What Is The Purpose Of An ERC Audit?
The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) was a major effort by the government to help businesses during the 2020-2022 pandemic era. However, with the passing of the CARES Act, the IRS introduced an audit process for the employee retention tax credit as well.
With the IRS ramping up efforts to ensure compliance with businesses that utilized the ERC program, it is important for business owners to understand the audit process. The purpose of an audit is to verify that businesses claiming the credit have met the eligibility requirements and calculated the credit correctly. The IRS is looking for information on things such as qualified wages paid, gross receipts during that period, and so on.
The IRS may request documentation from your business such as payroll records and financial statements to support your ERC claim. While the ERC audit process can be intimidating, it’s not the end of the road for your business if you got tagged for an audit by the IRS.
