If my business received a PPP loan, is it still eligible to receive an ERC tax credit?

Even if your business applied for and received PPP funding, you may be eligible for the ERC credit. The best way to determine eligibility is to begin our pre-qualification process.

Why can’t my payroll service or accountant do this for me?

Payroll services often aren’t equipped to properly evaluate and quickly process ERC credits. Our tax attorneys are well-versed in the details of this federal program and understand how they can be uniquely applied to YOUR business.
