The IRS is urging people to beware of ads that promise big money by claiming the employee retention tax credit. This is a real tax credit that helps businesses that were affected by the pandemic – but scammers are telling people they qualify when they don't. The scammer takes a fee and your personal information. If you're not eligible for the credit, getting conned by this could cost you a lot. The IRS doesn't want that to happen to you, so check out the official information at IRS.gov/erc.
