Looking for ERTC tax credit 2022 opportunities? Whilst the ERTC expired in 2021 the benefits extend through 2024, and we have the qualified team and ERC tax credit calculator to assist you claiming your credit.
The good news: ERTC tax credit 2022 opportuities do still exist, so if your startup or small business lost revenue because of COVID-19, you may still qualify for the Employee Retention Tax Credit (or ERC), one of the largest tax credits available to business owners under the CARES Act.
Nearly 70% of small and medium businesses qualify for the ERC due to loss of revenue or because their business (or supplier) was impacted by a government mandate.
The signing of the Infrastructure Invest and Jobs Act last November effectively ended the credit for fourth-quarter wages in 2021. However, the IRS states that “employers may still claim the credit for prior quarters by filing an applicable adjusted employment tax return”, also known as the 941-X Amended Quarterly Payroll Tax return.
The IRS will accept this amended return up to three years after the initial filing, extending the timeline to participate in the ERC program through the end of 2024, allowing for ERTC tax credit 2022 claims.
You can claim up to $5,000 in refundable tax credits for each employee on their payroll in 2020 and up to a $7,000 credit per quarter for each employee in 2021 (excluding Q4).
For the first three quarters of 2021, the maximum credit available to eligible employers is $21,000 per employee ($7,000 x 3 quarters).
