Take advantage of one of the most extensive disaster zone tax credit programs for businesses and add thousands of dollars to your bottom line. The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERC) under the CARES Act helps provide financial relief to employers impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act, this act incentivized eligible employers to retain employees on their payroll to weather the economic crisis caused by the pandemic. Let us handle your claim to maximize eligibility while reducing your resources dedicated to it.

With a tax credit service like Experian Employer Services, you can determine whether you meet the eligibility requirements to claim this credit. We implement innovative technology to reduce your workload so you and your team can focus on more important tasks while we help you get the financial relief you need.

Disaster Zone Tax Credits

Disaster relief tax credits help employers get back on their feet after qualifying disasters, such as wildfires, hurricanes, and earthquakes, render their locations inoperable. At Experian, our tax credit management team can help you claim relevant disaster relief tax credits to get your team back on track. If your organization is in a qualifying disaster zone, we can help you through each step of the claim process. You may be eligible for disaster zone tax credits, including the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC), Paid Sick and Family Leave Credits, and similar credits. 

Family Medical Leave Act Tax Credit

If you’re an employer who provides family and medical leave to your employees, you may be eligible for the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Tax Credit. This tax credit is equal to a percentage of wages you pay to eligible employees who take time off for family and medical leave. Our suite of tools makes it easy to determine the eligibility requirements and fill out the necessary paperwork to receive the FMLA tax credit. With our tax credit management services on your side, applying for tax credits that can improve your ROI and protect your bottom line is easy.
