Employee Retention Tax Credit Q & A

The International Franchise Association is a strong supporter of the Employee Retention Tax Credit, a lesser-known liquidity tool that is important for many sectors of the economy affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2020, IFA spearheaded coalition efforts to gain broad-based support from businesses of all sizes and all affected sectors in support of the program, culminating in a letter to the U.S. Congress with support from over 130 associations.
