Understanding the Employee Retention Credit

The ERC is a federal tax incentive designed to help businesses keep their employees on payroll during challenging economic times. It offers financial relief to qualifying businesses, allowing them to receive up to $26,000 per employee in tax credits. Despite its potential benefits, many business owners are still in the dark about this valuable program.

Eligibility Criteria

To qualify for the ERC, a business must meet certain criteria:

  1. The business must have experienced a significant decline in gross receipts (at least 20% reduction) in any quarter in 2020 or 2021 compared to the same quarter in 2019.
  2. Alternatively, the business must have been partially or fully shut down due to a government order related to COVID-19.

How the ERC Works

The Employee Retention Credit is calculated based on a percentage of qualifying wages paid to employees during the eligible period. The ERC percentage and maximum credit amount vary depending on the year:

– For 2020, the ERC is 50% of qualifying wages, up to $5,000 per employee.
– For 2021, the ERC is 70% of qualifying wages, up to $7,000 per employee per quarter, with a maximum of $28,000 per employee for the year.
