Your business could receive a refund of up to $26,000 per employee

Claim your credit for businesses that suffered financial losses during the pandemic, but kept their employees on.

What is ERC?

ERC eligibility was expanded and extended as part of the Consolidated Appropriations (CARES) Act, 2021 to include employers who received loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), along with those who did not. Now, you may be able to claim an ERC credit.

If your business experienced a decline in total receipts in 2020 and/or 2021, but you retained your employees, you may be able to secure your payroll tax refund through our trusted partners*.

It was a pleasure dealing with SmartBiz for our ERC...It was very good, very helpful, and went very smoothly.
