Additional Extension of the Due Date for Submitting the Claim of Benefit for Retention of Employees



In response to multiple requests from employers that wish to obtain the benefit for the retention of employees post the 2017 hurricanes, the Treasury Department (TD) extends the date for filing the request to November 15, 2019.  By means of its Internal Revenue Informative Bulletin No. 19-22 (BI RI 19-12), the TD informs that those employers that as of June 30, 2019 filed the request may submit a Claim for the benefit.

The “ERTC Implementation Plan” or agreement between the TD and the USA Treasury Department establishes the criteria that apply to employers in Puerto Rico whose businesses were interrupted, partially or totally closed, due to damages caused by the 2017 hurricanes.   These employers may request the benefits stated by the “Disaster Tax Relief and Airport and Airway Extension Act of 2017” and the “Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018”.

The TD reminds employers that the Claim may only be submitted through the electronic form provided by the digital platform that was designed for such purposes.

TCG’s professional team reminds you that they are able and available to expedite this transaction for you.
