IRS Drops and Detonates Bomb: Notice 2021-49

Out of the blue, IRS has exploded onto the scene with Notice 2021-49. What does it do? It not only defines the world as we’ll know it for the 3Q and 4Q 2021 ERC, but also . . .

In a huge, unexpected move, IRS attempts to blow away the landscape by opining that more than 50% C or S Corp shareholder’s wages sometimes don’t count as ERC qualifying wages. But, irony of ironies, sometimes such wages do qualify.

Is IRS’s new unsolicited opinion correct? That is for a court(s) of law to decide one day. The tens of thousands of dollars question on the table: What do we do next? Do we accept the new altered landscape or challenge IRS’s puzzling new stance? If challenge, how do we do so?
