Have You Received an ERC Audit Letter?
Our ERC audit defense team can help you defend and retain your tax credit.

Audit Notices and Letters of Denial

Businesses and organizations that claimed the Employee Retention Credit (ERC) are receiving audit notices and letters of denial. In many cases, the provider who handled the ERC claim is no longer in business or not willing to defend claims they filed. Most letters questioning ERC claims contain 13 questions with sub-parts and give the taxpayer only 30 days to respond.


Our tax incentive specialists will review your ERC claim to determine whether and to what extent you were eligible for the amounts you claimed.  We will review the letter(s) you have received and help determine your best course of action. We have reviewed thousands of ERC cases and understand the nuances of the law and ensuing IRS guidance regarding what constitutes eligibility for claiming the ERC. 

Audit Defense

Should you engage our firm to defend your ERC claim, your case will be defended by a licensed tax attorney - Joshua Massoud, J.D. - with nearly 20 years of tax incentives experience. We will communicate with your assigned IRS agent to meet required deadlines, answer their questions regarding your claim, provide required information and defend your eligibility.
