The Employee Retention Credit—few church leaders know about it, and even fewer understand it. But as the country slowly emerges from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s an opportunity every church nationwide should evaluate.
The reason: It represents potentially sizable financial aid to churches either affected by government-mandated gathering restrictions or significant revenue declines—or both.
Through a guided discussion with Matthew Branaugh, Mike and Kaylyn help church leaders learn the following:
- How the Employee Retention Credit developed, and the specific time periods churches can use to evaluate their eligibility;
- The specific criteria churches need to meet within those time periods;
- How to claim the credit if the eligibility criteria is met; and,
- How much churches can expect to receive when they claim the credit.
