How are you Generating Employee Retention Tax Credit Leads?

Level 1

Hello everyone,

I've been using Data To Leads recently for sourcing ERC leads and so far, the experience has been positive. However, I'm looking to ramp up the number of people who are filing for ERC through my service.

I wanted to ask if any fellow users of Data To Leads have any specific strategies or tricks they're willing to share to increase the number of ERC filings? Your insights would be greatly appreciated.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

Best regards,

0 Cheers

I advise against clicking on the link in this post....

My strategy is to run as far away as possible from anybody that is selling ERC services since pretty much everyone that I’ve seen selling those services falls short of meeting the trustworthiness of a used car salesman.

Of course, starting off including the word "Leads" tells us this is Sales, not a customer service or client relationship. That's one way to robo-spam. Thx for the warning.


"Beware of Employee Retention Credit scams; Payers may receive notices CP2100 and 2100A if they filed an information return with errors"

The IRS continues to see third parties aggressively promoting Employee Retention Credit (ERC) schemes. In News Release IR-2023-105, the IRS renewed an alert for businesses and tax exempt groups to watch out for warning signs of aggressive Employee Retention Credit marketing. 

These promoters may lie about eligibility requirements. In addition, taxpayers using these companies could be at risk of someone using the credit as a ploy to steal their identity or take a cut of the taxpayer’s improperly claimed credit. 

ERC is important pandemic-era credit and valuable if claimed properly, but could result in repayment and substantial penalties and interest if not. The IRS has trained auditors examining ERC claims posing the greatest risk. The IRS Criminal Investigation division is working to identify fraud and promoters of fraudulent claims. Illegitimate claims slow down processing of the credit for everyone.

The IRS also reminds businesses, tax-exempt groups, and others about simple steps to take to protect themselves from making an improper ERC. 

Reporting ERC fraud: 

Employers can report illegal tax-related ERC claims and activities by submitting a completed Form 14242, Report Suspected Abusive Tax Promotions or Preparers (PDF), and any supporting materials to the IRS Lead Development Center in the Office of Promoter Investigations. The fax telephone number and mailing address are on the form.
