How to claim your credits

When it comes to filing an ERC claim, there isn't just one way to do it. In fact, you have three different options.

Option 1


Here's the thing: we're payroll experts, and we know how to calculate Employee Retention Credits. There's a lot of rules that govern these calculations, and you don't want to mess them up and leave money on the table.

  • Credit is up to 20% higher on average
  • Extensive ERC program knowledge
  • Upfront fees or payments are not required
  • Free preliminary analysis
  • Industry-competitive pricing for services
  • A small service fee (but people say the faster, easier filing is totally worth it!)
  • We only deal with 941-X forms, and do not amend income tax returns (speak with your tax preparer or CPA to amend your returns)

This number is based on client averages and does not a guarantee any specific credit amount.

Option 2

Talk to your CPA

Most businesses already have a CPA. They are also able to help you file for the ERC program. But there are some things you need to consider before asking them for their help with your ERC claim.

  • Can help determine if you qualify for the program
  • Are already familiar with your business's finances
  • Will usually maintain tax-related documents
  • Can also amend your income tax returns to reflect the credits
  • Do not specialize in the ERC program
  • Are not payroll tax specialists
  • Rates are often more expensive
  • Unfamiliar with recent program changes
  • Usually calculate a smaller refund
  • No free preliminary analysis
Option 3

Do it yourself

If you don't want to pay anyone else to do it, you can always calculate and file for your ERC return(s) yourself. While there are definitely some pros to this method, it might not be the best idea.

  • 100% free to file with the IRS
  • No service fee since you're the one doing it
  • No need to worry about fraud or ERC scams
  • Can be completed at your own pace
  • Higher potential for mistakes leading to an audit
  • Risk of under or over claiming your ERC refund
  • Greater likelihood of IRS penalties
  • The cost of your time to calculate and file your claim
  • Over 200+ pages of tax code to interpret correctly
  • Lack of ERC program knowledge
  • No expert guidance or assistance

Benefits of the
ERC program

  • No limit on available funding
  • Does not have to be repaid
  • ZERO restrictions on how you use it
  • Can be claimed for 2020 and 2021

Basic requirements for the ERC program

In order to determine your own eligibility for the ERC program in any allowed quarter, your business must have experienced at least one of the following situations:

  • Revenue Reduction - At least a 50% decline of gross receipts in 2020 and at least a 20% decline of gross receipts in 2021 when compared to the same 2019 quarter.

  • Government Mandated Shutdowns - Full or partial suspension of your business operations based on local, state, or federal government mandates.

  • Supply Chain Disruptions - Government mandated shutdowns of your supplier(s) that affected your business operations and you could not find a suitable alternate supplier.

Please note that each of these requirements are very nuanced, and the IRS has issued specific guidance for each of them. To learn more, click the button below or visit the IRS's FAQ page.
