Is Your ERC Claim Delayed? How Refund Litigation Or The Taxpayer Advocate Service May Help

If you're facing significant delays with your Employee Retention Credit (ERC) claim, the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) might offer a solution. This independent IRS organization helps taxpayers resolve issues and can work to expedite claims. Moreover, taxpayers may choose to file an action in the United States District Court or Court of Federal Claims to compel a refund.  Taxpayers may have jurisdiction to file in these courts if the ERTC claims have been outstanding for more than six months.

When Should you Consider TAS for Your ERC Claim?

If your ERTC claim has been in processing for more than six months or the delay is causing significant hardship for your business, then TAS may be able to intervene and prioritize your case.

Client testimonials

"I was referred to The Frost Law Firm through the National Restaurant Association for the ERC program. I am happy I chose them over the 100's of solicitations I have received over the past 6 months for the ERC program. The entire team at Frost Law were great to work with and always responded to any question I might have had. What also impressed me is that their fee did not increase when they informed me that my refund amount would be about double from the original amount and they did not charge me any additional fees to process my paperwork!  If you're reading reviews to determine who you want to represent you for the ERC program, you don't have to look any further!"

"Rebecca and her team at Frost Law were amazing. We met randomly through an online COVID business development series of webinars and she was so impressive, that I decided that I could trust her with my ERC filings. They did what was needed swiftly and professionally. I am in California and she in Maryland and there were no issues with that. I highly recommend Rebecca and her team for your tax needs even if she is in Maryland. I have even referred a client to her for another issue."
