Employee Retention Tax Credit: A Hands-On Guide to Maximizing the Latest Tax Benefit (1 Hour Webinar)

Overview: 

The new Employee Retention Credit (ERC) offers a substantial refundable tax credit to qualified employers, including those who plan to apply for forgiveness of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

  • Maximize the tax benefits of ERC, together with PPP loan forgiveness and other government programs
  • Compute the ERC for 2020/2021
  • Claim the tax credit for 2020/2021
Objective: 

To provide tax professionals and qualified business owners with guidance on how to maximize the tax benefits of the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), together with Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness and other government assistance programs.
