How Dentists Can Receive Money from the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC) and Receive Full PPP Loan Forgiveness


On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 was signed into law. This law provided a huge opportunity to many dentists to not only obtain full forgiveness of their round one Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans but also allowed dentists to claim tens of thousands of dollars of federal tax credits from the Employee Retention Tax Credit (ERTC). This webinar will show dentists how they can take advantage of this opportunity.

Learning Objectives:
A thorough, statistically relevant, random, sample records audit of patient charts to evaluate documentation, redo’s, consents, and financial arrangements. We’ll review days per week and hours along with internal and external marketing.
1. Explain how the Employee Retention Tax Credit rules work.
2. Review the rules for obtaining forgiveness of your round one PPP loan.
3. Explain how a dentist can obtain both PPP forgiveness and receive up to $5,000 per employee in a Federal Employee Retention tax credit for 2020.
4. Discuss why filing early for PPP loan forgiveness could cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
