The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a refundable credit that could be worth tens of thousands of dollars to small businesses that need the money. The Employee Retention Credit was added to the law by the CARES Act in March 2020. Since then, it has gone through multiple changes. Then, it was repealed retroactively by the Infrastructure Act of 2021. But what does all that mean for your clients? The ERC rules were subject to substantial ebb and flow, but many businesses still may qualify and don’t even know it.
