IRS Freezes Employee Retention Tax Credit; Sees Surge of Questionable Claims

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service has stopped processing new employer claims for federal employee retention credit (ERC) tax credits while it intensifies its investigation of fraud and abuse under the program. In a news release issued Sept. 14, the IRS said it is working with the U.S. Justice Department to add additional safeguards to prevent fraud and protect businesses from “predatory tactics” by promoters aggressively marketing the tax credits.

The IRS is developing new initiatives to help businesses that have been the subject of such promotions, including a repayment settlement program for businesses that improperly claimed credits. ASA members with ERC questions should contact Marc Gerson at Miller & Chevalier, the association’s longtime Washington, DC, tax counsel, at or 202-626-1475.
