We Like to Keep it REAL, lets get candid!

We love our CPAs too and trust their judgement for our taxes just like you.

We also love doing what's in our best interest and choose Tax Professionals according to what we are filing for.

The IRS Tax Code is over 70,000 pages and we don’t expect our CPA to waste time trying to learn that for a limited time tax credit!

We have all the Covid-19 government orders and invested heavily ($$$) to acquire them because this is OUR field of expertise.

CPAs will have you sign a waiver of liability and we give you all the protection in writing and stand by our work backed by Insurance.

Many CPAs outsource these types of applications because they too know that its not under their umbrella of comfort.

Many CPAs choose to trust us with their clients so why not directly come to us!

If you really love your CPA, don’t expect them to educate themselves on government incentives too.  Let them use their time and energy on saving you tax dollars properly.

Finally, you get a qualification underwriting report backed by government orders because we do everything in house and have a tight handle on the entire process. Your CPA cannot give you this!

Things that make you go "Hmmmmm"......

"Do I Qualify?"

Yes if you...

have self employed earnings during 2020 & 2021

filed Schedule C or SE on your tax returns

AND if you...

had to comply with Government Covid-19 Quarantine or Isolation orders

were symptomatic or sick (NO COVID TEST REQUIRED)

experienced side effects to vaccinations or had to go to a vaccination appointment

had to take care of a child, spouse, or family member or anyone who was sick with covid symptoms

had to take care of your children because childcare was unavailable

had to take care of your children when school was cancelled

had to take care of your children that were home due to remote learning

Make An Intelligent Decision

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about the SETC Tax Credit and IRSplus
DoI have to be self-employed to file for the tax credit refund?
Absolutely! This particular tax credit refund is designed with self-employed individuals in mind. It's also a great fit for small business owners, freelancers, and anyone working as a 1099 contractor. It's all about giving a helping hand to those who run their own show in the business world.
Can I claim SETC tax credits if I am also a W2 employee?
Yes, you can! If you've got self-employment income alongside your W2 earnings in 2020 or 2021, you're in the running for SETC tax credits. Just remember, if you received FFCRA wages through your employer, we'll need to adjust your SETC credit accordingly to avoid double benefits. And if your employee benefits don't cover everything, you might still be able to claim extra credits based on your self-employment.
Is the Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC) taxable?
No, it's not. Here's the good news: unlike Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC), the Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC) is not considered taxable income. This means when you claim SETC, it doesn't add to your tax burden the way PPP and ERTC might have. It's a financial perk without the extra tax strings attached.
Does filing for SETC tax credits impact filing my 2023 income taxes?
Actually, no. Filing for the SETC tax credit won't affect your 2023 income tax filings at all. To access these credits, our in-house team of accountants will amend your previously filed taxes for 2020 and/or 2021. This means the process is retroactive and doesn't touch your 2023 tax situation. It's a separate adjustment to your past filings, ensuring that your 2023 taxes remain unaffected.
If the tax payer and spouse both have self-employed income, can they both get the max $32,220 if they each qualify for the max?
Absolutely! If both spouses have self-employed income and individually qualify, they can each receive the maximum SETC of $32,220. However, it's important to note that they cannot share qualifying COVID days for children. Each spouse must meet the eligibility criteria based on their own separate self-employed activities and COVID-impacted days. This allows both individuals to fully benefit from the credit, provided their individual circumstances align with the SETC requirements.
How much of a tax credit can I expect to receive?

The size of your SETC tax credit hinges on a few key elements:

  • Your Schedule C or SE Net Income: This is drawn from your 2019, 2020, and 2021 tax returns. Your net income plays a major role in shaping the credit amount.
  • Days Affected by COVID-19: This includes any days you were sick or had to quarantine due to COVID-19.
  • Caring for a COVID-19 Affected person: If you spent time caring for someone impacted by COVID-19, this is factored in.
  • Remote/Virtual learning, School Closures: If schools or daycare centers were closed or unavailable and you had to care for a minor child, this too influences your credit.

These elements collectively contribute to determining the tax credit you can expect. For a precise calculation, you might want to use a specialized tax credit calculator or consult a tax expert.

What are the fees I have to pay IRSplus and how do I pay them?

The Client fee is a percentage of your total SETC refund. Our team of tax professionals will qualify, calculate and prepare all required paperwork ensuring your SETC application is filed within IRS compliance.  We consider all tax codes and tax laws required to do this properly

.Fees are due once your application is complete and ready to file. Fees can be paid all at once or you can opt to pay in installments through PayPal.

For fees equaling $1,500 or less, choose to pay over 6 months interest free or in (4) interest free installments starting at the time of filing, with (3) subsequent repayments every 15 days.

For larger refunds with Client fees greater than $1,500, you can finance your payments monthly with PayPal Pay Later. The “Pay Monthly” installment application is quick and simple.

With this option you may select to pay over the course of 6, 12, or 24 months. You must also have a PayPal account in good standing or open a PayPal account to apply. If you do not see monthly option available on your account, please contact PayPal directly.

Please note: It is not required to have a PayPal account to make a payment upfront, you can use your debit card or credit card at checkout.

Our Guarantee: If you do not receive your tax credit for any reason, we will reimburse you any fees paid.

What is PayPal Pay Later and what are my advantages?

Paying with PayPal pay later is quick and simple.  It offers an affordable option for clients to pay over 2, 6, 12, or 24 months. Even though Clients generally receive their SETC checks in less than 4 months, they are not required to pay off their PayPal installments.

Many clients opt to choose a 24 month pay later plan.  An invoice of $2,000 on this plan would have an estimated monthly payment of $85.  SETC checks arrive within 4 months so the estimated monthly payments amount would total $340 before checks arrive.

Do I absolutely need a PayPal account to pay the fees?

To pay your Client fee without logging into a PayPal account, you may simply select the “debit or credit card” button in the Client portal invoice page.

What is the difference between SETC and FFCRA?

While SETC (Self-Employed Tax Credit) and FFCRA (Families First Coronavirus Response Act) are both born from the same legislative umbrella aimed at providing COVID-19 relief, there's a neat distinction in their applicability:

  • SETC: A Special Focus for the Self-Employed
  • FFCRA: The Employee-Oriented Counterpart

So, while they share a common goal of easing the COVID-19 burden, SETC and FFCRA divvy up their support based on your employment status SETC for the self-starters and FFCRA for the employed brigade

Will I have to do a lot of paperwork to file by SETC with you?

Not at all. It's really straightforward – just select your days in our questionnaire. Then, upload your 2019 to 2021 tax returns and a copy of your driver’s license, and sign our agreement. That's it! We handle the rest, ensuring a smooth and stress-free process for you.

What is the FFCRA tax credit program?

The FFCRA (Families First Coronavirus Response Act) is a federal response to COVID-19, originally passed in March 2020. It started by aiding employers with W-2 employees, offering paid sick leave and unemployment benefits. By December 2020, under the CARES Act, it expanded to include the self-employed, freelancers, and gig workers, providing them with tax credits for lost work due to COVID-19. This broadened its scope, making it a comprehensive support system during the pandemic.

How much is the FFCRA credit?

The FFCRA tax credit can reach up to a substantial $32,220.00, with its calculation rooted in your self-employed net earnings for both 2020 and 2021.

Why haven't I heard of the FFCRA tax credits before?

It's not uncommon to be in the dark about the FFCRA tax credits. Initially, the focus of the FFCRA was on employers with W-2 employees. When the CARES Act came into play later in the same year, expanding these tax credits to include the self-employed, it didn't get the spotlight it deserved.

This lack of widespread publicity is a key reason why many self-employed individuals remain unaware of their entitlement to these credits. In fact, research indicates that over 80% of self-employed persons are still in the dark about their eligibility for the FFCRA tax credits.

Staying abreast of such updates is crucial, especially when they can have a significant financial impact.

Is this similar to the PPP program?

The PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) and the FFCRA (Families First Coronavirus Response Act) are indeed both responses to the economic fallout of COVID-19, but they cater to different needs.

PPP's Role: The PPP is all about bolstering small businesses. It does this by offering loans, which can be forgiven if used primarily for payroll and other eligible expenses. It's essentially a financial lifeline for businesses to keep their teams employed during the pandemic's challenging times.

FFCRA's Focus: On the other hand, FFCRA is not about loans but about providing tax credits. These credits are applied to taxes that individuals, especially the self-employed and employers, have already paid. Unlike the PPP, which is designed to support businesses directly, FFCRA is more individual-focused, offering relief to people impacted by COVID-19 related work disruptions.

While both play crucial roles in pandemic relief, their mechanisms of support differ significantly - one through loans for businesses and the other through tax credits for individuals

Is the SETC tax credit based on gross self-employed income or net self-employed income?

When determining eligibility for the SETC (Self-Employed Tax Credit), it's your net self-employed income that's under the microscope. This means you need to have a positive net income, which is your earnings after all allowable business deductions, for either 2019, 2020, or 2021. Additionally, your eligibility hinges on having specific days that qualify under the COVID-related criteria. It's this combination of positive net income and qualifying days that shapes your eligibility for the SETC.

How is the credit amount determined?

The amount of the tax credit you can receive is determined through a combination of specific criteria:

Income and Days Affected by COVID-19: Your average daily self-employment income and the number of days you missed work due to COVID-related issues, like quarantine or symptoms, are pivotal. This is used to calculate your potential credit.

Child Care Credit Calculation: If you took leave for childcare, your credit is the lesser of your average daily self-employment income or $511 per day.

Self-Employment Work Interruption Credit: If you missed work due to personal COVID-19 issues or caregiving, the credit is the lesser of two-thirds of your daily income or $200 per day.

Net Income and Caregiving Factors: Your net income reported on Schedule C for the tax years 2019-2021, the days you were sick or quarantined, and the time spent caregiving due to COVID-19, including periods when schools or daycare were closed, all play a role in the calculation.

Our Client Portal simplifies this process, guiding you through these factors and helping calculate your maximum FFCRA tax credit. For a quick estimate, our online Tax Credit Calculator can provide an accurate assessment of your eligibility and the likely credit amount.
