How Do I Check Status of My ERC Refund

In a world where economic turmoil can occur unexpectedly, businesses often struggle to keep their employees on board. One significant relief for such times is the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). A refundable tax credit designed specifically for businesses that retain their employees during times of financial hardship. The aim of ERTC is to recognize and mitigate the difficulties many face during extraordinary situations like the COVID-19 pandemic.

As a business owner, you might be wondering about your employee retention credit refund status. And rightfully so… It’s your responsibility to ensure that you’re availing all the benefits meant for your business’s survival and growth. But remember, not every ERTC ‘expert’ can guide you in the right direction. Hence, it becomes imperative to make informed decisions.

How to Check the Status of ERTC Refund?

Contact the IRS

The most direct way to check your ERC refund status is to contact the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) directly. You can call their toll-free phone number at 1-800-829-1040 and speak with a representative. Be prepared to provide your Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number (EIN) and other relevant information to verify your identity.

Check the IRS Website (www.irs.gov)

You can also visit the official IRS website (www.irs.gov) and use the “Where’s My Refund?” tool. This tool allows you to track the status of your refund by entering your Social Security Number or EIN, your filing status, and the exact amount of the refund.

Consult Your Tax Professional

If you have a tax professional or accountant who helped you with your ERC claim, they may also be able to assist you in checking the status of your refund.
