Contact us today to set up a strictly confidential initial appointment with an Employee Retention Credit professional in Ohio. 

Understanding the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERC) 

In March of 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law. Within the CARES Act were many key provisions regarding economic support for businesses and individuals during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is one of the most well-known CARES Act provisions. What is far less well known is that the CARES Act also created a fully refundable payroll tax credit called the Employee Retention Credit or ERC. Here are three key things business in Ohio should know about the ERC: 

  1. A Maximum of Six Quarters of ERC Benefits are Available: The ERC is available for a total of six quarters: The final three quarters of 2020 and the first three quarters of 2021. A business in Ohio can claim ERC benefits for some (or all) of those quarters. 
  2. Up to $26,000 Per Qualifying Employee: Your ERC tax refund will be based primarily on the qualified wages paid to workers during the applicable quarters. The greatest total ERC benefit is $26,000 per employee. 
  3. You Can Claim the ERC and the PPP: The ERC and the PPP are separate pandemic-related economic support programs? Did your Ohio business get PPP funds? You can file for the ERC. Did your Ohio business never apply for PPP funding? You can still file for the ERC. The ERC may be worth up to seven times as much as your PPP loan. 

How to Claim the Employee Retention Credit in Ohio 

As a business owner or business manager in Ohio, you may have questions about what you need to show to qualify for the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). The short answer is that there are two main ways to qualify for the tax credit. Ohio businesses must assert one of the following: 

  • They were subject to a full or partial shutdown based on a government order; or
  • They sustained a significant revenue loss when compared to a pre-pandemic period.

The most important thing to understand about qualifying for the ERC in Ohio is that virtually every company in the state was subject to government shutdowns. Most Ohio businesses can qualify for the ERC. Your business may be able to get a tax refund based on any of the following: 

  • Enhanced cleaning & sanitizing standards;
  • Social distancing regulations; 
  • Capacity limits; 
  • A shut down or work-from-home order; 
  • Social distancing rules; and 
  • Supply chain disruptions. 

The Ohio ERC specialists at Sunrise Business Solutions have access to all of the applicable government shutdown orders and public health restrictions. We can help businesses and organizations in Ohio put together all of the documentation needed to qualify for the ERC.

You Can Still File for the Employee Retention Credit for All Six Quarters (2020 and 2021)

The Employee Retention Credit can be claimed by businesses in Ohio for the final three quarters of 2020 and the first three quarters of 2021. There is still time to claim the ERC tax refund for all six quarters—even if your business has already filed its taxes. Federal regulations create a three-year lookback for the ERC. Ohio companies can retroactively claim the ERC by completing and submitting Form 941-X. Our Ohio ERC specialists are here to help your business get the maximum tax refund.
