Frequently Asked Questions

Below are our answers to your inquiries.

Your business could be eligible in one of two ways:

 – It was fully or partially suspended due to a governmental order; or

– It experienced a significant drop in gross receipts

No. Wages paid to related individuals, as defined by section 51(i)(1) of the Code, are not taken into account for purposes of the ERC.

A “related individual” is defined in IRS FAQ #59.


You don’t need to worry to pay this back or keep records of how you used it. The funds are yours.

Any employee can be a qualified employee for the business if all other prerequisites like business eligibility, wages, and healthcare paid are met. An employee’s hire date has no impact on determining eligibility. 

Unlike the PPP, tax refunds are unlimited. As issued by the US Treasury, anyone who qualifies and applies, will receive their credit.

First, you will have to provide information about business eligibility, location, employees, and salaries. It might take approximately two days for you to answer the on-screen questions and compile the payroll information.

Next, you will confirm all information, receive a fee estimate, make a partial payment, and submit the information to us. It usually takes 5 to 7 business days to process customer information and calculate ERC.

This new stimulus package allows businesses that already claimed the PPP to also claim the ERC.

The ERC is subject to income tax
