  • May 22, 2023

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 30, 2023 / The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) tax refund for attorneys, lawyers, law firms, legal practices, and other professional legal service type businesses provides a valuable tax refund from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Almost all law firms in every state qualify a portion of the eligibility period due to mandated court shutdowns, suspension of court operations and jury trials, that happened in every federal, state, county, or local city government judicial court system. Even if your firm revenue didn’t decline, or it even increased, under the closure and partial shutdown rules, most law firms may still qualify for up to a $26,000 to $33,000 tax refund per attorney, lawyer, paralegal, and other employees on the firm’s payroll in 2020 and 2021.
