Most dental practices qualify for this tax credit—even if PPP funding was received. Claim your credit now.

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) allows small  businesses adversely affected by COVID-19 to claim  up to $26,000 per employee as a tax credit—even if the business received a PPP loan! Filing for the ERC can be complicated and time-consuming. Which means this tax credit is underutilized. Don’t miss out on what may be coming to you.

Highlights of the ERC
√  Receive up to $26,000 per employee.
√  To qualify, your practice needs to have  experienced decreased revenue, a COVID event,  a partial or full shutdown, or a supply chain  disruption and kept employees on the payroll.
√  Wages used to apply for the PPP forgiveness cannot be claimed as ERC wages, but remaining wages may be eligible.
√  The ERC is available for the last two quarters  of 2021 for certain small businesses that opened after Feb. 15, 2020.
√  Businesses must file for the ERC before the first amended tax return deadline of July 31, 2023.  This is the deadline that applies to most MDA members, so don’t delay!
