Payroll Retention Tax Credit Sunflower Webinar
The CARES Act provides a payroll retention tax credit. For 2020, the credit was up to $5,000 for the year (March 13 - December 31, 2020). For banks with over 100 employees, the credit was challenging to use in some cases. The Appropriation Act of 2020 greatly expands the availability of the tax credit. Moreover, it increases the credit up to $7,000 per employee per quarter for the first two quarters in 2021. We will discuss the significant changes to the tax credit both for banks and for their customers. We will also cover some of the goverance issues associated with taking the tax credit.
• What is the policy reason supporting the payroll rentention tax credit?
• What impact does the PPP have on the ability to take tax credits?
• What aspects of the Appropriations Act changes are retroactive?
• How has the calculation of the amount of the tax credit changed?
• What corporate governance steps are essential for 2021?
• How can the bank minimize risk and take the tax credits?
• How do I get the lawyers, accountants and PEOs on the same page?
