additionally, you will need documentation of your eligible expenses, such as a 1098-T form from your school. If you are claiming the credit for yourself or your dependent, you may also need to provide other documentation, such as a transcript or diploma. Once you have gathered all of the necessary documentation, you can then complete and file your tax return.
