Where to enter the Employee Retention Credit in ProSeries

by Intuit Updated 2 months ago

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.

The credit is available to eligible employers that paid qualified wages to some or all employees after March 12, 2020, and before January 1, 2022. This credit isn't applicable for tax year 2022, or newer returns.
