As a business owner, you may be aware of the Employee Retention Tax Credit – also known as the ERTC or ERC – and know that it’s something you can claim on your own. But you may have also heard that you can get the assistance of a trusted tax professional to help you claim it, and wonder why some employers choose that option. A tax attorney’s experience can make the entire ordeal much easier for you in the long run. 

How a Tax Attorney’s Expertise Transforms the ERTC Claim Process for Businesses

The ERTC is a refundable tax credit available to qualified employers for wages paid from March 2020 through late December 2021. It is “for businesses that continued to pay employees while shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic or had significant declines in gross receipts” during those early months of the pandemic, according to the IRS.

If you’re an eligible employer, you can file an amended Form 941X (Quarterly Federal Payroll Tax Return) to claim the ERTC for those previous tax quarters. But there is a bit of paperwork and documentation involved, so while it’s not particularly complex, the process can be involved and seem a bit daunting for business owners who already have a lot going on. 

That’s where a tax attorney can help. A tax professional’s expertise can transform the entire ERTC claim process for businesses by handling much of the detailed work for an employer. They can also help business owners avoid some of the pitfalls of claiming the credit incorrectly which could lead to problems with the IRS later. 

A good tax attorney knows how to deal with claiming tax credits already, and likely has specific experience claiming the Employee Retention Tax Credit. They know the exact documentation the IRS will be looking for and can take on most of the process for you. They may also be able to get your application done faster, which could prove to be crucial since a few important ERTC deadlines are coming up quickly.
