Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC)
Many nonprofits have qualified for the ERTC as a result of government-ordered “full or partial suspensions” that limited travel, meetings, or commerce OR if they suffered a reduction in gross receipts compared with the same quarter of 2019. The ERTC was cancelled in September 2021 but there is still time for eligible nonprofits to claim this refundable tax credit that can offset employment taxes and generate a refund payment. The credit can be claimed retroactively for parts of 2020 and 2021.
