ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS SURROUNDING THE CONFUSING, CONFLICTING (ERC)  EMPLOYEE RETENTION CREDIT PROGRAM


The Employee Retention Credit program, ERC, is arguably the most significant grant program in history for small business owners, nonprofits, private schools and other organizations that employ 2 to 500 people. 

To not file a claim and get back some of the tax money you sent the government during covid is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.  It is your money. The government has set aside nearly 400 billion dollars to be claimed; they want you to have it because you kept people employed during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The amount of money organizations can claim, even those that received PPP funds, sounds too good to be true

There is no need to fear filing a claim, as long as you use an established, credible ERC recovery firm.  You only get one chance to get it done and get it done right.

Quite frankly, the only company I would recommend to family members and those I care about is Bottom Line Concepts.


The horror stories organizations have experienced because they hired companies that popped up in the last couple of years and will be gone when the ERC program ends are reaching epidemic levels.   

You only get one chance to get your claim done right. We speak with companies everyday that tell us this is unexpected, found money, I would have gladly paid a much larger contingency fee for the peace of mind of knowing my claim was filed correctly.

Stories of here today, gone tomorrow “recovery” companies that have taken money up-front from clients and then not completed the work. Others have filed questionable claims so they could receive the largest commissions with information that will virtually guarantee an audit of the company down the road.

Even worse, companies hire a trusted CPA who feels obligated to do the work but couldn’t have possibly been expected to keep up with the multiple amendments to the 280+ page ERC document. CPAs are professionals at filing taxes.  The ERC program is not a tax return,  it is a grant, and you are trying to compare apples and oranges.

The reason we only recommend Bottom Line Concepts to our families, friends, and clients is simply their reputation.  They have been writing government grants and doing this type of work for over 15 years.  They are an Inc. 5000 company, and its client list includes companies like McDonalds, Hilton Hotels, The LA Lakers, and four hundred of the Top 1000 firms in America.



Do you think these huge companies have top legal counsel and CPA’s on staff? We do these pros make the decision to work with BottomLine Concepts to file their ERC claim? They understand filing an ERC claim is not just about amending a few tax forms, you need an experienced company at writing government grants and has a impeccable reputation with government agencies and the IRS.

These large iconic companies know if you want your ERC claim filed fairly, quickly, and correctly Bottom Line is the company they depend on.

If peace of mind is of interest to you, here is an important question to consider. If you could have the same company file your ERC claim that is trusted by some of the top corporations in America, is there any business reason you shouldn’t use them, if they offer to do it for you?

They will let you know if you have a claim and if they feel you would be a good client for them to offer a recovery contract.  The one thing I can guarantee is they will not tell you what you want to hear just to get your business.  I don’t want you to become another victim in the scummy horror show being created by less qualified companies in this space.

I will end this article the way I started it.
