Employee Retention Credit Update

The ERC (Employee Retention Credit) program established by the CARES Act has been curtailed by the US federal infrastructure bill that was signed into law this week.

The credit now only applies to qualified social security taxes paid thorough September 30, 2021 instead of December 31, 2021.

But don’t worry if you haven’t claimed those tax credits through September—you can do so retroactively. Check your payroll to make sure you’ve maximized the program, and check the accruals factored into your budget projections to make sure you’re not counting on refunds that were just eliminated.
