Employee Retention Credit (ERC) works with Churches, Schools, & other privately owned tax-exempt organizations
What is ERC?
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a payroll tax credit designed to reward businesses for retaining employees during COVID-19. The credit was initially signed into law March 2020 as part of the CARES Act. The credit was later expanded upon with the Consolidated Appropriations Act in December 2020 and the American Rescue Plan Act in June 2021.
This credit does not exclude tax-exempt or non-profit type organizations. It is specifically designed to reward businesses who paid W-2 wages, filed 941 payroll tax forms, and was impacted by COVID-19.
At ERC Pros, we pride ourselves on extensive research and 100% in-house process to help religious organizations understand and maximize the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).
The ERC is our firm’s sole focus and we have been selected by multiple Diocese as a trusted resource to understand and file the ERC.
ERC guidelines include a significant amount of technical details around qualification and calculation for the credit. Ensuring that the ERC is properly understood and executed for each quarter and time period is a daunting task to take on and many Religious Institutions have incorrect or outdated information. Our team of tax experts knows how to ensure each credit is properly calculated and funded, leaving clients in the best possible position before the IRS.
