Webinar: Employee Retention Credit

June 30, 9 a.m.

During this webinar, you’ll learn from IRS's Kathleen Fox about the Employee Retention Credit. This program offers a credit on employment taxes to business owners who participate.

Businesses that received PPP loans in 2020 or 2021 can still claim the ERC. While wages used to apply for PPP loan forgiveness cannot also be claimed as ERC wages, remaining wages may be eligible for the credit.

We will cover:

  • Employee Retention Credit
  • Eligibility for Businesses
  • How it works
  • Credit amounts and timeline
  • Claiming the credit
