On March 1, 2021, the Internal Revenue Service released guidance for employers claiming the employee retention credit for 2020 and how it relates to eligibility for the Paycheck Protection Program.

The guidance in Notice 2021-20 echoes the information the IRS has already provided in its employee retention credit FAQs, but includes some clarifications and discusses the retroactive changes to the CARES Act under the COVID-19 relief package that Congress passed in December that are applicable to 2020, mainly relating to expanded eligibility for the employee retention credit.
