Guidance To Employers Claiming The Employee Retention Tax Credit

Details on updates to the employee retention credit for the third and fourth quarters of 2021 are now available. Among the changes: the credit is available to eligible employers that pay qualified wages after June 30, 2021, and before January 1, 2022, expanding eligible employers to include “recovery startup businesses,” and modifying the definition of qualified wages for “severely financially distressed employers.” Details can be found on the Coronavirus page of IRS.gov.

Identity Protection PIN Available

You can now prevent someone else from filing a tax return with your Social Security number by getting an Identity Protection PIN (IP PIN). The IP PIN is a six-digit number known only to the taxpayer and the IRS, and is valid for one calendar year. To get an IP PIN for 2021, go to the IRS website and the Get an IP PIN page.

Interest Rates Remain The Same For Third Quarter

There is no change to interest rates for the calendar quarter that began July 1, 2021. The rates remain:

  • 3% for overpayments (2% in the case of a corporation),
  • 0% for the portion of a corporate overpayment exceeding $10,000,
  • 3% for underpayments and
  • 5% for large corporate underpayments.

New Jersey Changes Remote Worker Taxation

Starting on October 1, 2021, the New Jersey Division of Taxation will end the temporary relief period regarding employers withholding tax for teleworking employees. That means employers should focus on where the work is being performed, not where the employee lives and withhold New Jersey Gross Income Tax from wages. Other temporary rules for the corporate-business tax and for sales-tax purposes will also be lifted on October 1.
