Where to enter the Employee Retention Credit in ProSeries

SOLVEDby Intuit29Updated April 20, 2022

This article will help you enter the Employee Retention Credit on your client's income tax return. Although the credit is claimed on payroll filings (Form 944, 941, or equivalents), you may need to adjust amounts on the tax return to account for the credit claimed.

As part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the Employee Retention Credit is extended from June 30, 2021 to December 31, 2021.

If you are looking for information about being in limbo from taking the credit before it was repealed, see the IRS FAQ on this matter.
