What is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)?

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is a refundable tax credit designed to encourage businesses to keep employees on their payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic. The credit is available for wages paid to eligible employees during specified periods in 2020 and 2021. Businesses can claim the ERC to reduce their employment tax liabilities and receive a refund for excess credits.

Questions? Dayes Law Firm Has The Answers

The IRS will be looking for information to determine eligibility for the creditThis information will include financial information including gross revenue, profits and loss statements, payroll information and tax returns including income and payroll returnsIn addition, the IRS will want information about PPP loans, if taken, and if the taxpayer uses the Government Shutdown Test, all the appropriate governmental orders that affected the business.

The IRS has not released the reasons for why any particular business was picked for an auditHowever, there might certain indicators of whyIf the amount of the credit does not make sense with the previously provided payroll returns this is likely a red flagIf your business was in an area that was overly affected this might be a red flagThe luck of the draw was not on your sideThe IRS picks a small percentage of returns to be audited even if there does not appear to be any discrepancies.

Picking the best representatives who have experience in not just audits but specifically ERC audits is a good start.  The ERC includes a lot of very technical qualifications that if they are not understood, the taxpayer is likely to lose the audit even if they should qualify.  Having representation that understands the nuances of the law as well as the various notices put out by the IRS is the quickest way to success.

There are few choices left to the taxpayer at this pointFirst the taxpayer can appeal the case to the Appeals Division of the IRSAn appeal can take upwards of 6 months for the Appeals Division to take up the claimThe Appeals Division has the ability to negotiate a “settlement” with the taxpayer as they are required to undertake an analysis that includes litigation risksAnother option is to file a refund action in CourtThis can happen after an appealAnother option is to not fight the findings and either pay off the debt or if nothing is owed to let it goIf the taxpayer is unable to pay the entire amount of the taxes owed, the taxpayer can potentially enter into an agreement with the IRS to pay off the debt in installments.
