FAQ

General Information

Section 2301 of the CARES Act provided a refundable payroll tax refund (ERTC) for companies whose business was impacted by Covid-19. The credit was applicable to qualified wages paid after March 12, 2020, and before January 1, 2021.  

Soon after, The Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020 amended the CARES Act to extend the ERTC through the first two quarters of 2021.  

Additional changes to the ERTC were made under section 9651 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. Most notably, the ARPA extended ERC eligibility for the last two quarters of 2021. Thus, employers were eligible for the ERC on qualified wages paid after March 12, 2020, and before January 1, 2020.  

Unfortunately, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act signed on November 15, 2021, brought an early sunset to the ERTC. The IIJA only impacts the fourth quarter of 2021. The ERTC is still eligible to be claimed retroactively for any qualified wages paid after March 12, 2020, and before October 1, 2021.
