Claim ERC in North Carolina

ERC Guaranteed Helps North Carolina Businesses Claim the Maximum Employee Retention Credit (ERC) (Up to $26,000 Per Employee) 

The overwhelming majority of businesses and organizations in North Carolina were subject to COVID-19-related government mandates. Through the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), companies in North Carolina that were affected by government restrictions can claim a refund on their payroll taxes. Your ERC could be as much as 3 to 5 times (3x – 5x) your PPP. At ERC Guaranteed, our team helps clients claim the maximum ERC in North Carolina. If you have any questions about the ERC tax credit application process, we are here to help. Call us at (888) 210-8870 to schedule a strictly confidential initial appointment with an ERC specialist.

An Overview of the Employee Retention Credit (ERC)

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was passed by Congress and signed into law by the president in March of 2020. The CARES Act is a complex economic support package. The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is one of its most important—but least well-understood—provisions. A significant tax refund—far beyond PPP benefits—may be available for North Carolina businesses through the ERC. Here are three important things to understand: 

  1. The ERC is Available for Up to Six Quarters: The ERC is available for the last three quarters of 2020 (Q2, Q3, and Q4) and the initial three quarters of 2021 (Q1, Q2, and Q3). Businesses in North Carolina can apply for the tax credit for all six quarters. 
  2. The Maximum Total Tax Credit is $26,000 Per Worker: The employee retention credit is based on the amount of qualifying wages paid to employees. The maximum total benefit per employee for the six collective quarters is $26,000.
  3. You Can Still Get the ERC if Your Business Got the PPP: North Carolina businesses can qualify for the Employee Retention Credit regardless of whether or not they received Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds. The ERC may be worth up to seven times the amount of a North Carolina business’ PPP funds. 

How to Claim the ERC in North Carolina 

If you own or manage a company in North Carolina, it is essential that you take advantage of all of the available tax credits. The pandemic and recent economic uncertainty have been major challenges for many businesses. Companies should claim the tax refund that is due to them under federal law. Businesses in North Carolina can qualify for the ERC based on: 

  • A full or partial government shutdown order (restrictions); or
  • A significant loss in revenue compared to the same quarter pre-pandemic. 

You only need to prove one of those two things—meaning you do not need any loss of revenue to qualify for the ERC. Quite the contrary, the overwhelming majority of businesses and organizations in North Carolina can qualify for the tax refund on the basis of a government restriction, such as: 

  • Heightened cleaning or sanitizing requirements; 
  • Additional personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements; 
  • Social distancing regulations; 
  • Capacity restrictions; 
  • Supply chain disruptions; and
  • Work-from-home or stay-at-home orders. 

Our area of expertise is the Employee Retention Credit. It is where we put our sole focus. Our North Carolina ERC specialists have access to the federal, state, and local government shutdown orders that businesses can use to prove that they qualify for the tax refund. It takes as little as 60 seconds. 

What Businesses Can Qualify for the ERC in North Carolina 

The Employee Retention Credit is a refund on the share of payroll taxes paid during the worst stages of the pandemic when government restrictions were in place. The ERC is not limited to “essential” businesses. Any company for any industry can qualify if it had employees on payroll during the relevant quarters and if it was subject to a government shutdown. We work with businesses and organizations from every industry in North Carolina, including but not limited to: 

  • Healthcare Industry: Virtually every health industry business in North Carolina was subject to a federal, state, or local government shutdown. We help all healthcare providers claim the ERC in North Carolina, including hospitals, medical practices, dentists, chiropractors, and all types of therapists. 
  • Education Industry (For-Profit/Non-Profit): Education is vital to the future of our society. Both for-profit and non-profits educational institutions can claim the ERC. Our North Carolina ERC specialists are qualified to work with colleges, universities, trade schools, tutors, and daycare facilities.   
  • Transportation Industry: We have extensive experience helping transportation businesses file for the ERC. Along with other types of transportation companies in North Carolina, we work with bus companies, tourism companies, truck companies, and medical transport.   
  • Retail Businesses: Do you own and operate a brick-and-mortar retail business in North Carolina? All types of traditional retail companies were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, including social distancing rules and cleaning and sanitizing standards. 
  • Restaurants: At points during the pandemic, restaurants across North Carolina were forced to suspend operations outright. During other periods of the pandemic, restaurants were affected by other government regulations. Our North Carolina ERC specialists help restaurants claim the greatest possible ERC tax refund. 
  • Personal Care Businesses: Personal care companies—those that provide services directly to people—were impacted by government shutdowns in North Carolina. Businesses that can qualify for the ERC include gyms, fitness centers, salons, spas, and much more. 
  • Construction: Most construction companies and contractors can qualify for an ERC tax refund. We help businesses in construction claim the ERC in North Carolina. 
  • Manufacturing: From social distancing to supply chain disruptions, manufacturing companies saw many impacts from COVID-19. If you have any questions about getting the Employee Retention Credit for manufacturing in North Carolina, we can help. 

You Can Still File for the ERC in North Carolina for 2020 and 2021

If your business has not yet filed for the Employee Retention Credit, it is imperative that you take immediate action to preserve your ability to do so. There is still time to file for the ERC for all six quarters (2020 and 2021) in 2022. Even if your North Carolina business already filed its taxes, you can use Form 941-X to file an amended return. This means that you can retroactively file for an ERC tax refund. Our team helps North Carolina businesses maximize their ERC for all six quarters.
