The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed into law in late March 2020, provides economic relief to businesses and individuals. The stimulus package, which made $370 billion in funding available to small companies, contains a provision allowing certain employers to claim the Employee Retention Tax Credit for retaining employees during the crisis.

Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERC)

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a refundable payroll tax credit created under the CARES Act that rewards employers per employee they retained during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ERC is part of the greater pandemic relief fund that helps support employers amid the economic fallout caused by the Coronavirus. This payroll tax credit does not need to be repaid, unlike some of the pandemic-era PPP loans.

The ERC credit awards money for each employee in 2020 and even more per employee for each of the first three quarters of 2021.

How Do Businesses Qualify for the ERC?

Your US-based business may qualify for ERC if it meets the following criteria:

  1. Employee Count:
    • You employed less than 500 full-time employees in 2019.
  2. Business Impact:
    • EITHER: You suffered a significant decline in revenue in any quarter of 2020 or 2021 when compared to the same quarter of 2019.
    • OR: A government order caused you to significantly modify business operations.
NOTE: Businesses that file an income tax return deducting qualified wages before filing an employment tax return claiming a tax credit should file an amended income tax return to correct any overstated wage deduction. You can read more on this IRS page.

How Do Eligible Employers Claim Their ERC Refund?

Eligible employers can still claim the ERC tax credit today by retroactively amending their 2020 or 2021 payroll taxes with IRS Form 941-X (often referenced as an “ERC tax form”) to claim an ERC refund.

Omega works with eligible employers by reviewing the relevant financial records to calculate their expected ERC refund amount. Our talented team will complete and file the relevant IRS forms on the business’s behalf and prepare and retain all supporting documentation.
