Is there still time to claim employee retention credits for our church?

Yes! The first expiration date for the credits is April 15, 2024, for any 2020 credits.  2021 credits can be claimed through April 15, 2025.  That said, the IRS is still taking 6-12 months to process most credits, so the cash is not fast.

Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) rules make tax refunds available for churches that paid employee wages and/or health insurance in 2020 and 2021. Get up to $26,000 per employee for your ministry.

The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) program is available from Q2 2020 – Q3 2021. Even though this time has passed, this does not impact the ability of your church to claim ERTC retroactively. 

Fill out the survey to find out if your ministry is eligible.

At the end of the survey, you’ll also have an opportunity to schedule a no-cost, no-commitment appointment to learn about how your ministry can go about claiming the credit.

The survey is designed to give your ministry an initial idea of whether or not you’re eligible.  If you’d like to skip that, just click the link below to schedule a no-cost, no-obligation appointment to learn more about the ERTC and our filing services
