More than 80% of businesses qualify for a payroll tax refund through the ERC.
MARTINSVILLE, VA / ACCESSWIRE / September 26, 2022 / Carter Bank & Trust ("CBT") (NASDAQ:CARE) has partnered with Innovation Refunds ("IR"), a financial solutions provider connecting businesses to payroll tax refunds through the Employee Retention Credit (ERC), to help companies collect money they're owed from the government.
Through this partnership, CBT and IR can help businesses get up to $26,000 per employee kept on payroll during the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if a company has obtained Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds, it could still qualify for a payroll tax refund through the ERC. With more than $1 billion in refunds secured for businesses and an average refund of $375,000, IR is CBT's preferred ERC partner.
"We're the first bank in Virginia and North Carolina to partner with Innovative Refunds to help businesses access money through the Employee Retention Credit," Carter Bank & Trust CEO Litz Van Dyke said. "Navigating the IRS can be difficult, especially for businesses that are still trying to get back on their feet after the pandemic. Through this partnership, we're making that process as seamless as possible, allowing for business owners to focus on their day-to-day operations."
"Even through the worst of it, many businesses were unaware of the benefits available to them," said Howard Makler, CEO of IR. "In today's economy, these amounts could very well make or break a business. Organizations must leverage the expertise of tax professionals like ourselves to ensure they take advantage of the opportunities afforded to them by the Federal Government."
With a mission to empower businesses for growth, IR makes it easy for companies to collect their refund through a simple application and refund evaluation with no upfront costs. IR's more than 300 combined years of business and accounting experience help ensure no money is left on the table.
"The pandemic presented a litany of challenges for small businesses. As they look to bounce back in the years following 2020, it is critical for business owners to participate and take advantage of relief opportunities such as the ERC program," said Makler.
