These credits were further modified and extended through the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. We recognize that the details of those packages can be confusing. We can help you determine if these credits apply to your business.
