COVID-19 and Your Taxes

ERC & PPP

Earlier this month, President Joe Biden signed into law the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act. Among the provisions included in the package is an extension of the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).

The ERC is a refundable tax credit that employers can claim for keeping their employees on the payroll. As a result of the American Rescue Plan, employers can now qualify for ERCs for each quarter of 2021 that their operations were fully or partially suspended due to a COVID-19 government order, or their gross receipts were less than 80% of their gross receipts for the same quarter in 2019. For each quarter of 2021, employers could receive up to $7,000 in ERCs ($10,000 in qualified wages X 70%), allowing for a maximum ERC of $28,000, per employee.

Garland Chamber member, Carr, Riggs & Ingram CPAs, have provided information about the difference between the ERC and PPP processes. Click below to find more information.
