How long before I will receive my cash refund?

Dear Taxpayer,

The Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC) is a critical resource tailored to aid self-employed individuals in coping with the challenges brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize the urgency of your financial needs and are committed to ensuring that you do not miss out on this invaluable opportunity.

In partnership with Kane Accounting Service, we aim to help you navigate the complexities of the SETC application process swiftly. Whether you operate a self-employed business, work as a 1099 subcontractor, or manage a family-centric small business, the SETC can be the lifeline you require to bridge financial gaps caused by unforeseen disruptions.

Key Eligibility Criteria:

  1. Self-Employed Status: If you were self-employed in 2020 and/or 2021, you may be eligible for the SETC. This includes sole proprietors with employees, 1099 subcontractors, and single-member LLCs who filed a “Schedule C” or a Partnership (1065) on their federal tax returns for 2020 and/or 2021.
  2. COVID Impacts: The SETC is available if you faced COVID-related challenges such as illness, caregiving responsibilities, quarantine, or related circumstances. If the closure of your child’s school or daycare due to COVID restrictions affected your ability to work, we are here to assist you.

Important Note: Sub S or True S Corps / C Corps are not eligible for the SETC. This unique tax credit is exclusively available to business owners who filed a “Schedule C” or a Partnership (1065) on their federal tax returns for 2020 and/or 2021.

When you are ready to apply, you will need specific tax documents, qualifying dates, and two completed documents from Tax Prep Advocates, which can be found on your Tax Prep Advocates portal.
