• Employee Retention Credit Calculator

Are You Missing Out on Unclaimed ERC Benefits?

For employers who kept employees on their payroll and continued providing health benefits during the COVID-19 pandemic, the employee retention credit (ERC) may offer significant payroll tax relief. However, several rounds of legislation with expansions, extensions and other changes have made the requirements difficult to follow, and many eligible businesses have yet to claim the credit. While the credit ended September 30, 2021, the ERC can be claimed retroactively.
 

Use our simple calculator to see if you qualify for the ERC and if so, by how much.

The ERC Calculator will ask questions about the company's gross receipts and employee counts in 2019, 2020 and 2021, as well as government orders that may have impacted the business in 2020 and 2021.

The ERC Calculator is best viewed in Chrome or Firefox.
