The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has introduced a special withdrawal process to assist small businesses and organizations that have filed an Employee Retention Credit (ERC) claim and are worried about its accuracy. This option lets eligible employers who filed an ERC claim, but haven’t received a refund yet, withdraw their submission to avoid future repayment, interest, and penalties, even if their claim is still being processed.
