There’s still time to claim Employee Retention Credit funds in the form of tax credit refund2 from 2020 and 2021

It’s tax season: the time of year when we focus on the income, payroll and deductible expenses of the previous twelve months. 

But this year it can be worth your while to look even further back—all the way back to 2020, when COVID began impacting virtually every business. In response to the pandemic, federal legislation was enacted to help employers keep employees on the payroll during the business downturn.

The ERC: a misunderstood and underexploited source of refunds1

That legislation resulted in the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), part of the American Rescue Plan2, — is a federal tax credit designed to help small business owners. ERC refunds1 don’t need to be repaid and can be used for any purpose2

Many small businesses may qualify1 for up to $26,000 per W-2 employee1 (excluding W-2 business owners), in ERC refunds2 in the form of a tax credit and possible refund2—but less than 25% of businesses who may qualify1 have filed for their ERC assistance. 

There are several reasons:

  • The ERC filing3 process can be complex and time-consuming
  • Changing eligibility requirements have resulted in confusion
  • Many CPAs and payroll firms are unfamiliar with the ERC or its eligibility1 requirements

The ERC is another source of future cash in the form of tax credits2 for your business—and we don’t want Behalf’s valued customers to leave any of it on the table.

Making it easy2 to claim your ERC refunds1 in the form of a tax credit and possible refund1

The calendar may read 2022, but you can still claim your Employee Retention Credits retroactively for 2020 and 2021. You may file amended Form 941s for up to three years after each quarter—even if you’ve already filed for 2020.

Sound complicated? Behalf is making the ERC filing3 process simple.
