Small Business Worker Retention Credit History 2021-- ERTC Eligibility Report Launched

Jun 1

ERTC Today, a tax credit consulting firm, has released an online tool to help small business owners determine if they are eligible for the 2021 Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC).

Participants can also use the newly launched tool to get consultations about their eligibility for the tax credit, and what amount they can expect. The ERTC does not have to be paid back, and any business, with fewer than 500 employees, both non-profits and start-ups, may potentially qualify.

The tool, along with more information about the ERTC, can be found at http://localrecoveryhelp.com

This announcement is to increase awareness of the newly approved tax credit. It was initiated by the IRS to assist small businesses in maintaining their staff during these challenging times, via payroll cost refunds.

Many businesses were affected by the pandemic and have had to deal with staff shortages and supply problems, closings and uncertainty. Lawmakers have passed several relief programs over the past 2 years to help business owners and staff cope with these difficulties. The ERTC is one such program, introduced as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020.

Businesses could be eligible for relief if they had to suspend or complete their normal operations in 2020 or 2021 because of a government order. This applies if they engaged in trade or business during these years and their employers were operating during the qualifying year.

No matter if the business owner received assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), refunds can be up to $28,000 per employee. Many businesses had previously chosen the PPP. However, IRS regulations have made it more accessible to all businesses.

ERTC Today is endorsed by GL Digital, a Phoenix-based digital content marketer and enterprise software company dedicated to supporting small businesses. In addition to tax consultation, GL Digital provides many small business other resources, including advice on social media management software, domain name registrars, webinar tools, and video hosting platforms.
