What Is The ERC Deadline?

For ERC filings, similar to other IRS tax submissions, you’ll use Form 941-X to make amendments. If you’re pursuing a refund for a previous filing, the IRS allows a 3-year window from the original due date. Note that the IRS has updated deadlines for claiming ERC refunds as follows:

Deadlines to Claim Employee Retention Tax Credit:

ERC deadline for the 2020 tax year

The Employee Retention Credit deadline for the 2020 tax year is April 15, 2024. This applies to all three eligible quarters: Q2, Q3, and Q4. The first quarter doesn’t count since COVID-19 mandates didn’t begin in the U.S. until the end of the first quarter. 


ERC deadline for the 2021 tax year

The ERC deadline for Q1, Q2 and Q3 for the 2021 tax year is April 15, 2025. This gives you time to gather documentation for a robust application. But it’s still smart to apply as soon as possible, especially since the IRS is reporting a backlog in reviewing applications. In other words, the sooner you apply, the sooner you’re likely to get approved and receive your credit funds (or have them applied to an outstanding tax bill).
