Ocean Beach News Article: Employee Retention Tax Credit Information & Update

Employee Retention Tax Credit Information & Update

"Are you aware of the recent tax law changes from The CARES Act? The CARES Act has once again been amended by Congress and now allows small businesses in San Diego (and nationwide) to now be able to qualify for not only the PPP and the EIDL, but also the ERC - Employee Retention Tax Credit.  It means businesses here in San Diego (and nationwide) can qualify for up to $26,000 per eligible W2 employee through the ERC - Employee Retention Tax Credit, even if they received the PPP and/or the EIDL. It is a tax credit from the IRS, not a grant nor a loan. The ERC is pretty complicated, and the requirements have changed over time, so you may have heard different things that make you think small businesses can’t benefit from it.
