On September 14, 2023, the IRS placed an immediate moratorium on the processing of new ERC claims for the remainder of 2022 and possibly longer. But there’s more than a moratorium involved. The announcement was accompanied by additional IRS warnings and clear indications of forthcoming initiatives intended to help filers who were pressured to file unwarranted claims.
Join us for this webinar where our presenter covers the full spectrum of trending ERC topics, including but not limited to the IRS reasons for creating the moratorium, processing times, what the moratorium means for pending claims, what you need to know if you haven’t filed a claim yet. The presenter will also cover the updated IRS FAQs and newly issued eligibility checklist along with the risks businesses face if they are lured into a bad claim. The presenter will discuss the forthcoming IRS settlement program for repayments of ill-gotten ERC funds, the IRS’s upcoming “withdrawal option” for those with pending claims and second thoughts, the IRS reminder of the ERC’s complexity and the risks for those who file questionable claims, and why a trusted tax professional is absolutely essential wherever you may be in the ERC process.
