Understanding the IRS's Temporary Moratorium on New ERC Claims and Its Impact on Your Business
Important 2-Minute Read
Did you see the IRS’s announcement that they won’t be processing NEW ERC claims through the remainder of the year? Let us tell you that this is a good thing, and not something to worry about. We are still submitting ERC Applications and we will tell you why in this letter.
The IRS is reinforcing their guidelines to protect you, not to tell you no. Simultaneously they will be using this time until Dec. 31, 2023, to continue catching up on their backlog of “600,000 ERC applications”.
Recently, the IRS published a very important news release. And although a “moratorium on processing new claims through the year’s end” would seem unagreeable to many ERC firms, we think the IRS’s initiative to “add more safeguards to prevent future abuse, protect businesses from predatory tactics” is necessary at this time.
The temporary “moratorium” ordered by the IRS will protect small businesses from being preyed upon by fast-talking ERC companies even when they are not eligible. It paves the way for well-intentioned and compliant firms like ERC guaranteed to provide professional tax services that have your best interest in mind.
From day one, ERC Guaranteed has had a strict process for applying, and that is why we’re the only major firm that has all their work insured by A++ and AA+ Insurance Company for Professional Liability Errors & Omissions insurance. We carefully only consider the strongest qualifications for our clients. The ERC is a complex tax credit and we try to be as conservative as possible so that we are in compliance with all rules and regulations governing this credit.

- We are hoping and anticipating that the moratorium will be lifted sooner than December 2023.
