Employee Retention Tax Credit Case Study

Many businesses received government mandates to shut down while facing reduced revenues during the COVID-19 pandemic. To provide aid to the most vulnerable businesses, our legislators provided the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERC) to encourage employers to retain their employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. The ERC is available to businesses in numerous industries that suffered from government shut down orders, faced reduced revenues, or were impacted by supply chain issues.

Our latest ERC experience includes an assisted living community that was mandated to stop showing its facilities to potential residents and otherwise lost revenues due to COVID-19 related issues. ICS analyzed their eligible wages and calculated their ERC claim for the 2020 calendar year.
