Let me leave you with this.

We received the first of the responses from the IRS on the First Quarter 2021 Employee Retention Credits that we filed last month. If you are one of our regular payroll clients, then we were able to electronic file for the credit. As such, the IRS response time is normally around four to six weeks.

The credit works like an overpayment on the 941. If you don’t have any outstanding issues with the IRS, they will mail a check for the overpayment.

If you do have any outstanding issues or taxes owed, the IRS will send a letter detailing the change to the overpayment and will ask if you agree. If you do, then nothing else needs to be done. The IRS will send the refund three or four weeks after the letter.

If you are not one of our regular payroll clients, then we have to do an amendment to your existing 941 which cannot be electronically filed. As such, the response time is three or four months. It works the same way, but takes a while longer.

My point is that it is working.
