You may be eligible for a refundable tax credit that could save you up to $64,000. Under two pieces of legislation passed related to COVID-19 relief, collectively called the Self-Employed Tax Credit (SETC), the credit allows qualified self-employed individuals to save by amending their 2020 and 2021 tax returns.
This tax credit is designed to offset pandemic losses.
You or your spouse were unable to operate your small business due to one or more of the following:
- Having COVID-19
- Being subjected to government quarantine/stay-at-home orders
- Caring for another individual, including children, who had COVID-19 or was forced to quarantine
- Having to care for a child due to restrictions on available childcare caused by the Pandemic
