Local Business Staff Member Retention Credit History 2021-- ERTC Eligibility Report Launched
ERTC Today, a tax credit consulting firm, has released an online tool to help small business owners determine if they are eligible for the 2021 Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC).
The newly launched tool also allows participants to secure consultations to discuss their eligibility for the tax credit and the amount they can expect to receive. The ERTC doesn't have to be repaid. Any business with fewer 500 employees (both non-profits as well as start-ups) may qualify.

This latest announcement is intended to raise awareness about the recently approved tax credit. It was initiated by the IRS to assist small businesses in maintaining their staff during these challenging times, via payroll cost refunds.
During the pandemic, many businesses have struggled with staff and supply shortages, closures, and ongoing uncertainty. Over the past two years, lawmakers have created several relief programs to assist business owners and employees in these difficult times. The ERTC is one such program, introduced as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020.
Businesses could be eligible for relief if they had to suspend or complete their normal operations in 2020 or 2021 because of a government order. This applies if they engaged in trade or business during these years and their employers were operating during the qualifying year.
No matter if the business owner received assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), refunds can be up to $28,000 per employee. Many businesses had previously chosen the PPP. However, IRS regulations have made it more accessible to all businesses.
ERTC Today is endorsed by GL Digital, a Phoenix-based digital content marketer and enterprise software company dedicated to supporting small businesses. GL Digital offers small business resources such as tax consultation and advice on domain names, social media management software, webinar tools and video hosting platforms.
