The Government Is Stuffing Your Pockets! Here’s How


Lori joins me today on the show, along with Mark Sullivan and Josh Zieglowsky of ERC Specialists, a specialty payroll company exclusively dedicated to understanding and maximizing the CARES Act Employee Retention Credit (ERC) for U.S. businesses affected negatively by COVID-19. You’ve heard about PPP and EIDL, but this is actually a refund for the W2 wages that you paid as an employer. Mark and Josh explain what this tax credit is all about, who qualifies for it, and why your CPA hasn’t told you about this yet. They also break down what you can expect from their services and highlight why this program is one of the few win-win-win situations out there. 


Episode Highlights:

( 1:21 ) Welcome back to The Chris Harder Show. Chris and Lori are joined by Mark Sullivan and Josh Zieglowsky, co-founders of ERC Specialists. 

( 4:31 ) Chris asks Josh, “What in the world is the ERC tax credit?”

( 8:07 ) Chris asks Mark, “This tax credit is an infinite amount of money, is that right?”

( 10:00 ) Chris asks Mark, “Should somebody go running to their tax accountant to apply for this? Or is it easier to go through someone like you who’s a specialist and just this one thing?”

( 11:52 ) Lori asks Mark, “What was the intent? Why do they offer all of this money?”

( 13:11 ) Lori asks Josh, “What about a newer company like mine, where I was not launched, but I was in business?”

( 18:28 ) Chris asks Josh and Mark, “Why are the two of you guys doing this? Why did you make a company out of it?”

( 21:39 ) Chris asks Lori, “It’s not being talked about in my circle. My circle is highly entrepreneurial. What about yours? Have you ever heard of this?”

( 22:09 ) Chris asks Josh, “Do people owe you any money to find out? Or is it until they’re getting money, they’re not paying a single penny?”
