Employee Retention Tax Credit – It’s Not Too Late

By now, most churches have heard of or even claimed Employee Retention Tax Credits (ERTC). Those that have taken advantage of the credit have seen hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in benefits for retaining employees in 2020 and 2021. ERTC has been a lifeline for so many churches that struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Have you pursued it yet?

Congress’ Employee Retention Credit (ERC) rules make tax refunds available for churches that paid employee wages and health insurance in 2020 and 2021. Is the ERC now in the rearview mirror? No. ERC remains as hot as ever with only 50% of the churches claiming this credit. Your church may qualify for the ERC.

Don’t miss the opportunity of claiming the Employee Retention Credit. 

If your church hasn’t taken advantage of this stimulus opportunity, take the quiz below to see if your church is eligible…

Here’s just one example of potential savings: A church with 10 employees each making $40,000 per year in wages could get a $50,000 ERC for 2020 and $210,000 ERC for 2021!
