Note 4 – Other receivable
Other receivable consisted of the following:
In 2022, WCI received an Employee Retention Tax Credit (“ERTC”) in the amount of $1,350,161, in junction with WCI’s professional employer organization’s receipt and application of the same to WCI leased employees. The ERTC was initially established by Section 2301 of Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act of 2020, as amended by Sections 206-207 of the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Relief Act and by Division EE of Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2021 and Section 9651 of American Rescue Plan Act of 2021; which is authorized by Section 3134 of the Internal Revenue Code. The Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2021 and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 amendments to the ERTC program provided eligible employers with a tax credit in an amount equal to 70% of qualified wages (including certain health care expenses) that eligible employers pay their employees after January 1, 2021 through December 31, 2021. The maximum amount of qualified wages taken into account with respect to each employee for each calendar quarter is $10,000 so that the maximum credit that an eligible employer may claim for qualified wages paid to any employee is $7,000 per quarter. The credit is taken against the an employer’s share of social security tax when WCI’s professional employer organization files applicable amended quarterly tax filings on Form 941-X for each applicable quarter. The receipt of the tax credit is expected to improve the WCI’s liquidity due to the effects of the credit. Although WCI’s professional employer organization currently anticipates receiving credits for wages paid in 2020 and 2021, there can be no assurances that WCI or WCI’s professional employer organization will continue to meet the requirements or that changes in the ERTC regulations including changes in guidance provided by the IRS with respect to the implementation and operation of ERTC, will not be adopted that could reduce or eliminate the benefits that WCI and WCI’s professional employer organization may receive or qualify for.
The $1,350,161 ERTC is reflected in other income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 in the condensed consolidated income statement. WCI received the ERTC based on qualitative information submitted. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, $303,061 was claimed against current payroll tax liabilities as they became due, and the remaining credit of $1,066,168 is included in other receivable in the condensed consolidated balance sheet at June 30, 2022.
The December 31, 2021, ERTC balance of $33,222, was received by Mentor as a refund in the first six months of 2022. The balance at December 31, 2022 is $0.
