Employee Retention Tax Credit Update: What You Should Know About Audits, Disclosures and IRS Enforcement

The Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) program has been in the IRS crosshairs for over a year. Congress is considering an early termination to the program, but new claims presently can continue to be filed through April 15, 2025. Increased awareness about aggressive or inappropriate claims facilitated by ERTC promoters has left many employers concerned about the propriety of claims they previously filed, and what steps they may take to allay those concerns.

Join CBIZ for a one-hour webinar for business leaders to understand what’s next. We’ll address how to prepare for ERTC audits, voluntary disclosures, claim withdrawals and IRS enforcement. You’ll learn the details you need to know and what steps to take to be prepared.

This webinar will be moderated by CBIZ National Tax Office National Director of Tax Technical Services Bill Smith, and include the following ERTC experts:

  • Hale E. Sheppard, Partner, Tax Controversy, Chamberlain Hrdlicka
  • Sean Haggerty, Director, CBIZ MHM, LLC

After completing this course you will be able to:
