Salem, OR, COVID Tax Credit Eligibility & Application For Restaurants Updated

ERTC Express and Cottage Digital Media have updated their Employee Retention Credit (ERC) eligibility checking and application service to help the owners of small to medium-sized businesses, including startups and non-profit organizations, maximize their COVID tax credits.

More information about changes to the maximum allowable rebate, claiming ERC as a non-profit organization, and the no-cost eligibility assessment can be found at

After several recent changes to the ERC program, it’s estimated that the majority of business owners with 500 or fewer W-2 employees can now qualify for rebates, even if they have already received loans through the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Cottage Digital Media’s expanded eligibility check can help any employer to determine if they might qualify and also provides estimates for how much funding they may be able to claim.

The eligibility assessment is provided with no cost or obligation and does not require any proprietary business information. It can be completed in approximately one minute, by answering 10 simple questions.

After completing the assessment, employers will receive a pre-qualification notice, an estimate of how much they may be able eligible for, and a link to a secure server, operated by a firm of ERC specialist CPAs. This link can be used to access the fast application service, known as the 15 Minute Refund program.

The 15 Minute Refund program is operated entirely by the specialist CPA firm and focuses exclusively on completing pandemic relief claims to help ensure that every claim is completed, filed, and approved before the deadline. The program also helps every employer get their maximum allowable rebate, with no risk, no up-front fees, and no more than 15 minutes of time required from the business owner.

Rebates claimed through the 15 Minute Refund program are not a loan or deferral, they are reimbursement for wages that employers have already paid, during the recent pandemic. These funds have no restrictions on how they can be spent and never require repayment in any form.

The CPA team can help employers to claim up to $26,000 per employee, with no upper limit on funding. Though experts suggest that the average small business has been able to claim approximately $150,000 in rebates, this will vary based on several factors, and each employer’s exact rebate can be determined by the CPA team.
