Employee Retention Credit: The biggest and most-misunderstood tax incentive

That PPP loan you took out a couple years ago? You know, to keep staff employed and your doors open?

Well in late 2020, Congress passed the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020, which modified the tax credits available under the CARES Act. Read the IRS notice.

The upshot is you're eligible to receive $5,000 for every employee you kept on staff throughout 2020. And if they stayed on board through 2021, you are eligible to receive $7,000/quarter for each employee. Add that up and we're talking about a potential $26,000 credit for each employee who was on your payroll during 2020-2021.

Want to know more?

REGISTER NOW for the webinar at 8 a.m. tomorrow, as alliantgroup Associate Director Johnathon Johnson presents a special 1.5-hour webinar, Employee Retention Credit: The biggest and most-misunderstood tax incentive.

Employee Retention Credit: The biggest and most-misunderstood tax incentive

If you took out a PPP loan during 2020 and kept your employees on staff, you could be eligible for an Employee Retention Credit to the tune of $5,000 for each employee who stayed through 2020. 

What’s more, if those employees stayed through 2021, you could be eligible for $7,000/quarter for EACH EMPLOYEE.

These credits are sent to you in the form of a check from the IRS, to use any way you want. In fact, the Employee Retention Credit is one of the largest credits available to business owners, delivering thousands of dollars in credits for each employee with qualified wages.

Join us Wednesday, August 24, as alliantgroup Associate Director Johnathon Johnson presents a special 1.5-hour webinar, Employee Retention Credit: The biggest and most misunderstood tax incentive.

Designed for dealer principals and owners, Johnathon will share information on the single largest tax break available to American businesses. This incentive was recently changed by Congress so more businesses can take advantage of it.

Johnathon will walk you through misconceptions and how you can use the credit to potentially generate a substantial cash refund.
